The FCRSA Board and 2020 Show Chairs have officially postponed the August 2020 Texas Specialty and approved rescheduling it to April, 2021 in Wichita Falls, Texas. The 2022 Specialty will still be held, as planned, in Indiana and the York, PA Specialty originally scheduled for 2021 will move to 2023.
One good thing to come from this is that Field events will be back in 2021! Wichita Falls dates will begin with Field on Friday and Saturday, April 9-10, 2021, then Conformation, Obedience and Rally and end with Agility on Thursday, April 15, 2021 with a 3 day All Breed Agility Trial to follow. A schedule with be posted on the Website and FaceBook pages soon. Host Hotel information, rates and links to make reservations will be posted when available.
All Hospitality and meals, Grooming Spaces and RV Reservations for 2020 will be automatically refunded to your original payment method if ordered online and paid via PayPal.
If you paid for anything via check and are due a refund, please contact the appropriate Chair to make arrangements. Checks will be sent out once confirmed by the chairs. You may also contact Specialty Treasurer Kathy Price-Pool directly with questions.
Hospitality: Jessica Montgomery
Reserved Grooming: Dawn Buttion
RV Reservations: John Price
Any Merchandise ordered via the web store has already been produced and paid for and is available to ship now. If you would like your order shipped to you, please contact Eric Christensen with your shipping address and he will update your order and send you a shipping invoice via PayPal. Otherwise orders will be available for pick-up at the Specialty in April. We will continue to accept merchandise orders with the 2020 “Collector Edition Logo” until July 1st. Merchandise with a slightly updated logo will be available after that. This is your chance to get some cool swag and help the club with some needed extra funds right now.
Standard merchandise shipping and handling charges are based on total price of the order:
< $50 $13
Catalog Ads may be updated next year at no charge. We will be posting the Current Catalog Ads and Dedication on the Website. Unfortunately, we will not be able to list the participants, but our FB page has a Virtual Show of some people attending. Additional Catalog Ads may be submitted next year. More information will be forthcoming.
Trophies have already been purchased and will be used next April. Any Trophy Donations will be carried forward to next year and additional trophies may still be sponsored. Field trophy donations will be back up in the FCRSA web store shortly. Please contact Christine Tenerelli with any questions.
As for Onofrio, we continue the process of working with them to refund entries minus expenses already incurred and hope to have this finalized soon. They are basically closed with a skeleton crew responding to many clubs and we are ever hopeful that this will be resolved soon.
The 2020 Specialty Committee would like to acknowledge and thank the 2021 (now 2023) Specialty Committee for volunteering to move their specialty back to 2023 so the 2020 specialty could be rescheduled. Their generous offer has made it possible to move forward with the event and minimize what would have been a substantial financial loss for the FCRSA.
We would also like to thank all of you for your patience as we struggle to work though these challenging times.
Stay safe, stay healthy, and we look forward to seeing everybody in Wichita Falls, Texas in April 2021!!!
