Hopefully everyone has received the writeups for the people and dogs for the 2017 Hall of Fame and have mailed in their ballots back to Hounds and Hunting. Please remember you are to vote for two people and two dogs for your vote to count. The cut off date is March 15, 2018. If you haven't received, please contact Russ Arend
It is that time of year when we will be collecting the 2018 ABBA dues; and there are some that have already mailed their dues in. The next renewal will be 4/1/2019 for those that have paid and will be paying. We will start at the Midwestern and this year we are giving a bag so you can carry your necessities/essentials. Dues are $30 for an individual, $45 for a couple and mail to Peggy Arend, 16115 N. State Rd. 121, Macclenny, FL 32063. If there are any changes to your current address/information, please let us know so we can stay updated. You can pull the membership list on line by going into www.myabba.net to see the current information on file when you click on the ABBA Membership link. We thank Diane Price for doing the web site.
Remember this will be the first year for the Derby License Trials. You can get 1 Win and 40 Points toward your Field Champion Title. Continue your campaign throughout the federations and this year ABBA is providing $500 to each class Winner, which will be presented in October. We thank the individual contributors who made this incentive possible. We hope you'll support your federations and enjoy the great socialization that goes on at each federation.
President, Russ Arend
