Eurogroom 2003

Linda Forsyth, Jan Newdick and Melanie Winters Holmes were 1st, 2nd and 3rd
in the Show Class. Linda went on the be Best in Show

Eurogroom is now a very well established competition that attracts some of the best groomers from all over the country. It is sponsored by Oster and not only has the competitions that go on throughout the day but has a useful and well attended series of seminars and demonstrations. This year’s competition was held at the Sports Centre in Bracknell - an excellent venue except for acoustics. The judges this year were Myra Atkins, Linda Baker Barker, Denney Lorraine and Agnes Murphy so the quality of the judges certainly mirrored the quality of the grooming.

A full list of the prize winners is attached but special mention must be made of Linda Forsyth who as well as being the Judges and the People’s choice for Best in Show, won the Hand Stripped and Clipped Gundog Class, the Show Class and came third in the Hand Stripped and Clipped Terrier Class. I am always interested in any opportunity for young people to be encouraged and I was delighted to see both a Career Start Class and a Junior Class scheduled

The standard was very high and Anita Bax and Peter Young are to be congratulated on once again hosting a most successful day.

Career Start winner Kim Marshall
