copied from facebook. IMPORTANT REDCAR SHOW   (puppies) 30/8/2017 14:45:58

Karen Davies
36 mins
No easy way to announce this so here goes. Redcar DTC regret to announce that due to the decreasing committee members and generally the lack of help we receive both in the run up to the show and on the day, we feel that at the moment, the way things stand, it would be impossible to go ahead with the show in 2018. We have in the past, managed to get by with last minute volunteers who are very much appreciated, usually the same faces, or people who say they will turn up to help, but dont, or those with many reasons as to why they cant help. This leaves us short of the mark for the show to run as smoothly as we want it to, to enable us to keep our reputation of running a holiday show by the seaside, for everyone to enjoy.
We have come to accept this but our manning levels are now so low that holding our show has become impossible. Please dont see this as a threat or a toys out of the pram scenario, its simply a fact.
After discussing this with a number of people, it has been suggested that I put a list of job vacancies here on facebook to see if all of the positions can be filled. So here it is, a last ditch attempt to save our show. I look forward to your comments.
Many of the jobs listed below somehow usually manage to get organised with one of us running up and down the show field asking for help, scent decoys, stay stewards, judges refreshments, etc and although they all eventually get filled, we still waste precious time franticly searching people out the length of the show field and its becoming harder each year.
Perhaps this is the only way to go to prevent further show losses perhaps we should have some kind of area committee to ensure we have enough people to staff each show.
So with this in mind, Ive listed the jobs below which we have difficulty filling. Obviously there are many more jobs but we can manage the ones not listed. If the gaps can be filled with definates and not maybes or well try then perhaps I can start to search out judges but if not, sadly, after over 35 years of running a show, well be calling it a day. I know, get the tissues out!

list of jobs is on obeduk facebook.

Can appreciate your dilemma, but seeing this on obedience UK, I cannot help as I live in the South of England, BUT, not everybody is on facebook and consequently it could be why people do not come forward to help-maybe all the plea's for help should be on here as well as facebook. I know several people who wont and don't want to do facebook.
Just a thought.
Good luck.  (chris P) 30/8/2017 17:40:53

Yes, Please put list of jobs on here as i don`t "Do" Facebook,but do help at a few shows so will be happy to see if there is one I can do?  (GLENDALE) 31/8/2017 10:3:0

I don't do facebook
I too live in the south otherwise would help.

Elm Park Show, Decoy/Stay Stewards wanted  (iappleton) 20/9/2017 10:59:34

Hi All, just a little plea for any kind souls who would be able to help out in the stay ring, we have most of the morning covered but when our stay team go to lunch I'll be taking over for an hour ( 11:55-13:00 ish ) so some willing volunteers to do a couple of stays would be great.
Also after lunch some of our stay team will be needed for Decoy stewards so again anyone willing to do a couple of stays or offer to be a Decoy would help us no end.
So don't be shy just send us a Text/email/message or pop your head in the marquee on the day and let Julie or myself know.
Many Thanks Ian and Julie.

Possible dates for NBBAGSD Area show 2018  (Dyane) 9/9/2017 23:21:54

First one could be 13th June 2018. Any shows within 150 miles of Beverley planning on this date for their show who hasn't applied for a licence or put the show on the schedule page ?

Doh should be 13th MAY 2018  (Dyane) 9/9/2017 23:23:58

13 May is Culverstone Ch, Wirral and Plymouth  (abenoist) 10/9/2017 14:36:3

Thanks Annette Wirral might be a bit close will look up some other non racing days  (Dyane) 10/9/2017 17:40:44

17th June, 1st July, 15th July,   (Dyane) 10/9/2017 17:50:10

Just guessing Dyane but think those dates are probably Chalfield, Chadkirk & NAABTS. The second two being weekends, I also think Spalding may even be 17th July.  (Kairobea) 10/9/2017 18:35:53

Sorry 15th July
  (Kairobea) 10/9/2017 18:37:1

Thanks Sue. I wish clubs would apply for their licences so the KC have the days :-(
  (Dyane) 10/9/2017 19:32:19

