I have ordered some rosettes for the mini 'fun' (note the word 'fun' here) Working Tests at the end of the day and have some prizes kindly donated by Sporting Saint :D . Just need to source some prizes for the Best looking Award (should we have one for handlers too?)

I know Becs (bless her heart) has been round asking for raffle prizes - thank you :flower:. I have two hampers to add ( a doggy one full of stuff your gundog is probably not supposed to play with :roll: and soon one from my friends up the road who run a Deli in town).

I will soon firm up numbers, people and all details with you soon :wink:

Have also been for a photography practice run session with our wonderful Professional Photographer on the day - Angela. Thought you might like to see some examples of her work so have posted a link of a few (slight understatement :oops: ) of my boys Barney and Wylye. You'll be able to buy prints/electronic versions online off Angela afterwards :D .

Will update more later. So looking forward to meeting you all, Hx

Wonderful photos- I'm so excited about seeing all the wonderful shots that Angela will have the opportunity to take of Zorro diving into the water, running like lightening for the dummy, looking alert and focussed by my side (or maybe dozing off on the walk-up-exercise, blanking me when I try to direct him, sucking up to other handlers hoping for a sniff of their goody-bags!!) 8O

Hampers are sounding exceedingly top-drawer, but I have to warn you all, the crochet-toilet roll holders are raising a LOT of excitement so I'm expecting sales of raffle tickets to be pretty spectacular! I've just got to persuade Di that she might like to donate that scrummy little Bond to the raffle and then I think we'll be onto a winner!

Not long to go now........ yay!

I'm really looking forward to this too! (Although must admit I hope the caravan site doesn't have pitches which require too much reversing of the caravan 8O :roll: ) I have a couple of raffle prizes lined up - just pray I will remember to pack them!

We are going to have a ball!
:lol:

Katy

PS don't forget Becs, the crocket bed socks are MY raffle prize!!!! :lol:

Really looking forward to meeting everyone, Tau hasn't yet shown any signs of coming into season, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed there'll be no sudden hormonal swings (from any of us).

Woooohoooooo I am SO looking forward to this. Not many more sleeps now :lol: :lol: I'm blocking out the mammoth drive to get there.... working on Wizard of Oz principles, if the intrepid Jocks close their eyes and click their heels three times, us and the woofs will magically arrive in Wiltshire feeling completely refreshed and well rested!

ooo.... im excited too... although slightly apprehensive that i may embarrass Carly with my handler skills...

(I've also been doing the "if you dont behave you're not going in august...but it doesnt seem to work so well with Carly..)
