ISCA 2020 NATIONAL SPECIALTY ANNOUNCEMENT
After much discussion, the NEC and the ISCA Board of Directors have voted to move the ISCA 2020 National Specialty from June to August.
With not knowing how long the COVID-19 will affect our membership, there is a better chance of having our National in August than in June. We hope things will be back to normal by then and we can have a wonderful National Specialty.
We are still going to be in Greeley Colorado, and we are scheduled to follow the Greeley Kennel Club shows. The new dates are Tuesday, August 18th – Sunday August 23rd and will be as follows:
Tuesday, August 18th – Agility (2 trials)
Wednesday, August 19th – Obedience/Rally
Thursday, August 20th – Puppy Sweepstakes/Veteran Sweepstakes
Friday, August 21st – Dogs, 4-6- month puppies
Saturday, August 22nd – Bitches
Sunday, August 23rd – BOB, Juniors, Pee-Wee
Wednesday, August 19th- Health Seminar
Thursday, August 20th – Blood Draw Clinic
Friday, August 21st – Top 20/Annual Awards
Saturday, August 22nd – Annual Meeting/ Region 4 Hospitality/ 70’s Bar-B-Que
The Irish Setter Club of Colorado has two specialties in conjunction with the Greeley Kennel Club shows that will give Irish Setter exhibitors a chance to show their puppies and dogs prior to the national.
We are waiting for final approval from AKC but should not have any issue with this move. The national team is working hard to make the quick changes.
At this time DO NOT make any changes to your hotel reservation in June. The hotel and I are working out the details to make it easy for everyone. Greeley KC has the hotel blocked until Monday, so we do not have all the rooms for Sunday and Monday arrival. Once plans are finalized, the obedience and agility people to be able to get rooms on Monday night for their competitions early in the week so I will be contacting them first. We have the full hotel starting Tuesday.
If you decide to come in for the Greeley shows you will need to make your hotel reservations through the GKC link NOT ISCA. You will not get the ISCA rate before Monday. When the GKC premium comes out they will have the info to make reservations on their block of rooms. ISCA will be sending a new link and reservation start date very soon.
I will be calling everyone individually to work out details regarding preferred parking and RV parking. GKC is working with me to make sure we have the Irish Setter exhibitors that will be attending Greeley KC in the correct spot, close to where our national will be.
Please be patient! There are many moving parts with hosting an event the magnitude of ISCA’s National and it will take me some time to make all these changes. We will keep everyone in the loop.
Remember your health and safety is our primary concern!
