Judges Training Scheme, Dachshund Lecture

A big thank you goes out to the following Dachshund Club Members who together with their dogs, attended the Judges Training Scheme, Dachshund lecture last Wednesday.
Val Lingard & Val Bowden (MLH), Brian Cheers (MWH), Sarah & Bev Wheatley (SSH), Gyll Hoyle-Mudie (MWH), Anne Ifield (SSH) and Daryl & Joan Cross (MSH) presented their dogs for the trainee judges to physically study the breed standard points of the Dachshund.
Club member Tanya McDonald conducted the lecture. Having dogs for the trainee judges to “go over” gives them a sound foundation in their studies of our breed. Our Club wishes the trainee judges success for their future studies.

Bunnings BBQ

There is a saying that “many hands make light work”. That was exactly the case on Sunday April 15th 2018 when twelve Club members participated in a very successful fundraising BBQ at the Bunnings Store in Mt Gravatt (Mansfield).
The day started at 8am with a constant stream of customers enjoying the delicious sausages and onions on bread.
These BBQ’s are a great opportunity for Clubs to raise funds for the support of their activities and Bunnings are thanked for their support at these events.
The Dachshund Club would also like to thank John Hansen for arranging the day for our Club. Bev and Adrian Wheatley for preparing the food for the BBQ and the Club members who donated their valuable time sharing the load of cooking, serving and cleaning up after a very successful day. It’s very much appreciated.
