December Show Committee - No report. Some people
are going over Friday (May 10) evening to look at the
new site. About 3 times as many vendors as we have
available space have inquired about space. There’s
about 300' of vendor space available. Discussion was
held on how much to charge per foot for vendor space.
It was decided to let Ed look at the site and then do a
proposal for the board. There’s a 2000 dog limit for
this show due to space restrictions.

Educational Committee - It was decided not to have
the educational booth at the December show.

            The June meeting will feature the presentation of the Pat Hasting’s video
            tape, The Puppy Puzzle. Pat and her husband, Bob, had years of
            experience in dogs as breeders and professional handlers. Pat worked
            with a wide selection of professionals in veterinary medicine, animal
            husbandry, genetics and even engineers to come of with what she
            considers to be a tried and true method to select only the best puppies.

            The tape runs about 30 minutes and is a small portion of her two-day

            Several club members have tried the method and will be there to answer
