Sammamish Kennel Club July Picnic
Marymoor Park, Redmond, WA
July 13th, 2011
President, Rusty Kingery called the meeting to order at 7:20pm. In attendance: Dave, Julia & Malynn Johns, Dee Carlson, Sandee Isaacson, Nancy Warfield, Jackie & Paul Blumenstetter, Dave & Rusty Kingery, Michelle Brown, Jan Leikam and guests Taylor & Jordyn Brown.
The minutes of the last meeting were approved as printed in the Barker.
President’s report: Rusty reported there will no longer be a paper printed AKC Gazette. It will be available on the website. There will be a new award and title for therapy dogs that they can hang at the end of their name. This is not an AKC award. It will be a therapy award that will cost money. Application forms for this award are available on the website. An AKC delegate asked at the AKC meeting since they are conducting business online if our clubs can do the same. AKC doesn’t mind but it depends on what the state law is concerning it. Patty Anderson will be asked to find out more information if we can do that. The AKC will also be voting on the Reserve Best In Show title on September 13th, 2011.
Treasurer’s report: none. Patty Anderson was out of the town.
Secretary’s report: Michelle brought a copy of the grounds map that Randy Brown printed for the August show. Any other future changes will be discussed on the Wednesday before the show when the grounds are staked out.
August show: there was nothing reported.
Standing Rules: Rusty requested that the members read the current revisions for the Standing Rules for approval hopefully in September.
Nominating Committee: to be determined in September.
New Business: Sandee Isaacson’s computer cannot accept PDF documents so she asked for them not to be sent in this format.
Next Meeting: September 14th, 2011.
Motion granted to adjourn the meeting at 7:36pm.
Michelle Brown, Secretary
