Our Club History

Sadly, no trace remains of the first Collie Club of Australia, nor is there any information available as to why it was disbanded.

In 1943 The Collie Club of NSW was formed and after the inaugural meeting, the following members found themselves with the following positions having paid their ten shillings membership fee.

 

President                   Mr David Moore

Vice Presidents         Messrs FE White , AT Mytton

Joint Secretaries       Miss J O’Reilly; Mrs G Osborne

Treasurer                    Mr J Davidson

Committee                Mesdames EC Delohery; T Riley;M Moncur; Miss J Morton; Messrs FE White; J                                                  Webster; J Davidson.
 

Club show were held at the Bebarfolds Grounds, Leichardt or the Woodchopping Area at the old Sydney Showgrounds at Moore Park. Of a total of thirty three shows held in 1946, 29 were All Breeds and 4 were Collie shows giving us some idea as to the popularity of the breed back then. Eventually shows became regular fixtures at either St Ives Showground or Fairfield Showground and with record numbers or exhibits. The club held one Open Show (April) two Championship (June and October) and both incorporated obedience Trials and a parade in December which was combined with a Christmas party for members and their families. Today we only hold the two Championship shows (June and October) membership has fallen and so has the popularity of the collie. On the 9th October, 1994 we held the Glad Osborne Memorial Championship Show and Obedience Trial commemorating the life of our founder member Mrs G Osborne, her commitment to the breed and its impact on Australian Collies through the Glendallo prefix is undeniable.

 

1985 saw the first National hosted by the The Scotch Collie Society of Queensland with an entry of 146 and judged by Ms Charlotte Hoier of Denmark, October 10th and 11th 1988 saw the Collie Club of NSW host the Nationals at St Ives Showground with Judge Mr Lam Peelen of the Netherlands judging almost 300 exhibits. The venue was used for a meeting of delegates whose aim was to attempt the establishment of a National Breed Council – to align with the requirement set down by the ANKC for Collie Clubs throughout Australia to be able to stage National Specialties. Eventually the National Breed Council was formed and National Shows  became a much anticipated event on the show calendar.

The Collie Club of NSW went on to host the  National in 2000. This was to be a huge undertaking for our club as not only were we hosting the National Show we also invited the International Collie Society to hold their annual conference/holiday in conjunction with the show, to say that the event was a success is an understatement, it set the bar for future events the likes of which we may never see again! The current committee are currently working towards a National in 2021, numbers might not be as high as yester year, but the commitment and enthusiasm is there so its future looks bright.
