Unfinished Business:


Sandy has phoned CKC twice and not gotten an answer regarding the rally sanction matches…if same as obedience we need 3 sanction matches over a year period and less than 2.  Wondered if since we already have a show if maybe we didn’t need to have all 3.

Sandy is going to continue to speak to the CKC.

Sandy has the application for the sanction match.


Correspondence:  Bill from CKC for 22.00 with S/C from CKC and doesn’t know what it is for.  Connie..any ideas??? 

Walking with our dogs Sept 26th…couldn’t get into website…..FYI  Sandy will see if she can find more information


Dog free park:  Chelsea to look into, Melanie went to Wasaga Beach and saw a “Bark Park” – very small with some stationary agility equipment.  Just another type of park.  Ivale saw some in Florida where dogs were separated by size and type.  Everything double gated.   Just some ideas…..


Treasurer’s report:  No changes…no new cheques have been written…..owes some money to civic centre which will be paid…new member chq received from Melanie.  Connie was to look into credit card again.
