President's Report

Hello All,

I would like to thank those of you who attended our AGM. It looked like it was going to be a non-event whilst waiting for people to turn up and make up the quorum. Eventually we had the numbers and we were able to go ahead.

It was Great to see our Patron, Noel Padgam attend.

The past 12 months has been a challenge, one Customer Service Officer leaving and another one coming on board. Thankyou Nicolle for your service for the past 12 months and thank you Barbara for taking on the job.

We have had a busy time with our irrigation being upgraded. It was being maintained by Sarah Gordon and her father but it was becoming harder to maintain. We applied for a grant and the result was that we now have a completely new irrigation system. The result of that is we are well on the way to having a beautiful green arena. Our main entrance was moved a double gate installed and the front fence replaced.

We had several mahogany trees removed from over the office. Luckily done prior to the Cyclone otherwise we would have been wiped out. With the advent of Cyclone Marcus our new front fence was damaged so had to be replaced along with the other fences.

I would like to thank a number of people and businesses who went above and beyond in doing work before and after the Cyclone on our behalf.

Sarah Gordon, Caroline Camilleri, Sue Dwyer, All Hours Group, Rural Grass n Weed Solutions, Silver Linings Electrical, AII Round Tree Services, Scotty's Fencing the Grounds Committee and Nikki Jones.

Forgive me if I have left anyone out, your help has been appreciated.

I would, on behalf of everyone I would like to congratulate Carol Beckett on becoming the Territory's first home grown All Breeds Judge. It has taken a lot of hard work and travelling to Adelaide to reach that level.

Thanks, must go to Dogs SA for allowing our trainees to take part in their Judges Training Scheme.

I also congratulate Sandy lrlam for being approved by National Bull Terrier Council Australia to award ROM points. This is a great honor.

One of our members from Alice Springs who came onto Council at the AGM volunteered to take on the position of Treasurer, thank you Clare Flattum.

Finally, I would ask that members volunteer to fill any vacancies we now have after the election. Without a full Council we find it difficult to function, please come forward and help us.

Thank You

Cheers, Mel


Could members please not exercise their dogs on the training grounds. Instead, we encourage members to exercise dogs in the enclosed area immediately outside the front gate, otherwise known as the members car park
