WHISTLEY WOOFERS 2017 by Pete Garrard

This year’s Whistley Woofers weekend at Tim and Margaret's property at Pimlico, near Silverstone
was even bigger and better than the last one.

Caravans and campers started to arrive on the Wednesday, and by the weekend an assortment of
26 caravans, motorhomes and tents had filled up the mown area of the paddock, such that the cars
of day visitors had to be parked in the longer grass despite an even bigger area having been mown
than in previous years.

Thanks to the advance exposure on social media and a number of roadside signs, more local 
people than ever turned up with their dogs to participate in the fun dog show and have a go on the
fun obstacle course.

After 3 really hot days during the preceding week and a cool and windy day on the Saturday, Sunday
was just right, with warm sunshine interspersed with some cloudy spells to take some of the heat out
out of the day, although the warmth led to a much reduced entry for the calamity carting course this

On the Saturday evening Malcolm Dewick and his friend Rob treated us all to some musical
entertainment on the keyboard and guitar while the barbeque was busy all weekend and the sales
of ice cream did a roaring trade as well.

The results of the various classes follow and as a result of the class entry fees, auction, raffle,
tombola, barbeque and camping fees (thank you to Tim and Margaret, who donated all the fees for 
the camping) the total raised for Bernese Welfare was £2300, which was a stunning result. Well
done to everyone who contributed to this fantastic success.
