JOIN THE ROVING DOG SHOW COMMITTEE AND DO YOUR PART TO KEEP VICTORIA’S DOG SHOWS RUNNING

Thursday, 21 January 2021

Conducting “COVIDSafe” events for our members and canine community, has been Dogs Victoria’s major focus coming in to 2021. Our COVIDSafe Working Party have been working tirelessly with the Victorian Government and event organisers to ensure that our events comply to safety regulations due to COVID-19. The resources created by this committee are available on our website.

COVID-19 UPDATE HUB 

However, there is still much to be done and many clubs simply don’t have the resources to run their event complete with COVID Marshals, cleaners, etc., as required.  This is reflected in the number of clubs that have already applied to Management Committee to cancel their events. So, in order to get as many events as possible up and running, Management Committee has approved the creation of a temporary Roving Dog Show Committee.

So, where a club hasn’t the resources to run show, the Roving Dog Show Committee will step in and either, (1) run the entire show as a Dogs Victoria event, or (2) provide (at a per entry cost) those COVID-19 requirements the Club Committee can’t manage (such as the supply of trained Covid Marshals, entry gate officials, cleaning services and QR registration).  The preferred venue for these shows will be KCC Park as it is easier to fulfil COVID-19 regulations there. Dogs Victoria’s goal is to have at least one dog show event each weekend while the current COVID-19 restrictions apply.

To make this happen, we are calling for volunteers to join this new Roving Dog Show Committee. People with event and show organisation experience would be most welcome.

If you are interested in performing this vital service for Dogs Vic please send an email with your full name and contact details to the CovidSafe Working Party, (Simon Briggs at simonmbriggs@hotmail.com or Ron Murphy at ronofmelbourne@gmail.com).
