For those who are wondering about Cliff Howes, Cliff used to train with Bob and Cyd Griffin but sadly he passed away whilst attending a training session. He ran a large collie called Ben. His wife would have loved to have kept his dog but he was too strong for her and so Bob and Cyd kindly took him in and and gave him a wonderful home. Cliff died doing what he loved and the trophy is a lasting memorial to him.

Good news. At an Extraordinary General Meeting in 2015 it was decided to reduce the cost of joining Cornwall Agility Club. Membership normally runs from 1st January to 31st December but if you would like to join before 1st January 2017 we won't charge you a renewal fee for 2017.
The fees for joining as a new member and for renewals are:
Adult membership £5 a year
Children under 16 £2 a year
Details of where to email the form and how to pay for membership are given on the form.
As a member you will be entitled to reduced fees when you enter any of our shows or matches.
Throughout the winter we have special guest trainers visiting Cornwall and the training sessions fill up very quickly. Places at the sessions are offered to our members before anyone else.
Club members are also able to take part in regular training sessions at one of our locations and all are welcome to come to our fun days and barbecues. Family members and friends are invited as well and we have a lot of fun and laughs at these do's.
We're also hoping to run some more training camps for our members at Bodelva. These are tremendous fun and both dogs and humans go home pooped after a long weekend of laughs and great training with a little bit of competition thrown in as well.
If you have any questions you're welcome to speak to any members of the committee or get in touch via email. Contact details are on the contacts page.
Finally if you would like to take up the benefits of membership all we ask in return is that you give up a little bit of your time to help us run our shows and matches and that you're prepared to be rather silly from time to time.
If you've never helped at a show we've put together a special guide for the terrified and this explains all the jobs that need to be done on show day. No-one who is new to shows will be asked to do anything difficult and no members are asked to do anything that they aren't physically capable of doing. Please let us know if you need to sit down, stand up, not lift anything heavy etc. and we can find the right job for you.
We don't have a guide for being silly. Our members manage perfectly well by themselves.
