Keepsake trophy box for Scottish Terrier Club of Greater New York Specialty Show trophy by Donald Barcan

In spite of the weather the 2019 STCGNY Specialty was a hit! There were 31 Scotties present, from far and wide! The competition was top notch.

Thanks to our judges Kathi Brown and Ann Marie Holowathy, and to Joan Church our Ring Steward.

Erica Cerny, our Trophy Chairperson did a wonderful job. Donna Rovner, Dee Carlton and Heidi Reilly were on hand to help at the trophy table. Regarding the trophy table, I know that everyone who saw it was struck by the beauty of the amazing wooden keepsake boxes that were handmade by Donald Barcan! Don they are stunning! I've been told that more than one admirer took pictures of them. They were awarded to BOB and BOS. Such talent! Thank you so much for taking the time to create these treasures!

We are so grateful that April and Dan Green once again graciously coordinated our delicious Annual Tailgate Lunch.Thank you for your hard work! Much appreciation to all of our members who provided food, drink and wonderful desserts. Heidi Reilly, Lori Kelly and Susan Finn provided great raffles!

Thanks also to Bill Berry and Jim Dixon, who made sure there was a generator so that there was hot coffee on a cool morning. It was very helpful that Lori Kelly provided a sign pointing all to where the Scottish Terriers would be! To those who wore buttons that the club had ordered stating "ASK ME ABOUT SCOTTISH TERRIERS" thank you for answering questions and explaining ring procedure to newcomers. Those first questions answered with kindness are so important.

Thank you to all of our exhibitors for joining us. Your Scotties are all part of the future of the breed that we love so dearly.

Welcome to Tambre Knox our newest member!

I'm so proud to be a member of this wonderful club. We are at our best when we work as a team! STCGNY wishes to thank Bucks County Kennel Club for their hospitality and especially, thanks to Kathy Ferris for always being available to answer any last minute questions!

I missed being with you all and look forward to next year!   ❤️ Amy Pelle
