The Christmas party was held at the Crab Cracker this year and was a fun, relaxing evening with all of the serving and clean up left for some one that was not a Club member. A very good thing! Dinner was excel-lent and made more so by good company. The annual Christmas steal-a-present was also very enjoyable with Patty reciting the rules, all two of them, for those of us that could not remember. Lots of very nice gifts exchanged hands, some of them more than once.
Please do not forget the Judge’s Dinner, Friday, 11 January, at the Best Western in Puyallup. This is always a very enjoyable evening, in a comfortable setting, with delicious food and stimulating conversation with our judges. Most of the judges have traveled a long distance to be with us and it is always a pleasure to greet them in a relaxed manner the evening before our show. Please RSVP to Muriel, if you haven’t already.
If anyone would like to volunteer to help with the show, and has not already done so, please contact Jan, Rusty or myself. There is always more than enough work on the day of the show and more hands helping makes things go much smoother.
Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas and a safe, Happy New Year! Can’t wait to see what surprises AKC has in store for us in 2008.
