                            ANNUAL MEETING  

 

The club met for their annual meeting on April 8, 2006 in Yakima, WA. It rained all day, so we did not get to have our meeting outside. There were 10 members present.

Elections of 2006-07 officers: President: Christine Byron

                                                  Vice President: Gavin Dinnel

                                                  Secretary/Treasurer: Kathy Tellechea

                                                  Directors: Rick Stahl

                                                                    Marti LaRue

                                                                    Tammy Crain                                                  

                                                                                                 Sweepstakes awards had been passed out earlier at various shows.  Since Soni Jager is no longer a member of the club, Kathy T. volunteered to be in charge of sweepstakes awards. Kathy T. said she would be asking for ideas and suggestions for awards from club members later in the year. So members, get your thinking caps on.

 

Kelsey Bell volunteered to get items for the basket we will donate to the raffle at Nationals. We decided it would be drinks and snacks from the District 1 area. Pam Renfro said she had a nice basket she would donate to the cause. We will assemble it once we get to Monterey.

 

The main discussion of the meeting was upcoming specialty shows. With Soni no longer secretary for the specialty shows in Oregon, Christine asked if any other members would like to be secretary for specialty shows. Christine will be the secretary for the Double Cluster Shows in August at Monroe, WA.  Kelsey said she would like to see the club hold a Double maybe a Triple and Youth shows in the Bend area in August or September. We decided on September 23 because the weather will be cooler by then. She will see if she can find judges available for that date. Kathy T. volunteered to secretary a Triple Crown in Portland, Oregon on November 18 at the Quality Cage warehouse. She will also be looking for judges. Candy Mathews will be the secretary for the Specialty show in December at Mt. Vernon, WA.

 

With judges so hard to find so close to the show dates, Christine said she would get our 2007 schedule organized and ask for members to volunteer to secretary future shows and start looking for judges now instead of waiting. She will e-mail potential secretaries!!!

 

Also discussed awards for the specialty shows. Trying to find something different other then rosettes each time. Suggestions made were money (such as the Susan B. Anthony dollars or other “special” money), handmade awards, different types of rosettes, zipper pulls. Everyone agreed that the variety medals given at the Triple Crown in January were nice, but probably just a once a year thing. Christine said she would not order any more rosettes until June and for everyone to be looking around for awards that we could use. If any members that were not present at the meeting have any ideas or suggestions please let Christine or Kathy T. know…

 

Christine mentioned we need to have more youth shows in our District. The way the sweepstake points are counted our youth can not compete nationally because the points that the youth earned in open shows are counted in open sweepstakes and not youth. Anyone willing to put on a youth specialty show let us know.

 

Meeting was adjourned.

 

Respectfully submitted by

Kathy Tellechea, Sec/Treasurer
