National Specialty Rescheduled For April 2021 in Wichita Falls, Texas
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.
Refunds will be issued for 2020 Hospitality, Grooming and RV Reservations, as well as entries.

2021 National Specialty Canceled
It is with a very heavy heart that the Specialty Show Chairs and the FCRSA Board have made the decision to cancel our April 2021 Flat-Coated Retriever National Specialty for the health of all our judges, exhibitors and facility workers. It was not an easy decision to make but given the state of our nation’s health and the long battle back with the vaccine, it was the only decision that could be made.
We will all look forward to having a great big Specialty in Indiana in 2022!!!
As a reminder of what was not meant to be, and to help with future specialty fundraising, we will be offering a limited edition commemorative tee and sweatshirt with the new masked logo in full color. Look for details at the beginning of the new year.
For those that still have 2020 merchandise orders for pick up, Eric Christensen will send PayPal invoices to you in a few days for shipping costs and Cathy Doster will ship them to you directly once payment is received. Her shop will be closed until Jan. 4th. If you choose to not pay the shipping, your order will be available for pickup in Indiana in 2022. We’re sure you want you stuff sooner though. Please note that all merchandise orders were manufactured when the order was placed and cannot be cancelled.
We thank those people who generously supported the FCRSA with reserved grooming spaces, trophy donations and catalog ads. We hope you will feel inclined to carry over those donations as we move toward Indiana 2022. Look for an online catalog and 2020, 2021 Hall of Fame presentations to be put on our website to honor those recipients.
