PHOTOS OF GNYHC SPECIALTY 2/11/12
The GNYHC Specialty on February 11th was a wonderful success! We wish to
thank Judge Toby Frisch for judging Best of Breed and Linda Strike for
judging the Sweepstakes. We had a lovely entry! Our two wonderful stewards,
Robert and Dawn Eisele, kept everything moving smoothly. Joan Ambrose,
founding member of the GNYHC and current HCA President, and Linda Strike,
founding member of the Havanese Club of Southern California (and friend of
the GNYHC since it's inception) conducted mentoring for judges interested in
A very big thank you to Pat Ross, our Show Chair! She has made this, our
club's fourth Specialty, so memorable. We thank her for her vision and
wisdom and long hours. And, a big bunch of thanks to our Board members Ann
Barbaccia, Marie Fiore, Mary Cane, and club volunteer Marilyn Shapiro for
their input and participation. Yeah, team!
Following judging the club had a short meeting in the grooming area. After
that it was off to the Cuban restaurant, Guantanamera, where many of us
enjoyed one another's company, ate great food and listened to Bachata!
A splendid, early day that allowed all of us to recoup our energies that
evening and for other's of us to have time to spend with dogs in preparation
for showing at Westminster on the following Monday.
