The Midland Game Fair

Recommended Posts

Anyone off to the Midland this year? I'm thinking of having a look round on Sunday, looks like the weather is going to be good as well.

Gona give it a miss this year... bit disappointed last year, overpriced and a bit of a car boot sale really.

I think they are all the same really hence why I normally just go to the Midland now. I think it's more of a working mans show than 'The Game Fair' and others with terriers and lurchers rather than hot tubs and summer houses, providing you can dodge the gypos!

Crap

Haha! Me and my old man came to the conclusion whilst driving home that going every year is not necessary! You know you've been too many times when you don't need the site map and unless you want a Realtree jacket (which I think 90% of stands were selling) perhaps going every 3 years is enough...

Them game fairs haven't been the same in a long time all made for the toffs in my eyes or wanna bes I used to love the old days when the terrier and lurcher sections were in the centre you could have the crack there it's a shame but that's the way it is these days

      Unfortunately this will be the last one, as the East of England ground have decided its no longer profitable
      and will not be continuing after this year with the Autumn show, so hope people will come along and show their support.
       
       
      Sunday 8th October
       
      At:
       
      East of England Showground
      Peterborough
      PE2 6XE
       
      Simulated Coursing for Lurchers, followed by Straight Racing Overs and Unders for Lurchers, and Whippet and Terrier Racing.
       
      Booking in from 8.00am
       
       
      Open Showing from approx 12.30 with classes for Lurchers and Terriers will be back again this year, with rosettes and trophies.
       
       
      (The day will also feature the British Supreme Lurcher Championship organised by Pat Quant at 10.30am)
       
      There'll also be Long Jump and other things to keep you occupied all day!
       
      Stalls, food etc too.
       
      A good fun day out, well run, and all profits go to support Lurcher Link - lurcher specialist rescue.
