Cheltenham 2017 Show Managers Report

By Emma Galbraith

Well that’s it for another year .Many thanks to all the Judges, Stewards , club members and non members who gave up their day to make the show possible. Fortunately the weather was very kind to us this year which always makes for a good day. Pet Needs were again in attendance and kindly donated the trophies to the winners who also received a goodie bag from our sponsor this year Platinum UK dog food.

This year we had a few changes as we were able to use the school rooms so instead of going over to the pub for lunch we decided to try and do the catering ourselves I say ourselves again a massive thanks to Veronica who not only catered for all the judges etc but also managed to work her dog in two classes and get placed in both. So to the people who can’t take five minutes out of their day to help whether it’s in the stay ring or on a scoreboard try working a dog and catering for 70 !!!.

After last year’s successful Special class ring we decided to have one again this year and again it was very well supported with Claire Vicky and Glenis working non stop throughout the day and receiving rave reviews. I believe the final total raised was £140.10 . Many thanks ladies I hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as everyone that came in to your ring.

Many thanks again to Rob Bint who again manned the training ring every time I looked over the queues were there. Which reflected in the £110.60 that used raised through the day fantastic.

The tombola is always a crowd puller and always manages to raise money this year the total was £197.90 . Thanks to Ann and Maria for running it.
In total we managed to raise £498.60. Which always goes to local animal shelters. So thank you also to the catering bus who kindly donated £50.00 so to anyone who bought a ticket had some training , bought a coffee or took on temptation alley a huge thank you.

Congratulations to all our winners and runners up we hope everyone who attended had a fabulous day and a productive day with your dog.
We look forward to seeing you again next year
