19th November 2006  - Many congratulations to Mrs. Y. Hedges and Mrs Z. Robinson who's dog Leger Kings Gambit By Ramblix was awarded
the Best in Show in a unanimous decision by judges Alan Muir (Dogs) and Eunice Pocknell (Bitches).  The services of referee Bruce Nicolls (Sarleen)

Rotherstaff.

Many thanks to Alan, Eunice and Bruce for their services, and congratulations to all exhibitors who were placed at today's show.  To see all the placings,

The show was hampered yet again by the lack of a PA System, despite one having been promised, and the committee are working hard to remedy
this for the future.

The judges' write-ups will be added to the web page when they are received by the Downlands.

has been updated with his comments.


Veklorra on a Hy is June 2006 Best In Show

25th June 2006  - Well done and congratulations to Lorraine Brown and Kevin Harper, whose Dog Veklorra on a Hy was awarded best
in show at The Downlands June 2006 Open Show.  Referee Ann Gatenby made the tricky decision as bitch judge John Frankham and
dog judge Steve Robinsom were unable to agree.  Despite the impending England match, the show was relatively well-attended, and those
spectating saw Mr. & Mrs. S.C. Hopkins' dog Trufflestaff Toffee Truffle J.W. reserve best in show and best opposite sex.  The Hopkins'
made it two bests as their dog Trufflestaff Kid Gloves was judged best puppy in show.

The show finished just before three, which hopefully gave most of the exhibitors and spectators time to get home to watch England's
victory over Ecuador.

Well done to all exhibitors and their dogs who were placed today, and many thanks to all who attended for making the show the success
that it was.

Full details of all placings can be found on our show results page, along with the judges' critiques when they are received.

 

2006 Annual General Meeting

5th March 2006  - The 2006 Annual General Meeting of the Downlands Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club was held at Petersfield Community Centre
today.  A disappointing turn out of only 18 members heard end-of-year reports from the Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer.   All those committee
members who stood down were re-elected.

The judges for the 2008 shows were selected - pending acceptance from those judges - and membership fees for 2007 are unchanged.
Lorraine Brown and Jamie Mace were jointly presented the Perleen Shield (for the dog or bitch gaining most points at shows in a year).

Our thanks to those members who took the time and trouble to come and have a say in how their club is run.

February 2006 Judge's Critiques Added

18th February 2006  - Thanks to Ken Meneer and Steve Bradder for getting their judge's write-ups to the Downlands so quickly.  These have now
been added to the Show Results Page.

12th February 2006  - Well done and congratulations to Mr. Barren and Miss Guiver as their dog Dazzling White Lad by Gularrens
 was awarded best in show at The Downlands February 2006 Open Show.  Referee Mary Coble was not required as both Steve Bradder
(Dogs) and Ken Meneer (Bitches) were unanimous in their decisions.  The well-attended show saw M. Pritchard's bitch
Foxstaff Mystic Magic win reserve best in show and best opposite sex.  Miss L. Sullivans bitch Current Romance was judged best
puppy in show.
As always, congratulations to all exhibitors and their dogs who were placed today, and our thanks to all who attended for making the
show the success that it was.
