2009 Summer Newletter

  Greetings WATC Members,   Our Annual Spring Walk was held last Sunday, May 31st, on a perfectly beautiful day.  We had 28 people in attendance and 19 dogs.  If any attendees have pictures of the walk, please send them to Sue Reimund (, and she will post them on our website.  Illinois club members Lin and Bob Hartnett and Barbara Brown joined us, and the IL club has graciously invited our members to their upcoming walk.  Details are on our website: You will also find information on the IL Specialty Show at Gray's Lake in this newsletter.  Their Specialty will be held this coming weekend, at a brand new aire-conditioned facility.   Speaking of Specialties, be sure to save the date for our Specialty, which will be held on Saturday, July 25th, at the Waukesha Fairgrounds.  Please start looking for interesting items to donate to the silent auction.  They don't necessarily have to be Airedale-related, but those items seem to be the most popular.  See details below for luncheon information and driving directions.   Welcome to new members, Jeff Cameron and Sue Zimmer.  I have added their information to our Member Directory and will attach the updated version to this newsletter. ~Sue Shannon


Save the date – Saturday, July 25, 2009

 The Airedale Specialty will be held at the Waukesha County Fairgrounds.                                                      

Driving directions:

From I-94:

Take exit #294 (used to be Hwy. J)

Turn south at the exit on Pewaukee Rd.  Go about 1 mile.

Turn west on Northview Rd.  You'll see signs for the Fairgrounds. 

 The Airedales generally show in the morning.  When we get the information on the exact time, we will e-mail a reminder.  Also, the time and Ring number is usually posted in the Milwaukee Journal/Sentinel a day or two before the show.  As in the past, we will have a potluck lunch (that’s the ‘specialty’ of our members), along with fried chicken.  Let's try this new way of dividing up who brings what: 

Members with last names beginning with A - J, bring DESSERT

Members with last names beginning with K - Z, bring SALAD or SIDE DISH 

Start thinking now about auction items to donate.    Donated items can be ANYTHING – nothing is too small.  Dog / Airedale-related or not, hand-made or store-bought…… Gift baskets filled with assorted items have been popular in the past.  Use your imagination!
