Chesvale DTC Show Secretary’s report

CHESVALE DOG TRAINING CLUB
OPEN SHOW SUNDAY 6TH MAY 2018

Every year, twice a year, I sit down to write my Show Manager’s report for our open obedience shows. Every year I don’t think that the Chesvale members can top their performance on the last year. HOWEVER, that is exactly what they did.

From arriving on Saturday afternoon, armed with grass rakes to ensure all the rings were clear of any lose grass clippings, to turning up early on Sunday morning to help set up the rings, assist with ‘tent erection’ and generally working like little beavers all day to make such a wonderful day for everyone. Not only our members but husbands and children (slave labour was mentioned at one point) mucked in with whatever needed doing. The ladies in the kitchen (used to call them girls when they started but time has moved on!) yet again supplied a fantastic spread for the judges and helpers at lunchtime and the second team came in to serve the afternoon teas and lovely homemade cakes.

Lanarkshire CTA Show Secretary’s report

As this was my first year as show secretary I knew I had big boots to fill, our previous show secretary Eilleen Murphy had decided to retire from being our show secretary after 40 odd years, she done an amazing job as show secretary and she is still helping me now.

A massive big thanks to all of the judges, stewards and stay stewards who helped us out today without your help there would be no show, thanks again.

 

Well what can I say about our helpers today well quite a lot actually, our club members are all amazing they go the extra mile to help out, from the members that set up the rings, car parking, catering, stay stewards and everything else they helped out with running our show you are brilliant, can you do it again next year lol.

Our weather this year was soso a wee bit chilly with some rain so next year we have put an order in for sunshine fingers crossed the big man helps us out 😎.

So thanks again for everyone that helped us run this fabulous show and we hope to see you all next year.

Worcester 2017 Show Secretary’s Report

Another glorious weekend with the weather arriving as ordered – maybe a little too hot but a few ice creams certainly helped!!

Firstly I would like to thank our club members (and several of their other halves) for all their efforts and hard work before, during and after the shows. We are only a small club so it takes an exceptional effort to get the show up and running.
