AKC Delegate—Bo Gloster
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.

Huber, and Reggie Gausman.
