WILL undoubtedly have read that Manchester championship show
is moving to Stafford from 2004, when it has been granted the
weekend in January immediately before the traditional date for
the National Working and Pastoral Breeds Society open show at
the Sports Connexion.
Owing to the closeness of both venue and date and with no less than 21 Working and Pastoral breeds with CCs scheduled at Manchester, an application was made to the Kennel Club to transfer the open show to the date in February vacated by Manchester. In 2004 that will be February 14th and 2005 February 12th. All judges have been booked for both 2004 and 2005.
