Convention Highlights 
 
WSRBA Convention was held in Ellensburg, WA. MRFGNW members did very well in representing the Mini Rex and our Youth did very well also.  Please send me your highlights, wins and any pics you want posted.
 
For those who did not attend...the weather was in the upper 90's and there were over 2400 rabbits on Saturday and about 2000 on Sunday. (The rabbits didn't leave...they just moved to the Youth show.) 


Youth Winners
 
Our Youth members did very well in both the open show and the Youth show.
 
Emily and Willow Foley won BOV with their SR Castor Doe in the Open Show on Saturday. On Sunday, this doe took BOB and RIS in the Youth show.
 
McKenzie Bell won BOSV Black, BOSV Tort, BOV REW and BOSV REW.

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!
