Master National General Meeting

At 2:45 pm, President Gloria Mundell called us back to order. Awards were given to Jeff Oakes, the General Manger of Flint Oak Lodge and Larry Kimble, Hunt Test Chairman for all their hard work and dedication. The Master National Board of Directors was recognized one more time. It was announced that there are 159 Master National Clubs and 118 were represented and that made a quorum. The minutes from the last meeting were approved and distributed. The Treasurer's report was given by Frank Barton. The 2014 Master National will be hosted by the Marin Retriever Club and held in Corning, California from October 9-19, 2014. Laura Judd will be the Hunt Test Chairman. A report was given on the Women's Challenge Trophy. The Vision Commitee gave the next report. This committee is made up of the President, the Past President and the Incoming President. This group meets with the AKC once a year. The discussion surrounded AKC Advanced Judging Seminars which will be held in each region and paid for by the MNRC.
