Judge : Steve Jones
This critique reflects the judge's opinion
based on what they saw on the day of the show.

I would like to thank the officers and committee for inviting me to judge at their show, and my two hard working stewards who kept everything running smoothly, and to all the exhibitors for a lovely entry, especially those who braved the icy cold weather to get to the show. I thoroughly enjoyed judging our lovely breed and got to judge some real quality exhibits.
