2004 proved to be another successful year for the Club. Both the Open Show and Championship Show were well attended, with the raffle and Club stall greatly supported. Our thanks go to all those people who give so generously with gifts and donations, it is very much appreciated.
Both shows were held at Grenoside Community Centre, which is a lovely venue with plenty of parking, and space to walk the dogs. A special thank you to Susan Moore-McCloskey, who as usual provided excellent refreshments for our Championship Show.
Carol Rutherford (Carisco) was our judge for the Open Show held on the 21st February. Her principal winners were, Best In Show & Best Puppy: Mrs M Szczepanek’s ‘Kentwella An All That Jazz’, Reserve Best In Show & Best Dog: Mrs A Dauncey’s ‘Spymaster at Glenmiar’
Our Championship Show, which was held on the 24th October, was a great success with a lovely atmosphere. Our judge, Mrs Joyce Wild (Wiljoy) had drawn a very nice entry, her top winners were Best in Show & Bitch CC Carol Annan’s ‘Lomondview Clementine’ from Limit Bitch, Reserve Best In Show & Reserve Bitch CC Mr & Mrs Gaskell’s ‘Mayson Rosetta’ from Open Bitch. Dog CC went to Mr & Mrs Baker’s ‘Ch. Glenheath Blueprint’ from Open Dog and the Reserve Dog CC went to Mrs P Pagram’s ‘All Shook Up at Torcraig’ from Limit Dog. Mr & Mrs Gaskell’s ‘Mayson Zanadu’ was Best Puppy in Show. It was a pleasure to welcome some new faces amongst the exhibitors, some of whom had travelled from as far a field as France and Northern Ireland to attend the show – we hope to welcome them all back again in the future.
The Officers and Committee would like to thank all our members, friends and sponsors both home and overseas for their continued support and generous sponsorship.
