South Eastern Hound Club Premier Open Show is being held on Sunday 4th September at the Hickstead Showground, West Sussex. Judging Salukis will be Liz McKnight. There are 6 classes for Salukis so should be a fun day culminating with our annual picnic. Everyone is requested to bring along a donation for the picnic though we do request ‘no sausage rolls’. Co-coordinating the picnic will be
Marie Bryce-Smith (tel 01342 327573) and she requests that everyone ring her with an idea of what then intend to bring along. Last year the weather was dire and we nearly had a wash out so lets hope for better this year.
Two championship shows to report . Monday was the turn on Bournemouth. As the entry was so low, we can but assume that Mondays are not the best day for shows.
