EFG Open Show 2019

Schedules for the 2019 EFG Open Show went out to members with the last newsletter. It’s being discovered, in the nicest way, that efficiency isn’t working with some people as they can’t remember where they have put them. That’s okay we’re all human. The schedule is online on the EFG website and hard copies are available from Jean Rogers. There will also be schedules at National Terrier.

The show is on April 27th and Colin Powell will be judging the 12 classes of Glen of Imaal Terriers. The show is held in conjunction with Birmingham Gundog & Terrier so it’s possible to do two shows in one day. Matt Smith is the Glen judge and as Matt is a gamekeeper an actual chance to get the opinion of a working man.

The AGM is also to be held here so the chance to do three things with just one car journey. Closing date for the EFG Open Show is April 18th and Liz will be at national Terrier to take entries. The usual generous sponsorship (£10 Best In Show etc.) has been donated.

EFG Open Show entry.

The EFG Open Show on April 22nd (next Sunday) will see an entry of 30 Glen of Imaal Terriers for judge Frank Kane. It’s a bigger entry than both Crufts and National Terrier and the largest Open Show number for quite a long time. So if you want to meet the breed Sports Connexion, Leamington Road, Ryton On Dunsmore, Coventry, CV8 3FL will be a good place to visit. Judging starts at 9.30 and-up to yet-it’s a great weather forecast!

List time

“When you do the list for Crufts remember to…..” “Will there be a list for……” “Don’t forget to put on the list about….”

Okay so in no particular order here’s THE LIST as asked for by Glen of Imaal Terrier people.

  • Remember your passes
  • Is the favourite lead packed?
  • Some comfy shoes
  • Headache tablets
  • Get an EFG Open Show Schedule from Jean. If you’d prefer one posting email her today
  • Remember Glens are 2nd in the ring so you don’t have to leave your bed at midnight.
  • We WILL be doing a Bring & Share. Finger food is best so it can be eaten as folk walk around, gossip and recover from being in the ring. Dips and things are nice but they need spoons and such and past experience indicates they just get left as, frankly, people can’t really be bothered.
  • Breed Club subscriptions (in a sealed envelope please with your name on the front)
  • Something to tie onto the car aerial. After the end of a long day all lines of cars look the same.
  • The map in the car in case of overrunning road works or stupidity by the satnav
  • Money for the shopping. Whatever you think before hand you will need it. So to assist with the assault here’s a list of everybody there
