THANK YOU to everyone who helped.
From loading-up & taping on Tuesday, to tear-down on Sunday.
Has been an interesting year.
Challenges this year:
2 judges cancelling 4 days before the show on a 3day W.E.
Hurricane Harvey in Gulf during entry deadline date
Hurricane Irma aiming at FL during the show
Vendors – had 2 cancel
1 refunded due to flooding in Houston
1 credited for 2018 show – Atlanta Semen Bank
Learned a lot. Made a few mistakes along the way, but all in all was good. Will not dwell on any specifics unless someone has a question.
2018 Show already in progress: Sept 6-9, 2018
2 wks will file paper work with AKC for next year
2 Toy, 4 AB, 2 Specialty shows, 4 NOHS, (2 Obedience?)
Changing Superintendents: MB-F to Onofrio
2 major reasons
Cost (go over comparison)
Coliseum Costs – are the same
Taping on Tuesday, Sept. 4 @ 10a
Will be lowering costs on many items:
Judging Panel set (cannot release until AKC approves)
Needs for 2018
Hotel updates for PL (discount for dog show) (Motel 8 gives 10%, will they match?)
RV camping areas (prices and discounts)
Golf cart rental deal
BrianIt takes a big man to show a small dog,It takes a REAL man to show a hairless one.