Anyone from Chalfield, NAATS or Chadkirk confirm Your show dates ???  (Dyane) 11/9/2017 15:17:55

3rd June ?  (Dyane) 11/9/2017 17:46:55

I take it no one is interested in helping us find a date for next year's show. Perhaps no one wants the show to be held. Will give it another week & then if no replies another show will be lost.  (Dyane) 13/9/2017 14:34:18

Chalfield 17 June, NAATS 14/15 July CHADKIRK 30 June and 1st July. What about 7/8 July? Or earlier in year 2/3 June (Cheshire may be on 3 June)
  (abenoist) 13/9/2017 17:28:55

Thanks Annette. We have to fit in with the racing days & if racing is on Fri/Mon it's a no go as some horses arrive the day before along with the outside broadcast stuff which takes up half of available car parking-plus their caterers prepare stuff the day before too so even more car parking etc taken up.

Non racing weekends are any dates prior to 18th April(first racing date), 29th April, 13th May, 20th May, 27th May, 3rd June, 17th June, 24th June, 1st July, 15th July, 29th July, 5th Aug, 12th Aug, 19th Aug.

There other events not yet announced that may be on the above dates  (Dyane) 13/9/2017 17:47:43

17th June is the Beverley Folk weekend so ground not available  (Dyane) 13/9/2017 19:0:11

Thanks for trying Dyane, would love to keep this lovely local show x
Mandy and the boys  (MandyM1) 13/9/2017 19:17:52

you could use 3rd June I think,
Nicki Fildes-Moss  (dellkos) 13/9/2017 20:21:4

Definately think 3rd June would be good Dyane.
  (Kairobea) 14/9/2017 15:21:5

3rd of June might still be Cheshire, no decision will be made on this until after the weekend show on 7th and 8th of October 2017. Sandra  (Rooney) 15/9/2017 11:19:17

Spalding is on the 15th July 2018 - we have applied for our dayes up to 2020 so the KC should know!  (Debbax) 18/9/2017 23:33:44

Alison Barrell''s puppy Trim  (trishajones) 3/9/2017 15:9:13

As many of you will know Alison's beautiful puppy Trim was very poorly just before Ditton weekend. The vet did not know what was wrong so he was referred to a specialist for an MRI and CT scan. On Wednesday 23rd August the MRI scan showed he had a congenital cyst on the brain, pressing on the spinal cord, and the only option was to put him to sleep. Needless to say Alison is totally devastated, he was such a beautiful puppy in every way and that it should happen to one so young and full of life and promise, and to Alison who is so devoted to her dogs is a tragedy. If you see her at shows, please do not mention him, or if you do, just a brief 'sorry' as she is really struggling coming to terms with her loss. If you could please pass this on to anyone who may not have seen this, so hopefully no-one will come and ask her how her puppy is. Thanks everyone, life sometimes is a real bitch!

So sad to read this, so sorry Alison.

