Show secretary’s report – Elm Park

Another successful ElmRock weekend over for another year. We were so lucky with the weather, dry on Saturday and not too bad on Sunday, we didn’t get the terrible rain as forecast.

The weekend started at 10.00 on Friday morning when both clubs gathered their forces to start setting up the rings. A big thank you to Dave Gillet who comes over every year to help with the rings. Thank you to Teresa and Linda for manning the gate while the show construction was taking place. The fish and chips went down well at lunchtime. I think the whole show was set up by around 4.00.

Thank you to Les Willis for taking over gate duties late evening and early o’clock on Saturday and Sunday – greatly appreciated thanks. To Shaun and Malcolm for keeping an eye on the gate during the day on Saturday and Sunday. To the Elm Park members and the Thurrock team who helped during the weekend. To our judges and stewards for giving up their day – hope you enjoyed it. Also to the score board stewards for keeping the scores in order. To Colin and his stay team thank you. To Richard Kebble our Chief Steward once again, hope you’re ok for next year.

Once again Smiffys did a fab buffet lunch.

Congratulations to our two ticket winners Lorna Hilton and Halligalli Take a Bow and Kathy Russell and Ob Ch Ruskath Mokana Image and all the other successful competitors.

I hope I have not forgotten anyone.

Can’t wait to do it all again next year lol!
