Electronic Notification resolution originally voted on 13 June 2007 with yearly renewal voted on and passed July 9, 2008. Please see the minutes from 13 June 2007 for wording on the resolution.
Discussion regarding proposed AKC mixed breeds registration for inclusion in Companion events (Obedience, Rally, Tracking and Agility). Most agreed this sounds like AKC has already made a decision to do this and is looking for rubber stamp approval from the clubs in spite of many unanswered questions from the clubs and exhibitors.
An informal discussion was held regarding the feasability of holding Sammamish Kennel Club meetings once a quarter, rather than monthly. The idea is to make the meetings more of a social gathering. It was decided that further discussion is needed.
Meeting adjourned at 7:00 pm.
Jan Leikam for Verlynn Johns.
