GRCA National 2005 - Gettysburg

Page 1

The photographs are not all as sharp as I would like. Using a hand held, 10x zoom, when the bleachers you are sitting on are shaking to the stomping and cheering of the crowd, isn't always conducive to sharp imagery!! There are 3 pages of pictures, this is page 1

For the non Americans:-
The conformation classes were judged over 5 days, Tuesday - Saturday inclusive.
There are 4 "sets" of conformation classes;
Sweepstakes for puppies up to 18 months and Veterans 8 and over where you can win real money!! Win or lose here you  still compete as a new unbeaten dog in later classes under a different judge;
Regular Classes, which exclude Veterans and Champions. This is the group of classes where the points towards a title are won by each best of sex;
Non-Regular Classes which include Veteran, Working and Field Trial classes:
The  Best of Breed Class, where all Champions compete. This class also includes the non regular class winners and the two best of sex from the regular classes.
