Purina Farms/All Breed Show Update
The brochure for KerryFest will be available for download later this week. Since the last update we have made the decision to hold all KerryFest events except the Challenge of Champions in Show Tent 1. In the case of rain the ring will be under the tent. The all breed shows on Saturday and Sunday except for Kerry Blues will be judged indoors. Holding our shows on the Purina Show Field will allow for better grooming and movement. We continue to fall under the 1400 dog on Saturday and Sunday so be sure and get you entries in once entries open.
We continue to plan the weekend and hope to announce all the plans within the next week. We will have enhanced hospitality this year. Our goal is to have the complete plans for KerryFest available within the next week.
Onofrio will be the superintendent. Susan Gordon with be the Secretary of the Friday St. Louis Specialty.
