As the Christmas season draws nigh, we would like to take this time to thank each and every member for making
the Southern Alberta Working Herding Dog Association a wonderful club!
May the spirit of Christmas unite us
and make 2010 the greatest!
We turn TWENTY this coming year!
Merry Christmas from your SAWHDA Executive.

Just a quick note to let you know that we are holding a party at the Lee residence, 359 Canyon Crescent, in Pincher Creek, on December 19th starting at 6:00 p.m.. Guests are to provide an appetizer and a $5 - $10 gift from their house for the Chinese Gift Exchange. Each person is responsible for bringing their own alcoholic beverage as well.
Those who are travelling from afar and who wish to stay overnight are invited to stay at Mary Ellen's place, at Russell and Marilyn's place, or at Darryl and Judi's place (if you aren't allergic to cats) rather than drive home.
We always have a good time when SAWHDA members get together so hope to see you there.
I am too excited. Three more sleeps until Christmas holidays!!! Yay!
CGN stuff has been sent away so certificates should follow soon.
Thank you to all members who provided 'stuff' for the garage sale. Despite the miserable weather, we managed to raise

We have between now and March to come up with six dogs that can barrel race, 6 dogs that can cart (various stages of ability) 8 dog/handler teams to be part of a drill team (done to Rally commands) at least eight people to be part of our square dance team, and three dog/handler teams to do an actual complete performance of freestyle dance. All participants must be willing to commit to two full days of performances at the Calgary Pet Expo, March 27th and 28th. Participants will be responsible for their own accommodations, meals and transportation to and from the venue in exchange for a great time!!! If you are a member of SAWHDA and have the time and inclination to be part of this cool venture, please email Judi at firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know which performance events you and you dog would like to join.
We will be arranging for Calgary folks to practice evenings in the city and then join the rest of us at Cowley for progress checks and dress rehearsals for everyone on some weekends in Cowley in order to assure a smooth performance by all.
Mark your new year calendars for fun!
