Cornbelt Kennel Club, Bloomington, Illinois

Our shows have closed, with great entry numbers! Thanks to all of you joining us for the Cluster Shows!







Please note that the Best Practices Guidelines (pages 3 and 4 in the Premium List) will still be in effect. The waiver on page 5, will need to be signed and presented at the check-in gate for admission to the grounds. Please print your own copy and bring it signed in order to speed up the check-in process. Allow extra time to get through the check-in process, and be ready to get to the ring with your dog. (with your mask and wristband required for entrance to the building)

The Micro-chip clinic will be held on Saturday with no pre-registration – appointments on first come/first serve basis. Fee is $30. The OFA Eye Clinic will be on Sunday with pre-registration encouraged. Fee is $40 for pre-registered dogs, $45 for walk-ins (if space is available.) Be sure to bring dog’s AKC number to complete the forms for OFA.

All participants enter through the main gate off Rt 9 (W. Market St.). You will turn in your waiver form and receive a wrist band, parking pass for reserved parking areas and the FastCAT trial area, Guidelines and map.

Please wear your wristband at all times on the grounds to indicate you have checked in and provided the required signed waiver form. Exhibitors coming for FastCAT trials only, must also check-in and receive a wristband.

Everyone (including minors) must have a waiver form in order to receive a wristband. Your wristband will be your access to the show buildings…

No wristband – no mask = no admittance to the show buildings. Don’t forget – and arrive at the building to show your dog(s) and not be able to get into the building.

There will be no public “poop scoops” available. Everyone will be responsible for cleaning up after their dog(s) - in the public ex pens and all over the grounds. Please come prepared to be self-sufficient. Bring sanitizer, personal use masks, clean-up supplies….. and shade for yourself and your dogs.

No grooming is permitted in the show buildings. However, if you have multiple dogs, you may bring crate(s) into the building 15 min prior to your judging time. All crates must be removed immediately following the conclusion of your breed’s judging.

Because there is no grooming inside the show buildings, we have added reserved parking for cars, vans, box trucks, etc in addition to our usual RV parking. See the map and the reservation form in the premium list. Some of those spaces are filling up so get your reservations sent so you can be parked where you want to be.

We will have limited vendors this year due to COVID restrictions. MidWest Pet Supplies and Mink Shears and Sharpening will be there. Plan to patronize these businesses – located in the back of the West Expo building. Social distancing will apply to this area.

Alexanders will be our usual food vendor. He will be located in Building A – his usual location. Plan to enjoy breakfast and lunch on site – and don’t forget his great ice cream!

Get your entries made, parking reservations sent (and hotel reservations made) – and join us over Memorial weekend!
