To Breed Clubs & Commitees,

The SKV, the Swedish Vallhund Club of Sweden, would like to invite you, and/or inividual members, to the formal World Congress to be held from 2nd June to 4th June 2011.

At the moment the agenda and programme is just beginning to take shape.  However, the proposed plans for certain events such as a two speciality shows is already agreed.  On Thursday, 2nd June, which is a bank holiday in Sweden,  we will start off with an official show. Then in the late afternoon/early evening of the same day, we will start the actual congress. This congress will continue all day Friday with a full programme.  On the Friday evening there will be a dinner with a match show (unofficial)
On Saturday there will be a second show

The SKV would like Clubs to let us know who is coming in an offical capacity, what, if any, subjects they themselves want to talk about or if they would prefer the Swedish speakers to do this.  We are planning to invite speakers in professional capacity to talk on topics such as:- Eyes, Hips, Breeding, Breed standard and the Vallhund breed around the world etc.

Nearer the time, of course, several other subjects will be added to the agenda.  Details regarding price, bookings of accomodations etc etc will be sent to you if there is an interest from your club and members.  Please let us know in good time by answering to me , Anita Whitmarsh  We are very much looking forward to your attendance and the congress in general
