Dear PCTC friends,
I am happy to report that we supported the Warrenton Kennel Club show, on September 30, 2017, in style. We turned out enough entries for a 3-point major in bitches and provided some lovely trophies, all of which were won by our own PCTC members. It was a pleasure to see some beautiful dogs and talk to old friends.
At the Board meeting after the show, we took care of the annual, year-end administrative tasks. The Board set up the Judges Balloting Committee and the Nominating Committee for next year’s board. To be successful, these committees will need your help or your opinion.
On October 22, we had a great day for the field trials. Thanks again to Veronica Hudak-Moe and Ken Moe for hosting this event.
I am just back from our first Canine Good Citizenship event, presented by Charmaine Fedick, our Performance Committee chair, who drove all the way down to Point of Rocks, Maryland, from Pennsylvania. Our vice-president, John Cleland, will give you a full report on the event, but I just want to say how nice it was to get to know new people better. The event attracted several visitors and some new members. Also, it was fun and encouraging to see our dogs performing so well in a new area. Thanks, Charmaine, John, and Lois Cleland, for doing this for all of us.
This year is winding down, and we have only three more opportunities to get together. For our holiday gathering, we will have a Twelfth Night brunch, Sunday, January 7, 2018, at O'Faolain's, where we met last year. By moving it after the Christmas crush, we are hoping even more of you will join us. Our Spring match will be Saturday, February 17, 2018, at St. Alban’s church. Our last event of the year is the annual meeting on Sunday, March 11, 2018, at the Amphora, Herndon, Virginia. John Cleland will be providing us with the details of all these events. To keep up with our schedule and find directions, check our calendar at http://www.potomacctc.org/calendar/.
Have a wonderful holiday with family and all your friends, dog and human,
