2010 Specialty and supported entry.  Due to the  2010 ASCA National Specialty in Waco, TX which ends Oct 28 and the Dixon show begins the 30th, there was discussion to consider alternate locations, with suggestions that included:


Santa Clara KC, San Jose, February 2011

Mensona KC,  Santa Rosa, August

Woofstock, Vallejo, June


There was a suggestion was to send out proposals to potential Clubs early with request for what we will need and req and hospitality site, support for requested judging times, ability to have input on judges


Request: Please send out an email to members when feed back on judges is needed.


Supported entry for Dixon show in 2010 understanding conflict with ASCA – don’t want to burn bridges and evaluate option of a specialty somewhere else.

Motion: Pass on 2010 Dixon specialty and instead support entry for Friday only. Second Shelia Polk No opposition, motion carried.


Treasurer's report – Financial information was shared with members present.  Great membership and donation support!! Thanks everyone.


Suggestions for future events??  AKC requires clubs to sponsor different types of events to maintain status.  Suggestions were:  New handlers event, clinic’s (conformation, rally), puppy match.


Question: Update from Bruce regarding AKC status?


Recommendation to include electronic approval of nomination slate?
