She has also assisted the Border Collie Club of QLD to organise the dog sports events at the 2016 4th Border Collie Nationals. In 2015 she decided to become an Agility Judge and has judged at many competitions locally and has travelled interstate for numerous judging appointments. She feels that judging is an incredible experience; being able to develop a course and then stand in the middle judging the skills and teamwork of the dogs and handlers. Moira has competed at the Royal Brisbane Show many times over the years with her own dogs and is now looking forward to judging at such a fabulous event where handlers can showcase their beautiful dogs across all the disciplines. She wishes all the best to everyone competing this year. Mr John Palmer (New South Wales) Judging: Racing Queensland – Greyhound Sweepstakes John Palmer has been showing dogs since 1975.
