XCA NATIONAL SPECIALTY INFORMATION - 9/23/2017
Hi All ...
I know everyone has been awaiting info for National in September ....
I apologize for the wait , but I was waiting for confirmation of judge panel and shows before posting....
So the National is being held at Purina Farms in Gray Summit,MO on September 23, 2017.
Our show is held concurrently with the Gateway All-Breed cluster (3 days - Fri, Sat, Sun) as well as a Non -Sporting Group show on Thursday.
The Gateway Non-Sporting Club has hired Nancy Hafner for Xolos and Non-Sporting Group on Thursday .
Rolla Missouri Kennel Club has hired Steve Hayden for Xolos and Non-Sporting Group on Friday.
Spirit of the Heartland Kennel Club has hired Mrs Linn Klingel Brown for Xolos and Non-Sporting Group on Saturday.
Jefferson County Kennel Club of Missouri has hired Joe Walton for Xolos and Non-Sporting Group on Sunday.
Our Specialty show will be held Sat as well (probably midday) and our Breed Judge is Kathy Lawson, Sweepstakes Judge is Cledith Wakefield, and Junior Showmanship Judge is Ted Lee.
There is no Agility or Obedience associated with the Specialty - due to space , the All-Breed clubs have at this point not elected to offer them .
The Gold Coast Xolo Club and XCA are alternating supporting entries for all four days to make this a great show to remember !
And as you all are aware, we are finishing sign-up for the trophy pledges .
I have also secured a Host Hotel for this year - the Holiday Inn Six Flags is very close to show site and is VERY dog friendly and TOTALLY set up for dog enthusiasts with a dog bathing house , ACRES of grass to exercise dogs, and exterior entrance rooms in back of hotel if desired. More info in the premium list - if you want to book a room , just let them know you are with the Xoloitzcuintli Club and the room rate is $119.95/nite, with a one-time $35 non-refundable cleaning fee for dogs in the room. (Refund available for cancellations up to 14 days prior.)
The Awards Banquet and Dinner will also be at the Holiday Inn Hotel on Friday evening, Sept 22,2017 with annual membership meeting . Details re: menu and dinner payment form will be in the premium list.
We also have info coming re: National memorabilia with logo for show ( t-shirts, mugs, totes, etc...) that will be available for purchase online ....
Please be sure to support the club if you are not able to go to the show by bidding on auction items or donating things for the raffle ... ANYTHING is acceptable - from beds to collars to poop bags - ALL will be a great help !!
I hope everyone is as EXCITED as I am for this 30th Annual exhibition of our Beloved Xoloitzcuintli!!!
