Kansas Sunflower FieldAMCA 2019 National Specialty LogoThe Alaskan Malamute Club of America (AMCA) will hold its National Specialty at the Capitol Plaza Hotel and Conference Center in the Central Region location of Topeka, Kansas. The regional dates are October 27, 2019 through October 29, 2019 and the national dates October 30, 2019 through November 2, 2019.

AMAL plans to participate in its usual events:

  • Table sales of donated items during the week
  • The AMCA auction. This year’s will be a silent auction
  • Looking into offering a local AMAL beer or wine

We were unable to get participants for this year’s planned Rescue Showcase. We’re hoping for a good turnout at next year’s event!

All affiliates are encouraged to attend and donations for the table sales and the auction are very much needed (mailing details to be provided later here and in the newsletter)! Be thinking of good ideas. Some past successful sales items include these breed-specific items: books, t-shirts and sweatshirts, jewelry, hats, statues, paintings, things that fit into a suitcase (for travelers), hand crafted iron dog leash hangers, dog sled, holiday items and Alaskan collector items. Anything an Alaskan malamute lover would enjoy!

Donations for AMAL table sales and auction items may be shipped in advance beginning September 20, 2019:
