Parade of Champions

Have you ever had to get up early on Saturday morning of the National and get your Champion ready to show in the Parade of Champions? Have you ever wished you could get up early enough to watch the Parade of Champions?

Well ... we're kicking it up a notch for the 2011 National. The Parade of Champions will be held before the Friday night Buffet/Auction. The Parades will take place during cocktail hour. An open bar will be setup in the main ballroom where conformation is being held, and our applause worthy Champions will be paraded.

In addition your Champs biography will be published in the catalog, which means you will have to send Champ's biography to our Parades Chair - Hanna Kolzow ( Hotel napkins with a biography can not be passed to Hanna 5 minutes before the Parades, please.

2011 Logo

Here it is ... The Havanese Club of America, 2011 National Specialty Logo.

The logo was designed by Margaret Dominy and Louise Donner. The logo is representative of North Carolina. The flowers along the ribbon are Dogwoods - the State Flower. The "plane" in the logo is the Wright flyer. On December 17, 1903, Orville Wright piloted the first powered airplane 20 feet above a wind-swept beach in North Carolina. The flight lasted 12 seconds and covered 120 feet. Three more flights were made that day with

Orville's brother Wilbur piloting the record flight lasting 59 seconds over a distance of 852 feet. Thank You to Margaret and Louise for yet another great National logo!

(The "model" in the logo wishes to remain anonymous.)
