Noticeboard

Notice to Members from the KCC Park Facilities Committeee

Thursday, 7 April 2022

Car or Trailer parking on the Turf at KCC Park is not permitted:
In recent days, the old dilapidated wooden sleepers around area one have been removed. In time, a new solid edging will replace the sleepers. There are sprinklers around the edges of area one and they are identified by small flags and a bollard. Please do not remove the flags or bollards from the asphalt. Caution is required when entering area one from your car.
 
PA Systems Controls:
The PA systems are set to be operated by
ONLY turning on the power switch and the microphone. Recently, the PA system controls in the indoor buildings were changed. There is now a locked cabinet accessible only by Dogs Victoria staff. Each system is pre tested for events. In the event of extensive use over a two day period, replacement batteries in the microphone will need to be changed. An instructional session for both systems will be held soon for regular show managers.
 
Dogs Victoria Emergency Contacts List:
Contact details of Dogs Victoria KCC Park Facilities members and Dogs Victoria staff who can assist with event enquiries, will be added to various locations around KCC Park.

Attention All Victorian Exhibitors - THANK YOU

Thursday, 13 January 2022

As chair of the conformation judges training committee and on behalf of the committee members, I would personally like to extend a sincere thanks to all who have contributed to the success of our training scheme here in Victoria through the difficult times of Covid.

I would like to acknowledge the wonderful exhibitors who are always willing to offer their time and assistance in so many different ways especially, supplying dogs for their practical exams and other learning opportunities. You are the reason that new judges keep coming through and you keep our sport alive. I must let you know that you are dearly appreciated from all of us here in the dog world.

An example of this was over the weekend of 27, 28 and 29 December 2021. With early starts, we ran a number of assessments with numerous candidates, some successful in gaining their respective licence. Again, a huge thank you for making this possible especially over the Christmas and new year period. 

At this time, the CJC is planning a ‘final plunge’ in an attempt to get through every other 2021 practical application. We are hoping to pull this together very soon.

In due course, all group leaders will be approaching you once again to make dogs available so we can assemble breed and mini group classes. We acknowledge the huge effort that this involves for everyone. If you are able to be involved or are interested in helping us, please contact myself at conformationjudgestraining@gmail.com. The conformation judges committee and trainees will be forever grateful.

Cathy Camac

Chair of the Conformation Judges Committee

Hot off the Press

Notice to Members – Wednesday 20 April 2022

Today the Victorian government advised of changes to pandemic orders effective from 11.59pm on Friday 22 April 2022 as per the following link: https://www.premier.vic.gov.au/high-vax-rate-means-most-restrictions-can-safely-ease

I am pleased to report that the last restrictions applicable to Dogs Victoria events and venues will cease to be required from 11.59pm on Friday 22 April 2022 as part of the Minister for Health’s changes to pandemic orders meaning;

  • you no longer have to check in to venues using the Service Victoria app or QR codes
  • you no longer have to show an approved vaccination status before entering any venue
  • Gate check in marshals are no longer required

 

Additionally, for your everyday living;

  • Masks will no longer be required in primary schools, early childhood, hospitality and retail settings, or at events of any size. Masks are strongly recommended when you can’t physically distance.
  • Close contacts
    • o no longer have to quarantine provided they wear a mask indoors and avoid sensitive
    • o will need to have at least five negative rapid tests over seven days since close contact occurred
  • People are exempt from testing or quarantining for 12 weeks if they’ve had Covid.
  • Individuals will still be required to notify their workplace contacts in addition to informing their social contacts. Workplaces won’t have to individually identify and notify each potentially exposed worker

 

The Victorian state government will retain a number of critical and common-sense settings including;

  • the essential requirement to isolate for seven days following a Covid diagnosis
  • Existing two dose and three dose vaccination mandates for workers
  • Visitor restrictions in care facilities to protect the vulnerable
  • Face coverings will still be required on public transport and at airports and in sensitive health, aged care and justice settings.
  • All workplaces will still require a COVIDSafe Plan.

 

As Covid has not gone away, please continue to do a self check before coming to Dogs Victoria events and venues. If you are experiencing covid like symptoms, please consider self testing or self isolating for the safety of our members and event or venue attendees.

 

I would like to thank all members and affiliates for helping Dogs Victoria maintain compliance to the state government pandemic mandates as this ensured our ability to return to and maintain doing the things we love to do with our dogs.

Jason Eggleton | Chief Executive
