Just a reminder that the walk in aid of Saluki Welfare Funds is to be held on Saturday 16th July starting from St Peter’s Methodist Church, Riley Street, Earby BB18 6NX which is between Colne, Lancs and Skipton, Yorks. This is organized by David Hartley, head warden for the north. He has requested those who will be attending to please bring along a contribution to the raffle.
Lynda Dunn from Ireland has sent the following: The Saluki Club or Ireland has it’s first Championship Show on Saturday, 20th August with Saija Juutilainen of Wallaby's salukis, judging. The show is at the start of the Irish week- long show circuit with the opportunity for 6 Green Stars (CC) over the week. We are absolutely thrilled that the Irish Kennel Club has given us special permission to hold this show as we are still quite a young club.
The circuit shows are a very relaxed week of showing as there are days during the week where there are no shows and one can socialise or sightsee.
Information on the show can be found at http://www.dogshowentry.ie/OnlineEntries/Doc/Schedules/SAL_SCH16.pdf and postal entry is also available.
Stuart Mottershow has sent notice that at the recent Kennel Club of Jersey Championship Show, Ulmarra Bollinger (Diesel) was Best of Breed, Group 2 and JSY RCC. The judge was Sarah Hempstock. Diesel is owned by Wendy Marshall of Guernsey and Stuart Mottershow. (Can you become a Jersey Champion?)
A couple of weeks ago I put in information regarding Dr Francis Broadway our judge for the Hound Show. It seems I have stated the wrong affix for him. It should have been Odi et AmoElessar
