I have received the following from John Owen, Hon. Sec of the Northern Saluki Club:
“We are looking for a Saluki enthusiast and member of the NSC who would be interested in organising the NSC presence at the Crufts Discover Dogs exhibit. The previous organiser is no longer available.
This would involve organising the Saluki Breed booth on the Wednesday, or first thing Thursday, before the show starts in earnest, and timetabling people and their Salukis to cover the booth for the four days of the show. There are expenses available for people who want to be involved and free parking tickets for the duration of the event. It also provides passes for dogs which allows access in and out of the show at any time. Finally, the booth needs to be packed up at the end of the show which would need to be organised.
If you are interested, please could you let the committee know by sending an email to this address. Then we will be able to provide you with the full details and contact information for the Crufts Discover Dogs organiser. We need a fairly quick response. We have been asked to confirm our involvement by the 5th January 2023.
If you are interested in being involved, but not the organiser, but are willing to take your Salukis to cover the Discover Dogs booth for one of the periods over the course of Crufts, please also reply to this email and that information can be passed on to the person who agrees to organise the event.
Best wishes, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
John can be contacted on email: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0115 930 5473
