At Manchester our judge was Robin Searle (last judged us at Blackpool in 2014) and he had drawn an entry of 35 Keesies with just 4 absentees. We were scheduled to be first in the ring with a 9.00am start; bur unfortunately due to Robin arriving late, we didn’t actually start until 9.40am, but once started proceedings went smoothly & quickly and it was all done and dusted by 11.30am
