CBRC Championship and Open Shows 2020

Championship Show – Judge: Mr Jeff Horswell
Open Show – Judge: Mr David Bell

12 July 2020 – POSTPONED
Bretford Village Hall, Bretford, Warks

The Chesapeake Bay Retriever Club has taken the difficult decision to postpone the Championship and Open shows to be held on 12 July 2020 at Bretford. It was felt that given the ongoing Covid-19 situation, it was in the best interests of all those involved. The Club is working on possible plans to hold the 2020 show in 2021.
