STCA Specialty Show

2017 STCA Specialty Show Information

Greetings, STCA Members and Friends!

We invite you all to join the Skye Terrier Club of America for our annual grand celebration of our beautiful Skye Terriers and Skye festivities during the STCA Montgomery County National Specialty weekend! The Show Committee has been busy making plans, and we look forward to having you join us this year as we present another Specialty weekend of shows and fun-filled events, capped off by our 106th National Specialty Show on Sunday, October 8, 2017. Now’s the time to mark your calendars and make your reservations!

The weekend will kick off on Thursday and Friday, October 5 and 6, with the STCA supported entry at Hatboro Dog Club Shows. As we have traditionally done, our Thursday evening event, held at our host hotel, will be a casual “Fun Night” Buffet Dinner with Skye items galore for sale, silent auction, and the always-popular live aucton, with a few very 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 STCA Annual Membership Meeting.

Saturday, October 7, 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 8, held with the Montgomery County Kennel Club (MCKC) Show!

Once again, the MCKC will offer Best of Breed Bred-By-Exhibitor and Group Competitions. For the STCA, this competition will 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, 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!

Below you will find links to information for making hotel reservations, an itinerary for the weekend, menus, and descriptions of all the weekend events. Also included are the forms you will need to submit Catalog Ads for the Specialty Show Catalog, and to sign up for all the Dinner Events. Please note the deadlines!) New this year are raffle tickets to win a silver Skye bracelet!
