Mentorship has it's rewards. "Coaching" is it the next  level. 



I think this may be the first post I have seen from Jack, and he hits it on 
 the head.
 
Most people now know I have been encouraging a young lady, (9 when she  
started, and now 10), with tons of talent, Summer, to show dogs. Her family  
had joined the Long Beach Club and at the last show brought the grill and  
arranged the food. For the past few years all of us old folk, (read foogies) 
had  given that up.  It just seemed like too much work.
 
There is an amazing feeling to watch the smile on Summer's face, to see  
Cindy, Bill Basu, Sharlonna, and so many others step up to encourage her, and 
to  give her suggestions.
 
What is interesting about Jack's post, is that it is almost exactly what  
Jimmy said at the board meeting. Maybe we have to move out of what we were  
doing, handling, and into a new aspect, judging, to realize what is  needed.
 
I have a challenge to everyone. I have decided that for the Reno club, I  
would send in my membership fee, and another membership fee, to donate to  
someone who wants to join.  Dave will decide.  Let's do that with the  parent 
club too.  Also, everyone join the Reno club. It is the biggest  little dog 
club in America.  Be proud to be a member, and just contact  David.  
Membership gets you a free pass to enter all the casino's in Reno.  They won't 
even 
ask so long as you are a member. You just walk through the door.  It is 
amazing that they just somehow seem to know.
 
Encourage just one person. I will tell you, I never knew what a reward it  
can be to see a new person that enthused about showing and be sure to say 
hello  to Summer. She is still grinning ear to ear when Bobby Kindy called her 
by  name.
