|SKC and Driffield swap dates
THE Scottish Kennel Club recently announced that an agreement has been reached to exchange its August Championship Show dates with Driffield.
Owing to the many Championship shows held in the South of the UK during the summer months of July, August and September, all the travelling involved and the high costs of accommodation during the ever-expanding Edinburgh Festival, the SKC thought this move would be beneficial to all involved. In a press release late last week they said: ‘We are happy to report that the exchange of show dates has now been approved by The Kennel Club in London. SKC can confirm that plans are in place to write to our Judges personally to ensure their availability is not affected by the move and also to Show Societies who may be affected by the change of dates. SKC hopes this will prove to be beneficial and welcomed by everyone involved in dog showing. The dates and group split for October 2021 are as follows: Saturday, 2nd October 2021, Working, Pastoral, Utility, Toy, Sunday, 3rd October 2021 and Gundog, Hound, Terrier
