‘In 2018, Midland Counties reach their 50th Anniversary. We are planning a number of celebrations. However, especially for exhibitors we wanted to let you know that following our recent Committee Meeting:
Entry Fee for CC breeds remains at £22.00 per dog – no increase for 8 years now
Entry fee for Non CC, AVNSC and Not For Competition is reduced by £2.00 to £10.00 per dog
No Car Parking Charges
No admission charges
Veteran Classes in every breed/AVNSC and Best Veteran in Breed rosettes
£20.00 prize money for every Best Puppy in Breed’
With Crufts fast approaching thoughts turn to planning the day. Looks like a very early start for many. The Papillon ring is 29 in Hall 5 with an early start time of 8.30.
