Just a note from your Match Chairperson (Susan McSherry) to say that all is going well with the planning for the B/OB match in January. We currently have Patti Mole as our Herding Group Conformation Judge and we have Dara Wilcox as our Non-Sporting Group Conformation Judge and our Conformation clinician. If you have a group you would like to judge; get in touch with me since we are still looking for Conformation judges. Alan Resnick has generously offered to step in for BIS if no one else can be found. This is a great opportunity for people who need some experience who are trying to get their judging licenses. I am trying to cast a wide net to find someone who needs this assignment. Please share this with anyone you know who is trying to become an AKC judge.

The “Usual Suspects” Sherry and her posse ( Susan Gilbert, Wendy Ethier and Lori Sloas) will be taking care of the Obedience/Rally end.

Cj Titus has graciously agreed to do AKC CGC, CGCA & Trick Dog observations/testing with Patti Sontag assisting. Please schedule your CGC, CGCA and/or Trick Dog testing prior to the match so scheduling can be setup. The information and registration will be on the match flyer.

Arlene Myslinski is the match secretary and has been busy doing what match secretaries do. We will of course be in need of all sorts of other talent…..Keep it in mind. We will get back to the membership for setting up volunteers, but it is never too early to mark this event on your calendar, January 20, 2018.
