Meal Reservation Form
The Westie Tent – We will have our own private tent on the Trenton show grounds adjacent to our own ring. RV parking is available near the tent. No advanced reservations are required. If we haven’t thought of everything, we tried and more surprises are in store.
Major for Reserve – In a historic move the AKC is now allowing a three-point major for Reserve Winners Dog and Reserve Winners Bitch at one national specialty a year. The WHWTCA has selected this Roving to be that show for 2013. We’re excited and hope you are too.
WHWTCA VERSATILE DOG COMPETITION
The West Highland White Terrier Club of Northern New Jersey regrets that mention of the VERSATILE DOG COMPETITION was omitted from the announcement regarding the 2013 Roving that appeared on page 10 in the Winter issue of Westie Imprint.
The 2013 Roving weekend will indeed include competition for the Versatile Dog Award, so you are invited, no urged to participate.
This wonderful Roving will include two days of Agility trials, three days of Obedience and Rally trials and a one-day Earthdog trial (rats, you’ve been warned). Add three days of Specialties and an additional supported entry (with Sweepstakes) along with all the social events we all love at WHWTCA Specialties, and that adds up to a gathering with something for us all. Please be sure to join us.
ATTENTION!! Historical Roundtable at the Roving ATTENTION!!
Attention, all Westie lovers who will be attending the upcoming National Roving Specialty in New Jersey. Have you ever had questions about the breed that you would have liked to have gotten answers for, but didn't know who to ask or where to start looking for those answers? Ever wonder about all those Champions in your pedigrees and what they looked like, and how that affects how your own dogs look today? Then come to the Roundtable on Friday evening, May 3rd at 6:30 p.m. at the Westin Princeton Forrestal, host hotel of the Roving, and find out from some of the greats in our breed. We will have an outstanding panel that includes Mrs. Barbara Keenan from Wishing Well Kennels, the WHWTCA's longest term member at over 60 years, who owned one of only two ever Westies to win BIS at Westminster. Mr. Michael Collings from Purston Kennels will be with us to discuss the greats he bred in England, many of them making their way to the United States and still influence the breed today. Tom and Billye Ward of the Donnybrook Kennel will be here to talk about their outstanding kennel and the greats they successfully bred. And moderating the event and speaking about his own long time kennel and the dogs he bred and imported, and continues to actively breed, will be Mr. Greg Shively of the Skerryvore Kennel, who is also a great historian in his own right. They will be gathered in one spacious and beautiful room,the seating will be limited to 75 people. The Terrace View Room at the Westin is located on the first floor of the host hotel. This panel will be assembled to discuss all things Westie, the past and the future of the breed, with over 200 years combined knowledge and experience of breeding and owning great Westies. There is no charge for this event and NO LIMIT to how many can attend.
