Cancellation of May Show
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.
