A very busy Show! I am glad I managed to write all the prize cards before hand, otherwise I would have been in trouble. 112 Syrians, 42 Dwarfs and 37 Pet entries kept all our Judges well occupied. Many thanks to Terry O'Connor, Melissa Chamberlain and Sarah Charmley the three Judges, together with their Book Stewards Sid Skidmore, Catherine Baumber and Joanne Evans. Also a big thank you to Wendy Jones and her team of helpers in the kitchen for keeping us all well feed and watered. Thanks to Pete and Chris on Sales and all who helped them throughout the day and to Jenny for keeping us all in order (at least she tries).

Thanks to my mom, May for helping to Show Sec and to Frances Evans for putting up the Journals and dishing them out for me, it was a great help, many thanks Frances. Frances also helped put out the prize cards throughout the day and congratulations to her for winning the colouring competition,Well done.

Congratulations also to all the Winners, especially to Belvedere Stud for B.I.S. Syrian and Hamper Hams for B.I.S. Dwarfs. I hope you all enjoyed the show, it was a lovely big hall and it was so nice not to have to clean up at the end, pity it is not always the case.
