Membership Application FAQs

When and where are the meetings?

On the Home Page of this website is a calendar with a list of upcoming events. We meet 6-8 times a year. At the beginning of the year we determine meeting dates for the first 6-8 months and then in late Spring we determine meeting dates for the rest of the year. Currently the meetings are held either in a Library conference room or at a member's house.

We have two parties a year, a Summer BBQ and a Christmas party. to find out about meetings, check out the Calendar, it will list the Date and Time of the meeting. Please use the website's Contact Us form to let us know you wish to attend and we'll send you the location. We welcome guests and would love to have new people attend.

Do you have to show Great Danes to Join the club?

No! Many of our members are not showing Great Danes,  they have either never showed a Great Dane or have retired Great Danes at home and no Great Dane currently being shown. This is a Great Way to be involved with our beloved Great Danes without showing a Dane.
