- Apr 18, 10:30 AMLocation To Be ConfirmedFollowing consultation with the KC we have put the date of the AGM back a few weeks to hopefully provide a better opportunity to proceed with a meeting as planned. Appropriate guidance will be sought nearer the time and the formal notice will be sent to members in line with the IWSA constitution.
- Jul 17, 10:00 AMN.E.C. National Exhib. Centre Birmingham, North Ave, Marston Green, Birmingham B40 1NT, UKOur 45th Championship show scheduled for Saturday 17th July 2021 will now go ahead and will be held at the NEC Birmingham, as a Partnership Show at Crufts on Gundog Day, 17th July 2021 Championship Show - Judge Mrs Jenny Miller (Feorlig)
As self-isolation is mandated for the foreseeable future because of the virus pandemic, the IWSA committee has rescheduled events planned for 2020 as follows. However, if circumstances do not change for the better these events may be subject to further change or cancellation.
PLEASE NOTE - The March 2020 Open Show (Judge Sue Margerison) has now been cancelled, but efforts are being made to try and rearrange this for later in the year - possibly November, and probably in conjunction with another open show scheduling IWS. For those people who entered the show, refunds can be requested from the treasurer.
UPDATE - CRUFTS 2021 and CHANGE OF DATES
The Kennel Club has announced that it is their intention to hold Crufts 2021 over the period of the 15th to 18th July instead of the planned dates in March. As a result of this announcement the IWSA has been contacted by the KC to discuss the options available to us as this of course means that our Championship Show judged by Mrs Jenny Miller (Feorlig) scheduled for 17th July 2021 will now conflict with Gundog Day at Crufts.
The IWSA committee is currently reviewing the options which have been made available to us with a view to making a decision in the next few days. We will of course communicate the new plans to you at the earliest opportunity.
