Cu 2017 Premium List Correction

The wrong draft of the Cu Premium List was sent out by accident. The workshops do not cost $10 for all: they are free. We want all of you to participate. On the place for workshops on the entry form, just write “free”. If you’ve already sent your form in with payment, you’ll receive a refund.

Cu Silent Auction and Raffle

As you may already know, this year’s Gathering of the Cu will be put on by The Irish Wolfhound Association of the West Coast on Saturday, December 9, 2017.

There promises to be a wide array of activities presented, two of which will be the raffle and silent auction. In order for the raffle and silent auction to be successful, we will need items (prizes) to be raffled and auctioned off. If you wish to donate a prize, you can send it ahead of time to the address below, or bring it with you the morning of December 9th.

Your generosity to our club will be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Cu!

IWAWC 2017 Specialty Catalog Ads

It’s June, and time to think about catalog ads for the IWAWC specialty.  Once again we invite you to celebrate the occasion and the dogs you love by placing an ad in the Specialty catalog.  Advertising doesn’t come easier or more economically than this!

The WSCS catalog is widely read by all Sighthound breeders and fanciers. Support our club and Specialty by reserving one or more pages. For breed related advertising:

Full page including one photo: $40.00
Half page including one photo: $30.00
Each additional photo: $10.00
Quarter page, no photo: $20.00

Ads can be camera-ready or not. For camera-ready ads, format to 8 1/2 x 11, with 1 inch side margins and 1/2 inch margins top and bottom. For ads that are not camera-ready, send the picture and what you want the ad to say. If you want the picture cropped, describe how (e.g. “crop to dog and handler”, etc.). Put your name and address on the back of all photos.

Please make your check payable to IWAWC. Send the ad and the check to Pat Cobb, 2397 No. Altadena Drive, Altadena, CA 91001 asap, or no later than June 28, 2017. Write Catalog Advertising on the envelope. All Wolfhound ads must be submitted to Bradshaw together. For best reproduction, please also send an electronic version, if available, to Pat (email). It will be forwarded to the Superintendent at the same time.

Judge Change for IWAWC Specialty

For those who have entered or plan to enter the IWAWC Specialties, the judge originally scheduled to judge the Thursday, July 27 Specialty, Eileen M. Flanagan (judge’s number 19001) will be unable to travel because of health issues.  The replacement judge is Ms. Eileen B. Flanagan (judge’s number 15035).

According to AKC rules:

All those who have entered dogs to be shown under the advertised judge shall be permitted to withdraw their entries no later than one half-hour prior to the scheduled start of any regular conformation judging at the show, and entry fees paid for entering such dogs shall be refunded.

IWAWC 2017 Specialty

The IWAWC Specialty information for 2017 has been added to the event calendar. Conformation events will be held on July 27th and 28th in Lompoc, with lure coursing on the 29th.
