Everyone had a great time. The sessions were well run, the dogs, handlers and trainer all had fun.  All the COVID restrictions were adhered to, whilst still having a good lesson, and a great time.  Our grateful thanks to Bridget for this.

The terms of our hire of St Julian’s Hall were changed to make us responsible for a complete clean down of the hall after each use, which would take at least an hour, so at the time, we could not return there.
We maintain good links with St Julian’s Hall, as we have had connections with them for many years and they are losing revenue just like everybody else due to COVID.  The committee made a small donation to the hall, from club funds, as a gesture of goodwill.

MATCH NIGHT RESULTS ARE ON CLUB MATCH RESULTS PAGE

 

DOG OF THE YEAR COMPETITION

This is a friendly competition. The Rules are as follows:

A dog who has won an award which goes towards the title of “Champion” is not eligible for this competition

 (in the UK this means Challenge Certificate, aka “Ticket” or CC, in other countries this may have another name). 

If, during the course of the year,  your dog wins a CC, then that dog becomes ineligible for Dog of the Year and any of our Club Matches thereafter.

At each of our monthly matches, the dogs placed 1st in their class win 4 points, 2nd wins 2 points and 3rd 1 point

Dogs winning BIM gain 4 points, Reserve BIM gains 2 points. So the dog gaining most points throughout the year,

becomes Dog of the Year for that Year

Pup of the Year Competition

The Pup of the Year has all their points from Puppy and Yearling added up over the year and the Pup with most points is Pup of the Year.

Adult & Junior Handler of the Year

4 points for 1st in class, 2 points for 2nd in class and 1 point for 3rd in class.

These are added up over the year to find our Handler/Junior Handler of the Year

Christmas Party and Awards Night 2019

We have some beautiful trophies which are awarded to the winners of Dog; Pup; Adult Handler and Junior Handler each year.

What a great turn out for our Christmas Party this year. It was lovely to see so many of you. I hope you all had a fun time. There certainly was a lot of food and drink on offer!

A great big thank you to everyone who came, especially to the judges from our matches this year,  Jack Wood, Margaret Bull and Maria Williams.

A massive shout out to some very hardworking committee members without whom we would not have had a party; Kate Popple, aka Maggi IggamPauline Langridge and Kate’s stepson (Steve) who is not on the committee but put so much effort into helping us on the night.  Also to Karen Sandells for sourcing the beautiful rosettes which we presented to our award winners. Last but not least, all of our lovely members who came and entered into the fun and games, and on the whole there was not too much cheating in the musical Our Dogs 🤣😂🤣😂. Thanks also to Gayle Cavie, who came to take some photographs for us.

We hope you all had a Merry Christmas and we wish you a Happy, Healthy and Successful 2020.
