New Point Schedule for AKC Shows, Division 9 – California (Change from last year)
Effective As Of May 13, 2018
For complete Conformation Championship requirements see Chapter 16 of the Rules Applying to Dog Shows. The Points toward a Championship shall be awarded to the Winners Dog and Bitch of each breed or variety based on the actual number of dogs or bitches competing in that breed or variety.
If the dog designated Winners Dog or Winners Bitch is also awarded Best of Breed or Variety, the dogs of both sexes that have been entered for Best of Breed or Variety competition and that have been defeated in such competition, shall be counted in addition to the dogs that completed in the regular classes for its sex in calculating championship points.
If the dog designated Winners Dog or Winners Bitch is also awarded Best of Opposite Sex to Best of Breed or Variety, the dogs of its own sex that have been entered for Best of Breed or Variety competition that have been defeated in competition for Best of Opposite Sex, shall be counted in addition to the dogs that completed in the regular classes for its sex in calculating championship points.
After points have been computed for Winners Dog and Winners Bitch subject to the above two stipulations, the dog awarded the Best of Winners shall be credited with the number of points calculated for Winners Dog or Winners Bitch, whichever is greater.
In counting the number of eligible dogs in competition, a dog that is disqualified, or that is dismissed, excused or ordered from the ring by the judge, or from which all awards are withheld shall not be included. Any dog which shall have won fifteen points shall become a Champion of Record, if six or more of said points shall have been won at two shows with a rating of three or more championship points each and under two different judges, and some one or more of the balance of said points shall have been won under some other judge or judges than the two judges referred to above.

S.W.C. GENERAL MEETING
July 5th after Second Specialty
****Latest Show and Obedience News****
****2017 Southland Weimaranr Club Match and Weim Festival****
We pulled it off !! Just our small group managed to provide all the equipment and almost all of the manpower to do the entire event. And I thought everything went very well.
At the end of the day an ex-member named Bob Hunt did help us out with tearing down and putting away equipment, that was very kind of him.
But other than that – it was all us.
Thanks to Vickie for thinking of the nail demo, and to Louise for giving it. That was great.
I am pondering having a Fancy Weim Hat contest next year, what do you think? Might be fun – and see what people show up with. If you have any ideas of other fun stuff, please let me know.
The games seem to have faded away. I’ve come prepared for the past 2 years, without many takers. So we need to have some alternative, all input is appreciated.
We had a great turnout for the match and “handling class” prior to the Festivle avtivities. It was a nice day, and Judge did a great job with the youngsters and calmed the handler nerves too!
Judge Carrie Racey placed the entries as follows:
- Mary McElwee – # 217 – 6-9 Puppy Dog – 1st place BOB in Match
- Hat’s Off N Heirlooms Change The World
- Charles Salse – # 219 – 12-18 Month Dog – 1st place

A special Thank you from Friends for Pets:
I received the following email from Diane Monahan and wanted to share it with all of you (with her permission of course!)
We want to thank each of the SWC members for their participation in the 23rd Weimaraner Festival on our behalf. What an incredible day! This always is a wonderful opportunity for So CA Weim Rescue adopters/supporters and SWC members to come together and enjoy and share our love of the breed.
It’s quite incredulous what a following the Weim Festival has earned. Our adopters ask months in advance if the date for the Festival has been finalized. As you know, they come (with their Weims, of course) from Oregon, from San Diego, from Orange County, Carmel, Palm Springs, the Santa Clarita Valley. They come because of the promised fun day with their Weims. They come because they believe and support both Rescue and the Club.
I feel very proud of what we have accomplished together.
We’re greatly indebted to Gina Grissom for bringing this event to fruition and for recognizing long ago how meaningful it would be for our two groups to communicate and work together.
We’re already looking forward to next year!
Diane Monahan, Founder/Executive Director
Friends For Pets Foundation
Southern CA Weim Rescue
From the Editor/Membership person:
The Festival kicked off with games selling/buying of raffle tickets, old and new acquaintances (both Weim and Human) met and talked. Stories were told of compassion and love of the breed. All this to give Weimaraner families a place to gather and enjoy each others company, talk with long time Weim breeders and owners, old and new Rescue fami lies and allow us all to exchange information, & ideas and raise funds for Friends For Pets. A sincere THANK YOU to Gina Grissom for doing her usual wonderful job of organizing and pulling off another great Festival.
One thing I would like to say, if you are reading this, whether you got your Weim from a breeder or from rescue, and are not a member of SWC, you might want toconsider joining and helping out so these types of activities can continue. The club could use some new (younger) members to keep this and other events going on old and new aquaintances (both Weim and Human) met and talked.

We held a WCA Retrieving Ratings on Sunday, Sept 17th at Prado. The day was overcast and cool, great day for dog training! I would like to extend huge thanks to all who helped make this a very successful event. Thank you to our judges, Nancy Rapoport and Anne Taguchi, who presided over the 2 entries in the RD and 9 entries in the NRD. Thanks to Carlos DeTevis for procuring birds, gunning in the RD and some of the NRD, and helping get the testing grounds set. Thanks to Mike Fields who manned bird stations in both stakes. Thanks to Rachel Aguilar and Dona Tanaka, WCA rep and Event Chair respectively, without whom we could not have put on the test. And thank you Dona for all the great pictures! And most of all, Thank you to all who entered and supported our Club event, and brought their pot luck offerings for the wonderful lunch we enjoyed after we were finished. There were a few who did not qualify, but were very interested in their birds. With just a little more training they will easily earn their ratings in future events.
Louise Brady, event secretary
