Thank you to everyone who entered I have really enjoyed seeing all of your wonderful Corgis, and what an amazing showing we have had from both breeds. Congratulations to all of our winners and place-getters.

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.

The May / June Chatter included details of the upcoming Annual General Meeting on Saturday, 18th July, 2020. It was the intention of the Committee to hold the AGM in person. With the recent changes in social isolating requirements in Victoria this is no longer possible.
As an alternative we will be holding this AGM in a “virtual” environment as allowed by our rules of incorporation (rule 35 – Use of technology). While it is unfortunate that this is occurring at short notice and this is the first time that this has happened I’m sure that you will agree that these are unusual times!
The Welsh Corgi Club of Victoria will still hold the meeting on Saturday 18th July, at 11am by Zoom (https://zoom.us/). To obtain access details of the meeting please contact Mike Cronin – (03 9700 2323). Zoom is an online video conferencing facility with apps available for Android and Apple devices as well as for Windows.
