Gordon Setter Club of Scotland Championship Show
Thank you for kindly agreeing to assist with sponsorship for this event, held last weekend in Manchester. Here are the final photos from the show on 7 May 2016. Our Judge was Jayne Bennett (Jesham).
I am pleased to say, the event was a great success, and the help from CSJ with prizes was greatly appreciated.
We decided to provide a bag of CP24 for first place, with Lamb & Rice and Hike On! for second and third. (24 and especially Hike On have proved to be popular sellers at our IPO Club) For all 10 competitors, we provided a goody bag, containing a pack each of Gnaw Rolls! and Dem Bones!, along with some sample packs and literature.
As you may see from the photos above, second place went to Wendy in her first IPO3 level trial, which was a fantastic result. As the event was a qualifier, this result means she is now eligible to join the GB team at the FCI World Championships in Slovenia in September. As Wendy has worked hard for several years toward this achievement, I should not claim that it is entirely down to feeding CSJ and Storm Canis, but I have no doubt that helped!
Thanks again for the support. Next year is our 30th Anniversary as a Club. Both our open and champ shows are going to be, hopefully, very special and full of fun!
