Lochaber Open show

On Sunday, Lochaber and District CA held their annual open show at the usual venue of The Nevis Centre at Fort William. The show was brought forward a few weeks this year, which meant that there wasn't the same show of autumn colours but the journey there was still a very scenic one. The weather was good over on the west coast with plenty of sunshine but the summit of Ben Nevis remained hidden by a stubborn cloud .

There were less club members at the show than in previous years but there are still some good results to report.

June's Benson is still on a roll, he won his class then took the group and followed it up by going Reserve Best In Show! Also in the working group, Joanne's Walter took Best NSC and then G2.

Only one hound result, Ria helped Erica out by handling Charlotte who went on to BOB.

In the pastoral group Jenny's Sadie was BOB and Linda and Vic's Gino won his class and BOB.

The only utility win I know of was Linda and Ron's Denzil, who won his class and BOB.

In toys Elizabeth and George's Giovanni was Best NSC and G2 and puppy Lola was Best Toy Puppy. One of Les and Rita's poms took BOB and a group place but I'm not sure which one at the moment - if anyone knows, please tell me. Ria's Jasper was BOB.

In the terriers, Daveena's Kia (?) was BOB and Karen's Ceilidh beat Fergus to take BOB and then G4.

Congratulations to all!
