I compiled these tables of previous prize winners at the Orkney shows from old show reports in The Orcadian, and Orkney Today. They probably contain errors. If you spot any errors Id be grateful if you could let me know by emailing shows@scarth.net. You can download these tables from http://www.scarth.net/shows. Im constantly adding to this site, so check back occasionally to see if there is anything new. Id like to add photos of prize winners to the site, and Id appreciate it if anyone with any suitable photos got in touch. Robert Scarth, Birsay, August 12, 2007

The interbreed prizes on oer from 2006 are very dierent from the prizes for 2005 and prior years.
