Second Quarter News


Our members have been busy this quarter with shows, coursing, judging and attending matches.  
We got a little derailed by the Canine Flu Outbreak.  

Welcome new members Michelle and Jim Holmes.  The Holmes are Associate members and own Briards.  They are thinking about getting a sighthound and are enthusiast for the CAT events and are both CAT judges and are looking to put on more CAT events with SSRRC.  

We are planning a meeting for June somewhere in the Orlando area.  Stay tuned for information regarding that.  It will be a lunch meeting at a restaurant.  

At our meeting in August, we will be voting on new members provided they have attended 2 meetings:

Lisa Stein (Sponsored by Ginny Merchant and Denise Eberhard)
