The Wenrick Sportsmanship Award was presented to Sarah Lawrence of Chatterbox Toys. For some exhibitors it was a long and treacherous drive home due to tremen- dous flooding. Others had canceled or delayed flights. But we are dog show people and we shall endure. Get Your Kicks on Route 66’ But don’t forget the rain boots. The 2018 ASTC National will be held in Oklahoma City.
