Junior Judging competition 2005 Bendigo ASBA
submitted by Bruce Hamlin
A very successful Junior Judging competition was held at the
Bendigo Sheep & Wool Show on Sunday, 17th July.
In 2005 the competition was changed to 3 different age groups, which spread
the entrants more evenly.
13 years & under had 31 entrants,
14-15 years had 25 entrants
16 years & over had 36 entrants making a total of 92 competitors.
Thank you to the Corriedale breeders who supplied the eight sheep on the day,
the Assessing Overjudges - Jim Gough & Geoff Risbey, the Handler Overjudges -
Brenda Venters & Richard Higgins, the Microphone speaking Overjudge - Judith
Nicolson, the all important "paperwork girls" - Bec Hunt, Bronwyn Ellis and
Judith Nicolson, the Timekeeper & Coordinator - Jim Venters and the MC/Score
calculator - Craig Turner. Without your imput and dedication this
competition would not happen.
A very special thank you to Peter & Marie Bake for sponsoring the prizes
given to the winner of each age section.
This competition has been an asset to the Corriedale Association, as several
colleges now have Corriedale studs. This is attributed to the dedicated
Corriedale members who support this education program.
