Cancellation of May Show

Dear Members:

The OKC Executive have unanimously voted today, 3 March 2021, that due to numerous factors principally concerning COVID-19 and by ensuring our staff, vendors and participants Health and Safety continue to be our top priority, we will not be holding our annual Dog Show in Richmond in May, 2021. 

We realize there may be disappointment however the Pandemic is still very prevalent and not worth endangering our staff, members, participants, attendees, Judges, Ring Stewards, Volunteers, Vendors and Suppliers. Hopefully in May, 2022 we will have fantastic Dog Show with full participation.
