YKC Shows on the Schedules page  (ObedienceUK) 21/4/2017 20:58:23

For those of you not on facebook:

'Bringing out' (making them visible) the Shows which include YKC classes has been discussed as part of another thread (on ObUK facebook), but I thought I'd bring it out into it's own thread.

Chalfield (18th June) have separated YKC (and Obreedience Heat) into separate lines on the Schedules page, which has given me the opportunity of colour coding those lines. So now if you put a line on the schedules page and choose 'YKC' as the 'Type of Show' it will appear with a pale blue background.

If you have a look at the Chalfield entry, all they've put in the comments box is "YKC Obedience. See Open show for Schedule & Entry. ".

Show Secretaries please can you put the new details on if you have YKC.

BIRMINGHAM & DISTRICT GSD ASSOCIATION SHOWS  (polomazda) 11/4/2017 16:8:30

In March, with the relinquishing of Thames Championship status, I offered to host the ticket classes at our Open Show should a club not be in a position to hold a ticket show this year. I also stated that I would apply for double Championship status for Birm. & Dist.should no-one apply. The Kennel Club decided to extend the closing date and invite clubs to apply because it was preferable for the status to be given to another club. I fully appreciated their decision but still offered to host the tickets this year.
I have just been informed that my offer has been accepted and approved for 2017. This is for 2017.ONLY.
I can now publish my schedule, the ticket judges invited by Thames - Bronwyn Bartley and Dave Banks have been asked, accepted and approved by the KC.
Ticket handlers that offered to judge for me on the Open day will be released from their contract if you find me a replacement judge. It would be very difficult for me to find another 8 (approx) at this late stage, if anyone has no joy I will do my utmost to help and announcements about replacement judges will be made on this forum.
I have done this so the Obedience world do not have 1 less ticket show this year so please everyone help to make it a success.

MBCC - Campers please note  ( 11/4/2017 16:14:38

For various reasons, I am unable to camp this year. Someone will be coming round on Friday to book campers in on our list- please make sure that you are given our leaflet which gives you details of the local Vet/A&E in the event of an emergency. Should you need to contact any of us you can either get me on 07761 964175 or Bob Tunnicliff on 07973 122473. For those arriving on Thursday, just to confirm, this is to be after 1 o'clock please. On entering the camping field please avoid the area immediately on your right hand side as this is out of bounds. We are not marking pitches out this year so find your own spot and set up - we have approximately 130 campers so gardens are accepted, but please do not take up more space than you usually would. It is important that you park in rows leaving enough room for emergency vehiclesor you may be asked to move. Camping on the show field is for authorised people only.

For those who are arriving on Thursday, we would really appreciate it if you could spare us an hour or so on Friday at approximately 10.30 a.m. to help us set up. There are numerous jobs which need to be done, from setting up the rings to jobs in the marquee.

Thank you for your entries and I hope you enjoy your weekend and that the weather is kind to us

Midlands Border Collie Club - Easter Shows  ( 9/4/2017 18:22:51

Well, show time is getting closer and there a few things I wanted to mention/ask -
1) Campers, unless you have been told otherwise, please do not arrive until after 1 o'clock on Thursday and camp in the Camping field. Camping on the Show Field is for authorised camping only
2) Please could I ask for help with stay stewarding and decoy stewarding. We do not have Club members who can assist and the shows can't go ahead without your help. If you haven't done any before, just ask and we can show you the ropes.
3) Unfortunately CSJ are unable to attend this year but have once again kindly donated prize bags for the winners of all classes. We will have J & M Pets as usual and, once again, they have kindly donated the winners trophies. Also present will be Wizard Woodworking and The Howl Emporium. We also thank Dave & MaryRay for the loan of the fire extinguishers and tannoy system.

I think that's everything, keep your fingers crossed that the weather is kind to us.

BAGSD Oxhey, annual plea for help x  (WendyB) 8/4/2017 9:31:39

Morning everyone, with BAGSD Oxhey in just two weeks time, I need your help please...

We need a Novice steward as one of our novice judges hasn't got their usual steward available to help.

We also need about 7 scoreboard stewards... Not too onerous a job if you only have one dog and want to still work your dog, the busy times are during the running order and then later on towards the end of the class, particularly if there's scent to do.

