Dee Carlson reported on her inquiry to AKC asking for clarification on the “10 ft” rule regarding the use of canopies at ring-side. There seems to be no specific AKC rule, but the Club can set the rules. After discussion, it was decided to refer this to Bo to present a Recommendation to the Board for the August 2009 show.
No AKC Delegate Report

Rusty Kingery will send out a 'special edition' of the Barker reprinting the article that appeared in Dog News about the show this past August.
Dee Carlson presented a suggestion for a 'points' award program for club members who participate in activities with the points redeemable for various prizes. This is an effort to bolster meeting attendance. Dee will develop a proposal to present to the general Membership. Also under discussion, whether the 2nd Wednesday is the best date for a meeting, and if it was mandated in the Constitution. Beverly y found the section which reads, “meetings of the Club shall be held each month within the greater Eastside area at such hour and place a may be designated by the Board. “ This gives us some leeway, should we decide a more convenient day for the membership.
Meeting adjourned at 8:45 PM
