As a result of consultation with Purina Farms the Challenge of Champions will be held in the Founders Room on Friday evening.
We are still working through the Covid protocols with Purina Farms. Once we know more we will publish a Good to Know list to help you plan your visit. One thing we do know....bring a popup tent if you have one.
Purina Farms has implemented several Covid-19 protocols. One is that to enter the grounds you must be on a list. If you have entered the Futurity/Maturity, the Challenge of Champions, or any of the point shows your name will be furnished to Purina Farms and NO ACTION IS REQUIRED!
If you plan to "volunteer" you must contact Gigi Reiling to be added to the list we furnish Purina. Send your name to her via of email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or if you have any questions regarding this.

Purina Farms/All Breed Show Update
The brochure for KerryFest will be available for download later this week. Since the last update we have made the decision to hold all KerryFest events except the Challenge of Champions in Show Tent 1. In the case of rain the ring will be under the tent. The all breed shows on Saturday and Sunday except for Kerry Blues will be judged indoors. Holding our shows on the Purina Show Field will allow for better grooming and movement. We continue to fall under the 1400 dog on Saturday and Sunday so be sure and get you entries in once entries open.
We continue to plan the weekend and hope to announce all the plans within the next week. We will have enhanced hospitality this year. Our goal is to have the complete plans for KerryFest available within the next week.
Onofrio will be the superintendent. Susan Gordon with be the Secretary of the Friday St. Louis Specialty.
