2nd Annual AHCA Specialty Club Contest

Which club is the most outrageously creative???

THE AFGHAN HOUND CLUB OF AMERICA TOGETHER WITH MIMI & LATANE BAKER, present a creative competition between Specialty Clubs. Judging will take place at the Awards Banquet at the Greeley National - BOB and BOS will be awarded. Our esteemed President, Russ Hastings, and esteemed Judges- Jay Hafford and JoAnne Buehler - will preside over the Afghan Hound cut outs - maybe there will be a run off between entries .... ?

Who can decorate their Afghan Hound cut out and win most OUTRAGEOUSLY CREATIVE SPECIALTY CLUB in show? Send in a sketch of your design (SIZE APPROXIMATELY 16 x 16) and Mimi will draw it and Latane will cut it out. Order your Afghan Hound cut out from Mimi and Latane and decorate them. We have such creative members! Then get them to the National early in the week to be on display for a Silent Auction and for the judging at the Awards Banquet. Once the winners have been announced, the Silent Auction will be closed with the proceeds going to the AHCA. 50% of BOB & BOS will be returned to the winning Clubs - let's see which Club will win the most creative & outrageous Specialty Club contest!

NEW IN 2018
EACH CLUB CAN SEND A SKETCH TO MIMI OF THEIR 16 x 16 DESIGN TO BE CUT OUT.
IF YOU DON'T HAVE A SKETCH MIMI WILL PROVIDE A 16 x 16 DESIGN (ONE DESIGN).

Latane uses high quality wood, cuts out the design and sands each before shipping them naked to the Specialty Club that orders them.
