The Border Collie Convention 2012

The Midlands BCC was delighted to host the second Border Collie Convention on 5th May 2012.

The event was once again a tremendous success thanks to the speakers & the committee who all worked hard to produce the event. The format was slightly different from the 1st Convention, all delegates attending all talks, the speakers following on from one another in a single large room.

We were informed, educated and entertained by speakers Ross Green and Jo Ratcliffe, Breed Specialists talking on the illustrated Breed Standard, Kathie Kinton, Breed Specialist and Chair of the Pastoral Breeds Health Foundation, who brought us all up to date on health matters within the breed and finally well-known Gundog Specialist Carole Coode, who gave us her very popular talk on the practical aspects of breeding litters.

As with the previous Convention, the day was rounded off with a lively Q & A session, with all 4 speakers on a panel chaired by Bob Tunnicliff. The event was hailed as a huge success, with positive feedback both on the day & via the internet & delegates enthusing about both seminars and hospitality.
