FCRS Championship Show 2020

The Judges & Show Sub Committee of the Flatcoated Retriever Society have accepted that it is extremely unlikely that large gatherings will be permissible by August 2020 - We have therefore made the decision not to go ahead with the Flatcoated Retriever Society Championship show planned for 16th August 2020.

We are currently exploring options around the KC initiative to run the postponed 2020 Ch Show in conjunction with and alongside a General Championship Show in 2021.

We will update you as soon as we have any news.

Keep well and safe everyone.

Flatcoated Retriever Society: Breed Open Show


Based on the developing Coronavirus Outbreak and recent communications from the Kennel Club strongly recommending the cancellation of events for a three month period. The Flatcoated Retriever Society has regretfully taken the decision to cancel the 2020 Breed Open Show in June.

We feel that it is a priority to take all measures possible to help slowdown the spread of this virus. 

Our next Breed Open Show will be on 12th June 2021 at the KC Building Stoneleigh.

The 44th Breed Championship Show is re-scheduled for Sunday 16th August 2020 – we hope that the Corona Virus situation will have settled down and the show will go ahead.

Royal Canin Vouchers

If you won vouchers at any of our shows last year and still have to redeem them, please read the letter below from Royal Canin.

Dear Secretary

We at Royal Canin are reaching out to you as we sponsored your show in the last twelve months.

With the ongoing Covid-19 crisis we are trying to help your winners redeem their prizes. Normally this would be done on our stand at the championship shows. As most shows are now cancelled until the end of October, we have altered the system to allow winners to claim their prizes via our Area Business managers.

To this end, we would be grateful if you could share the wording below on your club’s social media page or through your club website to try and make sure everyone who has a prize has a good chance of redeeming it in a timely fashion.

“Don't forget that you can still redeem your gift certificates won at shows sponsored by Royal Canin by contacting their Area Business Manager. To find out who the Business Manager is for your area, click here: https://bit.ly/3b6yjOr

We hope this goes some way to showing our support of shows and events and look forward to supporting you in the future.

In the meantime please stay safe.

Vacancy: Honorary Show Secretary 2020

I have made the extremely hard decision not  to stand for re-election as Hon. Show Secretary at the 2020 AGM.

I have absolutely loved the past 15 years. I have really enjoyed working with the ‘Judge’s & Show Sub Committee’ members, running the shows and educational events – it has been such a rewarding role – seeing all the exhibits (and exhibitors of course) at the shows and supporting up and coming judges on their career. However, I think it is time for me to step down and make room for someone new (maybe younger) with fresh and exciting ideas.

This will also give me more time to dedicate to my role as Breed Education Co-ordinator (BEC). I am passionate about the education of Judges and the mentoring scheme.  I will enjoy the challenge of working alongside the 4 UK based clubs in supporting judges through the transition process to a fully operational JCF and beyond.

If you are interested in becoming Hon. Show Secretary please contact me for an informal chat and more information about the role.
