The East Anglian Game & Country Fair 2008

 

Editorial

 

This year’s East Anglian Game & Country Fair hosted, ‘in association with the EDP Norfolk Magazine’, promises to have something for the whole family, with a variety of new attractions on offer.

 

The annual two day event will be held again, at the Norfolk Showground, on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th April 2008.

 

The show (which attracts over 40,000 visitors) will be celebrating its fifth year of success and we would like to invite you to come and join in all the fun and excitement this April.

 

The Essex Dog Display Team will make an eagerly awaited return to the show. Their canine display is extremely exciting and educational. These rescue dogs have no fear as they jump through hoops of fire and negotiate ramps and jumps of all sizes. They have made several TV appearances including on Blue Peter, Crufts and The Generation Game. 

 

John Bidwell’s Off the Hip Shooting exhibition (he has one the World Clay Pigeon Shooting Championships 5 times) will undoubtedly draw the crowds again this Spring, with his amazing display from an expert shot!

 

The High Lodge team will also be hosting the Clay shoot area where a 40 bird re-entry competition will take place over the two days with men’s, ladies and junior’s sections, so if you have never had a go at Clay Shooting or would like some tuition from his vastly experienced team then you can also visit one of his instruction stands at the clay shoot area, entry is open to all.

 

New for 2008 is World Fly Casting Champion sensation Hywel Morgan, who delivers a highly informative and entertaining display, showing his remarkable talent for multi-rod casting, a highlight to any angling enthusiast’s day! The HM Prison Norwich drug dogs will be at the show for the first time doing displays to demonstrate the great work they do in the community.

 

A new event has started in the UK, Dock Dogs which originated in the United States they will be launching their sport in the UK at our Show in April, since its launch in America in 2000, DockDogs  has received huge success. Combining peoples’ love of competition with the love of their dogs, it is a very accessible sport – anyone with a dog and a ball can join in, hence its fast growth and massive popularity.

 

The handler throws a ball/toy for the dog who races along a dock or jetty and leaps into a 100ft x 40ft pool with 25,000 gallons of water in to retrieve the toy a sight not to be missed! The dog with the longest jump is the winner, to registrar your dog to enter visit www.eastmidlandsjettydogs.co.uk.

 

Some of the old favourites include, The Tigers Free Fall Parachute Team who will once again take to the skies to amaze visitors as they plummet from an aircraft smoke trailing towards the ground at 120mph.

 

Meirion Owen will put on his amusing display; you will be amazed at the wisdom of the Border Collies and the comical daring of the Indian Runner Ducks. Ye Olde Retail Falconry display brings the ancient art of falconry to the modern age with a comprehensive and thrilling presentation guaranteed to entertain the audience, suitable for all ages, everyone will love it and want to be involved. There will be Horse Logging Displays, Pigeon Decoying, and the hilarious and extremely popular Sheep Show.
