2019 Southland Weimaraner Club Specialties and
WCA Western Futurity and Maturity
July 4 & 5, 2019
The 2019 Southland Weimaraner Club Specialties and WCA Futurity and Maturity are a wrap and in the books. Luckily, unlike last year’s blistering 103° heat, this year the weather gods smiled upon us with slightly overcast mornings in the 60s, afternoon temperatures in the mid 70s with the occasional sea breeze. In other words, perfect dog show weather.
This year’s Show Committee: Gina Grissom, July 4 show chair, Linda D’Alessandro, July 5 show chair; Jo-Ann Rosenberg, Dona Tanaka, Mary McElwee, Carley Devine, Jordan Dickenson, and Rachel Aguilar spent months working through the issues and ironing out the details including: judges, grounds, trophies and hospitality. However, a big thank you also goes out to a very special group of members: Bob and Vickie Margolis, Brad Rosenberg, Walt Freshour, Keith Pautz, Brenda Barnette, Pam Hutson, and Louise Brady, who, in addition to caring and showing their own dogs, pitched in before, during and after the shows to do the “heavy lifting” involved in set up, hospitality and tear down.
Much appreciation goes out to Gwen Lattin (show secretary), Lani McKennon (ring steward) and our judges: Melissa Hampton, who came all the way from Maryland to judge our Sweeps; Debbie Campbell Freeman (July 4 Specialty), Sam Houston McDonald (Futurity/Maturity), Pam Murphy (Obedience), and Barbara Dempsey Alderman (July 5, Specialty).
Last but not least, a huge shout out to all the exhibitors who came in from far and wide to show their dogs. This year brought in exhibitors from not only out of state, but also from Canada and England. Congratulations on your wins! We hope you enjoyed your stay and had a safe trip home.
Congratulations to all the winners!
