WELCOME to 2014! We have finally wrapped up 2013 with the recent Award Banquet to recognize the many achievements of last years’ members. It was a great evening of fun, food, great people, and awesome awards. A complete photo spread will be in the March/April issue of Pacific Showcase magazine so be sure to check that out when it arrives in your mailbox! And as always, a HUGE THANK YOU to the many sponsors and supporters of the CJLA Award program. It is truly rewarding to see so many young people and families have great experiences with the association. This is what CJLA was meant to be, and it is because of everyone’s support that we are able to grow and improve and keep going year after year.
For those who were unable to come to the banquet, we want to get your awards and packets to you. To help defray some of the mailing cost, we are asking for a small $5.00 donation so we can ship packages. All the awards were personalized with the division and placing and date. Some really neat awards were given out – metal laser-cut mirrors, frames and clocks, as well as personalized award jackets and other one-of-a-kind items. We also have awesome CJLA t-shirts for every member. If you did not get your awards or t-shirts at the banquet, PLEASE contact us to get them shipped to you. Send payment to: CJLA PO Box 41430 San Jose, CA 95160. You can also go to the sponsor section on the website and use PayPal to pay your mailing charge. You will just need to also send an email or call to let us know what member the postage is for.
POINTS: When will they be posted? Exciting news – we have someone new who will be recording points. It’s a lot to learn so please bear with us as we make this transition. We are excited about the additional help and look forward to being able to work on new projects and take CJLA to the next level. Mary Ann Bush will still be the go-to person for questions about points, rules, shows, etc. so don’t hesitate to call or email if you need help. Show results are starting to come in from the first shows of the year so we should have the first update posted here soon. We will send emails out to all current members also so be sure to watch your email boxes for news from CJLA. Which reminds me! CJLA sends most of its information to you by email through Constant Contact. It is your responsibility to open and read them so you know what’s going on! :-}. If you are not getting emails, check with us to be sure we have a correct address for you or give us your email so we can add you to our list. WE DO NOT give out email addresses and only use them to send you CJLA and Pacific Showcase information.
Check out the Show page: We just made some updates and you can use the list as a reference for Show information. There is a new goat show for 2014 – to be held August 16-17 in Corning. Complete info is on the show page.
This is all for now…. Until next time…..Enjoy your travels down the Show Road!
