Speakers were Ross Green ("Fayken"), Toni Jackson ("Elbereth"), Rachel Spencer ("Tobermoray"), Jo Rattcliffe ("Grandver"), Penny Foster-Cooper ("Sheltysham"), Kathleen Burnell ("Fieldbank") und Felix Cosme ("Beagold"). At the end of the day there was an open discussion. All in all a very interesting day for Border Collie lovers. Topics were breeding, showing and judging the Border Collie. I do hope that they will have another convention next year. Thank you for a super organization.
