      After discussions with several of the Racing Fraternity, both in the Lurcher and Whippet world, it has been suggested that this summer all racing at our Dog Shows should be recorded on the Finishing line by video camera. 
      What are your views please.

      The Mid and East Antrim Christmas Dog Show Sunday 16thDecember 18.
      The festive season had arrived in full swing, and when it came to a little jollification and some me time, the Mid and East Antrim Christmas Dog Show was the place to be  Sunday 16thDecember 18. This first time Christmas Dog Show was a great success from start to finish,  and was a welcome break from the trials and tribulations of the Christmas Razzmatazz.
      Although it was icy cold Christmassy weather, the good men and women of the canine world, came out in strength for a day of  festivities and showing, and they were not disappointed. 
      Denver Mc Meekin was there with some very pipping hot home made Game soup, Game Stew, Sausages, Burgers and Tea. So very tasty and nobody went home hungary.
      As we all know Christmas is a very happy time, but it also can be a very sad and lonesome time for some people. This festive day out can help bring cheer into our lives, and put a smile back on our faces again, if only for a day. 
      Showing commenced at approximately 12.30.
      Here are the Overall Results from the Show
      *Childrens Handling Class
      Lilly Thompson  with Chico
      ***Overall Champion Puppy
      Adam with Rio
      ***Overall Champion Whippet 
      Lisa Dumigan with Frankie
      ***Overall Champion Lurcher  
      David Mc Crory with Striker
       ***Overall Champion Terrier  
       Darren Crawford with Jill
       ***Overall Champion and Best in Show  2018***
      Darren Crawford with Jill
      David Mc Crory with Striker
      ***Congratulations to both men and all above winners***
      As usual the raffle brought a flurry of excitement around the ring as punter after punter won some really good prizes. 
      And Finally, many thanks to the judges on the day. 
      Whippets/Mark Mc Callion
      Lurchers/ Breandan Coleman
      Terriers/ John Barry
      Childrens Handling Class - Tracy Gill.
      Judging is not an easy remit at any time, but a job well done by all.
      None of this would be possible without the hard work and organization of Chontelle Mc Meekin and Mark Mc Callion and their back up team.  Hard work and sleepless nights come into the equation here. Your show was a credit to your impeccable organisation and attention to detail, and was a resounding success.  I look forward to more of the same in 2019.
       And Finally, Finally, may I take this opportunity on behalf of John and myself to wish all our friends in the Hunting, Lamping and Canine world in Ireland/ England/ Scotland and Wales and further afield :
      A very Happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year, and God willing we will meet up with you all again in 2019.
