At the 2021 Annual Meeting of CGS members asked that the Board consider adjusting the deadline for National Show bids to host to an earlier date.
The deadline had been September 30th of the year previous with a decision soon thereafter.
The Board considered this request and moved the deadline to June 30th of the year previous effective with 2022 National Shows.
With regard to 2020 bids from the Vancouver Island Goat Association (Western) and the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair (RAWF) ( Eastern) had been approved. Covid-19 restrictions caused the cancelation of both these events in 2020.
For 2021 the Board had once again approved the bid from the VIGA for the Western National and in Eastern Canada Brooklin Spring Fair had been approved as host.
Both these events have been cancelled.
An application from the RAWF had been received. This bid was approved when Brookline Spring Fair had to cancel their event. Time will tell if this event can be held.
The Board has already approved the RAWF as host of the 2022 East National in recognition of the 100th anniversary of the Royal that year.
CGS is now entertaining bids to host the 2022 West National Show with a deadline of June 30, 2021 for applications.
Applications should be forwarded to the CGS office.
