Bernese News EXTRA 14th August 2018


Apologies for the weather. Fortunately I had two very efficient stewards, Anne and Kim who had a good sense of humour as did the two ladies who slipped and fell in the very wet indoor part of the ring.

I was impressed with the two Veteran winners who showed the audience what they were capable of doing. The two CC winners were wonderful to see together in the final run off.
