AHCS will now be holding their postpone Golden Anniversary Show from 2020 and their 2021 championship show on 1st October 2021, as a result of SKC now holding both their championship shows on 30th September, which is the show we should have held ours in conjunction with. Kennel Club ruling does not allow 3 sets of tickets to be awarded on the same day.
Championship Show 2021 - Judges Claire Hindley (Dogs) and Jackie Day (Bitches) will be held in the morning
Golden Anniversary Show - Judges Richard Hurl (Dogs) and Susan Rhodes (Bitches) will be held in the afternoon.
At our committee meeting on Sunday we discussed the likely scenario that our May championship show would have to be postponed. Today's news from the SKC confirms what we had suspected. The AHCS is actively looking to secure a new date later in 2021, we will make an announcement as soon as possible.
SCOTTISH KENNEL CLUB MAY CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW
The Officers and Committee of the Scottish Kennel Club wish to confirm that, in line with the current Scottish and UK Government guidelines, our Championship Show, due to be held 21st – 23rd May 2021, cannot go ahead as planned. As always, the health and safety of our exhibitors, judges, staff and volunteers is our main priority which I am sure you will understand.
We are currently discussing with both the Kennel Club and the Royal Highland Centre the possibility of rescheduling this show to a later date in the year. Once we have considered all options available to us, a further update will be shared on both our Facebook page and SKC website.
We will now proceed in contacting the Judges, Contractors/Suppliers and Secretaries of Clubs/Societies direct to inform them of this decision and thank everyone for your patience and understanding meantime.
We would especially like to thank all our exhibitors for their continued support during this difficult time and look forward to seeing you in the future.
Unfortunately we have had to cancel our June Open Show held in conjunction with Dundee Canine Club. Dundee Canine Canine Club are cancelling their show due to the council not allowing events to be held at Camperdown Country Park until they are at least a Category 1 in the Covid 19 restrictions.
