*.Wade and Cathy invited club members that would like to see or train on their place to contact them.  They have done a lot of work on their grounds.

*If you see Richard Norris, manager of Schmidt Farms, please tell him how much we appreciate him allowing us to use the Schmidt grounds.

*Glen went over the importance of good Marshalls at a Hunt Test.  A Marshall is the liaison between the judge and the handler.  The Marshall can and should assist the judge to make his job easier, and deflect negativity and promote a positive environment. 

*Thank you to Nathan Sloan for going to Katy, Texas and  Port Arthur, Texas, working to evacuate stranded people. Glen and Michael picked up water and Slim Jim’s, and Katelyn got donations from the college to send with Nathan to distribute to those in need.  Nathan worked long hours with little sleep.  We really appreciate the work you did!
