Next event: Specialty at Indio

The upcoming Christmas party has been cancelled. So our next club event is our supported entry and designated specialty at Indio, Ca. on January 4 & 5, 2018. One hour after best of breed on Friday will be our club meeting, held at The Tack Room. This has proven to be a popular place the last couple of years, with food and drinks available and a nice ambiance on the patio area. Here’s hoping for lovely weather for the weekend.

Happy holidays to all!
