The Florida West Coast Miniature Schnauzer Club was founded in May, 1964 by a group of people in the St Petersburg -
A highlight each Spring was the Fun and Puppy Match with a picnic at one of the area Parks. Grooming and training classes were held periodically. The first AKC licensed Specialty was held in conjunction with the Tampa Bay KC in Jan, 1970. The Judge was noted breeder-
Achievements of some early dogs of Club members included Ruth Miller's CH Jor Jan's Bubbling Over (by CH Helarry's Harmony), the first female champion in FL. Her son, CH Rujax Royal Randy (by CH Dorem Denominator), became the #1 miniature schnauzer in the US in the late 1960's. Lori Bush's CH Shorlaine Dynamic Flash (dam CH Bethel's News Flash), a Best in Show winner, became the #2 in US in the mid 1970's and a top producer of 21 CH's (including CH R Bo's Victory Flash, a Best in Show winner and #1 MS in the US plus top producer of 30 champions). Dynamic Flash is still figuring in pedigrees of winners today. Connie Mercer owned and finished the first Black and Silver champion in Florida, CH Walsh's Blackberry Sundae. An item of interest was the fact that there were 4 generations of winners in FWCMSC specialties from CH Bethel's News Flash (BOS in 1970) owned by Lori Bush, to son, CH Shorlaine Dynamic Flash (BB 1977), bred and owned by Lori, to his daughter CH Liebestraum's Bad Mamma Jamma, BB in '84, after Best in Sweeps the previous year ) bred and owned by Ginnie Rice and also his son, CH Marley's Touchdown (BB '83) bred and owned by Millie Marvin. Succeeding these was a fourth generation in double granddaughter of Dynamic Flash, CH Datura's Delta Dart, (Best of Winners '88). There have been numerous Champions, obedience titleists and agility titleists of Club members over the years. All of these were owned by FWCMSC members.
In 2003 the club decided to change its name to reflect that its membership from all over the state of Florida. Thus, the name changed to Central Florida Miniature Schnauzer Club.
