Conformation Events

The National Floating Specialty will be held on Saturday, March 16, 2019.  The specialty will begin with Sweepstakes with classes for puppies (6-12 months), Juniors (12-18 months) and veterans.  Sweepstakes will be judged by longtime Airedale Breeder Owner Handler Ted Hollander.  Regular classes will be judged by Terrier expert, Peter Green and will offer standard awards and also Best Bred By Airedale.  The Best of Breed Airedale will have his or her name inscribed on the coveted Airedale Bowl.  

Additional conformation shows will be held on the three other days of the cluster and will likely have major entries each day.

In addition, there is a 4-6 month old puppy event; NOHS events all four days; Best Bred By in Cluster competition and a B Match during the cluster.  See premium list for details of these events. 

Performance Events

The Kentuckiana Cluster contains many performance events.  In past years these events have been held all four days of the cluster (March 14-17, 2019) and have been held in the Cluster Show building in various wings of the building.  The same set up is expected for 2019.  These events include obedience, rally, agility, barn hunt and dock diving.  ​​The ATCA will support the entry of Airedale Terriers in these events on Saturday, March 16 with special prizes and trophies.  Additional prizes and awards will be announced on this site in the near future.  Check frequently for more information.