East Kilbride Champ Show - Secretary''s Report  (AMP) 5/9/2017 13:14:35

East Kilbride DTC Show Sunday 3rd September 2017
Show Secretarys Report
As usual the annual report begins with a huge thank you:
Thanks to all of the members and their families who turned out to help on the day, especially those who were on the field at 7.00 to assemble the rings and make sure everything was in order. Special mention goes to Kirsten, Joan and Alan who had done it all the day before at Kilmarnock.
The Burnbank ladies and Lesley who are ace ring putter-uppers and taker-downers, not to mention Lynne & Lesleys tent skills; Sandra and Margo for [wo]manning the car park not an enviable task but they did an ace job.
To the staff in the kitchen, members and their families and non-members for assisting Sheena in the nerve centre; Sue Howell also did more than her fair share of baking and serving!
To Sue Barclay for putting on a fabulous buffet for the judges and their teams and to Kirsten and Joan again for getting the pinnies on & doing their best waitress impressions!
To all of those who helped in the stay ring [if you build it, they will come]:
Pamela, Ethel, Judith, Christine, Margaret, George, Charlotte; I hope I have not missed anyone and if I have I apologise but thank you hugely as we could not have managed without you.
To all of our judges, stewards, scribes and scoreboard markers, thank you for giving up your day so that others can get the chance to compete with their dogs.
Thanks to Alexis for stepping in to judge at short notice, and to Carole & Ellen who both stood in to scribe; I hope you are both on the mend now, Janice & Jean.
Thanks for all the lovely compliments sorry we couldnt stop the rain in the afternoon and also to be complimented by the judges on the quality of the rings is very satisfying.
Congratulations to all of our class winners and to those who were placed, from Special Pre-Beginners to Championship C, and good luck for the rest of the season to everyone who entered.
I think we are so lucky to have such a giving community in Scotland as most shows up here cannot go ahead without the help of other clubs on the day of the event. Thank you all again; we need to support one another to keep our shows going.
So the work will start again soon, planning for next year as the cycle continues..
See you all next year on Sunday 2nd of September 2018 when our Ticket judges are Kathy Russell & Carole Patrick.
Anne Marie

Thank you to everyone who contributed to another lovely show. It was lovely to see such a relaxed atmosphere around the Showground. As you say, we are so lucky up here as everyone is happy to lend a hand - all that is needed is a request and whatever is required is attended to. Well done everyone.  (GoldenGirls) 5/9/2017 19:37:53

Thank you to everyone involved in any way with the Show. It was lovely to see such a relaxed atmosphere around the Showground. As you say, we are very lucky up here because if anything is needed all that is required is a quick request and it is attended to. Lets keep it that way! Once again well done everyone.   (GoldenGirls) 5/9/2017 19:41:16

Lichfield show secretaries report   (apachearrow) 5/9/2017 12:49:18

Lichfield and district show secretaries report.

This was our first attempt at running Lichfield show and luckily everything went well and we had no disasters! Ok, the weather could have been a little better on Sundaywe will remember to get the sun dance started earlier next year! 😉The atmosphere around the show was lovely both days and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves, which is what it's all about!

Thank you to Carol from CSJ for your sponsorship and to our other trade stands for supporting our show.

Our venue looked lovely when we turned up and the groundsmen worked hard all weekend, emptying our bins and keeping the place tidy. We are very lucky to have such a nice venue and we are grateful that everyone who attended left the area so clean. We changed back to a hot lunch this year and our lovely ladies, Sue and Jenny from Sandwell farm did a fabulous job. We had a lot of very positive feedback from judges, which was great.

We are extremely lucky that Lichfield has so many experienced club members who have worked extremely hard and made our job far easier. From the organisation beforehand, to planning and marking the rings, to the shopping, to the set up and break down, to car parking, to serving lunch and manning the marqueeeveryone knew what needed doing and just got on with it, meaning we didn't have to worry about any of it. I won't mention everyone by name as I am likely to miss someone out, but you all know who you are and thank you all for all of your help.

A huge THANK YOU has to go to our chief steward, first aider, to all of our judges, stewards, scoreboarders, scent decoys and to our caravan wardens and stay teams. Without you all, the show couldn't run and we hope you all had a great weekend. We still have some vacancies for judges, should anyone want to sample our hospitality!

Thank you to our all of competitors for their entries and we hope you all enjoyed your weekend. Huge congratulations to our ticket winners, Geraldine Steadman and Caroline Ely and to our YKC winners, who qualified for Crufts. Good luck to you all on that green carpet.

Our dates for 2018 are 1st and 2nd September so we hope to see you all next year!

Tracey and Annegret.

