This year’s event was held in conjunction with the Coyote Hills Kennel Club show and marked the beginning of a new partnership and transition to our back-to-back Specialty show format commencing in 2017. Working with Coyote Hills was a dream. We now have our own large ring at the front of the fairgrounds with plenty room for our potluck and event. Even though it rained for the first in 15 years, everyone was excited about the new location. Congratulations to all of the winners!!!
First, I would like to thank EVERYONE! My “set up” crew of Shelley Coburn, June Ortman, Sheila Stahr and Heather Kearn, et al. Thank you to Lynn Petrangelo who, not only helped with set up, but allows us to use her RV for storage and easy access of our potluck items. A special thank you to Elena Moore for tagging along with me as I went from store-to-store gathering all things “necessary” and for accepting and storing all the packages I have direct shipped to her home for our event. And of course, her wonderful taste in flowers!!! A big shout out to all of the individuals that brought all of the wonderful and delightful food for our potluck! We always have tons!!! Thank you to all that stepped up and pitched in to set up AND break down the potluck. There were so many people it took no time at all getting it all put away…too many to list because I am afraid I would forget someone…but to all….you are very much appreciated. Thank you to Bob and Colleen Meacham for going out of their way to follow me back to the storage and help me put everything away. And last but not least, thank you to Dane Mrazek for standing in as trophy presenter because I hate to be in pictures…and to Theresa Prikasky who tracks our sponsorships and ALWAYS keeps me on track!
Secondly, thank you to all of our big-hearted sponsors. You ROCKED it!! Because of your generosity our club is able to provide lovely, custom made trophies and keepsakes of our event. Next year we will have two specialties to fund, so please considering donating again AND we will be having a special prepaid Visa Gift Card raffle that will help fund trophies as well.
Thank you again and looking forward to TWO Specialties in ONE day in 2017!!
