We had the most perfect weather for our picnic trial on Sunday and the turnout was very good. We want to thank our Hunt test judges Ray Bester & Donny Hazleton and our Field Trial judges Skip Snow & Chris Bayles. Thanks to Dave Robb and Chris & Jodie Plouffe who brought food for our lunch and thanks to Arlene Comtois for helping us put the lunch together.
The AGM went well and we really appreciated the members who came out and got involved. The minutes of the AGM are below. The executive is the same with one change. Pete Wyckoff has retired from his VP position and Skip Snow has stepped in. We want to thank Jeanne Barrett for volunteering to be the WC trial secretary for next year and Jill Chalmers for volunteering to be our Hunt Test secretary.
With the economy the way it is and the resulting lower entries we will be looking at our members to help out at our trials so we don’t have to hire as many bird boys. This will be a huge cost savings for our club. We are only asking 1-2 days of your time.
Also of special note, we will not be having picnic trials in January or February for next year but will resume for March and April.
