    Regrettably, for personal reasons, both Ed Greer, our breeder Montgomery Concurrent Specialty Judge, and Anita Norman our West Coast Futurity Judge, have withdraw from their assignments. 

    The Board of Governors has approved John Constantine-Amodei to judge the Concurrent Specialty on Thursday following the Hatboro Kennel Club breed judging.

    Melanie Fledges will replace Anita Norman as one of the Futurity judges.

    The USKBTC Board of Governors has posted the Rules governing the Haymarket Futurity and Maturity.  You can download the rules by going to US Club then Haymarket Futurity and Maturity in the sidebar.

    Please note this one clarification in the rules.  If you nominated a litter previously but didn't show a particular dog from the litter in the Futurity that dog remains eligible for the Maturity as well as any dog you did show from the litter in Futurity.

    No one was safe in the Checkerboard Cafe on Saturday night at KerryFest 2019 when our first annual Kerryoke Evening was held.  It was kicked off with a traditional tune by one of our judges Ron Ramsay followed by the irrepressibleConnie Robbins and her love for the Beatles!  

    The evening continued until after 9PM...a new record for our Saturday evening hospitality.  Thanks to Nick Fletcher who queued up the tunes.

    We do have an album....just too bad its not a "talkie."
