The upcoming April 2021 Championship Show will be held under COVID conditions. The Event Plan is attached, please make sure that you are familiar with this before the event. A QR registration code will be available on the day.
Dogs Victoria have just issued the following guidance for holding shows in the current environment. The upcoming April 2021 Championship Show will be held in accordance with this guidance.
Originally, we treated a ring table as an item of shared equipment that had to be sanitised each time it was passed to or handled by different people. It was difficult. However, if it is not touched or handled by people it is not shared equipment. Therefore, with appropriate rules, a ring table simply becomes something for the dogs to stand on. These are those rules
No person may touch a ring table including handler and judge
No brushes or equipment may be placed on the table
The table must be sanitised when moved by a steward, at the start of judging and following any accidental touching
Temporary shelters are umbrellas that are fixed to the ground and gazebos. To enable social distancing, we have in place rules for spacing and occupancy of temporary shelters. Fitting walls on a gazebo can change how many people it can hold.
Space all shelters at least 1.5m apart.
Follow advice of a Covid Marshal in setting up a shelter and check it is at least 1.5m from adjacent shelters. Marshals have a 1.5m measure stick for that purpose
Fitting 2 or more walls makes a shelter an indoor area and can only contain people from one household and no more than 1 person per 2m2unless they are wearing a mask
Fitting one wall or not fitting walls makes the shelter an outdoor area, so keep people 1.5m apart and mask are not required
Keep shelters back from the 2m space around each ring
When you enter a show or similar event through either Easy Dog or Show Manager you will record your name, vehicle registration number and the names of others traveling with you. If there is room after entries have been closed you may apply to the secretary to attend just to watch. Upon arrival all attendees must:
It is important to accurately record all attendees with your entries
Not bypass entry checkpoint
Queue up your car, to be checked in by volunteers
Follow their directions how to proceed to a parking area for your group
Only if there is room it may be possible to register for attendance on the day of the event
Handling in the ring includes short periods of close proximity between a judge and a handler, while the rest of the time people are well spaced for Covid safety. That means the mask is only required during close proximity and certainly not required while running a dog. Therefore:
Have your mask with you at all times
Come into the ring via the entry and leave via the exit
You do not need to wear your mask while:
in a line-up
running your dog
Wear a mask while:
in the assemble area if you are less than 1.5m from others
the Judge is going over your dog
when less than 1.5m from any other person
when judge is moving down the line less than 1.5m from handlers
A judge and handler should not touch each other nor may they shake hands
A judge must not mouth a dog. The handler must mouth their dog for the judge to see its bite
The Committee of the Welsh Corgi Club of Victoria Inc, regret to advise that we have cancelled our Specialty Show which was scheduled for October 2020. We are disappointed at having to make this announcement. We hope that you all understand that given the COVID-19 pandemic and the social restrictions in Victoria we have been left with no alternative.
We are hoping to be able to be able to make an announcement about a Specialty Show in the first half of 2021 once we have approval from Dogs Victoria.
