Bradford Championship Show 2014 attracted a good
entry of 699. It proved to be another good year for the Agouti winning
all 3 Marked & Ticked sections and hence being 3 of the 9 exhibits
up for BIS. However the 36 year wait for an Agouti BIS continued when
Andrew Sparkes Brindle Aby 5-8 boar took the honours under BIS Judge
David Oulton, just pipping Steve Davies' Silver Agouti U/5 boar into the
Runners Up spot.

Best in Show
Steve Davies' Golden adult boar.
There was an excellent entry of 56 which included a terrific entry of 26 AOC's, the most seen for many years.
SHOW OF THE YEAR!
Real London was a real cracker and proved as hoped the show of the year with a fantastic entry of 889 Cavies, hopefully that magic 1000 isn't too far away.
Also shown were mice, hamsters & gerbils with a lovely Chinchilla display. The Show also attracted many International visitors (with some exhibiting) hope you return next year.
Judge Simon Neesam
year saw a fantastic record entry of 92, the most since the 90 at the
Millenium Show. The entry was made of YSS 40; Support 49; Unrecognised
Real London, Simon and all the 20 exhibitors must be thanked in helping make this possible.
Best in Show: Steve Davies' Lemon sow.
We would like to welcome new Club Members: Tina Fredslund (Denmark); Michele Tricker (Essex)
