Default Real London (SHC) Show - 8th September 2018

The Southern Hamster Club will be hosting the Hamster Section of The Real London Show on 9th September 2017 at Bracknell Leisure Centre.

This is part of a larger event where you will also see Guinea Pigs, Gerbils, Mice and Chinchillas on display and it is free to come and have a look around.

Link to Show Schedule: https://hamsters-uk.org/showdocument...london2018.pdf

The pet class at this event will be open to hamsters only. If you wish to bring your pet guinea pig or other rodent then the other sections of the show may have a pet class that you can enter.

Is anyone from HC planning on going to this show?
I am hoping to take Maestro for the pet class.

I will be there with four of Team Metallica. I’ll be stewarding for the Syrian Section.

This was a lovely show today. I took Maestro for the pet class.

Fluffagrams-what were the main shows results? Love to know.

I looked around at the guinea pigs. They dominate this show. Beautiful piggies galore.
Took a few photos of prize winners. I did not use flash in case this disturbed them so any piggie in a dark position or hiding under hay escaped me. So the photos follows, specially for all you HC'ers who love piggies.

First up though is Maestro's result with photos of him on his own thread!

There were just so many beautiful piggies that that I hardly knew which way to look. This just gives you an idea of some.

Well done Maestro! I am sure he is very proud of himself and it must have been a good experience for him being there. The guinea pigs are great - the one on the second photo looks so perfect he almost looks like a luxury toy!

Well done Coco and Maestro, I was very pleased to see you both do so well.

This is very much a guinea pig show however I think it was originally started as a cavy show and then at some point the other fancies were invited along but it’s nice to mix with the other fancies occasionally, particularly as many hamster exhibitors keep other species such as gerbils or guinea pigs too.

In terms of the main show, the Syrian Best in Show was won by Grantabrugge and the Syrian Reserve Best in Show by Bourne Valley. Both of the top dwarf placings went to Somershire Hamsters.

I missed having Matthew on my show team but most of the hamsters I took came home with a placing in their straight classes.

Captain Jack S. Cormes of Metallica
2nd Normal Chinese

Lilliput’s Charlotte May at Metallica
4th Normal Chinese

Lilliput’s Benjamin F. Pierce at Metallica
3rd Dominant Spot Chinese

Lord Alexander James Cormes of Metallica failed to impress and came home empty handed.

Thank you Fluffagrams. Interesting history of the show.
Well done to the Metallica team. Little Charlotte did well.
Lord Alexander James Cormes is still much admired here.
