Happy New Year, everyone!
I hope your Christmas and New Years were blessed. I would like to start off by announcing the results of our Board of Directors election for 2019.
President: Mike Hardy
Vice-President: Tom Davi
Secretary: Becky Williams
Treasurer: Susie Gallagher
Members-at-Large: Jason Smith, A.J. Cecchettini, Dave Farrar
I was on the Board for the Santa Lucia Sportsmen’s Association for 15 years, and I understand how thankless these positions can sometimes be. I want to thank each member of our new board up front for your service, time and devotion to this club.
As you know, our club has been in a state of flux. Due to the shortened period of time within which to plan and execute, we will not be holding a hunt test in 2019. We are, however, already planning for 2020, and we will have plenty of time to put on a first-class hunt test that we can be proud of.
Hopefully, we will see some new faces this year! If you have friends or acquaintances who would like to be involved in hunt test training, hunting companion training or starting out with a new puppy or dog, please invite them to come out to any of our training days. Club training days have been scheduled at Goose Lake on the following dates:
We will also be scheduling some interim training days at Jason Smith’s property in Creston, and you will be notified when these get scheduled.
Please also note that the club will be holding a Super Singles event on May 18that Goose Lake. This event will be open to members and non-members. Details will be announced once the event is fully planned.
In closing, I would personally like to thank Jason Smith for all his hard work – it is much appreciated.
I look forward to a great year with CCHRC!
