Montgomery County Specialty Weekend
The annual Montgomery County Kennel Club (MCKC) dog show is certainly a special event in the mind of many Scottie fanciers. Sanctioned by the AKC as an All-Terrier (versus an All-Breed) Show, this event is attended by people from all over the United States as well as many countries around the world.
The STCA sponsors a series of events over the entire Montgomery County weekend that help make this an awesome weekend. The Montgomery weekend is the first weekend in October and is held in the greater Phillidelphia area. The official STCA Information Packet published each summer provides information on area hotels, maps to the various show sites and the latest schedule of events.
National Rotating Specialties
In approximately 1990, the STCA Board of Directors organized the Regional Scottish Terrier Clubs into four regional groups. The objective was to provide a mechanism for sharing the privilege of hosting a national specialty among all of the affiliated clubs. Since 1991, the annual National Rotating Specialty has been rotated among these four regional groups, with each club in the region having an equal opportunity to host the specialty.
The current list of regional groups and the STCs in each group is shown below.
