The Italian Newfoundland Club, the CIT – Club Italiano del Terranova – held their club show on 3rd and 4th of May, in Spresiano, at the lakeside of the Lago Le Bandie. Spresiano is in North-East Italy, about 40 kilometres from Venice. At the lakeside was a hotel and sports centre where the judges and a few exhibitors were accommodated.
Peggy & I had a very nice invitation to judge at a CAC National Group 1 & Group 8 show in the town of Lohja, Finland on the 8th of June, 2014.The show was held on a lakeside in the town and with glorious weather and setting the whole event was first class.
We stayed in the Rantasipty Kylpyla Spa Hotel in a lovely wooded area of Siuntion, the facilities, food and the hotel staff were all to a very high standard it was a perfect week end.
Peggy was to judge the Shetland Sheepdogs and the Lancashire Heelers, however, because of the number allowed by the Finnish KC to judge per day, the entry was well over, so the Shetland Sheepdog males and the Lancashire Heelers were allocated to other judges.
Judge’s report by Michael Gadsby
MY first visit to Malta and most certainly not my last!! I loved the island and the friendly, outgoing nature of the Maltese people... this really well run show was a pleasure to judge, with many top class exhibits on offer.
Frank Borg managed the show with his typical relaxed and friendly manner, he and the other Frank Borg stewarded ensuring all ran smoothly (yes, they do have two of them!) It was super judging outdoors on a blissfully warm evening. I would like to thank all the exhibitors for accepting my decisions in a sporting manner.
