The 2021 National Specialty chairmen, the Judge Selection Committee, and the Specialty Oversight Committee announce a change to the 2021 National Specialty show judging assignment.
Knut Olav Wille was selected to be our conformation classes judge in 2021, but to everyone’s frustration, his travel options are mostly unknown at this point.
Dr. Lynn Simon was chosen by the membership to judge at the 2023 IWCA National Specialty. A few weeks ago, we contacted Dr. Simon and Mr. Wille and asked if they would consider swapping their specialty assignments. Both were willing to do that. Pending AKC approval, the specialty judges are:
2021 IWCA National Specialty conformation judge: Dr. Lynn Simon
2022 IWCA National Specialty conformation judge: Pauric Hand
2023 IWCA National Specialty conformation judge: Knut Olav Wille
The committee members below wish to thank both Lynn and Knut Olav for their understanding, patience, and cooperation in our challenging times.
