Good Morning and Welcome
I would like to begin this meeting by thanking you all for attending the
AGM today with special thanks to our Secretary Ian, Treasurer, Lynn and
all committee members who give, freely, of their time and expertise
Today’s meeting is where the Officers and committee members are
here to share with you the Society’s business and events of the
past 12 months.
The Society’s year began with an Open show being held at the end
of January at Thorpe Willoughby, nr York. The judge, on this occasion,
was Mrs. Liz Smith, from Scotland who drew a lovely entry. Liz made Maxine
Fox-Shone’s tricolour dog PAMEDNA RENAISSANCE Best in Show. Reserve
B.I.S. was awarded to Diane Whitfield ‘s ruby dog BEVELMOUNT RED
BEAUJOLIA, with Best Puppy being awarded to Norma and Gordon Inglis’s
blenheim bitch CRAIGOWL TOUCHE. Alison Walker won both Best Veteran and
Best Vintage in match with both of her dogs – KOROLEVSKY IOSIF SH.
C.M. and KRINGLEHOLM ENCORE SH. C.M.
On 5th April the Society
held its AGM followed by the increasingly popular Super Match organised
by committee members Alison Walker, Susan Smith and Lynn Crane. This is
now a well established annual event. Last year we had an entry of 80 dogs.
As it was Easter Sunday we gave Easter Cream eggs as prizes. This year
70 dogs had qualified and were invited to attend; although we did have
a reduction in the number of dogs that qualified from the previous years
the Society would like to thank those members who supported this event.
We sat down to an excellent Sunday lunch, prepared by Christine McFarlane
and her merry band of helpers.
The surprise judge for the day was Carol Siddle, (Penemma) who made Richard
and Kelly Lee’s CALONLAN PERFECT KISS FOR KELRICK Best in Match
and Reserve Best in Match – Louise Greenhalgh’s home bred
bitch LACERVELI A PERFECT WORLD.
At the beginning of August saw this Society host our Championship show
at Stafford. Sue Korn (Sandusk) judged the dogs and Diane Whitfield (Bevelmount)
Our second Open Show of the year was held at Thorpe Willoughby Village
Hall, near Selby. The judge being Lesley Kilcoyne made Norma and Gordon
Inglis CRAIGOWL KEEP IN TOUCH Best in show, with best Opposite Sex going

& Andy Shone’s TAMSYE THEO AVEC PAMEDNA Best Puppy in Show.
