Kelso 2017 30th Anniversary Weekend 

5th and 6th August 2017

Thank you to everyone who came and joined in

the celebration of our club's 30th anniversary.

We appreciate the kind comments you have sent to us

" Kelso champ show 2017;  We would like to thank all the BMDC Scotland
commitee for such a wonderful show again this year. We travel from Surrey every
year to this event and have to say it's the best Bernese show in the country,
right from when you arrive there is a warm welcome and friendly atmosphere.
Taking part in the opening parade makes you so proud to be owned by a Bernese,
this year was extra special as it was the 30th anniversary for the club and the
carters matched this with 30 carts and 1 piper to open the show, a sight not
seen at any other Bernese shows, in fact Kelso is the best attended show to see
Bernese and carters in full splendor. The evening get together was a right laugh
as per normal and the auction went down very well, the bidding was very strong
for some must have items, I think we can all agree we had a good time. All too
soon it's Monday and it's all over again for another year, we just wish the
other clubs would take note and try and copy what has to be the Bernese event of
the year, a champ show combined with a working and fun day over a two days makes
for a great weekend away. Thanks once again for all your hard work.

"Dear Agnes & George,
Sorry we didn't manage to say good-bye to you Sunday, all ended up
being a bit of a rush for us!  But just wanted to say THANK YOU 
very much for organising, planning, managing, setting up, dismantling
and everything else that is involved in such a fantastic weekend at Kelso,
an extra special 30th year for the club, and to all of your merry band of
helpers.  The weather was better than forecast, shame the rain couldn't have
held off for another couple of hours on Sunday eh?  
Being back in Bonnie Scotland was fantastic for us, both before, during and
after the event, didn't want to leave of course! 
Very best wishes & thanks again.
Jenny, Nigel, Benson & Misty."

All the best

"Hello Agnes & George, 
Just a few words to say thank you for another great weekend
put on by the club, we really appreciate the hard work that goes on behind
the scenes by yourselves and your hard working committee.
The stall has lots of lovely goodies, every one is so friendly, the
rucksack gift is great, the food at the Bernie Bash was lovely 
and even the rain over the two days didn't put a
damper on things. Wishing the club another 30 successful years.
All the best Cathy & James Connelly."


"Hi George and Agnes,
Thank you for the lovely card which we passed on to all
the carters. We had 30 carts for a 30th anniversary, wow!
You do really make us feel as though we are part of one
big family bought together with one common denominator
and that is the love and passion we have for all our Bernese.
Where else would you now see a display like this that certainly
brings out the hankerchiefs, as Tom would say it makes you
feel proud to be Scottish.
We also have to say a big thank you to Murray and his 'pipes'
the display would never be the same without him. We have lost
count how many years now we have been coming, Tom
reckons 14 years, that explains why the journey now seems
to get longer and longer, but while we are physically fit and
able, try stopping us making the journey up to be with our Scottish
friends. So give yourselves and the rest of the committee a big
pat on the back for another fantastic weekend in Kelso
and from us, Hip, Hip, Hooray! until next year.
Tom and Wendy Murray"
