It’s time to welcome in the New Year with an additional specialty opportunity…. For 2018 the North Central Newfoundland Club has committed to hosting three (3) specialty events. These very special events will be held at the Lake County Fairgrounds in Grayslake, Illinois on Friday, June 15 and Saturday, June 16, 2018. The specialty events will consist of a concurrent specialty on Friday following the regular all-breed show Newfoundland Best of Breed judging AND two independent specialties on Saturday. The club will also support the Newfoundland breed entry at each of the all-breed shows.
Remember, EACH of these specialty events will have sweepstakes classes for puppies and veterans over 7 years of age – including a Best in Sweepstakes, Best of Opposite Sex in Sweepstakes, Best Veteran Dog and Best Veteran Bitch;, regular class judging for dogs and bitches; non-regular class judging for veterans, working, stud dog and brood bitch; Best of Breed judging; and a junior showmanship competition
The judges for the day have been selected and are pending approval by the AKC as follows:
Concurrent Specialty, Friday, June 15, 2018 Mr. David Haddock, Breed and Junior Showmanship; Mrs. Virginia Davis, Sweepstakes / Veteran Sweepstakes
Specialty Show #1 / Saturday, June 16, 2018 Mrs. Janet Cohen, Breed and Junior Showmanship; Mrs. Judith Cooper, Sweepstakes / Veteran Sweepstakes
