2020 National Specialty


2020 LCA National Specialty – 35 years!

You are invited to attend the 35th Annual LCA National Specialty. This year we are pleased to be hosting the national in beautiful Virginia Beach, VA. The area is steeped in history and those of you who are interested in the colonial period of US history will find plenty to do. Virginia Beach is the site of the first landing of Jamestown colonists in 1607 and the historic towns of Williamsburg and the Jamestown Settlement are a short one-hour drive away. There are lots of other sights to see right in Virginia Beach itself. The Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center, the Virginia Air and Space Center, the Norfolk Botanical Garden, First Landing State Park and Old Cape Henry Lighthouse are just a few of many places of interest to visit.
Virginia Beach is dog friendly and leashed dogs are welcomed on the Boardwalk (3 miles long!) and they can run free on the beach. There are several restaurants that will welcome you and your dog too.
All show events will be held on the grounds of our show hotel, the beautiful Founders Inn so unless you want to see the ocean or other sights in the area, there is no reason to drive anywhere once you’ve arrived.
We look forward to having you join us as we celebrate our 35th year.

Attached you will find the 2020 Planning Booklet. We have prepared this booklet to assist you as you plan for your trip to attend Founding Leos. Our event takes place in Virginia Beach, VA from March 24th through March 29th.
