CCRC Annual General Meeting and Open Show, 24 February 2024
There’s just a week to go folks…
We are looking forward to seeing you all for the CCRC AGM and Open Show. Don’t forget we are at our new venue, The Kennel Club Building, Stoneleigh Park, Stoneleigh, Kenilworth, CV8 2LZ. The show opens at 10.00am, and the AGM starts at 10.30am.

Yearbooks will be available, there will also be the fabulous Club Shop, and the Club Raffle, with all prize donations gratefully received. Trophies will be presented, please don’t forget if you’re a current trophy holder, to bring your trophy/trophies with you so they can be presented to the new 2023 winners. There will be awards for the new 2023 Show Champions, the Champions cake, and the annual toast to the Club.

There will be tea and coffee available, unfortunately there’s no catering at the venue, but never fear, Aly has been rallying everyone and arranging the now traditional ‘Curly Picnic’, which just seems to get better each time…

Judging commences at 11.30am, and there’s a fabulous entry for our Judge, Heather Barber (Blanshard)
73 Dogs making 92 Entries, and 8 not for competition. Heather has owned and worked Curlies for 35 years, she is a breed specialist, and is of course also one of our Club Working Co-ordinators.
