SAIMAA EASTER DOG SHOW 2020
Cancellation of dog show in Imatra 2020
The Show Committee for Saimaa Easter Dog Show 2020 has considered different options for the two all-breed dog shows, intended to be held in Imatra on 11th and 12th of April, 2020. Due to the current situation with the COVID-19 corona virus, we have no other option but to cancel these shows.
We considered the option of postponing the shows to be held at another time. However, we were unable to make this happen in a way that would have seemed reasonable. Therefore, we have come to a decision to cancel both shows this year. The shows of 2020 would have been the last Easter indoor shows in Imatra, but consequently, it turns out that the last show was in fact the one in 2019. Next year, we will return to our roots in Lappeenranta and have our dog show at the Lappeenranta racetrack in June.
We are currently looking into the expenses which have already incurred and negotiate about the realization of these. As soon as we are familiar with where we stand financially, we are going to partially refund the entry fee to all exhibitors who had entered their dogs to our shows. We will contact each of our exhibitors by email as regards the refund of entry fees, but for now, we kindly ask for your patience with the inquiries. It will take us some time to finish our investigations.
We warmly welcome you all to our new show in Lappeenranta in the summer of 2021!
