We are looking forward to welcoming everyone to beautiful Vancouver Island this July and share some of our west coast beauty. In keeping with this, we will be setting up a hospitality tent close to the Specialty ring and banquet facility to serve as your one-stop information central.

The hospitality tent will be open at 8:00 am on both Thursday, July 13 and Friday, July 14 and is where you will find morning coffee, be able to pick up your merchandise, buy your raffle tickets and (hopefully) have your questions answered.

Also join us for the AGM in the Oak Room following the obedience trial on Thursday.  It’s your chance to learn what your Board of Directors have been up to for the last year and what we have planned for the next.  It’s also an important opportunity to provide member input.  After all – this is your club.  Worried that it’s going to run into lunch hour?  No need to worry….we plan to keep it short and provide food to satisfy those hunger pangs.  But let us know you are coming by emailing specialty.2023@gmail.com so we can make sure there’s enough for everyone.


Following BOB judging on Friday, we hope everyone will join us for the banquet which will be held in the Dogwood Room at the show grounds.   It’s planned as a west coast BBQ buffet.   There will be a choice between salmon, pork ribs, or stuffed Portobello mushrooms as a main and a variety of salads and side dishes to tempt every palate.

Come check out the auction tables of amazing items donated, listen to the judges speak about their day judging. Come and catch up with old friends and meet new ones.  The Dogwood Room has a lovely out door sitting area, there will be a cash bar opening after BOB judging with the banquet starting at 6:30 pm.
The deadline for ordering a banquet dinner is June 21st.  If you haven’t ordered a banquet ticket ahead of time but would like to attend, talk to Trudy Langthorne, Wendy Tisdall or Sophia Fanous at the show.  There will be a limited number of dinners still available.
