Welcome to Shoreham Ringcraft

 In memory of and with thanks to Sheila Gunn, Alison Henshaw & Norman Brown

 Welcome to Our Website 

Hi everyone, I do hope you are all staying safe and well.

I’ve had messages from people who are asking if and when we might be starting training up again.  So to address this, the Committee have had online discussions and sadly we don’t see us being able to offer any training as such for at least the rest of the summer.  We have been told to expect a “second wave” of the virus in the winter and we have a committee made up, largely of people from the older sector who have to take care, and some who are younger but have ongoing health problems so we are unlikely to be able to start again until next year.

Some clubs are holding short outdoor sessions, but our hall has no outside area sadly and our insurance does not cover us for offsite activities and we would not be able to meet in large groups indoors anyway.

The terms of our hire of St Julian’s Hall are being changed to make us responsible for a complete clean down of the hall after each use, which would take at least an hour.

We hope to 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 over this virus.  The committee has decided to make a small donation to the hall, from club funds, as a gesture of goodwill.

(There’s no reason why you cant meet in small groups outdoors to practice). Just keep your distance, and wear your mask if you are getting closer.

It’s likely, that when any shows do go ahead, you may be asked to wear a mask in the ring, so do practice that so that your dog get’s used to seeing people wearing them. I’d also recommend that you practice showing your dog’s bite, as judges are likely to be asked to request you do this too.

If, in the meantime, anything changes, the Committee will reconsider and let you know.

Do stay well. Keep practicing when and where you can.

Best wishes to you all

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.
