Thanks to everyone who came to our Christmas extravaganza show! What a way to end the year! We had a huge turnout, with some fantastic Christmas displays, and lots of effort put into best dressed rat and mouse (and person!), and even some delicious best rat-and-mouse-themed Christmas food. The enthusiasm was palpable, it was such a great atmosphere, and so good to see the club and community doing so well 🙂

We also had our Annual General Meeting, where we set a new Committee to take us through to 2014, and chatted about standards revisions, Royal Easter show planning, 2014 show dates and more. We’ll have the full minutes up on the website for everyone to read through ASAP.

For now, though, we need some input on our suggested show dates, as listed below. Can everyone please have a look through these, and if you have any issues with the dates, please email us at and let us know.

Proposed 2014 Show Dates:

  • February 1st
  • April show will be at the Royal Easter Show
  • June 7th
  • August 2nd
  • October 11th (1st Saturday of the month is school holidays)
  • November 29th (December is too hot for a show)

Thanks again for everyone’s support throughout 2013, it’s been a fantastic year for the club, and I hope all our members have thoroughly enjoyed themselves 🙂
