I would like to wish all our club members, family and friends a wonderful 2008 in which everyone has an opportunity to achieve their dreams and aspirations. I believe that this will be a year in which our club grows in strength and reaches new milestones with our Saint Bernard dogs.
We once again held a bumper show weekend, which took place at the end of March. We secured the services of specialist FCI qualified Saint Bernard judges. For the Saint Bernard Championship show, multiple world champion and international champion breeder, Mrs. Christine Wiederkehr from Switzerland, and for the Saint Bernard Trophy show hosted by the Witwatersrand KC, the President of the Saint Bernard club of Portugal, Mr. Carlos da Silva, also a Saint Bernard Breeder of many years. The Saints at the Transvaal Midlands KC, was judged by Mrs. Ringstrom from Canada.
The shows were pleasant, providing a positive experience for both dogs and owners. We had a wonderful entry of 44 saints at the Championship show and 32 at the Trophy show. Both shows were critic shows and with the wonderful support of my committee, each exhibitor was able to take home a printed critic after the show.
The prizes were sponsored by MONTEGO FOODS and we thank them for their generous support!!
The Kruger Park trip was done in conjunction with Wits and Midlands committee. a large group of 18 people, 3 combis, not to mention the trailers!! made their way to Mopani rest camp. An amazing time was had by all!! Thank you everyone for you support throughout the year.
