I cannot say thank you enough to the OKC Club Members, Walla Walla Club Members, Expo Center Staff, The City of Enumclaw, workers, volunteers, judges, ring stewards, handlers, exhibitors, and most of all the show committees for Walla Walla and Olympic. All of you made the Olympic Kennel Club and Walla Walla Kennel Clubs and amazing success. Yes, we got rained on but then it was an outdoor show and this is the Pacific Northwest. No one really seemed to mind. Everyone simply put on their rain gear and went for it. As you can imagine the dress code was a little different, even to one handler who showed in her pencil black skirt, with a rain jacket on top and rain pants under the skirt. The most important thing was to stay as dry as possible. Everyone stuck to the rules, wore their masks and made the best of the weather. We did a couple of things differently than we have before. Some folks really liked and we will continue, others were a necessary because of weather conditions and time frames. The judges coped wonderfully with the weather and adjusted their rings as they needed to to keep folks as dry as they could. I don't know about everyone else, but my memory of this show will be the final day (yesterday) when the sun shined down on all of us and wiped out the rain of the prior 4 days. Sunday was an absolutely beautiful day, in all ways. WE DID IT!!! Chris Lyden, Stacey Davis and their committees managed to put on 5 days of very successful shows with only 6 weeks to plan. It was a monumental chore and one well done.
