  Additional Information:

Good afternoon members,


Hope you and your family are safe and enjoying the spring/summer after this terrible Covid pandemic.

This year the 2021 Nationals are being conducted at the MUTC facility in Butlerville Indiana.

I'm writing to keep you informed on same changes that were made for this year's event and hoping it will enhance your stay and training at the facility.

  1. We were able to secure the Green Barn facility on the main drive where registration, safety briefings and hospitality will once again occur.

  1. A planner (Dena) was brought on board once again with planing the event. This includes the housing, food, pic-nic, membership meeting and, hoping the process of our meals being served in the dining hall on base.

  1. We have secured the PRV's to the right when entering the base, (pictures included). These units house 14-24 people and have a color television, a full-scale kitchen, some sleep 3 people per room-dormitory style, bathrooms are shared. Please bring toiletries and towels. Washer and Dryers are also located in units. They all have bed linens. There is limited amount of rooms available for k9's to stay in and they will need to be created if you so desire to keep k9 inside. (stay tuned for possible Covid restrictions).
