BMNCC and another Best in Show!

It was a very hot day for Banff, Moray and Nairn Canine Club's first open show of the year at the community centre in Lossiemouth on Saturday 30th May. It was pretty warm inside the hall but many people were to be seen sitting out on the grass making the most of the sunshine in between their classes. The catering van did a roaring trade in ice-lollies!

I'm pleased to be able to report another Best In Show award for a Spey Valley member - the second in 7 days! This time it's congratulations to June and Benson on taking the top award, a great result for a youngster. His breed class win also takes him to within 6 points of a Junior Warrent. We're keeping everything crossed for the next few shows June!

Now for other results. Let me know of any I've missed.

Jill's Barrie and Jamie both won their respective Cavalier classes and Jamie went on to BOB and G1. There was more success for the Pamojill affix when Chico went BNSC Toy and G3.

In hounds, Liz's Bunty won her class, BOB and G3. Erica and Doug's Charlotte won hers, as did Nicky's Alfie, but it was Charlotte who took BOB and G4.

We had a representative in the gundog group as Sue's Logan won his class and BOB.

Daveena's Rowan won her class and went on to terrier G2.

Ria handled Jasper to win the Junior Handling 6-11 years class, Jodi with Mollie won the 12-16 years class and went on to take Best Junior Handler. Apart from Jasper, Ria was also called upon to handle a papillon and Newfoundland - from one extreme to the other but good experience!

Well done everyone!

As ever, apologies for the quality of the photos from this hall, the lighting makes it difficult. Don't forget that you can see, and order, much better photos taken at the show on Stephen Hammond's website.
