Diary of Events 2013 - 90th Anniversary Celebrations

2013 is the 90th Anniversary of the formation of the Field Spaniel Society and the Committee and Officers are intending to celebrate this anniversary with a number of events throughout the year. WELKS holds significant historical affection, with the Society having held AGM’s and Committee Meetings there in the past and it is coincidental that Gundog day at the 2013 Show is as near to the actual anniversary date itself, which was the 25th April 1923.

To commence the Society’s 90th Anniversary celebrations in 2013 we are running a special “90th Anniversary” Open Show at WELKS on Friday 26th April 2013. This special Show will commence early afternoon after the judging of Field Spaniels at WELKS has been completed and we have had some time to participate in “celebration” food and drink. We are delighted to confirm that Liz Fanshawe has accepted our invitation to judge the Show, Liz having been one of the original members of the Society when it reformed back in 1969, and there will be twelve classes held – Schedules are available

We want to encourage everyone to get in “CELEBRATION” mood as soon as possible. As mentioned before, further events are being planned throughout the year especially at our Championship Show in June, and the Open Show in November and, again, we shall keep you all informed of the details as soon as possible.
