Our Sieger Show was a hit this year on October 4th & 5th, 2008. We opened our show with the Pledge of Allegiance recited by Mirabelle, Johanna & Megan, followed by the Star Spangled Banner sung by 10 year old Megan Messina.

Once again we had lovely weather, warm enough for the humans, but cool enough for our Rottweilers. Bruce unloaded his truck with our supplies from our NERF shed early in the morning and the tent was erected with the expertise of Barnum & Bailey crew, and the ring set up. It was our 4th Sieger show and we had 80 entries, a good count considering the expense of gas and hotels during these days that we are tightening our belts. We had many Owners & Dogs come from other states, and again our friends from Canada, whom have supported us every year.

Once again we had a good turn out of helpers from our membership. We also had non-member volunteers. Steve Wolfson loaned us his sound system and head phones, it was a lot easier for the judge to announce her critiques. Steve gave an informative PowerPoint presentation at our judges dinner. Our Judge was Cathy Thompson who managed to stay on her feet for two long days, and do a great job of critiquing.

Noreen Rusuto did all the typing for both days and proof read all critiques herself, for which we are most grateful. She volunteered for next year also. Cheryl was our chief Steward and kept our ring running in perfect precision. Roberta took in all the entries and entered them in the Computer and also completed the catalogue along with Margaret and her typing skills. Whew! that's a lot of work. Scotti & Pamela took care of our Ways & Means table and sold tickets for our raffle.

Margaret and Maureen did a great job choosing the trophies. They were lovely and stylish. Let us not forget the unbelievable Hospitality Bags. Maureen puts together the best gifts and goodies which every entrant looks forward to receiving. Margaret and her sister made sure that all entrants had their armbands and were recorded. Tracey Benson was our photographer and did an outstanding job of getting pictures of every dog and formatted them on a CD. Each dog has at the least three poses. I suggest purchasing a CD, and you will have a nice collection of Rottweilers to observe.

We had our Rottweiler Rescue booths. Old friends and long time members, Pete & Leslie Maddocks visited, as did Jennie Burkhardt. What would our show be without food. Our chefs George & Jay had all the cooking under control, and cooked to perfection.

We are already starting to plan our next year's Show. We already have pledges for donations. Will you pledge a donation and volunteer a couple hours of your time???