Well done girls. Job extremely efficiently completed.  (jessica) 5/9/2017 15:45:41

Ray Tinson  (REMMIE) 4/9/2017 16:49:55

Such sad news, a lovely man who I met for the first time several years ago when we used to attend the Dot and Ian training week each year. Always smiling with a great sense of humour. Much sympathy to Maureen and his family. x

Ray Tinson  (Pamflet) 4/9/2017 14:6:56

Woburn & District DTC is sad to announce that their Chairman, Ray Tinson has passed away. In 1984 Ray together with some other like-minded people founded the Club and he has been an active and valuable member since then. He has been a Committee Member from the formation of the Club and has held the post of Chairman for the past decade or more. He has competed with a number of dogs over the years having his share of success; competing in C at one time. Ray supported the sport of Obedience by judging and stewarding when he was younger and more able to do so. He was very caring and loving towards his dogs, treating them with an ease and natural manner to which they responded. He was a dearly loved friend of many in the Club for over thirty years and will be sorely missed by us all.
Our thoughts are with his wife Maureen and their three children at this time. The funeral arrangements will be announced in due course.

Pamela Fleet
Secretary of Woburn & District DTC.

I am so sorry. Richard Asplin  (prizehound) 4/9/2017 16:6:4

So very sad to hear Ray has passed away, he was such a nice man, R.I.P. Ray.

Cheltenham show   (HAGO) 30/8/2017 15:9:23

Cheltenham show
Well thats it for another year .Many thanks to all the Judges, Stewards , club members and non members who gave up their day to make the show possible. Fortunately the weather was very kind to us this year which always makes for a good day. Pet Needs were again in attendance and kindly donated the trophies to the winners who also received a goodie bag from our sponsor this year Platinum UK dog food.
This year we had a few changes as we were able to use the school rooms so instead of going over to the pub for lunch we decided to try and do the catering ourselves I say ourselves again a massive thanks to Veronica who not only catered for all the judges etc but also managed to work her dog in two classes and get placed in both. So to the people who cant take five minutes out of their day to help whether its in the stay ring or on a scoreboard try working a dog and catering for 70 !!!.
After last years successful Special class ring we decided to have one again this year and again it was very well supported with Claire Vicky and Glenis working non stop throughout the day and receiving rave reviews. I believe the final total raised was 140.10 . Many thanks ladies I hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as everyone that came in to your ring.
Many thanks again to Rob Bint who again manned the training ring every time I looked over the queues were there. Which reflected in the 110.60 that used raised through the day fantastic.
The tombola is always a crowd puller and always manages to raise money this year the total was 197.90 . Thanks to Ann and Maria for running it.
In total we managed to raise 498.60. Which always goes to local animal shelters. So thank you also to the catering bus who kindly donated 50.00 so to anyone who bought a ticket had some training , bought a coffee or took on temptation alley a huge thank you.
Congratulations to all our winners and runners up we hope everyone who attended had a fabulous day and a productive day with your dog.
We look forward to seeing you again next year
Emma Galbraith
Show Manager

Well done Emma and co for another fab show! Looking forward to next year already!!  (PennyKH) 31/8/2017 23:57:36

Super show as always, thanks to Emma and everyone else who made it possible, and such a success
  (Wizzpop) 1/9/2017 1:48:26



Clare and I just love organising this show!!!!

The weather fairies were really kind to us, in fact a little too kind as it got quite warm in the afternoon, warm enough to reduce some of the stay times. Thanks to our judges Sue Robinson, Carey Holah, Rita Holland, Kim Ford and not forgetting Chris Milner who stood in for Enid Diploock after she broke her ankle. Also thanks to their ring stewards, scoreboarders and all the stay stewards who volunteered during the morning under the watchful eye of Jim Nokes.

As usual our ladies in the kitchen laid on the most fantastic lunch menu with a groaning table of wonderful food and fantastic desserts. I think they assume that Gordon Ramsey is going to drop in and they are on Masterchef Dog Show!

The TWO training rings were manned by Sue Plunkett, Donna Bastin, Karen Harrison and Chrissie Skelly with Howard Plunkett keeping them in line (well thats what he told me). I cant thank them enough for giving up their day to help competitors and day visitors with their training in a show environment together with a full set of stays in the stay ring after all the official stays were finished.

Our chosen charity this year is Macmillan. The training ring made 176.00, the tombola made 123.00 and the puzzle sale raised 31.50 meaning we have a fantastic 330.50 to donate. A special mention to Ciaran our tombola enforcer who hijacked everyone on their way to the toilet! Think you might see him on Dragons Den in the future.

