The East Anglian Super Match 2001
THE BURGESS Civic Hall, St Ives was the setting for this stylish event. The organisation from start to finish was excellent. I thank the Officials for the kindness and hospitality I received during my visit.
The competition is held in two parts with three Judges - starting at 4 p.m. with the puppies, followed by the adults, after judging a Dinner Dance took place which was enjoyed by all. Both Contests are run on a Knockout basis which makes it exciting and keeps everyone on their toes.
32 puppies (four absent) gave my co-judges, Nick Bryce-Smith and Moray Armstrong ample choice for quality.
