Town Hall Brings NE Leaders Together

kipandbarb.jpgTwo VIP’s participating in the recent “Town Hall” meeting in Connecticut were Kip Shepard and Barbara Breed, shown here. In fact, Kip was one of the supporting sponsors who helped with facilties and meals for the regional club members in and near Territory VI. Barb, a former ApHC director, helped with the discussions and, for better or worse, documented the event with numerous photographs.

As I suspect happens when any group of members gather, there were discussions about the challenges faced by regional clubs — costs of putting on a show, national point fees, judges (costs, the need for more information and perhaps a rating system), the number of approved ApHC classes, incentives for color, breed standards, show rules, etc. We’ll be posting, or at least making available, the complete set of notes from the Hartford meeting very soon.
