South Eastern Hound Club schedules are now available. Last years competitors will have received one through the post but if you have not and would like to enter, please contact Cliff Dargonne on telephone 01273 517314. They can also be obtained on line at Fosse Data. South Eastern Hound is a special show as it has a party atmosphere with a lovely bring and share picnic come rain or shine. This year will be the same. According to the information supplied in the schedule, the location of the show has changed to a new area at Hickstead Showground which will provide for more space for the rings, a bigger marquee and more trade stands. This is a premier show so BOB qualify for Crufts. Judging Salukis will be Liz McKnight of Azrams Greyhound fame. There is a good selection of breed classes plus many other AV classes to attend.

There were friends of our breed from different countries that joined us on the day and as it happens there were many celebrations post judging all around the Saluki ring.
