DIARY DATES FOR 2021- PAPPY EVENTS

The Papillon Dog Club of South Australia Inc Championship Show

Saturday, 5th June 2021

to be held in conjunction with the Winter Festival
1.30 pm in the Hall at Dogs SA, Cromwell Road, Kilburn

Judge: Mrs Allison Rhodes, Victoria

For the members of our club, both here in South Australia and interstate, this is an 
important date, and again this year, we are inviting all club members to attend.

This is an entirely free event, indoors, so no need to be concerned about the weather.
Catering is available and there are lots of merchandise venues to visit.
Should you wish to see the breed exhibited in lovely show condition, have the chance to speak to breeders, help out with some small tasks, eg oversee the refreshments, especially for our guest judge etc. this would be hugely appreciated.

Many of the committee who often cover the small tasks necessary in running our social events will be complete-
ly involved with the showing of their papillons, and so of course, should you wish to help in any small way, this would be greatly appreciated.

ANIMAL PET EXPO

Saturday and Sunday, 16th & 17th October 2021 10-5 pm
The previously planned dates for May 2021 have now been re-scheduled, due to Covid concerns.

Once again the Club is participating in this event at the Wayville Showgrounds. Would
you like to participate I wonder? Either by attending or helping out on a roster for either
of the two days. Should you wish to be involved, please email the club. As yet I have
not participated in this event, but I have been told it is a lot of fun and all those attending
either by volunteering to help, or just visiting for the day, seem to enjoy the day. Last
year, this was one of the many functions cancelled due to Covid 19, so let us hope for
better luck this time. Please note that visitors cannot bring their dogs to this event.

BEACH WALK
SUNDAY, 1st AUGUST, 2021

Save the date for this very popular event!

At this stage, it is anticipated that this walk will follow previous formats, ie meet at Semaphore Beach for a walk, with a bbq meal to follow. Further details will be advised regarding this event closer to the time, but in the meantime, let us all hope for reasonable weather!

ROYAL ADELAIDE SHOW

PAPILLON DATE SATURDAY 11th SEPTEMBER
All club members are encouraged to join us at this show! And it’s on a Saturday, so what
a better way to spend the day and be the cheer squad for those exhibiting the breed.
Those who have joined us previously have all enjoyed a shared luncheon during the
lunch closure break. Again, this is an indoor event and an opportunity for some good
food, conversation, and possibly some education with helping members understand the
work and detail which occurs when exhibiting a beautiful papillon. We don’t have “rent a
crowd” but some cheers from you all would be appreciated! So, please, have a think
about this idea. We would love to see you there.

CHRISTMAS PARTY
SUNDAY, 21st NOVEMBER

Christmas already you ask? Knowing how busy everyone becomes at this time of the
year, the committee set the dates for this calendar year early, so everyone has a chance to save the dates! Further details will be advised when decided, obviously closer to November, but in the meantime, here is the opportunity to mark your diary dates so you don’t miss out on this event. Again, I can only say we have been fortunate to all enjoy a
lovely social outing, under the shade of the big trees, good food, games, raffle etc. We hope to see you all there.

DNA EAR PROJECT

Our member, Jane Evans, has a keen interest and is involved in a project researching whether a test can be developed to define the difference between the papillon and phalene ear set at an early age. Jane has the equipment and has offered to collect DNA samples at any of our upcoming events. These samples will be forwarded to Orivet for
analysis for this research - AT NO COST TO ANY OWNERS.
If you wish to contact Jane about this project please email her at

Linear Park Walk

11th April 2021

I invite you all to attend the well know Linear park walk where we have a lovely BBQ lunch in Athlestone and a walk in the Linear Park. Please contact the club if you wish to attend. This is a catered event and is hosted at a private residence. 

THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING OF THE PAPILLON CLUB OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA

WEDNESDAY, 10TH MARCH, 2021
AT THE MARSULA ROOM, DAVID ROCHE PARK

CROMWELL ROAD, KILBURN 7.30PM

I invite you all to attend this short AGM, followed by tea/coffee and light refreshments and a friendly chat. Your input into this AGM is greatly appreciated. A very short meeting will follow immediately after the AGM giving members an opportunity to discuss issues they might like to raise.
