September 2004 Barker
Minutes from the Last Meetings—June 9 & July 14, 2004



Wednesday June. 9,2004

We met at Marymoor Park at one of the covered sites that has a grill for BBQing. Attending were: Dee Carlson, Ken Carlson, Jan Leikam, Patty Hull, Karin Cartwright, Reggie Gausman, Muriel Clifford, Sue Lusa, Rusty Kingery and guest David Kingery.

Kudos to the cooks, Jan and Patty who did a great job on the hamburgers, and the dishes brought by the members that were there for the pot luck were all very tasty. After stuffing ourselves on the food, Dee called the meeting to order at 8:13 PM.

It was moved, 2nd and passed to accept the minutes as printed in the May/June Barker. The Treasurer’s Report was also approved.

Pres/Board report: Dee passed out a copy of the show site diagram and a copy of the Rules & Regulations of Marymoor for the show. 3C's will be able to drive in and park on the perimeter of the show grounds. Other than that, there will be no driving on the show grounds with the exception of the set up and tear down crews.

The Web site at this time is up and running on its old location. There have been no bills for the site, and we don't know who to pay. However, Justin Wilaby who is taking over our Web page will set up a new site for us . He will do all maintenance and update as needed. Dee will set up a 5 year contract with him setting a fee for being Web master.

Jan Show: Money and apps are ready to send in.

With no objections the $500.00 was accepted by consensus ] Of the $500.00, 50% earmarked for cancer research and 50 percent for epilepsy. Search and Rescue--$250.00 For that the recommendation was for the NW Disaster Search Dogs as they are a 501 {c} corp. For a total of $3300.00. It was moved and 2nd [Rusty & Reggie] and approved that the donations be made.

Reggie reported publicity was sent to the Seattle Times Summer Guide for the August Show. Dee will send Reggie, Martha Norwalk's address so that it can be announced on her radio show. Information contact for the public will be on the Web site as soon as it is up and
running in its new home.

AKC Show Entry discussion. AKC wants to enable show entries through their Web site. Positive: when clubs negotiate with show superintendents, they negotiate online charges.
