    Default Fun Day 2010

    The Coventry Cavalier Fun Day 2010 will take place on Saturday 24 April. Offers of help on the day, donations for the raffle, donations towards rosettes and suggestions for improving on last year's first effort warmly welcomed! As last year, there will be a Companion Dog Show with obedience (and this year including a fancy dress class), photo competition, raffle, have-a-go agility, and information table.

    Look forward to seeing you there!

    Kate, Oliver and Aled

    Great something to look forward to.
    I really enjoyed last year. Hope we have good weather like last year. Will we have a wedding going on again I wonder?

    As the Judge last year I had a wonderful time.

    I will try and be there this year as an exhibitor, although it may be with little fluffies, rather than my cavaliers.

    Kate, you are a wonderful organiser. I'm sure it will be a great day.

    Margaret did a great job judging last year! This year's judge for the breed and novelty classes will be Sylvia Lymer of the Lymrey Cavaliers - one of the top breeders who scans all her breeding stock and talks openly about her old champion stud dog who has (had?) SM. I've chatted to Sylvia at shows and at the Midland club scanning days at Chestergates and bless her she agreed immediately when I asked her to judge. Betty Wilson, Midland Club committee member with a long experience of doing obedience with Cavaliers, will be looking after the two obedience classes - please do have a go at these, the lowest class will be on-lead and dead simple!

    The proceeds this year will go to Dr McGonnell's Foetal Tissue research at the Royal Veterinary College, which is coming up with some important data about the lack of communication between brain and skull growth in Cavaliers.

    Fingers crossed for good weather - it was so nice to sit on the grass in the sunshine last year. But we do have alternative indoor accommodation!

    Just a little boost to remind everyone about this event on Saturday next (see below for more details).

    Have crossposted it on several other Forums and had a few responses indicating that people will try to get there, so hope to be able to meet some new Cavvie Crazies as well as CT folk.

    If you do come - I'll be the one running the teddy tombola, so do come and say hello (and buy a ticket!)

    I think Kate is still looking for someone to help serve tea/coffee and also someone who could help people try the mini agility. Apparently the person who brings the equipment cannot now stay to help demonstrate it - only a couple of tiny jumps, a small tunnel and some weaving poles (if I remember right from last year).

    Hi Marie-Anne


    Would it be possible for some kind person to purchase 10 strips of raffle tickets
    on my behalf and I can either send somebody a personnel cheque or just make
    a straight donation prior through paypal ,and if by any chance I win a prize either raffle it again (and I will buy another 10 tickets then ) or auction it or of course sell it and put the proceeds towards the funday funds .
