COMMENTS FROM THE B.C.O.C. SPECIALTY SHOW COMMITEE
- reported by Cheryl Egerton

It just seems time flies and here I am writing as promised a review of our 2011 National.

Our BCOC National Specialty 2011 hosted an excellent entry of 47 basenjis. Included in this was a great entry of altered, BBEx, and a sweeps entry. Also there was a great showing of fun issues: ie: head, tail, coat, etc.

The German Shorthaired Pointer club agreed to pay $200 toward our specialty tent. Wynn, Kathy, and I put the tent up on the Thursday only to discover that the rings had been moved to the other side of the tent. It took a fair bit of time to re-organize this.

Our site was on the east side of the Saint John River, with rolling farm land flanking us, providing a very peaceful and fun show-site. Eukanuba was our sponsor and our main prizes were made and provided by Jane Williams, a great artist. The runners-up received boxes made by Kathy, in which we put gas $$, leashes, coupons, and lots of dog treats. Eukanuba was very generous and everyone came away with something.

Our exhibitors came from the U.S., Western Canada, Ontario, Nova Scotia, Quebec, and of course New Brunswick; we were well-represented.

Originally, Saturday night was to be the Sweeps, followed by the AGM. And Sunday was to be our specialty judging; however, Mother Nature had some input: Saturday was literally rained out and miserable. The sweeps judge was fine with a postponement, since the dogs would have been covered with mud and water. So our AGM was rescheduled at the London, Ontario LKC, October 14-16th.

However, Sunday dawned Ďbright and sunnyí and the gods smiled on our bís and our breed judging was completed with not too many setbacks for the day.

Judges: the all-breed and breeder judge was John Forbes from Australia. The Sweeps judge was Ms. Marlene Corey. Watching both our judges, I was impressed with their patience with the puppies and exhibitors, as well as with their wonderful sense of humor. One comment I heard was that of the great display of sportsmanship, win or lose. Great job everyone, and thanks to our judges.

Later Sunday evening we had our banquet at the Romada Inn, which was very successful. The Ramada provided a buffet and a private table for our auction. Food was on time and varied. One negative comment was about our auction being too long; however, we had a wonderful list of items and made a good deal of money from them. Auctions are fun and Simone Gaudetís husband proved a great auctioneer! He tirelessly auctioned every items to its fullest.

On this site also was a four-day all-breed event, thus giving us a chance to finish or at least put points on some of the dogs. Thank you for your entry, and come again to Atlantic Canada.



BCOC NATIONAL AUCTION 2011
- reported by Kathie Upton

This year the donations towards the auction were out-standing. We had some wonderful artwork and jewelry donated to us by our Sweeps judge, Marlene Cory, as well as a pin from Simone Gaudet, stained glass from Nancy Albert, a life-size wire Basenji from our president, Cheryl Egerton, who also contributed towards some of the artwork. There were Basenji-decorated items from Barb Baddick of Kritternkraft, who also did the wonderful mugs which we offered for sale. There was also loads of other items from Christine Kempster, Rose Thomson, and a host of other members. This year we did something a little different by purchasing and framing some of the artwork.

Our auctioneer was Dave Gaudet assisted by Simone Gaudet, who kept him moving along. Bidding was lively and fun. In the end, when everything was tallied up, the auction netted $1723,50. I believe this is the best we have ever done on an auction and I would like to thank all who helped to make it possible.
