Treasurer’s report: Jan reported in Patty’s absence. We are down $21,000 for expenses this year because of the site rental. A report was filed with Secretary.
August 2013 show- Bo reported all the trophies are barb-a-que oriented this year. He would like decorations, and a name to support that theme including a barb-a- que lunch or social hour. The Marriott is giving us a discount for rooms this year. All the judges contracts are in. Hospitality and transportation is going to be arranged by Barbara. Patty is taking care of the dinner. The premium list still needs to be approved. We need people to help for grounds lay out on Wednesday before the show. The dumpsters and port a potties are ordered. The canopies have been repaired. We need a list of signage for the grounds. We are meeting with the Fire Marshall before the show to get the new regulations squared away. Sue Cox will help coordinate in obedience.
August 2014 show- Bo discussed that we have not signed a new contract yet with Marymoor. He talked about the problems with holding it in Puyallup and getting other groups to hold their show with ours. We will have a better idea in August after the show to see how our finances are doing and see if we can stay at Marymoor or choose a cheaper site. Jan suggested that we work with Olympic Kennel Club and promote it as the back to school cluster because they have a lot of specialties. She also suggested Belle Vernon.
New Business: none.
Old Business: Laura and Bo are meeting on Monday regarding the Idea of a Face book page.
Next Meeting: July 10th, 2013 6pm at the July Picnic at Marymoor Park.
