been re-scheduled. More information below.
PORTUGUESE PODENGO BREED APPRECIATION DAY POSTPONED AGAIN!!!!
HAS NOW BEEN RE-RE-SCHEDULED.
FOR MORE DETAILS SEE
It is with regret and
disappointment that due to the ongoing situation with the COVID-19 virus plus travel restrictions faced by the Speaker, both
committees of the NPPA and the PPCGB have come to a decision to postpone the planned Breed Appreciation Day until NEXT YEAR. See below
This decision was not taken lightly,
but it was agreed that in order to maintain the same Speaker from Portugal and with the enforced cancellation of events it
was best to postpone.
All candidates who have already booked have been advised of the revised date and will of course have
their place guaranteed on the revised date, unless they request a refund.
The Officers and committees of the NPPA and the PPCGB wish
to extend their sincerest apologies and hope you can understand and accept the difficult situation.
