information is gathered.
Discussion turned to the possibility of hosting the ADGA
Convention. Bev mentioned the large commitment of animals for the judging
that is required – 100 – 110. Members present decided to visit with
others during the show season to secure a rough count of individuals who would
commit their animals before actually sending information to the ADGA Convention
Committee. At the Wyoming State Fair on August 14, a informal meeting
will be held to discuss the findings. On Sept 7 WDGA Board of Directors
will hold a meeting to decide if the bid from WDGA will be sent to ADGA.

Fuzzy Show. Motion passed. Karen will look into this possibility
and report to the board. After discussion, a motion by Bev, 2nd
by LaDonna to change the WSF awards to just BIS and BUIS with the specialty
taking care of those awards. WDGA will continue to offer the

will be made with the Buck Frenzy that is taking place in Missouri this month
and see what can be learned.
The remainder of
the meeting then turned to the possible change of the show site for the Fuzzy Show
from Cheyenne to Torrington. After a
long back and forth discussion of pros and cons, Judy made the motion to move
the Fuzzy show from Cheyenne to Torrington.

Plans will proceed
to make this change. Because of this
decision, the Fuzzy Show Committees will be changed and reports were not
necessary. New business of considering

focus turns to the new location.
WSF awards were suggested to be just the Best in Show for both seniors and

most animals were suggested. A vote was not taken on this suggestion.
