Stopping over?

The PRA FUNd Raising Companion Show (on July 17th) may only be one day but the usual invitation is extended for people to come for the weekend and some caravans and tents, plus their owners of course, have already booked in. The hotel that some have stayed at previously has changed hands so Supreme Inns is what you need to look for now.

This invitation is just not for Glen of Imaal Terrier people-all and everybody are welcome.

A reminder.


Saturday 12th June 2010 at Shenstone Village Hall, Barnes Road, Shenstone, Nr Lichfield, Staffs WS14 0LT

The AGM commences at 11am.
Since notice of the meeting and a proposed agenda appeared in GOITA’s Spring newsletter, additional agenda items and rule changes have been submitted and so, in accordance with the club rules, the finalised agenda will be sent out to all members. If you haven’t yet received the new agenda, you can contact Anne – Email: or Tel: 01777 703417 – to request one.
This year, there are agenda items that should provide some interesting and lively debate. As stated in the Editorial of the Spring newsletter, “It is important that members feel they are part of the club and that their input is important …”. The AGM is the members’ meeting; it would be nice to see a few more ordinary members attending and being a part of the decision-making process on matters affecting the future of our wonderful breed. Please do go along! There’s lunch and the open show to look forward to afterwards!

The Open Show opens at 1pm and judging will commence at 2pm. The judge is Pat Chadwick.
There will be refreshments, a raffle (for which contributions would be much appreciated!), superb rosettes and specials from Royal Canin.
