    Mia, the Cattle Ranch rules indicate that no cameras are allowed on the grounds. Does that mean that the official photographer will be the only one allowed to take pictures during the 2012 MN? As you may know, several clubs have attending club members take photos of their club dogs for the clubs’ websites. Other handlers take personal photos during the event for personal use. Just wondering. Thanks! Rex

      Thanks for writing Rex. The MNRC Board and Mark L. Atwater have discussed the rules that govern photographers at the Forever Wild property. The Management at Forever Wild will give detailed instructions to everyone at the Handler’s Meeting prior to the 2012 Master National event. At that time they will explain all rules governing photographs to the group. We look forward to seeing you in Greensboro! Mia DiBenedetto

    Any further up date on camera rule? Bottom line …can I bring my camera to photograph my dog and friends? Elaine

    • Mia DiBenedetto says:

      Of course you can bring your camera. You will NOT be able to photograph any of the workers, and will not be allowed on the line near the dog, but you certainly can take photos of your friends, and your dog if you are not right in the ‘line of fire.’ There will be plenty of opportunities to get photos. Enjoy. See you in Alabama!

  3. Thanks for the clarification, Mia!
