We think that the whole of Cardiff must have known that we were there, judging by the response that we had to the pet class. They started coming at 10 o'clock and were still rolling in after judging had begun. We ended up with 35 pet entries and a medal was well and truly deserved for the pet judge, Elaine Skidmore, ably assisted by May Willetts, book steward and chief bodyguard! Jenny Rees had found us a good venue, fairly spacious (after 35 pet owners had gone!) and reasonably easy to find. Many people helped out, so please forgive us if we miss anyone off the list.
Thank you to Val Swingler for judging Syrians and to Sue Washbrook for judging Dwarfs, and to their book stewards, Terry O'Connor and Elaine Skidmore respectively. Thanks also to the Syrian pen stewards, Helen and Hillary Myall, helped by Andrew Bryan. A big thank you to Mrs.Printall and family for running an excellent kitchen and also to Ian Evans for willingly adding more tables to an ever-growing pet section. More thanks go to Joanne Evans who ran the children's competition and bullied everyone into buying raffle tickets (twice over if she could get away with it !) Thanks also to Chris and Pete Logsdail for running the sales.
Congratulations to the winners, Netherwood Hams who won B.I.S. and Lilliput Hams who won B.O.S. in Syrian and to Jean Tye and Carol Leat who took both B.I.S. and B.O.S. in Dwarf. The Pet competition was divided into prizes for male and female hamsters. Congratulations to Suzanne Price and Sian Jones who won.
Sarah and Peter Charmley.
