Would just like to say what a fantastic time we all had, despite the rain.  As a first timer at the Jersey European Agility Festival I thought the show was well organised, it was great to see competitors from all over Europe.  Everyone was so friendly and happy to give you agility tips, (much needed and appreciated in my case), so I’m not sure how you can improve! Please pass on my thanks to everyone involved as I know a lot of time and effort is always put into events like this, I'm already looking forward to next years event.
Take care and many thanks

Dear Andre
Firstly thank you for organising the show. I had the most marvellous time. I was a little jaded by agility in the UK, the lack of support no one clapping at good rounds no one turning up at prize giving etc. So coming to Jersey where everyone was friendly, clapped and supported each other was brilliant. This was due to the relaxed friendly atmosphere of a well run and organised show. Please say thank you to all your helpers. We made some lovely new friends from Europe.
Kind Regards
GS

14 May 2014

Hi Andre just wanted to say thanks to you, Chris and Sally for such a great show. I really enjoyed it and it was extremely well run. At prize giving the people behind me were saying what a great show it was and how they weren't going to tell anybody else in the UK so that they could keep it to themselves!!!!!!! Thank you and well done to the three of you x

Andre, Sally & Team.
Thanks for all your hard work in the festival, it’s much appreciated.
We really enjoyed the week, with an added bonus of good weather thrown in.
The on-site venue was good, clean, with all concerned very friendly, and enjoyable meals.
We met many old friends from the past (9 years since last there) and made many more new.
Every one is so friendly and relaxed, but still competitive.
The sponsors must also be given a mention, as they were extremely generous in their contribution to the show.
Thanks once again.

Bonjour Andre,
J'ai eu la chance de participé au tournoi d'agility dog de Jersey cette année. Je souhaitai simplement te remercier toi et l'équipe d'organisation.

Ma fille qui m'accompagnait, souhaite absolument que nous y retournions l'année prochaine. Je ne sais pas encore si cela sera possible mais si c'est le cas, nous reviendrons avec grand plaisir.Peut être à bientôt sur les parcours français.Cordialement
