We have notified the KC of our intention to reschedule the Championship Show to 24th March. All our judges, with the exception of Sue Holt, are available on that date. We have invited SallyAnn Elkington to judge the Longhaired Dachshunds with CCs, subject to KC approval.

For those exhibitors who are unable to attend on 24th or Longhaired Dachshund exhibitors who would prefer not to show under the replacement judge, the Association will either:

    • offset your entry fees against the next SDA show (June Open), or
    • refund your entry

We regret that we cannot hold entries over until the 2019 Championship show. If you had ordered a catalogue and are unable to attend, we will be pleased to send you your copy after 24th March.

To apply for a refund and/or your catalogue, please send a stamped addressed envelope to the Secretary, no later than 17th March (postmark). Send to Wendy Starkey, 66 Palma Park, Loughborough, Leics.  LE11 5LB.

Our understanding of the situation regarding entries, from the KC, is as follows:

For events that are rescheduled within twelve weeks, the original catalogue may be used with eligibility for classes remaining the same as for the original date.

Dogs should stay in the age class entered even if they would be too old due to a new date. As long as the criteria are met, the JW points can be claimed as if the show took place on the original date. No further entries can be taken.
