Dearest Members,

Spring has sprung and we are finally seeing light at the end of the COVID tunnel! We had a successful Specialty despite the COVID precautions. A BIG thank you to Ann Smith and Peggy Davis, our show Chairwomen, and to Janet Hylton for all of her hard work making sure we were within the guidelines for both the State and Fairgrounds, to John Barrett and his grounds crew, and of course to those that came early to help set up and those that stayed after the show to make sure the grounds were clean and tidy after the show. I know it is difficult for those that have driven a long distance, but we could not hold Club activities without all of your unselfish help. Thank you!

I also would like to acknowledge two new members who took the step to enter and show their own dogs, congratulations to Diana Delk with ‘Giddy’, and Michelle Mulrooney with ‘Chase’ on your first conformation show. Another first, our own Katy Hemphill was ring steward for her first time in the Obedience/Rally ring. I’m told she did a stellar job, and will most likely be recruited for next year. Thank you, Katy!

Many of you already know this, but this year Woofstock will be held in November at the Santa Rosa fairgrounds. Cindy Stanford along with Ann Smith, Jeanette Holmes have been working with the grounds club to get judges. We will have a supported entry so please plan to attend. It is always nice to get those red dogs in the ring.

AKC has once again updated the number of Irish Setters and the point schedule. (Editor’s Note: Complete details are in last month’s issue of “Tails”). The new schedule is:

1 point
2 points
3 points
4 points
5 points

•The only changes in numbers for 2021 were for 4 & 5 points

Stay safe everyone, and be sure to hug those red dogs!
