AGM & 40th Anniversary Social Weekend 2014 Report - Carden Park Hotel - Chester - 7th & 8th November
If you missed it - you missed out!
The AGM & Social weekend at Carden Park was an amazing event. Over 200 friends celebrated the Society’s 40th Anniversary in style. The programme included a casino night experience and of course the Texel challenge - never have so many laughed at.... so many
With wellie wanging, haggis chucking, problem solving, duck herding, giant skiing and a Segway course the participants and spectators had a great time.
The winners of the challenge were the red team consisting of...
Henry Gamble, John Yates, Andy Barr, Roy Hughes, Peter Mitchell, Steve Smith, Helen Smith, Steve McLean, Aubrey Andrews and Rodney Blackhall, it is also worth pointing out they also received the award for the most disruptive, disobedient team of the day! Well done to all that took part.
We said goodbye to three long serving Directors and hello to three new ones, the winner of the Anniversary National Flock Competition was announced by Judge Brian MacTaggart and his lovely wife Janet, congratulations go to Northern Ireland representatives the John Foster & family, Springhill Texels.
The Sire of the year trophy was presented to Pat & Barry Farrell, who came over from EIRE to receive the award in person - Congratulations Pat & Barry and of course Oberstown Usain Bolt!
