I would like to extend a very large THANK YOU to Rusty for all the work that she put into publishing two issues of the Barker with all of the show results and pictures. It is easy to forget, at times, that all of the work that is performed in the name of the Club is done by volunteers. The amount of effort that Rusty puts into the Barker, month after month, is not small and is greatly appreciated!
The Nominating Committee has once again been formed and we are in the year end process of electing new officers and Board members for our Club. Nominations for Club officers and Board members will be accepted from the floor at our 14 November meeting. Please check the Standing Rules for eligibility of anyone that you would like to nominate. Club officers and Board members for 2008 will be elected at our 12 December meeting, prior to the start of our Christmas party at the Crab Cracker in Kirkland. Look for more information on our Christmas party in the next issue of the Barker.
Preparations for our 12 January 2008 show are going well. The Premium List will soon go to the printer. Muriel is attempting to wrap up all of the loose ends for our judges stay at the Best Western, along with planning the Judge’s Welcome Banquet (to be held at the Best Western, Friday evening, 11 January). We have started to line up ring stewards. Rusty, our Chief Ring Steward, would appreciate hearing from anyone that would like to steward in the breed rings. If you are interested in stewarding for Obedience and Rally rings, please contact me. The Show Chair, Jan Leikam, says all is well.
