CARDIFF 18.4.98

A glorious sunny day was in store for all those who attended the Cardiff Show, although I didn't see much of it as I was kept busy show secretarying all day. A good entry with 133 Syrians and 45 Dwarfs.

Many thanks to both of the Judges - Susan Washbrook (Syrians) and Sarah Charmley (Dwarfs) for doing a good job all round. Thanks also to the Pen Stewards and especially to the ladies in the kitchen who did a good job in keeping us all fed and watered all day. Thanks Chris for judging the Pets - 18 in total and to everyone else who helped to sell raffle tickets, sales, and most important, clean up at the end. Well Done!

Congratulations to all the winners, especially Terry O'Connor for winning Best in Show and the Area Diploma.

Elaine Skidmore.
