Summer Rally & Dog Fun Day
The WSSCSW social get together and Dog Fun Day this year will be held at:
The Bridge Caravan Park and Camping Site, Dingestow, Monmouth, Gwent NP25 4DY
Saturday 18th to Sunday 19th July 2015
IF YOU HAVEN'T YET BOOKED YOUR CAMPING OR CARAVAN PITCH DO SO ASAP ON 01600 740241 - Quote "Welsh Springer" as a booking reference.
Some committee members will arrive at the campsite on Friday afternoon to start organising things for the weekend and to be there to welcome those arriving on Saturday.
As those camping or caravanning arrive on Saturday we'll greet them with a cuppa and later in the afternoon we'll arrange a mass dog walk - either locally or just down the road in Monmouth.
In the evening we will have a meal and drinks in the village hall followed by a dog themed quiz. (Food not yet decided upon but it will be charged for - and if you want alcoholic drinks please bring a bottle).
We will be running a Scurry all day, with training available for dogs and owners that have not done it before, and later on there will be a Final competition for fastest WSS and fastest any other breed.
Refreshments available all day.

Dog of the Day, President’s Choice, chosen from all dogs on the field throughout the day, not just showring.

There will be prizes and/or certificates for all the events.
Please remember that although all the events are held in a large field you should "pick up" after your dog at all times. Also, of course, your dog should be under control at all times - they are each your own responsibility.
