THE ANNUAL RUN-OFF
The Run Off is usually an annual event in early December – the main element of the evening is a Match, run as follows:-
A judge is specially appointed in advance, the assembled dogs are noted and organised into puppies and adults, Dogs and Bitches – so that each dog competes with another dog within the same category (puppy, adult, etc) on a knockout basis.
The major difference with this event is that the competition is based on Handling.
At the halfway point we break off for FREE refreshments – 2016 saw several tables groaning from the vast quantity of food – sandwiches, pies, etc cakes and so on. There were two cakes, one for humans decorated with the NW logo and another for the dogs, courtesy of Vicky Hewitt.
Fancy dress is discretionary – dog and humans.
At the end of the night we have two winners – Best Adult Handler and Best Puppy Handler
During the course of the year the Club Secretary keeps a record of the placings at the end of each Training Class.
At the Run-off these are toted up and we end up with the top Adult Handler and Top Puppy Handler for the entire year – these awards are handed out at the Run-off.
This is a well attended great night out and it even gives you a chance to hand out your Christmas Cards – the 2018 Run-off is on Tuesday 4th December
