Club News

Well there’s a week to go until the Curly Coated Retriever Club Championship Show and Fun Day, and we are looking forward to seeing everyone there.

Just to let you know, you are welcome to bring your own gazebos if you want to, to use as shade from the sun, and hopefully not shelter from the rain… Please do note however they must be pegged down and must not be too close to the ringside so as not to block anyone’s view of the show.

All donations towards the Raffle & Tombola will be gratefully received.

The CCR Club Shop will be open for business, there’s the launch of the new Curly Car Stickers…. The Coronation tea towels & bags will also be available, along with official club clothing, so don’t forget to get all your Curly merchandise…

BAD & A3 Seminar
Don’t forget we are holding a Breed Appreciation Day (BAD) on Saturday 23rd September 2023, at Chelford Village Hall, Knutsford Road, Chelford, Macclesfield, SK11 9AS. Contact Caron Chattwood, Breed Education Co-Ordinator, for more details.

Champ Shows

Windsor Championship Show, 29 June – 2 July 2023
Judge: Mr Frank Kane
1 July, Day 3 at Windsor was Gundog Day and there was an excellent entry 56/58. The Curlies were initially due to be judged by Breed Specialist, Ms Gill May. Unfortunately Gill had to withdraw from her appointment, we send our best wishes to Gill and hope to see her soon.
It was a very long day, but good weather and not too hot. Ofcourse you can see Windsor Castle from the showground, so it’s a lovely location.

Frank Kane found his Best of Breed in Maggie & Jerry Stephens’ Sh Ch Brightmeadow Never Say Die JW Sh. CM. Tarzan won his 40th Challenge Certificate. The full results can be found here on the Show Results page.
