The BLU board met by a telephone conference on July 11th. The 2016 national show was discussed, and a site selected for the 2018 show, pending verification from the show committee that the site is willing to host the show. More information will follow once plans are firmed up.
The secretary report showed 74 memberships. The 2016 board elections are coming up in the fall, with a deadline of October 25th to provide a bio to the secretary. Only paid memberships as of October 1st are eligible to vote and to run for the board.
Youth committee chair Joan Chapin would like ideas on how to reach our junior members, and to get more youth involved in the breed. She says that they get lots of questions from youth at shows, indicating that our charismatic and unusual breed is of interest.
The show committee chair, Margaret VanCamp, is working on a written guideline for new members on how to fit BFL for show. She also plans to make a video on the process.
