VALLEY FORGE 1973

FIRST SPECIALTY SHOW 1952
. This is a newspaper clipping about the Keystone Collie Club holding it's first Specialty show. After some research and a little math we've come to the conclusion that this would have been in 1952. We reasoned that since the club was started around 1944. After allowing for a year or two of the club finding it's "direction" six years later would give us 1952. To help support that theory, in May of 2008 we will be holding our 56th Specialty Point Show. So doing a little math, 2008 - 56 = 1952, and we have a conclusion we can feel safe in saying is correct.
