AFFENPINSCHER GATHERING 14-16 July 2017
This year's affenpinscher gathering was the seventh and with the sixth unofficial show and again it was a success. This year there were a lot of people and many for the first time.
It all started Friday morning when they first arrived, this year people took the trip from Bergen and Haugesund in the west, from Troms in the north and some came from England to spend the weekend with us.
The Friday went to get everything in place and when the tent was up there was home-made pizza, the talk went and experiences were exchanged.
On Saturday morning some of the people here went to Vaaler and the show there, while the rest of us stayed at home and finished everything here. The kitchen people made freshly baked baguettes, waffles and cake with coffee / tea and soft drinks.
When the others came home we had a meeting that we had called for in connection with the creation of a new Affenpinscherklubb. An interim board was elected. Afterwards, there was a grooming course where many followed closely and tried out with experienced help present.
The activity committee, read Nina, had really been creative this year and came up with a lot of fun and at first the game kubb was plaid, the laughter sat loose and you can safely say it was a big success.
We grilled and enjoyed us all night and Nina had made a quiz where we again got the laughter muscles properly trained.
On Sunday we had our unofficial show with Oystein Eikeseth as judge of this year
