Reggie presents her report on whether members can show their dogs or not at SAM shows. She has contacted various clubs to see what their rules are. It is about 50- 50 for clubs who allow members to show versus those who do not. Discussion on the fact that people may not want to join SAM because they
cannot show at August and January shows, and these shows are sometimes
the only majors for specific breeds such as terriers. We have also lost some members who wish to show at our August and January shows and who are prevented by SAM standing rules. Vandra makes a motion that SAM members be allowed to show their dogs at SAM shows. She clarifies her motion that the standing rules should be changed to allow dogs owned by club members to be shown but not by club members. Nancy seconds the motion. Voting is 6 in favor and 5 opposed. Motion is carried but does not affect the January 2006 show.

Jan motions that a committee should be appointed to craft the wording for guidelines on members showing their dogs at SAM shows. Patty seconds. The committee will consist of Patty Hull, Vandra Huber, and Reggie Gausman.

The meeting was adjourned at 5:12 p.m. for delicious turkey and trimmings
prepared by Bo and Doug (and accompanied by the wonderful side dishes made by members).
