GPOESC Specialty Shows July 2009 Recap

coverThe GPOESC Specialty Shows were held Friday, July 17, at the Portland Metropolitan Exposition Center, in conjuction with the Stumptown Classic Cluster. The two Specialties were held back to back, at 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. The events were open to all AKC-registered Old English Sheepdogs. Both morning and afternoon events included Sweepstakes and Conformation.

There were over 60 entries divided among the two sweepstakes and conformation shows. Entries came from throughout Oregon, Washington, California and Colorado. The two conformation shows, judged by Nan Bodine in the morning and Dorothy Christiansen in the afternoon, produced four major wins and finished one dog and one bitch to champion status.

The show was also well attended by many GPOESC club members and OES enthusiasts. The club hosted lunch between the shows, followed by the traditional fundraising piccadilly and auction.

A very special thank-you to all of the members and guests who exhibited, volunteered and supported the shows: Co-chairs Sylvia Lindman and Priscilla Menzel, Specialty Committee Matt Alston, Joanna Smith, Marsha King, Lita Long, Dianne McKee-Rowland and Jeff Menzel. Also a special thanks to Theresa Kamper, Jerry Holcombe and member photographers Ron and Gretchen Hayhurst.

Below is a recap of the AM and PM show winners and judges photos. Also, Ron and Gretchen Hayhurst documented the event, with candid photos of the show participants and action shots posted on the GPOESC Flickr photo page
