As discussed in our last committee meeting regarding training of members, especially for the younger generation, to become judges we have included many inexperienced members in our judging team to give them first hand experience in judging.
The chief judge will explain in detail what to look for in every section before judging and voting and in this manner hands-on experience can be an invaluable tool to mould our future judges into first class judges.

Our show drew a lot of visitors and we had a couple from New Zealand, Christina and Raymond Green, who were very impressed with the show. They have been in Ipoh for more than a week and promised to return for another visit.

The show ended at 3pm after the prize giving.
