Dear PCTC friends,
In September, the weather did not cooperate and the Warrenton K.C. show on September 29, 2018 was washed out. The organizers of both the Warrenton and Old Dominion shows assure us that they are looking hard for an indoor venue for 2019. Thanks to all of you who supported the entry at Warrenton; I was gratified to see that we would have had majors.
We had our second Canine Good Citizenship event on October 20, at Point of Rocks, Maryland, presented by Charmaine Fedick, our Performance Committee chair. This event expands opportunities for us and for our dogs. The CGC certificate is often required for dogs who volunteer in schools, nursing homes, and hospitals. Thanks to Charmaine and John and Lois Cleland for arranging this and for leaving home before dawn to prepare.
On November 1, though, we had a perfect fall day for the field trials. Thanks to Veronica Hudak-Moe and Ken Moe for hosting and organizing this event and to all of you who run equipment, ferry neck scrunchies back and forth, catch dogs, and run the go-to-ground. We had some very fast exciting races. As usual, the kinder run was the best, as the puppies tumbled to the finish line. I got to talk to old friends and also to some new people who may apply for membership.
The field trials were our last event for 2018. We will meet again in the new year on Saturday, January 19, 2019, at O'Faolain's for our annual Celebration Brunch. Our Spring Match is Saturday, February 2, 2019, at St. Alban’s Church, followed by the annual meeting March 2, 2019.
