Kelmarsh Game & Country Fair

The weather has been really wet over the last few days and the forecast for today was for more rain, we decided yesterday that if the day started bright be would head off to the Kelmarsh Game & Country Fair. This is the first of the bigger game fairs of the year, but it is also the smallest.

The day started out bright so we set off, unfortunately we had an argument with the Sat Nav so it took us on the worst possible route, but at least Teresa and I can say that we have now both seen Nottingham City Centre.

The weather was ok, there were a couple of showers but no real rain, but the heavy rain of the last few days realy softened the ground and generated some pretty impressive mud, we left early but I am sure there would have been some entertainment watching some of the more unsuitable cars trying to get out of the car parks.

The show was really small, there was no Sporting Dogs Pavilion and no Gun Makers Row but still plenty to see, some good shooting and fishing competitions and plenty od scurries for the dogs.

I took a few pictures,
