GPOESC Specialty Shows July 2010 Recap

catalog cover2010 represented the GPOESC's 35th Anniversary Specialty Shows (1975–2010). The GPOESC Specialty Shows were held Friday, July 23, at the Portland Metropolitan Exposition Center, in conjuction with the Stumptown Classic Cluster. The two Specialties were held back to back, at 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. The events were open to all AKC-registered Old English Sheepdogs. Both morning and afternoon events included Sweepstakes (Puppy Sweeps, Veteran Sweeps & Bred-by Sweeps), Junior Showmanship and Conformation.

There were just under 90 entries divided among the two sweepstakes and conformation shows. Entries came from throughout Oregon, Washington, California and Canada. The two conformation and junior showmanship shows were judged by Karin B. Ashe in the morning and Sandy I. Wheat in the afternoon. A.M. sweepstakes judge was Joan V. Savage and P.M. sweepstakes judge was Barbara Vanword-Thompson. Obedience judge was Pamela A. Weaver.

The A.M. show trophies were ruby colored Scandinavian glass vases etched with a commemorative club logo, and the P.M. trophies were both framed and unframed tiles imprinted with a custom whimsical watercolor by club member Judy Keller. P.M. BOB, BISS received the commemorative tile set into a mohagany jewel box. The beautiful rosettes were once again purchased from Callisto Ribbons and hand made by Terri Packard, who also served as ring steward for both shows.

Our sister club in New South Wales, Australia, (OESC NSW) donated a beautiful sash that was awarded to the PM BOB, BISS winner. A special thanks to OESC NSW for the donation of the sash.

The club hosted a light lunch between the shows along with the annual piccadilly. After the shows many exhibitors, judges and club members enjoyed a no-host dinner and auction at a nearby restaurant.

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 Jeff Menzel, Joanna Smith, Marsha King, Lita Long, Jerry Holcombe and Matt Alston. Also a special thanks to 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: Photos of outside the ring | Photos of inside the ring
