Showsight November 2022


3. Can you please provide a brief history of your club? Our club is one of four all-breed clubs in the state of Utah. It is a small but mighty group of volunteers who are active in all things dog-related. 4. How are the following accommodated at your show/clus- ter: Parking; Grooming; Bathing; Hospitality; Vendors; Public Education? Parking: Our show is located at an Equestrian Center, with RV hookups. We have our own Parking Committee, which is chaired by a club member and consists of additional volun- teers, including handlers who help with parking during the event. Our day parking is free. Last year, we offered premium day parking close to the building, but it was a hassle finding enough volunteers to police that area. So, this year, we did not offer that. Grooming: In past years, we have had reserved grooming. During COVID, we offered free outdoor grooming with power. This year, in our new show site, we were able to provide reserved grooming in the stalls at the Equestrian Cen- ter; both interior stalls and outside stalls, with parking. Both barns had power available. Bathing: The Horse Barn had a bathing area on the end of the stalls that was utilized as a bath- ing station. Hospitality: Because we were in a covered horse arena this year, we were able to rent drapes and enclose a por- tion of the arena’s viewing area with tables and chairs for our hospitality. This was a challenge, but our Hospitality Chair- man was able to convert this corner of the arena into a delight- ful, cozy atmosphere; very private, with an area for judges, club members, show personnel, and stewards to sit, relax, and have breakfast or lunch each day. We catered all of our lunches and

1. What is the name of your show/cluster? We are technically not an official cluster, because our five days of shows consist of two days of Group Shows (Toy, Terrier, Working, and Non-Sporting) followed by three days of all- breed shows. So, we refer to ourselves as the Bonneville Basin Kennel Association (BBKA) Series of shows. Not too catchy, but it gets the ideas across. 2. Where are your shows held? When? Historically, our shows have been held in Farmington, Utah, at the Legacy Park Event Center. Because of a construction project at the Park this year, we had to move our show to the Bastian Agricultural Center in South Jordan. Both are suburbs of Salt Lake City. The Bastian Agricultural Center is an Eques- trian Center, and we held our shows in the Indoor Arena on packed dirt. We are held on the 37th week of the calendar, usually the second or third week of September.
