Annual General Meeting & Training Day
Awards Cook Out
We will have practice racing and GTG as well as some other events lined up for the early part of the day. Then we will all join together to eat and have a brief general meeting followed by the awarding of our annual year end high point awards. We will also be awarding the first annual Ken Baker Humanitarian Award.
More details to come along with start times. Members and non-members are welcome to attend. This is a great time to just relax and enjoy each others company as well as getting in some much needed practice for your young or inexperienced dogs before the start of the fall trial season. There is no cost to participate and your dog can practice as much as you can stand it!!
Ken Baker Humanitarian Award
In honor of Ken Baker, the CJRTC would like to announce the annual Ken Baker Humanitarian Award. Ken Baker was a founding club member as well as having served as our club treasurer until his untimely death. Ken was well know in the world of Jack Russell and was always willing to lend a hand to new dog owners or in any other area he could be of help. His Hideaway Farm dogs were as well know as Ken and won many championships over the years. After the loss of Ken last spring the board of directors voted to pay homage to Ken and after working out all the wrinkles, felt the best way to do this was in an annual award that is presented to someone who embodies the traits that made Ken the special person and club member that he was.
This award will be presented annually to a club member who best exemplifies the qualities that Ken was so well known for. Recipients of this award must be nominated by a current club member and they too must also be a club member to qualify for nomination. Nominations are submitted to the board of directors as detailed on the nomination form, and then the board will vote on who will received this honor each year based upon the nominations submitted.
Nominations are due this year by July 12, 2014 so please print the nomination form below and fill it out then return it ASAP. The award will be presented at the club's annual meeting and training day.
