Saturday June 10 saw our first Championship Show of the Year and our COVID-delayed Open Show that was deferred from January after the virus took out so many of our exhibitors there were only 3 dogs left.
Our Championship show was judged by Gerard Price (NZ) and the Open show by Lydia Jin. Gerard also donated 3 spectacular ribbons for Best in Show, Reserve Best in Show and the Breeder of the Best in Show (won by Kathy Morton from Heathcote Kennels), which was a delightful surprise.
Thanks so much to our judges and to Shirley Maguigan for stepping up at the last minute and doing such a wonderful job as our steward. Special thanks also, to Debra Barltrop for the catering and set up and to Katie O'Neill for her great work figuring out the intricacies of catalogue marking.
