We would like to thank
For supporting the Society's Open Show
With their generous gifts
HELD ON SUNDAY 24th JUNE 2018
AT MERSTHAM VILLAGE HALL
SURREY RH1 3 ED
Another very enjoyable show which was well supported. Whilst the entry was not large the quality was sufficient to make both our judges Brian Speed and Gina Jones think about their placings. Both Brian, seen in the picture receiving his gift from the Society's President Joe Samby & Gina enjoyed their day with the Society and we would like to thank them both for their efforts. No show can be successful without the exhibitors entering and spectators coming along to support the show and our thanks go to those that attended. Lastly, thank you to the band of helpers who came along to help set up the show. We hope to see lots of you at the Championship Show in October.
I would like to thank the committee of Southern Counties Staffordshire
Bull Terrier Society for asking me to judge their open show. I would like
to congratulate them on a well-run show. I would also like to thank my ring
stewards who kept things moving in such an orderly fashion, also a big thank you
to the exhibitors for bringing their dogs for me to look at and for accepting
my decisions in such a sporting manner.
You will find no mention of bite or dentition in my critique as I only found one fault. There will be plenty of mention of wide fronts bone and depth of chest as this an important part of the standard.
