March 20, 2020 UPDATE: 2020 NCA NATIONAL SPECIALTY REFUNDS

The 2020 Show Committee, with NCA Board of Directors approval, would like to communicate to the membership and those who were planning on attending this year’s National Specialty the latest information on refunds. Please note the following general policies and processes:

1. Reservations for 2020 National Specialty events are not able to be transferred to future 2021 National Specialty events.

2. Refunds will be for the full amount of purchase – no partial refunds will be offered.

3. Refunds will be credited in the same manner as original purchase – credit card or check.

4. If you placed your original order by mailing a check, please request a refund by sending an email to: refunds@ncanationalspecialty.org

5. If you placed your original order through the NCA National Specialty online store you will receive an email (sent to the email address you used in the online store) listing those items that you purchased that are eligible for a refund. THE ONLY WAY TO OBTAIN A REFUND FOR ORDERS PLACED VIA THE ONLINE STORE IS TO REPLY TO THE OFFICIAL EMAIL REQUESTING ONE. Phone calls or individual emails will not constitute a valid refund request. PLEASE DO NOT request refunds until you receive your official refund email which will be sent out in the next few weeks.

6. If you do not reply to the official refund email you are sent (see #5 above for online orders) or have not requested a refund by email to the above referenced email address (see #4 above for mailed in orders) by June 1, 2020 no refund will be issued and all monies paid will be considered a donation to offset expenses for the 2020 National Specialty.

7. All refunds will be processed and returned by June 30, 2020

8. If you wish to make a donation to help offset expenses for the 2020 National Specialty, you may do so via an option found in the NCA National Specialty Online Store once it reopens. Donations of any monetary size are accepted and appreciated!

While no shipping fee will be charged for items that were to have been picked up, a donation to cover these costs would be gratefully accepted. You can make your donation via an option found in the NCA National Specialty Online Store once it reopens.

We thank you for your understanding and patience as we work through the refund process as it is not an easy one. The kindness and appreciation shown to myself and the hardworking volunteers on the 2020 National Specialty Committee has been overwhelming and greatly appreciated as we all put our disappointment behind us and move forward to happier times and plans for the 2021 National Specialty. Stay tuned for exciting updates in the near future!

Kind regards,

"Nana"

by Roger Powell

 

reprinted from Newf Tide

How often do you let your Newf be a nanny? Newfs will be nannies. All you have to do is let them. They need no training.  

When Virginia, our daughter, was six, we entered Kati in a draft test sponsored by the Bear Mountain Newf Club. Consie handled Kati in the test and, during the out-of-sight down; I hid so as not to distract Kati but watched her unbeknownst. Virginia played loudly with other kids in a wooded area behind the ring used for basic control. Clearly, Kati could hear Virginia and she was concerned. I watched Kati turn her head this way and that, looking for Consie or me. Finally, when she concluded that neither Consie nor I were paying proper attention to Virginia, she sat up, turned around, and watched Virginia until Consie returned. There was nanny work to be done and she did it.
