This year the U P seminar has been moved to Escanaba, MI. The
area around Escanaba has quite a few K9 teams that we are hoping can
attend the seminar. Delta Force Security out of Gladstone has stepped
up to host the seminar. Delta Force has numerous contacts in the area
and has secured numerous training sites in the area for us to use.

All teams will meet at the UP Michigan fairgrounds on May 14 th at 9:30
am. We will meet by the grand stands off of 12 th Ave North. Training on the
14th will take place at the fairgrounds and a local trucking company
that’s approximately half a mile from the fairgrounds. Day 2 of the
seminar will take place at Delta Force headquarters in Gladstone, MI as
well as a Dock area on Lake Michigan. Delta Force is having a ship
docked for detection work at the lake.

Training for the 2 days will consist of detection (narcotics/explosives),
aggression control and real life scenarios for patrol work. Delta Force is
working on having a blast site for the explosive dogs to run a post blast

As in the past , the seminar is open to all NAPCH members. We will NOT
be doing any certification during the seminar. All equipment and aids
will be provided along with lunch and dinner on Thursday the 14th .
