Annual Message 2012

August 2012 Greetings from J.D.

The 2012-2012 trial season is just around the corner. Club membership is stronger than ever and we are looking forward to another great year.

Along with new members and strong renewals comes increased participation in our events, increased participation on the various committees that support the Club and increased opportunities for prospective trials and locations.

Membership has indicated an interest in two additional trial dates for the 2012-2013 trial season. We will firm up these dates and add them to the calendar of events. Remember, even if you are not running a dog at a trial you are welcome to come, bring your dog and visit.

The drought of 2012 has a pretty good hold on us here in central Illinois. The Central Illinois trial grounds are in good shape despite the weather. Our wells at home are holding on but I did find a timer on the vanity next to the shower recently.

I wish everyone the best and hope to see you all this fall.
