THE SOUTHERN IRISH TERRIER SOCIETY MEMBERS LIMITED SHOW
DECEMBER 4TH 2004 - JUDGE MR PAUL NETHERWOOD (NEDAVIR)
The Committee certainly pulled the stops out for this show. When they arrived they found no power or heating. Eventually after driving home in a round trip of two hours everything was restored. On arriving I would not have known anything had happened to them. A credit to their Society and breed for getting the show going. So a big thank-you for the Committee for the pleasure of judging the show. A thank you to my Steward and to the exhibitors for all the hard work in preparing their charges, for my appointment.