We also need early birds to help with putting up rings (we mark out with spray paint the day before), take chairs and tables around and the class scoreboards.

Any kind early birds who can volunteer to park the cars would also be greatly appreciated.

Finally, we need stay stewards... There will be a signing up folder in the stay stewards tent from setting up time, so if everyone could volunteer for just one set of stays, fitting it around your own classes, we'd be very grateful.

This show is basically run by two or three people and a couple of regular volunteer helpers. It's just a pet club now. If we all pull together, we can keep Oxhey show going.

Please pm me if you can help with the novice stewarding vacancy or any of the 7 scoreboarding jobs or the car parking task. Feeling hopeful.... xxX You can also ring or text me on 07811911741 or email

Many thanks, posted on behalf of Judith Swan, BAGSD Oxhey. xxx

SAD NEWS ... MARGARET HALL  (CarolS) 29/3/2017 9:55:2

Margaret Hall sadly passed away peacefully in hospital on Monday night. Margaret was a stalwart of obedience for many years and will be well known to the 'old guard'.

She was a pivotal member of Chesvale DTC and one of it's longest serving members, having been trainer, treasurer, secretary, chairman and president over the years.

She will be missed by her family and in particular by her close friends who cared for her at home.

We will let you know details of funeral arrangements when they are finalised.

Hi Carol,

Thanks for letting us know about Margaret. I have known her also for many years, so was sad to hear the news.

Crufts Thank You  (bwianmcgovern) 13/3/2017 13:29:49

Am I going to wake up when the alarm goes off and realise that I have had yet another dream about winning Crufts? It is a recurring dream that I often have. I have had it for years, ever since I first went to Crufts as a spectator in 1981. Its the same dream every time, but with different dogs. At first with Jock, my first ever obedience dog, then with Kelsey, followed by Stevie. Next I dreamed of winning with the wonderful Dixie and this last 6 years it has been with Vito. In the dream, I am standing in the line with the top teams of the year and I hear my name getting called out. I walk forward to accept the most hallowed of obedience prizes. The feeling is indescribable. But of course, it is only and dream and I wake up and come back to reality. Did I ever think the dream would come true? No, not for one minute. I had the dream again last night, and this time it was more realistic than ever. Every detail was so convincing, then of course the alarm went offand it took me a few seconds to understand why the normal feeling of disappointment wasnt there because I was dreaming of something that had actually happened. We had won. My beautiful, lovely, gorgeous, brilliant Vito had given me my dream. We have won the most prestigious award in Obedience; the obedience championships at Crufts. And it really is a good as the say it is.

It has been a journey that has been 36 years in the making. There are so many people to thank for helping me on this journey, friends, family, judges. Too many to mention without sounding like an Oscars acceptance speech. I have been inundated with Good Luck wishes before Crufts and congratulations wishes since our win. Thank you all, I am forever in your debt.

I want to thank Alan Gresty and his fantastic team for deeming Vito worthy of this award. In all honesty, I wasnt as nervous as I thought I would be, and there are several reasons for that. I watched the round and felt that it was a round that would suit Vito. It looked as though it had been designed with flowing heelwork in mind and indeed it felt so good to work it. Alans team were just fantastic, they were welcoming and friendly, putting us at ease and they all had a warm smile for every competitor. Obedience judging and stewarding of the highest quality showing our sport at its best.

Thank you all.

Ria and Vito

Well done Ria , you & Vito were fantastic . I was wondering are you first Netherlands born person to win the title , .  (dingdongcharlie) 13/3/2017 16:9:55

Dearest Ria,

I watched every step and turn you both did , it was indeed, stunning to watch a pure team that delighted us all and entertained us at crufts.
I told you when I awarded you your first Reserve Ticket a Champion in the making and wow you have achieved the highest of honours, richly deserved, enjoy all the celebrations.
warmest of sincere congratulations and biggest of hugs.
Janet Oliver. Coriecollies.  (janet oliver) 13/3/2017 18:59:48

Hi Charlie, Yes Ria is the first person to win at Crufts in the obedience championships. She was not the first to qualify. There have been 3 others, Louise Mieras, Guus Scholten (with 2 different dogs) and Danielle de Jonge

