 Kelso 2015 by Club Chairman George Wilson 
"What a wonderful time we had at our Kelso 2015 weekend which was a huge success with
an extremely good turnout of participants as well as lots of visitors and spectators plus there
were more than 30 carts in attendance.  It was great to spend such an enjoyable time with
friends old and new, some who had travelled from all corners of the UK to be with us; thank
you to everyone who makes our 'weekend' the event it has evolved into and to each and every
one of you who helps us and supports our Club's events. 


"We'll be doing it all again at Kelso 2016
so make a note in your diary that all roads lead to Kelso for the first weekend of August next
year and we can guarantee our Club committee will all be hoping to see you all again and 
be ready to welcome you."

From Bruce & Jean Hellingsworth
"We would like to thank George, Agnes and
the rest of the Scottish Club committee for again putting on a
splendid weekend event at Kelso. The weather leading up to the event presented a
massive problem for them but this was soon sorted out and new places to camp
were soon found. We are always greeted with a warm welcome and this sets us up
for the weekend. The opening parade for the champ show is always special for us
carters proving one of the many highlights. The evening event again was great
and what's more the weather all weekend was with us.  
Thanks again and hope to see you next year."

From Mark & Julie Wakeland
"Once again, hearty congratulations on an excellent event -
well organised, well run and inevitably, well attended.
I know it must have been a bit fraught in the lead up with the
state of the ground, but the new layout, albeit born out of
necessity, worked fine - dare I say it - even better than usual?
Anyway, another great weekend, looking forward to next year."

From Elaine Spalding
"Yet another great week-end. Just want to say Thank you to all the 
committee for their hard work, despite the weather and ground conditions. 
Bernie Bash was splendid as usual.
Although Cinders is getting on and doesn't do much we still
enjoyed watching both days and she loved her Carting at
the start of each day.
Thank You again, See you next year."

Your organisational skills are the best !
Thank you once again to you and all your committee.
Yours truly
Hilary and John & Molly and Susie - our bmd's"

From Philippa Green

"Dear George, Agnes & all the Hardworking Committee,
WOW what a FAB Championship weekend it was, well worth the
£200 Fuel bill and driving though the night on the way up.
We loved the location of the camping, which was brilliant
for showing on the Saturday and for the Sunday Fun Day,
 we'd love it if it was to be a permanent change? 
The Bernie stall was beyond amazing and all the extra little
goodies and prizes on offer and welcome bag, make this event
beyond super.  Because of all your amazing hard work, you
make this event one that no one wants to miss, it's just
fantastic! and this year super weather too.  Thank you for
making the 2015 Championship weekend another wonderful event
to remember.
with love from us all here at Pasturegreen in Norfolk,
Mervyn, Philippa, Chloe & Abbie, 8 Bernese
and Lily the Lhasa Apso."

From Pauline McAllister

"Hi to all Committee
Well that's Kelso over for another year and thankfully the weather
was kind to us for a change - it's been a while! (with the exception
I suppose of about 20 minutes towards the end of Saturday's Show).
Anyway, we would just like to say a big well done to the committee
for the smooth running of the weekend as always.
We really want to say though that we loved the layout of the camping
and show rings this year - even it was changed last minute due to
weather conditions prior to everyones arrival. We think it made you
feel more part of the show.
Kids had a ball as usual, think they will need a week to catch up on sleep!
Here's to Kelso 2016!
Pauline, Graham, Carlie & Jack McAllister."
