2016 SHOW INFORMATION - IMPORTANT CHANGES BELOW
We are a small, local show with only 2 show days. With the current trend of AKC shows going to four or more days, this makes us unique and allows for a friendlier experience for exhibitors. We have a brand new, indoor location the Dome Arena, Minett Hall, 2695 E. Henrietta Road, Henrietta, NY 14467. YES, YOU ARE READING THIS CORRECT, WE HAVE MOVED OUR LOCATION AGAIN, but it is just a little south of last year's show site and still indoors. Available hotels will be the same as 2015.
In addition, we have instituted our "old" specialty show day on the Friday before our all-breed shows. We will have two specialty shows (Boxer and German Shepherd) and better yet, the German Shepherd Club of Rochester will be sponsoring an all-breed rally and obedience trial. This gives exhibitors the opportunity to earn a new performance title in one weekend.
Our club also sponsors title completion rosettes for both confirmation and performance. The specialty clubs will offer special trophies and our club offers rosettes for BOB, BOS, and BOW placements for our the Boxer and GSD entries in our all-breed shows. With a professional photographer (J.C. Photography) on site, major award pictures for both confirmation and performance will be available. In addition, our professional photographer will also take special photos, such as breed group pictures, etc. for our exhibitors.
And for a small, local show, our club is going all out to offer several special events at our all-breed shows. We will have the National Owner Handler Series, 4-6 month puppy competition, best puppy and best veteran competition. We also discount our entry fees for puppies, bred-by exhibitors, and junior showmanship. Anyone who looks at multiple premium lists will know how unusual it is for a small, local show to offer all of these.
Although the Dome facility is normally large enough to support our shows and leave room for indoor grooming/crating, for this year we will only be in one of the two buildings (Minett Hall). Therefore, grooming will be outside under tents, like it was in 2015. Once we secure the full site for 2017, there will be room for indoor grooming/crating.
There is a much larger parking area and room for camping. There will be no electric for camping. We will not have to "police" the parking area to make sure there are no saving of spots or pop ups. We will be charging a parking fee of $5.00 per car or $10.00 for the weekend. This includes Friday, Saturday and Sunday shows.
Due to space restrictions for rings, our all-breed shows on Saturday, June 25 and Sunday, June 26 will be limited to the first 750 dogs. Be sure to get your entries in as early as possible.
