Our trophies will be handcrafted pottery from the Eldreth Pottery Company, American made pottery inspired by Pennsylvania German styles and methodology. These pieces will feature the show logo.

A friend of CCA has donated a handmade quilt for us to use as a gift to one lucky person who donates towards the trophies. All donors will receive chances towards a drawing for this quilt. Those donating $20 to $75 will receive one chance. $100 to $175 will receive five chances and $175 to $300 will receive ten chances.

Video

Live Streaming Video
http://www.showdogvideopros.com/CollieLiveStream.html

At this site folks may purchase either a day-by-day LIVE video pass, or a week pass (for a 20% discount).  Also, the site features the important links to access the LIVE STREAMING VIDEO each day of the show. 
PLEASE NOTE:  The links are NOT ACTIVE right now.  Obviously there is no show going on right now!  We will activate the links and code the live video pages close to the time of the show.  Also, note that we will add info on the day by day events, once you have the final schedule made out.

On-demand and Recorded Streaming Video
http://www.showdogvideopros.com/CollieStream.html

From this page folks may access two kinds of video.  First, we will be recording the RAW video for the 2012 show and uploading that to the streaming server at night.  SO, folks in different time zones, or across the International date line, or whatever, can access the same video that we streamed live.  It is like a video recorder for your TV.  Record the program during the day, and watch it at night.

Video on DVDs
http://www.showdogvideopros.com/Collie.html

Just like last year, after the show we will prepare all of the recorded video onto DVDs.  We will label every dog with name, sire and dam.  And, we will add great music soundtracks.
