Our judges did a great job at the Perth Royal Show my thanks to Debbie Hyde, Karren McCluskey and Paul Skewes, you made my life so easy, thanks guys.

There were 20 entries but we had four withdrawals (including mine) so 16 routines for our judges to mark.

HTM Intermediate
O CH Daheim Lucky Star ADM JDM ADO JDO with Amanda Houston a routine that really got the audience going as Amanda and Ben slowly appeared from behind the Gravestone!! their music was Thriller this was their TITLE 174.9 points

DWDF Starters
eight entries with five qualifiers
First and second were very close and the win went to Barcoo Up To Trix CD SPD AD JDX HTMS with Vicki Long to Lollipop and you should have seen the arena, weaving poles of giant candy sticks, a go out pole that was a giant lollipop and a step of licorice allsort it was great well done 155.6 points

Very talented lady and dogs.

It was a great evening and the whole event was watched by a couple of RAS councilors who were spun out and loved it. One of them stayed until the end even though he was due at a VIP function.
