Summer Champs: The National Summer Championships are now only 2 weeks away – to be held at Arena UK on the 7th and 8th August 2010. We’re still taking entries for all classes – see entry form for closing dates. For those who haven’t yet qualified we have open classes on the Saturday morning where 1st – 6th will qualify for the rest of the show. Open classes are open to members and non-members. Special Offer on Entry Fees: If you are a member prior to 5th August and you qualify on the 7th August during the open classes, then on the day entry fees will be held at the reduced rate of £10 per class. If membership is obtained on the day then this discount will not apply. ALL entries on the day must be paid by cash only – no cheques will be accepted due to the number of bounced cheques.
Hoodies: Class Act will again for 2010 be offering a discounted price for Amateur Showing Society hoodies embroided with your names – see the Amateur Showing Society Facebook page for more details.
Return of numbers for Summer Champs: Competitor numbers will only be returned if a SAE was enclosed with entries, and if correct entry fee and first aid payment was received. Any numbers which have not been returned to competitors can be collected from the secretary on arrival at the show. If you are concerned that your numbers have not been returned to you, or you require your number before the show, then please send us an email with your query.
Catalogues: Catalogues of entries will be available from the show secretary.
