Come join the Fiesta!
April 9 – 15, 2021
The 2021 FCRSA National Specialty, rescheduled from 2020 due to Covid-19, will be in Wichita Falls, Texas, a growing and revitalizing community with an eclectic atmosphere of arts, industry, cattle, oil and home of Sheppard Airforce Base. Located about 2 hours northwest of Dallas-Ft. Worth and southwest of Oklahoma City, Wichita Falls boasts a large multi-purpose Event Center Complex that hosts rodeos, hockey, trade shows and their most famous event, the Hotter N Hell 100, a bicycle race held in August covering 100 miles in 100+ degree heat. Local pubs and breweries as well as a variety of restaurants are available for your enjoyment.
Society Field Events will be first and will be held at the Fitts Ranch about 20-25 minutes east so you do not have to change hotels.
Conformation, sweepstakes, and grooming will be held in the Ray Clymer Exhibit Halls A and B with air conditioning. Obedience and Rally will also be held indoors in a large, carpeted ballroom.
We will have to abide by any COVID restrictions in place at that time. Masks may be required at all events, according to AKC, State and Local Guidelines.
More info coming soon!!!
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.
