As chair of the conformation judges training committee and on behalf of the committee members, I would personally like to extend a sincere thanks to all who have contributed to the success of our training scheme here in Victoria through the difficult times of Covid.
I would like to acknowledge the wonderful exhibitors who are always willing to offer their time and assistance in so many different ways especially, supplying dogs for their practical exams and other learning opportunities. You are the reason that new judges keep coming through and you keep our sport alive. I must let you know that you are dearly appreciated from all of us here in the dog world.
An example of this was over the weekend of 27, 28 and 29 December 2021. With early starts, we ran a number of assessments with numerous candidates, some successful in gaining their respective licence. Again, a huge thank you for making this possible especially over the Christmas and new year period.
At this time, the CJC is planning a ‘final plunge’ in an attempt to get through every other 2021 practical application. We are hoping to pull this together very soon.
In due course, all group leaders will be approaching you once again to make dogs available so we can assemble breed and mini group classes. We acknowledge the huge effort that this involves for everyone. If you are able to be involved or are interested in helping us, please contact myself at firstname.lastname@example.org. The conformation judges committee and trainees will be forever grateful.
