The Scottish Border Terrier Club Open Show , due to be held on Sunday 6th June 2021 has regrettably been cancelled. At a virtual
committee meeting it was felt that it is not possible to run a show under the present circumstances.
BORDER TERRIERS 2020 – FURTHER POSTPONEMENT
New dates – April 29 to May 2, 2022
The Committee of Border Terriers 2020 regrets to have to announce the postponement of its event by a further year until May 2022. This decision has been unanimously arrived at because of the current uncertainties posed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The new date will be April 29 to May 2, 2022. It has already been established that the venue at the Border Union Showground at Kelso is available and that the scheduled championship show judge Elspeth Jackson has agreed to officiate on the revised date. The date currently appears to be free of other conflicting activities, but final ratification of the changed date will still have to be obtained from the Kennel Club.
The Committee recognises that delaying what were originally meant to be Centenary celebrations by yet another year, does seem odd but the reasons for coming to that conclusion are as follows:
For all of those reasons the Committee has agreed to abandon the idea of holding what might well end up as a sub-optimal event in May 2021, in favour of delaying the whole event by a further year to 2022 and making it the very special occasion that has been planned right from the start. The event is meant, after all, to be a celebration of the breed, so it does not really matter that it is delayed further from 2021 to 2022.
Euan Castel Secretary of the event said: “It is recognised that lots of people do want to get going again with shows, and of course that made going ahead in 2021 quite tempting for us. However, the Committee doesn’t think that doing so would be sensible for our particular event. It was always meant to be a very special occasion.
“Please take a note of the new dates - 29th April to 2nd May 2022 - when hopefully we will all be able to meet socially in a normal and enjoyable way in what we all hope will be a unique festival celebrating the Border Terrier in all of its various aspects.”
Further details will be updated in due course.

After carefull consideration the committee have regretfully decided that the Scottish Border Terrier Club Championship Show due to be held in Selkirk on 14th November is cancelled.
Taking account of the present and expected COVID restrictions it would not be possible to run the show in a way that would ensure the safety of everyone, social distancing etc. would not be possible.
Please stay safe and we hope to be able to meet again soon.
