Chow Chow Club AGM

Presidents report 2012
Chow Chow of NewZealand

The club is I believe is in reasonably shape considering the current economic climate. I would like to take opportunity to acknowledge and welcome our two new officers who were elected at the last AGM your club secretary Margie Delaney and your treasure Tim Delaney from Danniverke. Our championship (Blackie Harland memorial show) was held at Taupo obedience club grounds in conjunction with TKC. While there were some procedural omissions the show went a head as planned thanks to Tim’s good negotiating skills (Thanks Tim). Then the weather took over and started to rain as the show began and came to an end just as the show was finishing. Big thanks to our judge who persevered with the weather. Well done Reuben who took out best in show and reserve in show. Our little after show function was enjoyed by all including the Great Dane Club of whom Blackie was avid supporter of. Thanks to Hazel for the lovely cake she baked and then was unable to attend due to sudden illness it was enjoyed by all. As always there is a lot behind the scenes work that gets done to enable the show to ahead successfully a special thanks to Ngaire and Ellen for their efforts and everybody else who contribute towards the show. Please keep in mind that this is our 40th anniversary coming up this year (2013) so looking forward to a good entry and behind the scenes support from the committee.

The club finances are managing to hold there own however if the club is to continue in its present form source revenue will have to found. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome the new members may your association with club continue to be enjoyable. As always we need to keep a close eye on expenditure so any donations or forms of generating income and therefore any ideas on that front would be greatly appreciated

The web site has been very successful, I make this statement based on the fact that during the year a audit was carried out and non members were removed, the result from the number of complaints was an indication of just how much the web site assists breeders in particular to make contact with potential buyers it also provides a good forum for contact to be made with breeders. With this in mind I believe a SMALL annual charge could be made to have and maintain an advert on the site. Topic for AGM agenda I believe.

The AGM is to be held on Saturday the 16th of march at the Taupo obedience club grounds (old kennel club grounds) starting at 1100 o’clock and as per the rules all offices and committee are required to stand down however they may stand re-election subject to there consent.

Chow for now
