We also had a cash donation of $50 to the General Trophy fund, from Gordon Gilliam, giving a total of $802.00 towards the 2017 National Meet. (Correction - this was to be used for the 2016 General Trophy fund, so offsets this year's National expenses - thank you again, Gordon Gilliam!)

Congratulations to all the winning bidders and a huge thank you to all who donated for the Silent Auction!

It is great to see that our members and others purchased items in both auctions. I am happy to see that we were able to sell everything that was donated. The money that was raised will be put to good use.

I think that this was a  great way to handle the Silent Auctions. Not only did it help the club raise money, but it gave those of us who couldn't attend a way to participate. We were not able to attend the show, but we were able to participate in the Silent Auctions. We really appreciate all of the hard work that our leaders did to make the National Show and the Silent Auctions successful.

We are looking forward to next year's National Show and Silent Auction. We plan on donating and participating in next years Silent Aucation whether we are able to attend the show or not. We would like to ask other breeders to consider donating to the Silent Auction next year.

Be Blessed,
Ernie Haire

 I would totally support doing this again next year. In fact, I hope it becomes a new tradition.

But.. One year, I might turn it over to someone else so I can bid, too. ;)

It was so great to see a good result for the silent auction;  I was so pleased to be able to participate both as a bidder (got what I wanted :) ) and being able to donate as well.  Like Ernie said, it gave all of us that couldn't be there a chance to help in some way. Hope we do this every year....I can always find something I just have to bid on and will be more than willing to donate as well.  Thanks Susan, Jean and everybody that worked so hard to get this done.  We appreciate you.
