2020 Traveling Specialty Scheduled for September at the Carolina Cluster

04/08/2020 3:31 PM | Web Team (Administrator)

The Premium List for both the Carolina Cluster and the Carolina Terrier Association will be available in early August.


Traveling Specialty Announcement

The Governors of the USKBTC have been looking for ways to support our exhibitors during the Covid-19 period.  The impact of cancelling shows and specifically KerryFest and the Pittsburgh Specialty weekend has reduced significantly the ability to compete and earn majors.

In order to provide the opportunity to compete the Carolina Cluster and the Carolina Terrier Association will host 2 Specialties…..the Traveling Specialty and another Specialty sponsored by the USKBTC.  In addition, there are 4 all-breed shows.  All together there will be 6 opportunities to compete over 4 days.  The Carolina Cluster starts on Thursday and ends on Sunday.  The Traveling Specialty shows will be on Friday and the second Specialty on Sunday morning.  The dates are September 10 through 13and the superintendent is MBF.

We considered standing with an existing Chapter Club but to do so would not increase the number of potential majors.  This will create the potential opportunity for 12 majors in one location over 4 days.  The point schedule is very favorable for 5 pointers in dogs and bitches.  NOHS is offered at ALL shows.

The Greensboro show site is fully air conditioned, motor home parking with electrical hookups, and ample free grooming adjacent to the ring. 

This is a very "fluid" situation and if our venue becomes available later in the year we will move to that date to enhance the chances of holding the shows.  

The judges are as follows:

Thursday Afternoon-AB                            Butch Schulman

Friday Morning-AB                                     Dana Cline

Friday Afternoon-CTA/Traveling             Billie Kneale

Saturday Morning-AB                                Charlotte Patterson

Saturday Afternoon-CTA                           Scott Kellogg

Sunday Morning-AB/Spec                        David Kirkland

The Clubs are Greater Hickory KC, Carolina KC, and Carolina Terrier Association

We plan to extend “southern” hospitality while exhibitors are in Greensboro.  Hospitality plans are evolving and will be shared closer to the event.

Mark your calendars and see you in the Gate City, Greensboro, NC in September.
