2014 CCAA Breeder’s Cup Invite List

The following have qualified for invitation to the 2014 CCAA Breeder’s Cup competition.  The event is being held Friday March 7, 2014 as part of the CCAA National Specialty weekend.  Entries close on February 19, 2014 at noon.  Here is the link to enter:  https://webentry.royjonesdogshows.com/

A word about the judging of the Breeder’s Cup: This event is judged by a panel of three judges and the highest combined score is the winner.  The format gives each dog time to show off individually and be viewed by the judges and the fancy.  The identity of these judges is known only to the Show Chair, Nancy Amburgey.  This levels the playing field for all participants.  The suspense of showing to unknown judges raises the stakes… this is an “ALL IN” showdown for the true players.  No guts, no glory.  This is the highest level of conformation competition for Cane Corsos in the USA and the invitees are to be commended on their hard work and success in qualifying.  New for 2014 is a People’s Choice award.  For participants and spectators alike, this is the best showcase for the top dogs in our breed.  Are you ready?

CCAA Notice

CCAA Members,

At 7:50 am this morning, December 13, 2013, the following was sent to the former President, Vice President and Treasurer from the CCAA attorney:

Ladies and Gentleman:

On Tuesday, December 10, the Directors of the Cane Corso Association of America, Inc. convened an emergency meeting to consider the correspondence recently received from the Treasurer, in which she asserted unilateral control over the Corporation’s monies.  She further threatened to tie up the Corporation’s assets until certain demands were agreed to.

In light of the Treasurer’s misappropriation of the Corporation’s funds and the acquiescence of the President and Vice President in her actions and threats, the Directors unanimously determined that it was in the best interest of the Corporation to remove the three individuals from their respective offices pursuant to the Corporation’s Bylaws and Florida law.

The Directors further unanimously determined that it was in the best interests of the Corporation to withdraw its monies from the existing bank account and to open new corporate accounts.  The transfer of funds was accomplished on Thursday, December 12.

Accordingly, you are no longer an officer of the Cane Corso Association of America, Inc.  Please immediately return any Association property to Archie “Steel” Campbell, Secretary, including without limitation, books, records, accounts, archives, bank statements credit or debit cards, corporate seals, and any other property.  If the items are not received byWednesday, December, 18, a report will be made to the American Kennel Club and legal action may be commenced.

Very truly yours,

D. Jay Hyman


CCAA Members,

The time has come to clear up some more misinformation. Specifically in regards to the lifetime membership of Mr. Ed Hodas. Mr. Hodas’ lifetime membership is not, nor was it ever, in danger of being rescinded at the request of the Board of Directors. Mr. Hodas received a renewal card in the mail from the Treasurer, as did most members. Apparently, there has been some confusion regarding his receipt of the card and the status of his membership. The Board of Directors has no intention of changing Mr. Hodas’ membership status. We believe that this was simply an oversight on the part of the Treasurer. NO Director has requested that Mr. Hodas pay membership dues, nor do we intend to.

Misleading post

The CCAA Board of Directors would like to notify the membership that the following post is incorrect.  As always, membership dues paid via paypal go directly to the club paypal account.  This is the latest in a series of intentionally misleading statements intended to undermine the credibility of the Directors.  Rest assured that the majority of the Directors were performing their duties while this was posted by a rogue member of the BOD that chose not to participate in conducting the official business of the club.

CCAA Supported Performance and Working Events for 2014

Most people become interested in performance events by seeing them demonstrated. To see it done well and with enthusiasm from dog and handler is very compelling and seems to spark an “I bet I could do that with my dog” type of feeling.

In an effort to create this type of exposure we want to bolster participation in performance events at our conformation specialties. This is why the highest level of our club performance title requires you must attain a small portion of your points at a CCAA supported event.

Last year we offered both the National in PA and the Chicago Dog Sport Festival as our designated events. This year we hope to have a few more: it is our aim to offer one CCAA supported AKC Obedience/Rally event in every region ideally in conjunction with the conformation regional, as well as supporting one protection sport event in each region.

 If you are in a club (IPO, PSA, FR, MR) that has more than 2-3 Corsos trialing or ready to trial and would be amenable to having CCAA support the entry of Cane Corsos at your trial, effectively making that a CCAA regional event, please contact Annie at annielwildmoser@gmail.com

Realistically we are still a year or more away from being in a position to host our own protection sport trial(s), but that is an important long-term goal.

Yours in Sport,

CCAA Working Committee
