IMPORTANT NOTICE - NEW DATES FOR KUSA CLASSIC 2021

As also contemplated for the cancelled event in 2020, the KUSA Classic 2021 Organising Committee (KCOC) remains committed to organising a spectacular event in 2021. Prestige has always been the epitome of KUSA’s flagship event, which also accords with the requirements of our sponsor, Royal Canin.

Unfortunately, the above would not be achievable without a comprehensive panel of International Judges. In order to meet the expectations of our members, exhibitors and sponsor to deliver a prestigious event, adjudicated by a panel of distinguished International Judges, the KCOC had no choice but to postpone the KUSA Classic 2021 till later in the year when international travel restrictions would hopefully have been relaxed.

With the approval of the Executive Committee, the KUSA Classic 2021 has been moved from Week 22 (27- 30 May) to Week 38 (18-19 September) for Working Disciplines and Week 39 (23-26 September) for Breed and Handling in the hope that by then the rollout of South Africa’s COVID-19 vaccination programme would be firmly on track and infection rates would have reduced sufficiently to not only permit safe travel between South Africa and most countries, but also a relaxation of foreign countries’ quarantine regulations on residents returning from South Africa.
