We are resolute in advocating good sportsmanship.
As many of you know Charlie Gann stepped down as president this year. Many of you
don't know me, my name is Chris Fuqua, and I live in Lake George, CO, which is 35
miles west of Colorado Springs. I am a retired paramedic with too much time on my
hands and find myself wanting to do more with my 5 Scotties. It will be a long road for
me as Charlie has done such a wonderful job these past few years. I will find it very
difficult to fill her shoes.
With no time to waste, the board and I are already working on this year’s Specialty for
August 14. Our theme has taken the shape of “the Dog Days of Summer.” We have
enlisted our artist friend from Romania, Valeria Moldovan, again who gave us the great
Mardi Gras Scottie to work with last year. She’s sent us some fun art to inspire us in our
plans. Mark the date, lots of details will be shared in the next few months.
Like with many dog clubs today, I know we have challenging times ahead of us. Our
membership numbers have dropped, we have a lack of interest in general participation,
and members can’t find time in their busy schedules to make meetings.
My goal this year is to bring in more new members, to make it a club we can all be
proud of, to have a successful Specialty and dinner, and to let Colorado know the
Scottish Terrier is not forgotten. I hope with the help of our board and many of you, we
can make this a prosperous year while having a good time doing it.
Beginning with the annual picnic this year, I’d like to ask everyone to join us on Sunday,
May 31st for a day of fun and great food, and remember to bring the Scotties!! We will
have more information in the next newsletter and email reminders too.
I would like to hear from any members who have any ideas that they’d like to share
with me. Please feel free to call me at any time. Thank you for the honor of being
president and may all go as planned for an exciting new year!
Greeting and we welcome you !
