August 2019 Open Show


This year we are once again holding our Summer Open Show in parallel with the Northern Newfoundland Club Open Show at the Kennel Club Building. It is a perfect opportunity for exhibitors to enter two separate shows but on the same day and at the same venue!

Our show is being judged by a Breed Specialist, Mr. Jan Counotte from Belgium who is well known under his Cape Lewisporte affix. We also have three Special Award Classes being judged by Miss Amanda Foster.

At the end of both shows Mr. John Evans (Abbeydore), President of the Northern Newfoundland Club, will judge a GRAND BEST IN SHOW competition from the Best In Show in the main categories at each show.

Appeal for the return of missing Trophies

"Over the years The Newfoundland Club has had many lovely trophies that have been kindly donated to the club. Unfortunately with many changes to Trophy Stewards many of these over time have not been returned.

The committee would ask for everyone to share this with members current and old - we are doing a Trophy amnesty and asking for people to check their cupboards and shelves to see if they have any Trophies that might belong to the Club.

If any are found, please returned them to any committee member at any show or event, no questions will be asked.

It would be lovely if we could find all the missing and unaccounted for trophies."
