On Saturday, October 1, 2022, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club of Southern New England held its annual Fall Sanctioned Specialty Match at the Spencer Fairgrounds in Spencer, MA.
It was a cold, drizzly day in Spencer, with worse weather predicted which kept many away. For those of us adventurous enough to attend, the day was filled with friendship and meeting new Cavalier owners.
We welcomed guests Jason and Sherry Worden with their sweet Ruby boy Howard.
It takes many people each doing a piece of the event to make it come together. Thank you, Kathy Tiedemann, for chairing the Match this year, and for doing such an efficient job of it! Thanks to our Match judge, Sheryl Skidmore, for her wonderful judging of both the conformation and the fun classes; she was so good with all the dogs and helped the baby puppies enjoy their experience.
Many thanks to all who made this a successful day: Our Ring Steward, Peggy Kenney, and our ever present ribbon and prize coordinator, Cathy Coffman for their ringside assistance, and to Stephanie Abraham for her Match photography - taking all the winners and candid photos. This year we had two new helpers at the registration table, Justine Marsh and Katie McMenimen, who did a fabulous job keeping the entries in proper order. Special thanks to Anne O'Reilly, our past Match Chair, who willingly mentors everyone! Extra thanks to John Obermeier who gathered all the supplies, tables, etc., from the storage unit and brought them to us and then had to turn around and bring them all back.
We really appreciate all the hard work before and after the show from all of our members.
