Welcome to the 2017 Briard Club of America National Specialty Website
We take great pleasure in welcoming you to the 2017 BCA National Specialty, hosted by the North Central Briarders Club with a lot of help from our friends. This is the 89th year anniversary of the Specialty, and we are proud bring this National and Regional Specialty to you. We do hope you will plan to join us in St. Charles, Illinois.
The Specialty will open with a supported entry at the German Shepherd Dog Club All Breed Agility Trial (in New Berlin, WI). The Specialty’s main events will be at Pheasant Run Resort and Expo Center in St. Charles, Illinois and Agility at the Farm in Campton Hills, IL just 5 miles from the resort. In addition to our established canine events, we will offer a temperament test and lure coursing ability testing.
Our social activities include a Welcome Ice Cream Social, an NCB Welcome Banquet, and an open cocktail hour preceding the Awards announcements and quilt drawing.
The St. Charles area offers nearby malls and outlet centers, a lovely historic district on the river, fine dining and attractions including Aquascape Water & Garden Showcase, Lamplight Equestrian Center hosting Dressage shows, Ball Horticultural Gardens, and downtown Chicago lies just 45 miles to the East.
Please make your plans, confirm your reservations and pick up your Briards and gear for Rolling on the River.
