Southern Counties schedules available
Southern Counties schedules are now available and entries can be made on line at www.fossedata.co.uk It is very easy for anyone with access to the Internet. Not only does it save postage costs it also ensures that exhibitors have an immediate confirmation of their entry. Once you have registered you will be able to enter shows much more quickly as all your details and those of your dogs are retained on the secure server, you do not have to enter everything again next time.
Like so many other societies, Southern Counties has had to increase entry fees this year. The first entry is for those breeds with tickets is now £22 with non-CC breeds at £12.50 and all subsequent classes £3.50. However, do not forget that car parking and entry to the show for all exhibitors and everyone travelling with them is free. Caravans are also welcome from Tuesday May 20th so Bath Championship Show and Guildford open show are both within an easy drive without having to pack up and move to another site.
This year the association has introduced a Members Stakes Class, a Special Stakes class for Reserve CC winners and Junior and Adult handling classes with product prizes donated by Arden Grange. The very successful Charity Stakes Class are also scheduled. Fosse Data has provided prize money and all entry fees will be donated to the Kennel Club Charitable Trust.
Several new breeds scheduled without CCs this year. They are Dogue de Bordeaux, Field Spaniels and Portuguese Podengos. There is one change of judge – Estrela Mountain Dogs will now be judged by Terry Munro.
Their usual advert with full details of classes and an entry form will be appearing in the canine press on March 28th so you do not need to send for a schedule. However, if you would like a schedule, one can be downloaded from www.fosedata.co.uk or you can order one by e-mailing email@example.com. But don’t forget that if you can e-mail you can just as easily enter ‘on-line’.
