4 - The Westminster Kennel Club
             ALTERNATIVE BENCHING FORMAT
                       FOR 2012
Due to the remodeling of Madison Square Garden, Westminster
again institutes an Alternative Benching Format for its 2012 event.
Decisions have been made with the safety and well-being of the
dogs, exhibitors and spectators foremost in mind. All exhibitors
will be assigned to a specific area that will be reserved for dogs
and grooming. All Toys and Terriers benching, grooming and breed
judging will be in the Theater at Madison Square Garden, as will
the Junior Showmanship Preliminaries. There will also be Multi-
Breed space available for those persons meeting the requirements
to be in that space (see pages 16, 19-20, 25-26). A layout will be
included with the judging program.
Just as this will be a change for our exhibitors, it will also be a radical
change for our spectators. All dogs MUST be in crates and must be
able to be viewed by the public. A bench card displaying the dog's
bench/armband number will be supplied by the Superintendent
and MUST be attached to the dog's crate. The reverse of the bench
card must include the exhibitor's name and contact information
for the duration of the show.
Grooming will take place at the dog's crate. There will be a
limited number of power drop cords available in each section.
Please observe Madison Square Garden's requirement that only
one plug at a time be used in each drop cord. Failure to adhere
to this requirement can cause an interruption in the electricity
and there is no guarantee as to when it would again be available.
Dogs are required to be in their areas until the published release
time except for exercising or judging.
To afford the best utilization in the remaining balance of our space
in the benching/grooming area, all regular vendors will once again
be relocated to the third floor.
Due to space limitations we are asking the cooperation of our
exhibitors as we all adjust to the new conditions at Madison Square
Garden. We request that you bring only those items necessary for
the grooming, exhibition, and crating comfort of your dogs. Crates/
tack must be stacked whenever possible. Fire regulations will not
permit chairs or other impediments in any aisleway. Saving space(s)
is not permitted. Personnel will be available to assist those needing
help getting their crates/equipment to the appropriate area and in
stacking crates/equipment.
                                                        February 13 & 14, 2012 - 5
