The 2022 Specialty will still be held, as planned, in Indiana and the York, PA Specialty originally scheduled for 2021 will move to 2023.

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.

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!!!

About the Flat-Coated Retriever

A determined hunting dog with a small head and mouth can retrieve a large bird, but will not be able to hold it as gently and securely and retrieve repetitively with as much stamina and longevity as the dog with the long head, long muzzle and large, strong jaws.
