Show secretary’s report – East Kilbride

East Kilbride DTC


Show Secretary’s report.

Apologies for the late report, but safe to say our day went without a hitch and we were blessed with perfect dog show weather (well we did after the rain went off!).

Thank you as usual to our Judges & Stewards, for giving up their day to allow us to take part in our fabulous hobby, particularly to Bill Pykett, who stepped in at late notice to carry out his 20th appointment of the year!!!!

We were indebted to Bill for answering a ninth hour plea.

Thank you to everyone who helped set up & take down on the day, carry judges’ refreshment bags & decoy steward; from club members to kind helpers.

I never usually name anyone as I would feel awful if I missed anyone out, but this year I really must single out Gordon Forrest , who agreed to be Chief Steward, but also was a massive help on the day- he never stopped- carrying tables & chairs, taking rings down, and always with a smile & a bit of banter. Thank you so much Gordon- I can’t tell you how much I appreciated your help.

Sheena, Anne & Maureen very capably made sure our officials were well fed at breakfast, and Sue produced a lovely buffet lunch- thanks ladies, for your hard work. Thank you to all who contributed to the judges’ catering, including our trusty soup makers!

Well done to all our winners & those placed, we hope to see everyone back next year on 3rd of September- our CC judges are (subject to KC approval) Annette Benoist (D) & Katie Embleton (B).

Kilmarnock Open Show will be on the day before at the same venue- good excuse for a weekend trip!

Finally, lost property in the day was a green square klippy treat tub found at the top of the field near the A rings and a sum of money near the front of the car park- a single note.

If anyone owns either, just get in touch & I will arrange return.

See you all next year!

Anne Marie Parker
