A Christmas message from our own DINAS King Gerry Rex

HURSDAY DECEMBER 25TH 2014 15:00hrs.

As I sit here in my Royal apartment in our Northamptonshire estate, my family, dorgies and I reflect on the year now past, and wish to convey our heartfelt thanks to our loyal subjects within the household for caring for us and joining us once again during August on our Ipswich Estate.
I pay homage to the troops who generously gave their time to protect the various rings through all the different climates we were privileged to receive.
The visitors to our estate with their competing dogs, gave us overwhelming enjoyment and lasting memories of another annus spectacularis, and for this, my household and I thank you most sincerely.
My household and I thank Colimanor for their ‘Royal’ sponsorship over the last few years, and will be sorry they will not be joining us for 2015.
To you all, my loyal subjects, I appeal to you to contact myself or my sister Princess Rosie of Sleaford on should you know of another company who would wish to be considered as a ‘Royal Principal Sponsor’.
We look forward to an even better year ahead, on our Trinity Park Estate inviting my subjects with their dogs to THREE runs per day Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday plus your normal Saturday classes, not forgetting our Thursday & Sunday finals by invitation.
The Duke (as Patron of your mobile accommodation), requests your pleasure once again and trusts that you will choose to join him throughout the festivities on Monday 18th – Sunday 23rd of August 2015.
Members of my household will once more have your interests at heart with KC Championship Large dorgies on Tuesday, Championship Small and Medium dorgies on Friday. Not to mention the plethora of other classes taking place on the estate throughout the week.
To further enhance your enjoyment of your stay at our Ipswich estate we offer you a tour of the Castle, Bingo and a wonderful Quiz in our Park estate carriage house, plus disco in the Quiet Dorgie Hostelry and on the evening of Thursday (after the changing of the guard) in the Quiet Dorgie Hostelry you are invited to join us in the banqueting hall and ”Let me entertain you little monsters”? For Saturday, also in the banqueting hall you are invited to partake in Noise Blasting Sound?
To attend you will need to apply to or

May I send you and your families my very best wishes for the coming season, peace and success be with you all until we meet in August.

What is DINAS?

It is a great FUN holiday, exclusive to DINAS competitors and helpers only! It is a week of Agility  competitions from Grade 1 to Grade 7 Championship, so whatever your level of expertise, there are classes for you to enter, and have a great time. FREE entertainment. Camping on site for 800 caravans – with loos and showers! A MUST ‘go to’ for your holiday calendar.

DINAS started back in 1992 at Three Counties Showground, Malvern, after three years we out-grew the venue, a larger and better venue was found. Trinity Park,Ipswich, convenient for all links to the A14, brilliantly located from Harwich & Felixstowe for our European competitors, just a few miles from lovely beaches, superb woodland walks adjacent to the showground, wonderful pubs/restaurants within walking distance or a short drive away, plus the county town of Ipswich with its’ Marina and superb shopping centre, AND Sainsbury’s within walking distance of Trinity Park.
