Events

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. 2021 events are similarly being reviewed.  Circumstances continue to change so planning may of necessity need to be  revised in the light of prevailing or expected condition and to ensure everyone's safety events may therefore be subject to further rescheduling 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 sadly necessary to cancel Crufts 2021 (15th to 18th July). As a result of this announcement plans for the IWSA 45th Championship Show judged by Mrs Jenny Miller (Feorlig) need to be revised. The IWSA committee is currently reviewing  options with a view to making a decision on how to proceed over the next few days. We will of course communicate the new plans at the earliest opportunity.
