    Non-Member Participation in CNC Events
    Non-members are invited to our Spring and Fall Fun Days as a way to get to know members of the club before joining. Non-members are also welcome to attend any of our events as spectators, respecting the boundaries of the event and staying well back from them especially if they are accompanied by their dogs. Unfortunately, the cost and terms of our insurance have caused us to limit participation in events other than the Fun Days to members of CNC or other NCA regional clubs.

    If you are not a member of CNC or another NCA regional club and you want to participate in club activities other than the Fun Days, please contact Paula McPherson to get a membership application form or to ask questions about membership in our club. We hope you'll join!
