It was a privilege to be invited to judge this championship show and I would like to thank the committee and members for its warm welcome and the excellent hospitality on the day. I should also like to thank my steward who kept things running smoothly. Such a shame that there were so many absentees, but what I had, all were of very good quality. Congratulations to my Best of Breed winner on “doing the double”
