It is with great pleasure we announce Onofrio Dog Shows has completed processing exhibitor refunds for the canceled SSKC 2020 show.  If you paid by check, you will receive a refund check.  If you paid by credit card, you will receive a credit to that card.


We thank all of our exhibitors for their patience during this trying time and wish you all good health.  Please stay well and stay safe.


Be sure to mark your calendar to join us for our shows April 3 and 4, 2021. We look forward to seeing you there!

A special board meeting regarding exhibitor refunds was held April 27, 2020.  Options proposed by Onofrio were discussed.  It was determined that the option offering 100% exhibitor refunds for Saturday only, with no refunds for Sunday, was the in the best interest of the majority of exhibitors.  This increases the refund to the exhibitor of both days by approximately 2%.  We will request a list of Sunday only exhibitors from Onofrio and contact them with the option we can offer them. We will inform Onofrio of this decision and let you know an approximate timeline for refunds when determined. 


Thank you,

Ginger Austin

Due to a delay in obtaining information from Onofrio (the offices are closed), the board meeting is postponed. We are doing our best to minimize fees and costs so we can maximize exhibitor refunds. We want our exhibitors to receive the maximum refund possible, to do so, we have requested additional information regarding fees and costs from Onofrio.  Once the information is received, we will hold a board meeting and confirm the refund amount will be the maximum available for our exhibitors. Onofrio will then be contacted to process the refunds.  




Due to the 30 day "Stay Home for Nevada" directive given by Gov. Sisolek in his address to the State 3/17/2020 and

social distancing being extended until April 30 by President Trump, the general meeting is canceled.


We will keep you apprised of club business via email.


Thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time.

Please stay well and stay safe.
