  1. Ads in TAO Catalog

    It's 2018! TAO has sent out a late request for ads in their Wed Jan 17 catalog. Contact me (kaplani@union.edu) if you are interested!
  2. I will give specialty updates at the November, December and January membership meetings, and of course, anyone can ask me questions at the CRCTC Holiday Party in December. After the holidays, and depending on the weather, we can start having additional specialty committee meetings-- that worked very well last year!
  3. 2016 Specialty Page Updates

    Specialty meetings Let's try and convene as part of the Nov and Dec club meetings. I will also give updates at these meetings. Once the holidays are over (see you at the holiday party!) we will start with specialty committee meetings since that worked well last year!
  4. Specialty Theme

    SPECIALTY THEME SELECTED! Last year our theme committee recommended that we had great topics to choose from and that we should keep them in mind for future years. For 2018, we decided to go with CAIRNIVAL, suggested by Brad LaBroad. There is a cairn carousel posted and we are looking forward to a fun time!

    ...as always, we are politically correct! lol
  6. Hunting Rats, Barn Hunt Style

    Another successful barn hunt practice was sponsored by CRCTC Saturday, Sept 9, capturing a full day of education and fun. Cairns, borders, setters, cattle dogs and an assortment of other two and four footed teams turned out for a great day at the Smith Barn in Battle Ground, Wa. The day began with a barn hunt tutorial session led by Ilene Kaplan and Vicki Havlik. Basic barn hunt rules and practices were reviewed and the participants then experienced a Meet the Rat session with Rat Men Tim and Luke. After the education program, instinct, novice, open and senior runs were held. Over 30 folks showed up and many brought multiple dogs. In addition to club members Vicki Havlik and Ilene Kaplan, thanks also go to Betsy Peets and Linda Kenney for ringside help. And of course, very special thanks to Hallie Smith who is so generous to our club with the use of the Smith's Barn. Hallie also worked a full day, along with help from her sidekick Cairns Elinore and Malkeh. I hope folks add pictures. Included are pics of Debbie and Junot & Jane and Darcy. We will let you all know when our next barn hunt practice will be held. Come and have fun!
