Well, our September "FUN" day was just that and much more. In fact, it was a BLAST! Many club members participated in a day filled with friends, food, Flat Coat antics and tough competition for those coveted prizes.

That’s quite a turnout, huh! And, of course, with all these wonderful animals came their wonderful owners with what else ..... FOOD... FOOD AND MORE FOOD! As we all know, that’s what we do best... cook. It was so nice to see many members for the first time or again after a long absence.

And now the results of the hotly contested games:

The winners of the Obstacle Course and Balderdash games were not available at the time of my report. But, know who you are. Be assured, when I get them, they will be published.

The event was organized and staged by Sarah Messick and Candy Ferner. Great job ladies! Everyone who was there had an absolutely great time. By the way, the WET T-SHIRT CONTEST was not as implied. I’m sure you figured that one out on your own. Specifically, the shirts were not worn by humans....get the picture?

As the saying goes, we’ll have to do this again next year so if you didn’t get a chance to participate this time around, be sure to mark your calendars when the date in ‘98 is set.

My apologies if my report is a bit sketchy, but I was running around trying to cover everything and everyone which was no easy task. We were all so busy having a good time....
