2020 Rat Terrier Club of America National Specialty
2020 RTCA Specialty
We were informed that our host club (Timberlands Dog Fanciers) had decided to cancel their shows due to the probable added expenses due to the current COVID 19 situation.
The Tri-Cities Cluster in Kennewick WA invited us to move our Specialty to their show cluster – a four day event that takes place September 24-27th 2020. We also had the option to move to the Whidbey Island Kennel Club show in Monroe WA. Their Show is held November 11-13th 2020, with the 11th being Specialties and the weekend being all breed.
After weighing the options and polling the Membership as well as non Members who may plan on attending the show, it was decided that the Tri-Cities Cluster is the best option.
Our show has officially been moved to Friday, September 25th, 2020.
Superintendent is still Baray Event Services
The Judges will be:
Judge: Daryl Vice
Sweeps: Stacey B Davis
The Tri-Cities Cluster offers a number of nice advantages for the Members and the Rat Terrier fanciers. In addition to our Specialty, there are 4 All Breed Shows, three Obedience trials and 4 Rally trials.
They also will be offering Beginner Puppy shows two days, 3 Fast Cat Trials and Health Screening. RV Parking is available on site, and the weather should be conducive to travel for anyone coming from out of state.
There is a BBQ ($5 a person) on Saturday Night hosted by the clubs for all exhibitors.
We will be Supporting the All Breed Shows with prizes BOB, BOS, BOW, WD and WB. In addition, we will be offering a prize for high scoring in Obedience and Rally.
This should make it a fun weekend for everyone that can attend!
