We started the day with the weather man's
forecast of morning temps in the high 60s and
low 70s for the afternoon. As usual he was
wrong we had a beautiful day in the 70's all
day with lots of sun. Along with the good
weather we had a great turnout
Steve and Candy Hilker handled
the games this year. The games
were a lot of fun and good for some laughs also especially
the dress your Newf. Russ Nummer kept us feed with plenty
of hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken breast hot off the grill.
Everyone's side dishes were tasty and plentiful. I'm sure we
all left a few pounds heavier.
Our Newfs were very busy his year and we had many awards to hand out
including a new Versatile Newfoundland title; VN CH Bluemoon's Foreign
Affair CD, WRD1, DD.
Tara had a huge Brown bag raffle basket, actually a swimming pool full of
Newfie stuff. Everyone wanted it, but somehow Linda Larsen won again.
The day ended with a bang, well more of a whimper. As Angela and I got
ready to leave our van battery decided to stay. Kathy Van Wie came to the rescue. After we tryed
several things to get it started, Kathy drove me to the
nearby Sears to get a new battery so we could get
home, thanks Kathy. That's the great thing about our
club, there is always someone around to help. Whether
it is a dead battery, a training or health question or just
to talk, someone is always there.
Thanks to all who attended and
