Calendar

 

The Greater Shelby Kennel Club and Tupelo Kennel Club will host the 2018 “Dog Days of Summer” all-breed conformation and obedience shows at the Tunica Horse Arena. This four-day cluster of shows is about 45 minutes to an hour from downtown Memphis, TN. The Tunica Horse Arena is convenience to Interstate 269, Interstate 55 and Interstate 40 and has a variety of hotels, restaurants, shopping and has an RV Park on the grounds of the show site. The dates are October 4-7, 2018.

The show site itself is a large, well air-conditioned facility with new lighting, large rings, and on-site RV parking and we’ve added an additional power supply for exhibitors. There will be designated grooming areas (we expect a large entry), several dog-wash points and ex-pens. The floor of the arena is packed dirt.

Services will include more than a dozen quality-merchandise and food vendors, a silent auction,  and on-site security. In addition, the joint show committee (identifiable by blue club shirts) will be on site from set-up to finish and available to help exhibitors as needed.

Please see the notice below that is being published in the Judging Program.

Attention Exhibitors

 

1.   Exhibitors with box trucks or other large vehicles should park their vehicles so that only one regular parking space is occupied or request parking in the designated and convenient RV-parking area. Please make a late reservation; late fees will be waived.

2.   All exhibitors with RVs should park in the convenient designated area behind the arena.

3.   Designated areas directly in front of or to the rear of the building are reserved for unloading or loading. Vehicles should be moved as soon as possible for the convenience of others.

4.   We have hired staff to assist exhibitors in loading their vehicles on July 12.

6.   We will have a parking attendant on-duty to assist exhibitors in locating parking places throughout the Cluster. Please follow his or her directions.

7.   We wish to reassure our exhibitors that there is adequate, convenient, and safe parking available at the Tunica Horse Arena for all of our exhibitors.
