Committee reports:

August show - Dee asked if The Humane Society could sell their own merchandise at the show. Jan said she needed to find out exactly what they were going to sell. Jan said we have the contracts for 2011, 2012 and 2013. She reported that we have the grounds reserved for 2 extra days, Wednesday and Monday so if there is any club that would like to use these days for a match or specialty then they could.

Benevolence - Jan reported that Patty said we have no more interest income so we do not have any more money to give away currently.

AKC Delegate report - Bo reported that the delegate meeting has been changed to Sunday and Monday this month. There will also be a presentation meeting held on June 24th to realign some of the breeds. There is discussion of a new type of match called an Open Show which would open up the sport to new people. Championship points would not be earned at an Open Show and must not be attached to any dog show within 100 miles of it. Bo also reported that the Gazette no longer be a printed magazine, but will be available on the AKC website. The people who subscribe will receive Family Dog Magazine until the end of their subscription date. The AKC will have a puppy class 4-6 months at the August show on Saturday the 27th.
