our club very well.
Mary Ness Receives President's Award
Long-time rabbit breeder, registrar and good friend Mary Ness received the special President's Award from WSRBA President
Jean Harris. This award is not given every year and goes to someone that stands out as a supporter of WSRBA. Personally,
I can understand why Mary received this honor. She has always had time (or made time) to help others -- especially the
Youth. She supports ARBA/WSRBA both in actions and in her heart. Congratulations Mary.
Judges Conference Featured Mini Rex
On Friday evening, there was the annual Judge's Conference. For those who did not attend, I highly recommend you
make plans to attend next year. This is a two-hour seminar with several guest speakers. One of this year's topics was
the new varieties of Mini Rex and the varieties being worked on. This was very interesting and gives us all something
to think about...for example...how can we possibly fit more rabbits in the barn!
