Open Show Update

Big apologies for the lateness of an update but I am putting the finishing touches to our schedule for our open show on Sunday 17th November at our new venue Whitwick in Leicestershire – the venue used in the past by Leicestershire Gundogs.

We have some of the breeds sponsored already but would be really grateful for exhibitors in Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla’s, Large Munsterlanders, Weimaraner’s and AV Import Register to consider donating prize money for Best of Breed (£10) and Best Puppy(£5).
