BBHC Board Meeting Minutes


The meeting was held at the home of Tom and Jane Baetz. In attendance was Chuck Zellermayer, Nina Garlie, Katy Vergeront, Jane Baetz, and Bethany Berger.

The meeting was called to order at 1:47pm.

The officers had little to report except for Chuck, our treasurer. He presented our financials; which included a review of the 2017 budget. As of July 15, 2017 the club has a total if $7,617.83 in the bank.

The other officers and board members had nothing further.

A discussion of social events was had. We already had a candy party in June for the 4-H State Agility Event. It was discussed to have another agility party in fall similar to last year. This event was highly attended and a good time was had. More information on this event at a later date.

The 2017 Specialty report was given by Nina. The show will be held on Friday July 28 at the Waukesha Expo Center in the arena building. The building will have air conditioning. There will be 2 specialty shows, the first show will begin at either 9:00am or 9:30 am. Sweepstakes will take place right after the first show. After sweepstakes a lunch will be available for all attendees. It was stated that Roy Jones (Superintendent) did not send out hard copies of the premium list to very many people. Combined Specialties is aware of this and according to Nina will be fined. Nina also stated she has emailed Kitty to assist in Steward duties.

Jane has the judges under control. Penny Swan will judge the first show, Amanda Ballew will judge sweepstakes and Tim Childers will judge the secondary specialty show. Chuck will send checks to Nina so that she will be able to pay the judges.

Jane also has the raffle underway. Many people have brought their donations to her home already, and others will bring them to the show. She has tickets and all that she will need to make for an awesome raffle.

Prizes are all accounted for. Katy has all donations covered by members. She will bring them to the shows. Bethany has the challenge trophies and will bring them as well to the show.

Hospitality will be a work of the club. Nina will pick up sandwiches from Costco as well as water. Jane will bring deserts and lemonade. Katy will bring a cheese tray. Beth will bring chips, donuts, OJ, crackers and a cooler. Nina will ask Tracy for her famous fruit tray. Members are encouraged to bring an item to pass.

There was no old business to report.

New business includes Nina stating that AKC had a meeting in Waukesha recently in regards to lack of younger membership and many smaller breed clubs having to discontinue. This has been an ongoing problem with the membership and the sport of dogs in general.

Meeting was adjourned 2:30pm

Respectfully submitted - Bethany
