STCA Specialty Show

2016 STCA Specialty Show Information

memoryOnce again the STCA will be hosting a very special weekend of shows and fun filled events capped off by our 104th National Specialty Show on Sunday, October 9, 2016. This year’s show will be held in memory of longstanding STCA member and Past President Carol Roever Simonds, and it will be another not-to-be-missed event, so mark your calendars and make your reservations now!

The weekend will kick off on Thursday and Friday, October 6 and 7, with the STCA supported entry at Hatboro Dog Club Shows, which will honor the memory of longtime Skye Terrier supporter and club member Cathy Nelson. Special trophies for major breed placements will display some of the beautiful artwork done by Cathy for our breed Illustrated Standard. Our Thursday evening event, held at our host hotel, will be a “Fun Night” Buffet Dinner with Skye items galore for sale, and the always popular auction, with a few special pieces waiting for the right price.

The Friday evening event will see us again at the Host Hotel for our Annual Gala Banquet Awards Dinner and Membership Meeting.

Saturday, October 8, will find many of us at the Devon Kennel Club show, and of course the weekend will culminate with our National Specialty on Sunday, October 9, held with the Montgomery County Kennel Club (MCKC) Show!

Making specialty show day even more special, this year the STCA will begin offering a new Best of Opposite Sex Challenge Trophy. This Challenge Trophy in memory of Carol Simonds, and all the Rosettes will feature a special logo. Additionally, the MCKC will again offer Best of Breed Bred-By-Exhibitor and Group Competitions. For the STCA, this competition will, for just the second time, feature the gorgeous silver plated punch bowl challenge trophy, won originally for a Best in Show win by Walter Goodman with his exquisite CH Jacinthe de Riclaine, and now offered by the club in memory of Walter and his mother Adele Goodman. It will be another Skye weekend to remember and is not to be missed!
