Thank you! Thank
you! Thank you! To all the club members and their spouses who worked
the day of our show and in the preceding days (and months), Sue
Lusa's group of teens who made life much easier by being there and
lending a hand getting all the odd jobs done, Verlynn and Dave Johns
for allowing SamKC to again "borrow" their beautiful RV,
Jan Leikam for Chairing the show (again!) and keeping all those
loose ends neatly tied up, Barb and Stan for providing a secure
environment for our show, and Chris Lyden for parking all those
RVs and cars. Chris probably took more abuse than all of us put
together when people found out how far they were going to have to
walk from day parking to their rings.
What did you think of the show? What did you like?
What worked well? What needs improvement? Please gather your thoughts
and be ready to critique the show at our October membership meeting.
Why do we have to wait until the October meeting? Because I am going
to be on vacation for both September meetings and I would like to
participate in the critique. Gotta admit to being a little bit nervous
when I realized that we had 3 AKC Field Representatives on the grounds
Saturday and Sunday - 2 were Obedience Field Reps, one was from
New York and he stayed camped by the Obedience Rings. Turned out
While I am on vacation, Rusty will be chairing both
the Board meeting and the membership meeting. At the September membership
meeting, we will need to elect a Show Chair and Judges Selection
Committee for the August 2008 show. If any one would like to join
us in Hawaii (Kona and Maui), it is absolutely lovely at this time
of year and a lot less crowded with all the children back in school.
Just think - our January show is a mere 4 months
away and we get to do it all over, again! Anyone want to volunteer
to host the Christmas party?
