Fun Day 2005

The Norwich and Norfolk
FUN DAY 2005

It was the turn of the Norfolk Terrier Club of GB to host the Fun Day with members of the Norwich Terrier Club on Saturday 27th August.

The beautiful print of a Norfolk which was raffled, was won by one of our furthest visitors, Janet Wright from Scotland.

As a special class we held a You Judge The Dog Competition. Three Norfolk and three Norwich Terriers were paraded and secretly placed by Ch show judge, Dorothy Dorkins, while the 18 competitors watched from the side of the ring; the dogs were each moved so they could be seen moving up and down and from side view. Competitors were then invited into the ring for a closer inspection, before submitting their choice. The winner was the one closest to Dorothy Dorkins’s placings.

2nd Roy Dykes
3rd Stuart Dallard

The usual novelty classes were put on, ably controlled by Master of Ceremonies, Jon Rudkin, and assisted by super-steward, Sally Brown. We were most grateful to all the members who assisted in taking entries, running the obstacle course, manning the two Club stands and all those who helped with the smooth running of this event. Only one hiccup, when Jon realised he had left all the sausages in his fridge for the sausage-catching event…substitute bait had to be used instead, which some dogs did not appreciate so much – they had been looking forward to those sausages!
