My thanks to the officers and committee for inviting me to judge their open show. I thoroughly enjoyed my day, I thought the atmosphere at the show was very good and all the exhibitors supported each other. My thanks to my two very able stewards, Tan Nagrecha & Andi Horwood for keeping the ring in check and kept it following, and finally my thanks to the exhibitors for entering under me.
