Future Meetings

  • Next Meeting: Beach Meeting
    Saturday August 9 at 1:00pmNote from Larry.
    We are looking at arrival at Brian Booth State Park (formerly Ona Beach) loosely between 11:30 and 12:00 noon. Directions: From the intersection of Hwy. 20 and Hwy. 101 in Newport, go south over the bridge for seven miles. The State Park will be on your right. Just over the bridge and just past the stop light is the South Beach Fish Market with a very good takeout menu (attached).I will have Oregon Coast Aquarium tickets for you so, following the picnic, you will be able to take advantage of this very wonderful Oregon Coast attraction. If interested, Betty and I can give a personal tour

The scheduled meetings for the rest of the year are: October 25th, November 23rd, December 13th.

The October Meeting will be a Halloween Costume Party and Super Pet Competition. There will be prizes for Best Costume and Best Group/Dog & Owner Costume and Best Dog Costume. Let’s have some fun with our dogs! The meeting will be at the Englishes barn.

November will be the CGC evaluation. We are still looking for a location. The meeting should be in the Salem/Albany area.

The December meeting is our annual Christmas Party and gift exchange at the Englishes.

We have no official September meeting schedule. I am offering my house, if members want to get together for a craft day. Please let me know.



    The club would like to express our sincere condolences to Jeff and Debbie Kirsch on the loss of their Bailey, “Just My Bailiwick” March 16, 2005 – July 27, 2014.
