Dear DCSR Friends, Faculty and Supporters,
You already know that the Novel Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) virus has turned the world
upside down and our homes are being inundated with increasing statistics and expert science-based
recommendations for prevention of spread. Our Wisconsin Governor has closed all schools indefinitely
and like other parts of the state, Door County businesses, dining, tavern and many lodging
establishments are also closing for an undetermined amount of time. Last evening Baileys Harbor
declared a State of Emergency at a special meeting. While we currently do not have any positive cases
in Door County, we know it is just a matter of time before that happens. We are writing to inform you
that after much consideration and with public health and safety as our top priority, we have decided to
cancel the 2020 Door County Scottie Rally. Please know this decision was difficult and not taken lightly
as we included seventeen long time DCSR attendees participating in our conference call weighing our
options. While the health landscape may look different in mid-May our Board felt it was important to
make a decision in your best interest now, so that you could plan accordingly and reschedule your
lodging for 2021. We at DCSR headquarters want to do all we can to keep each of you and our
For the past nineteen years the annual Rally has proved to be our largest fundraising event. A wide
number of non-profit organizations across North America have come to depend on our donations for
Scottie rescue, health and betterment of the breed. DCSR has the longest track record of any Scottie
group that raises and donates significant dollars for Scottish Terrier Health Research. For that reason,
we are asking you to consider making a donation or donating a portion or all of your registration so we
may be able to meet those needs. If you are currently registered for the 2020 Rally, and you need a
partial or full refund please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make those
arrangements as soon as possible. Inclusion of your complete mailing address within the content of your
email will help us expedite your refund or acknowledgement of your donation.
What the DCSR future holds:
- watch for our mid-May on line auction featuring some of the spectacular Rally items on the
SCOTTIE RALLY AUCTION https://www.facebook.com/groups/161784844456905/
- Watch for information on an informal gathering in Baileys Harbor in late September and email
us if you’d like to have simply an extended time to gather, share a meal or perhaps lure
coursing and a few behavioral topics?
- Mark your calendar for May 21-22, 2021 for the next Rally!
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and disappointment this decision to cancel the 2020 Door
County Scottie Rally may cause and we thank you so very much for your ongoing support.
