Regional Specialty Show Guide

There is no limit to the number of regional specialties held each year. NCA will support one specialty per regional club per year providing publicity in NewfTide; postings and links on the NCA web site; and trophies for BOB and HIT/Highest Scoring Newfoundland in Regular Classes. When deciding on a date for a specialty check with the NCA Specialty Show Coordinator for any potential conflicts. 


POLICIES GOVERNING DATES 

  • No regional specialty may be held for 14 days before or 14 days after the National. 

  • If a regional specialty is within 200 miles of the National, it may not be held for four weeks before or four weeks after the National. 

  • No regional specialty may be held for 14 days before or 14 days after another regional specialty. * 

  • If a regional specialty is within 200 miles of another regional specialty it may not be held for four weeks before or four weeks after the already AKC approved regional specialty. * 

  • Multiple specialties (two or more back-to-back) may not take place 35 days prior to Best of Breed judging or 21 days after Best of Breed judging at the National. (4/22/03) 

*There is a provision in the policy to allow for exceptions when there is written agreement between clubs to differ from the policy. 


There are two types of regionals: one held with an all-breed show and one held independently. The regional specialty Chair must be a NCA member in good standing. For an independent regional the emergency response coordinator listed on the AKC Emergency and Disaster Plan must also be a NCA member. 


Applications with appropriate fees must be received by the NCA Specialty Show Coordinator seven months prior to the event closing date. Late applications may be rejected.