We were let down at the last minute by our usual competitor caterers what a pain! Well that was what I thought until we found a new caterer. What a godsend! Jackies Foods was simply brilliant. Clean, courteous, overflowing rolls and sandwiches at reasonable rates. Gluten free rolls and even a vegan chilli! They have agreed to do our show in May too so dont have breakfast before you come!

Finally my thanks go to the entire Chesvale Team who work tirelessly on Saturday and Sunday to make this show such a pleasure and to all the competitors, many of whom expressed their thanks to us in organising the show for them.

See you on May 6th 2018 . put it in the diary.

Changes on Wednesday  (ObedienceUK) 14/8/2017 20:38:28

The ObUK website has been hit now a few times by hackers, and although peoples passwords are not openly being displayed on the site, a determined hacker could get hold of them.

Its been suggested to me that I should hold the passwords as a hashed character string (via an algorithm), and hence the site (and me) would not know your password.

This means that the hacker could not retrieve the password from the site.

However, this does mean that I cant send you your password if you forget it (I would not have it). But I would do my best to reset it for you if requested (e.g. if you forget it).

To this end Ill be doing the necessary changes to the site on Wednesday 16th August. The site will go down for a short period whilst I make the changes, but once back up again you should not see any differences. (You still use your username and password to login.)

Thanks to Mike Aubury for pointing me in the right direction to enable me to do the coding changes. As he said to me, if the hackers are determined to break into the site they will find a way, but this is a necessary step.

I know people are also concerned about email addresses being taken from the site. These are readily available on messages on the forums, and the Userlist, so we need to discuss if these should be removed which I currently have not planned to do.

Implemented this morning.

Hopefully you will see no change.

However from this moment I know no ones password except my own.

If you've forgotten your password, you can ask me to issue you with a temporary password. (Logging in with the temporary password will force you to change it.)  (ObedienceUK) 16/8/2017 14:7:16

John Enright  (ObedienceUK) 14/8/2017 13:40:40

It is with a sad heart that I have to announce the death of John Enright an absolute gent who with his wife Julie had in recent years helped me on the Discover Dogs stand both having abundant knowledge in their breeds and the Obedience world. I had known John for years he will be greatly missed by many always ready for a chat and to pass his help and knowledge onto anyone who wanted it. Born on January 1st 1929 a birth date I remember because my Nan was also born on this day. John was a navy man who had been married before and had a son Martin. He met Julie his present wife when they both worked for the ambulance service. John always had an interesting tale to tell. Condolences to Julie and Martin and family may you rest in peace John.

Note: Julie and family wish to thank everyone for their cards and condolences. The Funeral Service will take place at 12 noon on the 29th August Pitsea and Basildon Crematorium - Church Road- Bowers Gifford SS13 2HG. All welcome and after at The Gun Public House SS13 2DU

Judges for York 2018  (Hannah) 14/8/2017 11:59:7

Hi all,
York has a fantastic new venue for next year so are hoping our show will be huge again!
As a pre-beginner handler myself I find it incredibly hard in my role as Show Secretary to find judges as I don't know many people so thought after 2 years of struggling I'd try a new tact.....would anyone like to volunteer their judging services please?
Sunday 19th August 2018 - Pre-Beg - C plus ABC judges required.

Lichfield and District change of judge.   (apachearrow) 14/8/2017 10:53:32

Ykc  (lexi) 6/8/2017 20:20:25

I think it's really sad the lack of YKC classes at shows! Yes the entries maybe
Small but surely shouldn't we be encouraging the kids? Come on show secs it's not exactly
A liar of extra work!

Should read load of extra work!   (lexi) 6/8/2017 20:23:0

Maybe its not a lot of extra work but when you add up the costs, judges and stewards meals, expenses, rosettes and trophy for the winner then it makes a difference when only small classes. For some clubs extra expense when already losing money.  (robz) 8/8/2017 10:43:39
