  Firstly I would like to thank the committee for giving me the honour to judge this prestige show plus all the volunteers that make this super show possible especially my two stewards who did an excellent job for me then not forgetting all the exhibitors that entered under me with many quality exhibits of which I found their presentation to be excellent.
