I have been running dogs at Wills Park for 14 years now in the arena. Some of the dog agility events held there are qualifying events for shows such as the AKC Nationals, the World Championships, and the Purina Dog Challenge events (you may have seen on t.v.). I sincerely hope those who have a say/vote in this decision will do their research and not just take someone at their word on the financial issues that have been brought up. Not everyone plays soccer, tennis or swims. Horse and dog shows may not be for everyone, but why take it away from those who do love it? These shows do indeed bring in people from other states who frequent the local restaurants and hotels. Please think long and hard about taking this venue away from those of us who love it.
