It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we have learned about the passing of one of our long time members: Ann Barbash
Ann and her husband Steve, having showed and bred German Shepherd dogs for over 30 years, have been staunch supporters of both the German Shepherd Club of Rochester, Inc. and GVKC. Our club could count on Ann to "tell it like is" whenever we had discussions regarding club business. Despite a "ruffled feather" here and there, we depended on Ann's input. We will miss her infectious smile and hearty laugh.
We would invite all exhibitors who have not yet put in their entry for our June shows, to do so in her honor.
2016 SHOW INFORMATION
The 2016 show is now behind us and we want to thank all of the exhibitors, vendors, specialty clubs, members, MBF, and friends of GVKC for helping us once again.
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. In addition, we have instituted our "old" specialty show day on the Friday before our all-breed shows.
Our club also sponsors title completion rosettes for both confirmation and performance. The specialty clubs who support entries will offer special trophies and our club offers rosettes for BOB, BOX, and BOW. With a professional photographer (J.C. Photography) on site, major award pictures for both confirmation and performance are 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. Anyone who looks at multiple premium lists will know how unusual it is for a small, local show to offer all of these.
