Show secretary’s report – East Kilbride

East Kilbride D.T.C. Champ Show
Sunday 1st of September

After the horrendous rain we had leading up to the weekend, what a relief that Sunday dawned dry & breezy! A short burst of drizzle midway through the morning was the worst we got – thankfully.

We are very fortunate that we can have access to the venue & it’s indoor facilities on the afternoon prior to the show, which saves us time & work early on the day – this is due to the cooperation of the staff at South Lanarkshire Leisure & Culture, and the ground staff at Brancumhall for which the Club is very grateful.

Thank you soooo much to all of our club members & also the members of Burnbank who turned out at 7.00 to help set up the rings & put up tents, and to all who helped steward Stays. I always think we are fortunate in Scotland to have such a strong support from other clubs and competitors to help make our Show Days go well.

Sheena and the kitchen ladies served up breakfast, lunch and cakes galore, as well as seeing that the judges were sent out fully nourished for the day!! Your hard work is always appreciated- Thank You xx

Sue and her ‘ladies in waiting’ provided lunch, which had all been prepared by Sue – and it was up to the usual high standard. Thank you all.
Thank you also of course to the judges and stewards who gave up their day competing to enable the show to go ahead.

Congratulations to all of our class winners – it’s fabulous to see the happy faces in the presentations.

Sadly we have had the last Show of the year here in Scotland – so set the date in your diary for next year – Sunday 6th of September.

Left at the Novice 1 ring were 2 dumbbells & we also have a blue knotted ball that was dropped on the bridge – just get in touch if you think they are yours. I will be at Stanhope.

Thank you for all the lovely comments made about the show- they are very much appreciated.

So another year has gone and hence the work starts again for next year! So happy to have the day off work to recover today – and for those who know me best, you’ll be happy to know that no manicure was harmed in the making of this show lol.

See you all around the shows.

Anne Marie & the committee of East Kilbride
