Championship Show Update


New date for BUBA

AT THE recently held British Utility Breeds Association AGM and Council Meeting, the news emerged that due to an administrative mix-up at the County Showground, Bingley Hall, Stafford, the 2002 championship show has been forced to change its date to Saturday 30th November.

The Association is grateful for the co-operation of the Kennel Club, and also, in particular, the Eastern Counties Poodle Club who have also moved their championship show date back one week so that the poodle breeds did not lose CCs. The Association is fortunate that all the judges are available for the new date.

All the officers were re-elected to their positions and the majority of the Breed Representatives remain the same. The Financial results for 2001 were satisfactory and in the light of this, it was decided that the fees for the 2002 show will remain the same as they were for last year – £12 for CC breeds and £10 for non-CC and Variety entrants; £2 for subsequent classes; free parking and free admissions and the opportunity to win £10 in prize money offered in every breed class and even more in the stakes classes.

Additional monetary prizes will again be on offer for BIS and BPIS.
