Conscious of the fact that we normally see a large number of the contributors to this site at the CLA Game Fair, with or without heads to measure, I thought that those with an interest may wish to know that, although disappointed at the cancellation of the Belvoir Castle show, the CIC UK Trophy Commission will be operating at the Moy Fair in Scotland on 3-5 Aug 12 and at the Midland Game Fair at Weston Park, Shropshire on 15/16 Sep 12.
If individuals can't wait for those shows to get a head measured, then please be assured that we all continue to welcome heads for measurement either by post or with the owner, in person. Contact details are, as usual, at www.cictrophy.com
We have also been invited to take part in the Deer Stalker's Fair being held at the Borders Union Agricultural Society Showground, Kelso on 23/24 Mar 13, (www.deerstalkingfair.co.uk) at which, in addition to providing a measuring service,we will be displaying a number of heads which we hope to enter into the CIC International Exhibition currently being planned for Budapest in May 2013.
If anyone who has a high scoring head, already measured by the CIC team, or who has such a head yet to be measured, and would like it to be exhibited at the Budapest exhibition, then we would be delighted to know. We have a remarkably good tale to tell about the quality of deer in the UK and this exhibition, the first to be run for many years, is a great chance to show off the quality of our deer and their management.
