Show and event photos
Hovawart Calendar 2017The choices have been made and thanks to everyone who sent photos, they were of very high quality this year and made the choices difficult. As usual there were more of the black/golds due to their greater numbers so competition in that section was head scratching at times. The three colours of the breed are represented in near equal proportions, with a multi colour photo making up the fourth blonde participant.
If you would like to purchase one, two or more - all profits to the club funds - they can be ordered from John Sharpe on 01544 318705, email:-
email@example.com at £7.50 each plus postage (please contact John for postage costs).They will be available at the show for collection at £7.50 each on Sunday 2nd October 2017
As you may remember, back in the summer, the club rescued a young French-born bitch, and, for various reasons beyond our control, had the expense of returning her to France, the only alternative for her to euthanasia. I have no doubt it was the correct course of action to take, and has resulted in an agreement via the IHF for co-operation between member counties in cases like this in the future.
However, although we have a specific fund for “Rescue”, this episode effectively wiped it out, and we therefore need to replenish it. There have been some individual initiatives so far, Gill selling magazines and the cake stall at the Club Show for example, and your committee thought it would be a good idea to revisit the “100” club, which successfully added to the funds for the IHF conference in 2012.
The scheme works as follows:-
Members, who can have as many shares as they like, put in £1 per share per month. At the end of each month, a draw is made for 3 prize winners, who take between them 50% of the month’s income, the other 50% going to the Rescue Fund. The prizes will be in the ratio 3:2:1, so that if we have 60 members, 1st prize in any one month would be £15,2nd £10 and 3rd £5, and £30 would go to the fund.
I would like the first draw to happen at the end of January, so please dig deep and take out as many shares as you can. Payment can be in any way that works. We can take BACS payments, the club account number is 41573282, sort code 09 01 54, but if you do use this method, please let me know you have done it, as I only hear from the bank occasionally. You will find a downloadable form with this email bundle, and it will also be on the club website.
Thank you in anticipation of your support for this important fundraiser. Although we happily have few rescues, when they happen they need immediate funds, and it would be very sad not to be able to help any Hovawart in need.
