Just a bit late, and for the interest of those who regularly show their dogs. I have had a look at dates for championship shows which schedule classes for FS, and including shows which have already gone I have found that we have three Thursday shows, six on Fridays, four on Saturdays, two on Sundays and one on a Monday (a Bank holiday). This can’t be good news for those who want to show, and aren’t always able to sacrifice a day’s holiday to be able to enter and get to a show. Just guessing – it should not be as bad next year.
If you read posts on facebook you might already have seen that Windsor show, which will be an all-breed show from 2019, has re-introduced classes for FS this year, when the judge for six classes will be Mr G Corish, but unfortunately this will be one of the shows which will be on a Friday.