We would like to say a huge Thankyou to all the lovely people who sent us messages and a huge array on the most wonderful cards, written with the kindest messages of support.
Crufts was ,for us, a bit of a 'Baptism of Fire' especially as our 'Rock' Sandra Phillips managed to fall and break her hip a few days before, Get Well soon Sandra I forgive you😉
But now , a few days later I am beginning to appreciate what an honour it was to compete which leads me into thanking the two judges Janet Bates and Russell Becque for gifting me this opportunity.
Also Alan Gresty and his team who worked so hard to produce possibly the most beautiful round I have ever worked in ticket!!!
I hope to do some more 'personal' thankyou's ' in the near future but there are just to many to list here, safe to say the 'Dog Show ' crowd are Simply the Best 😍

Sad news BAGSD Southern Area Show 2017  (SandraC) 7/3/2017 21:57:26

Dear All,
More sad news…. BAGSD Southern Area Show 2017
As you are all aware Thames DTC are no longer going to run an Obedience Show and have relinquished their ticket status. We have known for some time that the Committee of Thames were thinking about not running a show, but I had to wait for formal notification.

I have reflected long and hard about this decision, It is with regret the BAGSD Southern Area will now also have to pull out from running a Show on Sunday 10th September 2017. We cannot possibly run a one day show. Both shows only survived as we jointly ran the shows, pooled the resourced and split the expenses. Although I’m sure we would have a good entry as competitors loved the ground, but the hiring expenses, marquee, tables, chairs etc. are too expensive for one show to bear the cost of and of course it is far more beneficial / cost effective for competitors to camp for a two day show weekend.

Firstly I would like to thank The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Council for allowing Thames DTC and BAGSD Southern Area to run our shows on your ground at Ockwells Park, I know that this was by special permission and we have always been fully aware that you would not allow any other show of any description onto your grounds, we have been privileged to use these beautiful extensive grounds and it was only because of the local connections and of the very good working relationship with Thames especially Steve Devaney.

On that note I would like to thank Steve Devaney for all the hard work he has put into the shows over the now many years. There are too many other people to name from both shows, my friends and competitors, therefore in fear of missing someone I will leave it at that, but the people that helped year after year giving their support to BAGSD and helping me know who you are.

I would like to say thank you, a thank you is really too small to sum up my gratitude to you all, those who gave up their time to judges, steward, helped park up caravans & cars, helped on the day with many tasks including help set up both shows on Friday, helped me on the Sunday in so so many ways, taking stuff out, collecting stuff, refreshments, those that helped me in the tent, those who helped pack away at the end of the three days. I will miss your company, the friendship of you all, the competitors want for both shows to be a success, I will miss the Thames “guys” our usual “at the end of the day” glass of wine, cheers to everyone.

I would like to apologise to the judges that offered to judge for BAGSD this year, it is a great shame that I will not be able to take your up on your offer, maybe next year fingers crossed I will try to speak to you personally to apologise once we have Crufts done and dusted.

As you are all aware it is getting increasingly difficult to get judges, stewards, scoreboard stewards, stay stewards, general helpers, BUT if by some miracle, we can we will/might be able to come back next year in some form or another, BUT only if we have the help and assistance again of those that have always helped and from many many more.

We will all now have to watch this space.

Good Luck to you all at the 2017 Shows I hope to see at the shows.

Sandra Cobbold
BAGSD Southern Area Liaison and Show Secretary

Such a shame , another southern show gone , I loved both the Ockwell Park shows & have been Ch Stay Stwd at both , Lovely venue , great crowd , & lovely home made cakes ( thanks to Pat Devanay ) I will miss it .  (dingdongcharlie) 8/3/2017 8:0:56

Sad News but thank you for putting on your show with Thames for all the years .  (golden1.) 8/3/2017 8:32:36

Just a thought , have you considered joining forces with Cippenham , at the beginning of July , it`s in the Maidenhead area
  (dingdongcharlie) 8/3/2017 9:43:52

So sad for Steve and Sandra as , over the years they have given there dedication to us all.
Personal thank you.

As I have been posting here I am trying to get a show off the ground, application with the kennel club .
I do think that competitors must face the realism that venues to hire are between 1,500 to 2000 for a day, that is what is being asked 2017, then we have other expenditure, I think we must focus
And understand that the 5.00 entry day has gone .
