With some lockdown restrictions lifted its great to see a MT favourite pastime starting back up….The Mooch!! There was at least 2 that took place last weekend, here’s the report from the Northern one….
Well today was our 1st post lockdown Northern Mooch and we sure picked a nice day for it!! 18 MT’s (and Todd of course) and their humans enjoyed a much welcomed mooch down the Mersey, the dogs were clearly happy to see each other and we all enjoyed seeing our friends and catching up too!! We stopped for a drink in a very busy Jackson’s boat, we had to settle for the field opposite the pub due to social distancing in place, before heading back to our cars. I know I speak for everyone when I say it was fantastic to do something normal with likeminded people!!! Looking forward to the next one!!!!
Susan O’boyle also organised on in Bewdley, will get some details from her for next weeks notes.
Looks like there’s a few spur of the moment mini mooches taking place in different parts of the country, after all only a Manchester knows how to really play with a Manchester!!
More planned in the weeks ahead so keep your eyes peeled for details on FB and of course the BMTC website, under the news/ events heading theres a link which will take you to the page for where the different areas mooches are organised.
The BMTC VSOF is in full swing now, with the fancy dress already judged, there were some very creative costumes, well done to the winners and everyone who took part!
The spring photo competition has finish and the summer one is now underway, some nice weather is forecast so get those cameras out and get snapping your pooches in the sun, some great ones the album already if you want to what others have taken.
Also underway is the MT’s got talent video competition, I’m sure theres a lot of your dogs that can do a trick or two for a snack, get them uploaded, theres prizes to be won!!!! Again head over to the VSOF FB page and have a look at the ones already on there, there are some very clever MT’s about.
I hope you’ve all been enjoying our ‘meet the committee’ daily post, always good to put a name to faces and hopefully you’ll know us when you see us around now, we’re a very friendly approachable bunch.
Over the coming weeks theres lots more to look forward to….
Autumn & winter photo competitions, sports video competition, online raffle & auction, quizzes and what about a virtual get-together too? Yes, coming soon, a BMTC Social by Zoom! All VSOF participants welcome. Bring a bottle, some nibbles (strictly for your own enjoyment) and join us for an evening of MT jollity, catch-ups and an All Things Dogs Trivia Quiz! Date and full details on their way soon … hope you can join us!
It looks like there’s still some champ shows going to go ahead in a couple of months (I’m sure Mark will keep us up to date with any changes) and hopefully there will also be some other activities allowed to restart soon.
Whatever you are doing, have a good week and stay safe.
