A CERF EYE CLINIC was held on site with Dr. Martin Buissieres.......
on Saturday, September 19th, from 9am to 4pm.
Description of the Show Facilities: One of the largest indoor spaces in Canada (4 full-size soccer fields). There was ample ringside space for grooming and crating indoors with air conditioning....plus space for grooming and crating in our own BCOC hospitality section. “Dog sitting duties” were shared so one could go eat or take a bathroom break without worry. The show gave us a large ring for our Specialty so the dogs had ample space to move around. Extra tables were provided for trophies, potluck lunch, etc., with restaurant/pub on site, upstairs. Tim Hortons and McDonalds next door, both were open 24/7. RV’s could park around the arena and had full water and electrical hook-ups.

Funds raised from the Sponsorship Lists were used to acquire the ribbons and prizes given for the classes and any of the other expenses related to the National. Your support and contributions were appreciated and essential to the success of this event.
A scrumptious menu was enjoyed by all
In a private room upstairs.
Here was the menu...........
Soup: cream of carrot, or butternut squash
Main: choice of
(a.) stuffed chicken breast with mushrooms and prosciutto in a red wine sauce, or
(b.) cannelloni with ricotta and spinach
Sides: roasted potatoes, seasonal vegetables, arugula salad with strawberries and almonds; caesar salad, brocolli (no bacon, so vegetarians can have it), and chickpea salad
Dessert: chocolate mousse topped with cookie crumble in a shot glas, or apple pie
We had set a time of 4:00 p.m. for the AGM on Saturday, September 19th. It was held in the basenji grooming area. This allowed us sufficient time to discuss all pertinent matters before dinner.
