Mail was given to Verlynn after review.

Treasure report: Jan stated that we are in the black for the year will break even on our Aug 06 show. Treasurer report filed with the secretary.

Board report: Dee reported that the board had moved to donate $1000.00 to the Snohomish County Sheriff department to help aide in finding a new search and rescue dog. She explained that they had lost one of their K-9 dogs.

Show report: Jan reported our Jan 07 show premium will be out very shortly. Please everyone note the EARLY closing date of 12/20/06. In fact all of the Western Washington Cluster will have the same early closing. Jan will have signs at the Whidbey Island Kennel club show next weekend informing the exhibitors as well. Jan asked Patty Hull if she would step in as treasurer for the Jan 07 show. This will free up Jan as she is our show chair.

August 07 Show report: Bo Gloster has emailed all the specialty clubs from our 8-06 show asking for their input; most all came back with compliments. Bo also went over in his email changes that we are already implementing for
our next show. Dee asked Bo if he would directly contact the Terv club regarding their feed back. Dee Carlson has contacted AKC about combining all obedience specialties for the 8 -07 show. This would pull in more entries and save money for all of the clubs. Cliff Hewitt is co-show chair for the Terrier specialty club. Bo asked if he would get in contact with the Swedish
judge and finalize her contract.

Bo announced the judges committee for the August 2008 will be Cliff Hewitt, Patty Hull and Bo Gloster as chair.
