Once again, you were spoiled for choice for weekend activities in Majorca, which ranged from golf and cycling to dog shows, fairs and cultural visits. You had to get up early to see the Dog Show at the Pueblo Español, where 200 dogs of 70 breeds were entered for the Balearic championship. The judges had a hard time picking the winners which were Yanero, an alsation, Boenif, a golden retriever and Hatrin, a gold boxer in the puppy category; Tuli, a shorthaired chihuahua, Nora, a golden boxer and Cuatro, an alsation, took the first three prizes in young dogs (up to 18 months), while Dakota, a golden boxer, was the winner in the open class (adults over 18 months), followed by Pepi, a mini snauzer, and Jamie, an Irish setter. Golf enthusiasts had a choice between the three day Princess Birgitta tournament at the Santa Ponsa golf course, and the tournament in aid of La Sonrisa Médica charity at Bendinat. For the really energetic, there was the cycle tour up the Puig Major, the island's highest mountain, which attracted more than 300 cyclists. It was a 38 kilometre ride and two young men, one of whom was blind, completed it on a tandem. In Manacor, a record number of people visited the September fair, where there were four kilometres of stands. The fair was launched five years ago to boost trade, and it certainly achieved its purpose on Sunday as people rushed to buy. And in Palma, people continued to queue at the Council of Majorca headquarters in Calle Palau Reial for the second Open Doors day, eager to get a glimpse of the interior of the lovely building.
