Greyhound Rescue Fife Dog Show 2010.

Welcome to our 3rd Greyhound Rescue Fife Dog Show that will take place indoors on Sunday the 2nd May at Caldwell’s farm near Collessie in Fife. The organiser’s hope that this family friendly event will help raise awareness of the plight of greyhounds in a relaxed atmosphere and allow people not only the opportunity to talk about their dogs but show them as well. Although the show will have a predominantly greyhound slant to it, some classes will be open to other breeds as well. If you do not have a dog then this is the ideal opportunity to come along and see these majestic dogs “strut” their stuff and learn more about them and expel many of the myths.
Prices
Entry to this whole day event costs only £3pp with accompanying kids going free (16 and under). Although people can pay on the day, buying an advanced ticket will give you entry to our free prize draw, which will take place at the half way stage. These tickets can be purchased at any of the Fife greyhound dog walks or from Jimmy/Celia and others in the Fife area (look out for the posters). This year to ensure that everybody entering the show hall has paid we will be issuing wristbands at the front door as you come in, so please wear at all times during the event otherwise you may be asked to pay again !! On the day entry to each class will cost £1 per dog (payable on entry to the ring) with the exception of “best family of dogs” which costs £1.50 for 2 or more dogs (any breed) and the final which is free.
Venue facilities
Caldwell’s farm, Collessie, By Ladybank, Fife, KY15 7UY. Click here for map. Show will take place indoors in a sandy horse-riding arena. There are car parking and toilet facilities. We also have the use of the adjacent field for anybody wanting to walk their dogs during the day. As it is a working farm owners are asked to be in control of their dogs at all times and clean up any mess they may make. We will also have hot/cold drinks, sandwiches, crisps and confectionery for sale. GRF Merchandise, home baking, book sale, kids lucky dip, tombola and Wii ski jumping competition will also be available on the day, along with several commercial companies who will have various dog treats for sale on the day.
