Sunday 10th July -  Thank you everyone


A big thank you to everyone who helped to make our show such a great success,  judges, ring parties, committee and caterers plus all the trade stands and all the amazing competitors.

We have a few items of lost property.  A nice Aigle jacket, a dog toy tuggie with a milk liner on it, and a small mat or blanket with dog paw prints on it.  If you think they're yours please contact Pat May.  (mrsyardbroom@gmail.com)

Our next outdoor show will be next July but we have several events planned before then including our fun day.  (see below)

Cornwall Agility Club AGM

Many thanks to all those who attended the AGM on Saturday 19th March.  The meeting was a great success with lots of ideas to take forward.  The club is looking forward to another busy year and we welcome any comments and suggestions for club activities.   Is there anything you would like us to do or is there anything we can do better?

Here are some of the main points of the meeting. 

Club membership fees are to remain the same.
We will be looking at dates for a club fun day and BBQ.
We are also looking at bringing in trainers once a month for Bodelva.
All the committee members remain the same.  (We must like it or be gluttons for something.)
The full minutes can be found here.

 

July Show

The schedule for our July show is available now.  You can find it on the events page.

 

Agility League winner is our own Sharon Neal

 


Well done to Sharon Neal and Bella, overall large dog winners in the  of the Kernow Winter Series

Sharon says,

'Bella was a fantastic girl, league winner grade 3-4, then went and won the final, she is grade 3-4 champion, also 2x3rds and a 5th.'

 

 

 

Kamal Fernandez

Please note our training day with Kamal Fernandez is now open to non-members. We have a small handful of spaces available:

9.30 - 11.30 for pups (with what pups have booked in at the moment we can be flexible here) and
13.30 - 15.00 for adult dogs

Please let Kim know if you would like to book a working space, or would like to come along and spectate any of the sessions.

New Kennel Club regulations

A new lower height option for agility jumps is being introduced by the Kennel Club, effective from 1st July 2016, which will allow agility shows to include a lower height jump for each competition size.  The full regulations can be found here.

At the committee meeting held on 22nd January Cornwall Agility Club decided to introduce the new Kennel Club heights at the match in November 2016. We discussed the new rules at length and we also discussed the possibility of introducing them at our July show. The committee agreed unanimously that this would involve such a lot of work at short notice that it wouldn't be practical, however we're looking forward to giving the new heights a trial at our November match.
