The Midland Hamster Club

(Affiliated to the National Hamster Council)


This was Ian and myself's first stint as show secretary. Thanks to everyone for being patient with two show sec virgins! A reasonable turnout with over 100 Syrians and about 20 Dwarfs. Thanks to the two judges Melissa Chamberlain (Hope the car is fixed) and Mike Turnidge. Thanks also to Val Swingler for providing the food and particularly May Willets and Jeanie Parlett for jumping in at the breach to man the kitchen. The annual NHC awards were presented at the show and it was nice to see so many people collect their awards personally (especially as a six foot hamster was on the loose).
