Below are corrections to the May Minutes as amended:
Jean Patty will check and see if we have insurance coverage when club members drive judges to and from shows in their own cars. Bo brought up a concern about the charge for parking at the hotel.
Dee said the Hotel might put
some of our club members in another hotel that is Marriott owned because there may not be enough double rooms for exhibitors overflow double rooms, if necessary, will be sent to the Residence Inn next door. The rate is the same. Dee was given agreement by consensus of the club to approve the Marriott contract. Judges' dinner is August 25th, 2012 at 6:00 pm.
January 2013 show: Jan reported that we are going back with the Holiday Inn
hotel in Kent as the host hotel.
AKC Delegate: Bo reviewed why the proposal did not pass on the groups' realignmnet. Reserve Winners at a National Specialty (if entry is double a 5 point major in the area where the show is held) the reserve winner will receive a 3 point major, will be voted on in June.
Benevolence: Dee introduced Michelle Christiansen. She needs volunteers for a pool of conformation/handling instructors to teach the 4-H youth. Signups were passed out. Dee also asked that our club support the 4-H club by providing short leads that are needed for obedience training. She was given approval
