January 2017
Well it's another new year. 2016 was our 25th anniversary show. As usual it was a great show, and we have all you to thank for that. But the rest of the year has been tinged with sadness, as we said goodbye to many of our furry best friends and to too many of our agility friends. Lets hope 2017 is kind to us all. So from all of us to all of you we hope you have a happy, healthy and prosperous 2017.

Just a quick reminder that Thursday night is our ‘Tribute’ night, so with our mystery act make sure you secure your booking as soon as possible when you get to the showground, entry ONLY permitted to ticket holders.

We have over 30 trade stands many of which also sponsor classes throughout the week. Many clubs and individuals sponsor classes to add to your enjoyment and allow us to give exceptional prizes.

During the week we have DINAS premium clothing for sale, so make sure you get in the queue on Monday evening to see what Ann has chosen to adorn our wardrobe for the coming season.

Just one plea from the committee, it takes months of planning to stage this event, we can do all of that in advance to you arriving at the show. WE NEED YOUR HELP DURING THE SHOW, please sign up on the ‘Helpers Form’ when you submit your entries. Remember, many hands make light work; after all, it is the holiday show for everyone, including the committee. PLEASE COME FORWARD TO LEND A HAND.
