PHOTO COMPETITION

The NRSF Annual Approved Show and Sale will be held at Melton Mowbray Auction Mart on Friday 11 and Saturday 12 September 2015. CATALOGUE AVAILABLE CLICK HERE.

 

 

 

The North Ronaldsay Fellowship is honoured. Past President Maurice and Dawn Duce have offered a trophy and a venue for a new competition. A Champion of Champions competition. This is a great opportunity to get some of the best Ronnies in the country all in the same place at the same time, to help promote the breed. It is to be an annual event, with the opportunity to move around the country each year. All the breed champions, that have won at selected shows in the course of the season will be eligible to compete in the final. If, at a qualifying show, the breed champion has already qualified, then the reserve is eligible to go forward instead. The final is to be held at Newbury show on the 20th September. The qualifiers will be expected to compete at Newbury in the breed classes, so those classes will be stiff competition. The qualifying shows are: Welsh spring Festival, Herts county show, Stafford County, Bath and West show, Trawden show, RBST Northern Young Handlers Workshop, Cheshire show, Newbury show, New Forest Show. This competition is administered by Darren Cassie - please send results to him.

 

 

 

 

This year we are running a photograph competition, with a view to producing a calendar featuring the best entries. If there is a suitable entry in the ‘winter’ category, then we shall also produce Christmas cards, which will then be available to buy. The categories will be:

Ewe Ram

Lambs In the field

Winter At play

All entries should be digital photos and at least 1MB and should be emailed to helen.brewis@btinternet.com

In submitting an entry, you are agreeing for the Fellowship to use your photograph for the calendar/Christmas cards, all photographers will be acknowledged.

In order to get the calendar out in good time, the competition will close at the end of July, so you don’t have much time. So get snapping or search through your albums for winter shots.

WELCOME

THANK YOU
