Clean up- Connie has 2 young men lined up for this job. They are willing to do it voluntarily but we approved a small monetary amount of $50 per day plus lunch is going to be given for such dedication to a truly Crappy jog (lol) Thanks Tyler and Andrew.
We are still looking for a junior handling judge
Connie spoke to Coby about the ramp for showing large dogs and it is NOT necessary. C&A also has the wickets available should there be a height dispute.
There are rumours that Bill Taylor may not be able to judge….we have heard nothing official. A back up judge has been arranged just in case.
Sandy is going to speak to Bob Smith from Home Hardware about setting up an account for the club. This would make it easier to obtain last minute items for the show etc. Let Connie know when this has been arranged.
Connie is going to take care of contacting the paper and A-channel and My F.M.
Michelle Billings was booked to judge for 2009 and was double booked so we now have her for 2010.
Connie will be fighting for our dates when it is time (go Connie!!!!grrrrr)
