ARBA show in San Diego--anyone go?

Post by Pegno » Tue, 19 Mar 1996 04:00:00



Hi, just wondering if anyone who went to the ARBA show in San Diego this
weekend (March 15-17) could care to comment.

How was the show?
...attendance of dogs (vs prior years)
...attendance of people (vs prior years).

And, perhaps most important of all...who were the ARBA people running it?
As you may know, there now appears to be two sets of people, and that was
one of the problems for us rare breed folk.

Looking forward to the feedback!

I wasn't there, but my sources say ARBA claims 140+ dogs.  Actual count from
the volunteer show secretary is 50 max!  Prior years have been 150+.  Show was
won by Tush, the Black Russian; all other classes by Anatolians.  The show was
very late (11:00) in starting due to lack of organization by ARBA.  Some judges
quit in disgust on Sunday...

Poor at tournement, worse the next two days.

ARBA is now being run by John Slack and his brother Bob.  Remaining board
members are Wilmer Johnson, Ermine, Howard Cohen.  Anita, Janet, Betty, Rick,
Del and possibly Beth are out.  

If you're interested in showing at quality shows this spring instead of Cherry
Blossom, I suggest you attend the Pine Barrens/Tri State cluster.  These are
well run shows and attendence (competition!) is high.  Remember, as FCI has
banned any of their judges from judging in the US, all of these shows will
be on an equal footing as far as judges selection.

P.S. What type of rare breeds do you own?

Gosh, I didn't ask for their names!

I believe there was a problem with working out who had pre-paid their
entries, to whom, and whose checks had not been cancelled. This
confusion led to a 2.5 hour delay in judging on Saturday morning.
