Dear all,

 

Just a word about yesterday’s 2017 Copdock show.

 

I want to pass on my thanks to all those that were chosen and displayed / helped out at the 2017 Copdock Show, (or I think as Rebecca said “ CopDICK Show “).

 

I was really grateful to everyone who put themselves out by being there / visiting, and those erecting (yes another dirty word) and dismantling the backdrop etc for the stand.

 

 

I was really glad to have been persuaded to camp overnight as the evening was terrific, we had so much laughter, fun and general ribbing of each other, plus watching some people who had just a little too much to drink,  that I will definitely be doing it again next year.

 

For those that didn’t manage to get to the show, why not come on the Saturday and camp overnight next year, like a couple of members did (even though they were not chosen to display). You will not be disappointed.

 

The Sunday was a bit quieter I believe than in previous years due to the inclement (posh word) weather. But none the less a great time was had by all.

 

This year it was decided to staff the stand with just 3 – 4 members, so as not to overwhelm the public, (someone last year felt intimidated, how could they be by us unassuming pussy cats!!!) this gave other members the opportunity to stroll around the show for longer.

 

Can I also pass my special thanks to our Chairman and Rika who provided the food and teas / coffees throughout the weekend. We were extremely well looked after. I would further like to thank Andy who stepped in to help transport the backdrop and stand miscellaneous items, very much appreciated.

 

Not much more to waffle on about, except, roll on next year. I haven’t had so much fun for a long time…. Yeah, I know, I must get out more!!!!

 

 

Grum
