Irish R&W Setter Club of gb hosts challenge match


BIC Kath Griffin’s Sh Ch Vanders Veracity and
RBIC Charles Henderson’s Anjuli Iced Warrior at Temynloah with judge Penny Williams

Winner of the annual Irish Red & White Setter Club of GB’s Challenge match was Kath Griffin’s Sh Ch Vanders Veracity; RBIC was Charles Henderson’s Anjuli Iced Warrior at Temynloah and BP Mary Sherratt’s Eusanit Miss Saigon for Charnborough, handled by Margaret Pitman.

The Challenge match, open to Irish Red & White Setters who have achieved a CC or RCC and puppies who have been placed first, second or third at a Championship show with CCs on offer, attracted a good entry.

The judge, announced on the day, was well-known gundog specialist Penny Williams (Bournehouse). Penny thanked the Club for the invitation and said how much she had enjoyed the day, saying how important special events are to a breed where everyone can get together to socialise, have fun and compete. Master of Ceremonies, Martyn Ford, made the draw for the match and ensured the competition went smoothly in his usual jovial fashion.

This year the Challenge was held at a new venue near Tamworth which proved very popular. Exhibitors and spectators contributed to an American picnic lunch, co-ordinated by Gaye O’Connor, Helen Cohen and Chris Heimes, while the hall was well decorated with photographs and Club insignia. All exhibitors received a commemorative rosette and photograph.
