Puppy Of The Year, Cavalier Of The Year
& Veteran Of The Year 2016
Wroxall Abbey Estate
Birmingham Road, Wroxall, Warwickshire, CV35 7NB

Invites have been posted to all qualifiers and include an entry form with space for you to list your major wins. What a task – catching up with those that we didn’t have an address for because they are withheld from catalogues etc! Thank goodness for Facebook!

We hope that as many of you as possible will attend this event. It has a great atmosphere, is in a beautiful setting and has a lovely lunch. Just to entice you there are some super prizes on offer with £50 for the winner of each Match along with a Bottle of Champagne. Judge, Lucy Koster, has kindly offered a beautiful dog bed and Sheena Maclaine has offered the newly designed "Rosette display" (produced by John Whitman).

A bottle of wine is also up for grabs by the winner of the individual age groups for the puppies and on that note we am sorry if we have confused the folk who received invites for puppies that appeared too young – the age groups for the puppies are as previous years: Under 12 months; 12–18 months & Over 18 months. You only need to be sure that you have clearly written their date of birth as the computer will tell us which age group they fit into. There will be some puppies that are eligible for both Puppy & Cavalier of the Year (& possibly Veteran & Cavalier of Year), please check the entry form to make sure both are marked so that you have more than one chance on the day!

If you can’t attend but would like to advertise your Cavalier that qualified – £10 sees an advert in the catalogue – just to remind everyone who is missing!

We’ve tweaked the format so that each judge will have a chance to have hands-on something in each section – and you won’t know who is judge A, B or C until our President, Brian Townsend, has drawn their "initialled" ball out of the bowl so.....

PUPPY OF THE YEAR – The dogs will be judged by Judge A, the bitches by Judge B and the Puppy of the Year will be decided by Judge C.
Followed by VETERAN OF THE YEAR – The dogs will be judged by Judge C, the bitches by Judge A and Veteran of the Year will be decided by Judge B.
Finale – CAVALIER OF THE YEAR – The dogs will be judged by Judge B, the bitches by Judge C and the Cavalier of the Year will be decided by Judge A.

Capture the moment with a photo – TRACY MORGAN in attendance – get an early Year Book picture ready – lots of nice backdrops outside!

DON’T MISS IT – ENTRIES CLOSE MONDAY 22nd AUGUST and have to have been received by Friday 26th whatever the postmark due to the tight turn around for printing.
