Building upon the success of our previous drafting trial, C&P GSMD Club is pleased to announce that we will be hosting a 2nd drafting trial this year. The dates will be November 12th and 13th and the location will be the same… the Collins Farm in Mt. Airy, MD. More details will follow to include premiums, programs, flyers, etc. You can always see the most current information on the “Events” page of our website. We look forward to see you there and seeing the time and training everyone has put into their dogs on the course!
C&P GSMD Club is having a party with our pooches! Historic Old Towne Alexandria has a plethora of Potomac River Cruises and on every Thursday in the summer, they have one that you can bring you dog with you! Additionally… nothing says hanging out with friends like sharing a pint. Following the cruise there will be a social gathering outdoors at a local pub. Click on the Events page for more details.
C&P GSMD Club hosted their first Drafting Trial on May 14 & 15, 2011 at the Collins Farm in Mt. Airy, MD and what a HUGE success it was. Of 11 entries on both days, 7 teams earned a leg or title on each day. We had new Novice titles, new Open titles, and legs earned towards Master titles. Additionally, there were two brace teams participating. One earned a leg towards their Master title and the other earned their Open title. C&P’s very own Mary Jo Rasmussen and Huck Bothner were our expert judges and did a fantastic job on top of educating many people about the rules and competition. We had many swissys present and we had a great Berner compete as well. People traveled anywhere from down the driveway to 8+ hours away to compete. The weather was making us a bit worried, but for the most part, it was perfect drafting weather and the temps stayed down and the rain was minimal. C&P wants to thank all the volunteers who helped in the ring and as stewards. We couldn’t have done it without you. Pictures are posted on C&P’s facebook page. For a direct link, please click here.

So… in an effort to make things more efficient with regards to keeping C&P Members and interested parties up to date, I have built in a new functionality to our club’s website. Whenever a new article, post, etc. is put onto the club’s website, there will be an automatic post on the C&P Facebook page. For example… when I post on the website the April Picture of the Month (please send submissions to me btw), it will automatically post a link on the C&P Facebook page for people to see. Same goes if I post a flyer for an upcoming event. Hopefully this will increase visibility into our club’s activities and doings and keep people involved.. If you have any comments, please let me (Kris) know.
