How To Sign Up To Be An Iron Welsh Participant

There are two parts to the sign up process:

  1. You must sign up each dog on the Iron Welsh Sign Up Form to show that you are competing in
    the Heartland Iron Welsh Challenge and in which events you will enter. Remember, you must enter
    at least three of the six events being held during the National specialty. Deadline is April 11, 2012. Please include a picture of each dog (digital can be emailed to the Andrea Pease foxriverspaniels@yahoo.com). There is no additional fee to enter your dog in the Iron Welsh as it is being supported by the Heartland Welsh Springer Spaniel Club. Mail (E-Mail is also acceptiable) the Iron Welsh Sigh Up Form and Photo to Andrea Pease, 3340 Solitude Road, De Pere, Wisconsin 54115.

  2. You must also enter the National Specialty Events using the proper AKC forms found in the premium lists and by paying the stated entry fee. Mail the AKC forms with the appropriate fees to the secretary shown for each event. Joan Kaml, at 4480 North 144th Street, Brookfield, Wisconsin 53005 is secretary for most events. Checks to her must be made out to HWSSC.
  • Please note that there will not be any on-line Internet entries for the National Specialty Events, so make sure to allow time for mailing.

  • One score per event - the highest score for each event will be tallied

  • Once you and your dog are signed up for at least three of the six events (hunting, tracking, agility, obedience, rally or conformation) you are then considered a Contender and earn an Iron Welsh Contender button.

  • A contender earning qualifying scores in at least two of the Iron Welsh events that they have entered is now a Qualifier toward the Iron Welsh and receives a Qualifier button and a rosette.

  • Third place is given to the Qualifier with the third highest number of Iron Welsh points as shown on the point schedule. A bronze rosette is given and an engraved medallion awarded.

  • Second place is given to the Qualifier with the second highest number of Iron Welsh points as shown on the point schedule. A silver rosette is given and an engraved medallion awarded.

  • First place and The Champion Iron Welsh is given to the Qualifier with the highest number of Iron Welsh points as shown on the point schedule. A gold rosette and medallion is given along with a commissioned art work awarded to commemorate this high achievement.

  • All awards will be presented at the National specialty banquet on Thursday, May 3, 2012

  • The Welsh Springer Spaniel Club's Iron Welsh Committee is responsible for calculating points and making the determination of the winners. Members of the committee will resolve any discrepancies, issues, substitutions, or ties, and their decision will be considered final.
