Message from the
Western Regional Director
by Frank O’Leary
Western Regional Members,
Happy New Year!!
The weather in Walla Walla for the last two weeks has felt and looked like winter. We have had very cold temperatures and eight inches of snow. At least we had a white Christmas.
The Western Region Board of Directors has been busy finalizing the dates and judging teams for the 2018 testing schedule. The Judges for the spring tests and most of the fall tests are posted and can be viewed:
The information sheet for the Spring Derby’s will be out by mid-February. If you are planning to test in a WR Derby please enter now. The tests are filling up and we know there are still dogs to enter. Please use ......
Western Region Annual Raffle
Congratulations to the winners of the WR Annual Raffle. Summer Swart, of Kooskia, ID, was the first name out of the bowl. Summer, who choose the Beretta Over/Under Shotgun, purchased her ticket from her sister-in-law, Andrea Mahorney.
Summer is from Kooskia, ID and offered the following upon receiving the Shotgun, “I’m so excited to be the proud owner of this beautiful piece of art! Thank you Western Region of the NADKC for making it possible!”
The second ticket drawn belong to Frank &Marianne O’Leary from Walla Walla, WA. Frank & Marianne and two of their hunting companions will enjoy the Hunt Oregon Upland Bird Hunt. Hunt Oregon, LLC, has graciously donated the upland bird hunt for four people, for three days, and four nights.
The NADKC elections this year were for the positions of Treasurer, Bred Warden, Great Lakes Regional Director, and Mid-South Regional Director. Each of the contests generated only one nominee. Therefore, the winners were determined by default. They are:
John Calandra – NADKC Treasurer
Rich Rungee – NADKC Breed Warden
Lloyd “Butch” Grover – Great Lakes Regional Director
Steve Remspecher – Mid-South Regional Director
Again this year the election was conducted electronically. Congratulations to NADKC Secretary Randall Cherry and the Election Committee for the efforts in making this process so successful.
