  3. Okay Denise, I'm a jagged pill that doesn't like tearing up, so have a hard time with the poem and words fail me... However, I know I've shared with you privately how fond I am of Mick, so the very mention of his name prompted me to visit his "PBase Album" to enjoy all those great pics of him all over again... but now I can't find it As far as the perhaps regarding the last time you'll run him, you are spot on when you say that some dogs are able to compensate for their aging bodies and modify their working style and some aren't... I have an "old dude" that is able to put in a far lo

  5. Francis asked me to let folks know that the server is currently down, preventing her from updating scores. Help is scheduled to arrive at approximately 2:30 pm, and updates will takes place just as soon as everything is back up and running. Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated : - )
  6. What fantastic forward progress! I hope the current motion, regarding seconded, stated motions being posted for a 1 week minimum, passes.
  7. Amy and Gary – Tremendous thanks for your efforts, which seem to be leading somewhere, so have not been expended in vain. Michele and Wilda – You consistently serve District One with a singular focus on the best interests of the Association. Keep up the grand work! BOD/Herbert – I appreciate and respect your unselfish services as well. Posting BOD discussion topics (any chance of doing the same for Committee discussion topics?) is a nice start and will go a long way in providing “pre-decision” opportunities for HA members to make contact with their BOD if /when they care to. Regard

  13. Interesting... I recall a motion some time back about not sanctioning arena time trials for sheep/cattle, which was subsequently withdrawn allowing continued sanctioning. Although I don't recall the specific why (for the original motion or the subsequent withdrawal) it does seem that most arena/timed trials certainly don't fit neatly into Section 22 or 31. Anyway, I've departed down a rabbit trail... you're right of course, the real point is novice classes do vary quite a bit... and it is best to call ahead to someone who has knowledge of the specific course.
  14. With the exception of the Finals, I wasn't aware of any official HA formats/standards or "specified manner" for sanctioned Open or Nursery classes either, leaving the course format and rules up to the local association/trial host. Or, am I off base?
  15. We are coordinating the availability of lessons at the World Championship Rodear in Fort Klamath, Oregon (directions, etc. posted at http://www.rodearcowdogs.com ) To date we have confirmed the availability of Elvin Kopp. Elvin will be visiting from Westerose, Canada, a town two hours north of Calgary, where he raises purebred Red Angus cattle, runs an annual summer pasture program of 1800 yearlings and raises registered Quarter Horses. Elvin is an accomplished trainer and handler, as well as a respected trial judge who has been acknowledged as Canadian Cattledog Handler of the Year
