Painesville UARC Specialty

The UARC Specialty at Painesville went off well. We didn't have as many entrants as we would have liked, Pam Barnes got started late and was en-route, others had previous commitments, but we still had 29 entries and made a small profit for the club.

No Giants were entered, and I had the only Satin. Nancy James took BOB and BOS English, and Tina Vance took BOB and BOS French, plus BIS!

It was a real pleasure getting to know Maureen Varvir better. She wrote for the NE Ohio Open show, and helped me write for the LGR&CC, Wool-A-Rama, and UARC Specialty shows. She's a very nice lady, and her English doe had a phenomenal coat, she swept the BOB English in the other shows.

I also got to meet Barb Gaul, a very nice lady and fairly new breeder who has French and Satins.

There was a horse show going on next door, so there was plenty of visiting back and forth, and we may have sparked some new interest in rabbit breeding. :)

Luke's litter arrived while we were at the show, 7 babies, all alive and snug in a perfectly constructed nest. There *might* be a dilute in the litter. There are at least 3 brokens, and colors appear to be blacks, chocolates, and torts.

WOOHOO - save me a solid. :^)

Congrats to everyone who showed - we seem to be stuck on the number 29, huh?

Sure thing, Lisa! We'll have better numbers next year, I'm sure!

Hi Jan,
It was good getting to know you, too. I am determined to master the writing thing. Next time I'll conquer the control sheet!
Glad to hear the UARC made a profit.
