Many thanks to the Committee of this Club for giving me the opportunity to award CC for the first time. I really enjoyed my day and delighted to find later that my BOB had gone on to take RBIS and winning one of those very impressive Welsh Dragons a super memento of the occasion. Thank you to the exhibitors for my quality entry with no absentees. Places will change under other judges because many decisions were very close and I am quite sure there are a number of future champions in the entry. I was honoured to be given the chance to judge so many super exhibits. Also my stewards were delightful it really does help working with efficient and pleasant co workers who put me at my ease.
