There is enough to do when
organizing a show – finding judges and stewards, sorting out the venue, getting
enough help … but at least with our Obedience Show Service, you can just hand
over all your show entries and have your show paperwork taken care of for you.
For the fixed price of £425.00
(excluding postage costs) for 1 day Open/Championship Obedience Shows, or
£475.00 (excluding postage costs) for a 2 day show, we offer the following:
· Compilation of
catalogue from entry forms (which need not be pre-sorted), checking the classes
· Telephone calls
to handlers concerning entry queries
· Production of catalogues,
and printing and supply of 30 copies, in multiples of 4 pages, printed as an A5
· Accounts summary,
detailing those competitors who are under- or over-paid; plus total monies
· Catalogue Orders
· Offers of Help
Booking-in Sheets for each class
· Ring Number
Report - a list of new numbers in each class, in order to determine which ring
numbers are to be at each ringside.
printing and despatch of Running Orders
· Stay Times
summary, ordered by Class, and by Time
We require 3 weeks
following receipt of final entries, for processing and printing, and will then
ensure delivery of all documents by at least one week prior to the Show date. Delivery in person at Obedience shows can be
arranged if this is convenient to both parties.
Despatch of Running Orders
In order to reduce costs,
we are currently trialling an option of specifying on your schedule that
Running Orders will only be posted if specifically requested by competitors on
their entry forms (our Running Orders
will always be published online on the ObedienceUK website).
Alternatively, we can email
Running Orders to any competitors where an email address is provided or kept on
file, and only post to those who have not acknowledged receipt, or who have not
supplied an email address.
Where posted, postage
incurred will be charged in addition to the fixed fee. Wherever possible, 2nd Class post
will be used in order to minimise costs, but we reserve the right to use 1st
Class post if it is thought necessary.
If you would prefer to send the Running Orders yourself, then these can
be printed and supplied directly to you instead.
We do not currently offer
the following, although we may be able to source supplies on your behalf, if
given sufficient notice:
· Prize Cards
Please remember that you
will also need to produce any paperwork specific to your show, such as Camping
passes, Ring Plans etc.
· 30 copies of the
catalogue are included in the fixed price.
It will be assumed that we will supply 1 catalogue per judge, plus 2 for
your own use, plus any ordered by competitors.

I have competed in
obedience since 1998 and have judged at Open and Championship Obedience Shows since
2005. I have produced all of the above
documents for my own club’s Open show for more than 10 years, and can provide
samples on request. With this
background, I am very experienced in the intricacies of producing fair and impartial Running Orders, as well as producing all paperwork
required for a show within the timescales required.
Having been made redundant
twice in 2 years, I am keen to put my I.T. background to a more productive
use. Within Sussex Software Solutions,
we have more than 28 years I.T. experience including programming skills, in
depth testing experience, and a strong eye for detail, so you can be assured of
the very highest quality delivery.
Please do not hesitate to
get in touch if you would like any further information, to see samples, or to discuss
your requirements in more detail.
