OUR 2016 FVDTC ANNUAL OBEDIENCE/RALLY TRIALS
ARE IN THE BOOKS!
Thank you to all of our exhibitors for joining us for our two days of Obedience/Rally Trials. Congratulations to those that were successful in earning a leg, a placement, a title, or a special award! We were happy to share the experience with you.
A thank you goes out to our Trial Chair (Pat Senne) and her committee for organizing and running the weekend for us. Thank you to Bob Olson, our Trial Secretary, who is “Johnny on the spot” when something needs to be recorded, changed, or updated. We do appreciate your speedy confirmation emails and the email for results that you send to each exhibitor after the trial is completed. Donna Bihner (our “house” photographer for the weekend) did a great job with candids, and the selfie photo station). This is a great addition to our trial. Thanks Pat for the cute fall decorations.
Without our wonderful stewards, we would not be able to put on the trial. So, pat yourselves on the back for a job well done! The Kitchen Krew did a great job keeping us fed with sweet treats, sandwiches, great soups and more. The Raffle was very successful this year thanks to Cathy and Sharon. Holly has done a great job with the ribbons. the Title Rosettes are awesome. Even the placement ribbons were cool. And did you all see the OTCH ribbon that is just waiting for someone to earn that title at our trials? Keep that in mind for next year, you OTCH competitors!
There are many more people that have not been mentioned that made the trials possible. Thanks to everyone for a job WELL DONE!
AWARDS! AWARDS! AWARDS!
Have you earned 10 work credits for 2016? If so, then this announcement is for you! It is time again to think about choosing a special award for your hard work. We offer two types of awards, Volunteer Awards and Title Awards. Volunteer is for those members who gave their time but did not earn titles on their dogs this year. Title Awards go to those who gave their time and also earned titles. Members may apply for one award type but not both. Award forms are due to the committee on February 2nd although they would appreciate them early so the many artists can get to work.
Confused on what to pick? View pictures of each option! (Volunteer awards pictures can be found on the pages for level 1 and level 2.)
A note on the Front and Finish awards....they have changed their submission process and you now must apply online www.frontandfinish.com. To see the forms you must first sign up for their free membership.
Remember anyone in the family may earn the 10 credits. Questions? ask Donna Bihner or Nancy Pederson
