Sunshine After the Rain

Our Open Show went ahead after a previous 24 hours that included a 12 hour long downpour that flooded the ground and seriously challenged the resolve of the organisers and some of our campers, especially those who arrived on Friday afternoon and evening and had tents to put up. However, the morning dawned with bright sunshine and the fantastic drainage capability of this ground, that we had seen previously, demonstrated itself again. The top surface quickly dried out and within a few hours of the sun going up it was, for most of the show ground, as if the deluge of just hours before had never happened, what was anyone worried about!! I know it is stereotypically British to talk about the weather so much but it was such a stressful factor in the build up to the week-end that it provides therapy for me to talk about how well it all turned out! Hopefully the weather charm we enjoyed for many years at Grenoside has been transferred to this show’s new location.

The brilliant weather continued all day, even causing some to take some shelter for their dogs from the sunshine, this was unimaginable the previous night. The show was held under pretty constant blue skies but with cloud to prevent any extreme temperatures which combined with the brilliant setting of this show ground, I think most people there would agree, it was a perfect day and setting to enjoy a show.

The opening of the show was marked by a parade of carters and we thank everyone who took part in this. The day and evening before’s weather had put pressure on all the preparations for today so the effort made to take part in this display was much appreciated.

 

Thank you to everyone who supported our show in anyway whether just spectating, sponsoring classes, exhibiting or helping to deliver it but especially everyone who helped prepare the show ground through the awful conditions of the week before and Friday particularly. This weekend would not happen without a huge amount of of volunteer effort, more of this to come later as this and the Garden Party reports progress.

 

 

We also wish to thank our generous sponsors Wellness CORE who provided all our winners with bags of their quality foods and were represented today by Jodie Randle who is in most of the photos of the winners below.

Our Main Show judge Ed Forsey said he really enjoyed his day and the main show winners are given below with full results and more reporting and photos to come.

After the lunch break a couple of presentations were made before the commencement of the afternoon’s judging.

The first was to previous Club Chair Heather Head who retired from the committee at the recent AGM. Heather was unable to attend the AGM and this was the first opportunity to make this presentation so Club President (and now returning as Chairman as well) Steve Green presented Heather with a token of the club’s appreciation for her services over many years.

 

The second was to club member Judy Harris who has supported the club for forty years attending most events, including the AGMs, over that time and being well known to many members. The club had commissioned a personalised needle felt portrait of her current dog Peggy Sue from club member Lacey Abbott-Brown, which, I think it is very safe to say, Judy was delighted with, almost collapsing with the shock of the moment!
