To all our Irish Setter family,
THE ISCCC board has unfortunately had to cancel our specialty shows for May 10 due to the COVID 19 situation. We have an elderly population in our club and our event would draw close to 60 people. Some of our judges are over 60 years old and one would be flying into the Hartford airport. Many of our exhibitors live in other states. It would be impossible for everyone to maintain a social distance at our event, especially during the judging process.
Due to all these variables and still many unknowns of future quarantines, possible state border shut downs, how quickly this virus is spreading, we feel that we need to be realistic about the effect this is having on all of us and therefore need to be proactive to ensure the safety of EVERYONE in our Irish Setter community.
We are looking into other available dates (which will most likely be later than sooner) that the American Kennel Club would allow us to have that would not conflict with other shows in the area, availability of judges and availability of venues. Unfortunately, we can not make any decisions until we know when this situation will become safe to do so.
We will be contacting those who have sent in their entries and ads that the show is canceled and we will NOT be keeping the entry/ad money.
Hoping that you and your family are well during this trying time for all of us,
Sue Johnson, Show Secretary and the ISCCC Officers and Board
