21 October 2017 – Outwood Memorial Hall, Victoria Street, Outwood, Wakefield, WF1 2NE
“My thanks to the committee for the invitation. To be asked to judge at any breed club event is always special and to be asked to officiate at this newly formed club was very much an honour.
The venue that the club has found is superb, easily reached within a couple of miles of the M1 and the newly refurbished hall is excellent. Space for a good sized ring and grooming area in the well lit hall made a very pleasant environment. My thanks to the exhibitors for the lovely entry and their sportsmanship in acknowledging the winners, to Terry Burgess for stewarding and keeping the ring running smoothly.
Judging is about assessing the whole dog, both virtues and faults and not just focusing on specific aspects.”
Rob McLeod (Judge)
