Mar-Dec 2020 COVID-19 “Lockdown”
Monday 9th March WDKOC Championship Show Day. We had another very successful conformation show event. Alicia was Show Manager again this year and A La Carte provided sponsorship for prizes. As it turned out, we were were extremely lucky. The next week ‘COVID-19 Lockdown’ began!
16 Feb 2020 Club Rooms Airbrush Makeover “With the help of a number of wonderful people at the Warragul Dog Club, the airbrushed images were attached to the wall today. They are of actual dogs that are in the club and show some of the activities this fantastic club offers and supports. Obedience, agility, herding, to name a few and as you can see are really inclusive with regards to size and breed.
My thanks also to Cheryn Martin from Airbrush Venturi Advanced group who worked with me on two of the images. All the dogs are cut out of aluminium composite panel, the images airbrushed with automotive base coat and finished with 2 pack clear.“ ~ Sue Osborn, Visual Storyteller.
February 2020. Les purchased and installed the pump so the system is now ready to be set up for attaching a flat hose from the piping to a ‘walking’ sprinkler. Good to go at last!!! Nearly. Meanwhile, particular thanks go to Les for being responsible for most of the hard yakka in some terrible weather. Thanks to Ian who (theoretically) could have chosen to not get so involved with the momentous task of moving and positioning the 50,000Kl tank on such a horribly hot day. They were ‘helped’ by an audience at the end of the Dog Club Social Walk coffee time, and by a couple of these folk giving a few suggestions along with a bit of muscle and moral support.
February 2020: Tank Grant Acquittal Complete
January 2020 “The Folly” (our new water tank) was delivered and installed; the fruit of our Baw Baw Shire Council Community Development Grant and the labour and ingenuity of Les and his brother, Ian, who kindly agreed to help Les on a very hot day with a very large task. “The Folly” gained its nickname for being large and turreted, and requiring more problem solving than any of us expected. The project has involved various club members: applying for the grant, clearing rubbish and moving the big bins, laying a foundation, digging trenches, laying pipes, filling in trenches, positioning the tank after it was deposited in front of the container (leaving a ‘crop circle’ in its wake) and connecting it to the input and output pipes. And there’s more! A pump is ‘in the pipeline’.
15 August 2019 BBSC Minor Capital Works Grant for a water tank. On behalf of WDKOC, Tresna and Les received a certificate awarding the club a Baw Baw Shire Council Minor Capital Works Grant towards purchasing and installing a 50,000Kl water tank to help drought-proof the dog club grounds. Thank you to the team at BBSC Community Development Grants.
