This event was a showcasecompetition which served as a platformfor not only introducing the Merle tothe members but as an educational toolto introduce prospective judges to ournewest entrant in the ring beginningJanuary 1, 2019. This event was judgedby none other than Mary Walsh fromIreland. Mary was honored to be chosento select the winner of this one-timeevent. I was privileged to stand besideher as she awarded the Best Merleaward.As we look ahead to the New Year wemove our focus to the North EastDivision. The new site for the show willGDCAbe at the Founders Inn in Virginia Beach.This show site is spacious andsurrounded by beautiful grass.

Great Dane Club of AmericaJUDGE’S EDUCATIONBill StebbinsThe 2018 National has come and goneand with it the introduction of theMerle to the membership as well as tothe Judges Education seminar. Inaddition to our regular attendees ofbreeders that are completing theirprerequisites to apply to become abreeder-judge and judges that are goingto apply to be approved for Danes as anadditional breed, we had a few of ourbreeder-judges also in attendance atthe Judges Ed seminar to hear thepresentation on the Merle. Due to thefact that Jason has been immersed inthe Merle for the last 2-3 years as amember of the Standard RevisionCommittee, he gave the classroompresentation this year. The questionsthat were asked and the responses thatwere given were to the point and shouldhave answered the questions orconcerns that the attendees may havehad. We appreciate the timely work andrelated hours that were spent bymembers of the Judges Committee. Wewere able to get our two primaryeducational tools (Illustrated Standardand PowerPoint presentation) revised intime for the National. Of particular noteis the work and coordination of DaleTarbox in completing the heavy liftingfor these projects. A special thank-youto Cindy Harwin for her mostappreciated assistance in getting thisproject completed in a timely manner.For those of you that are interested, therevised Illustrated Standard andPowerPoint presentation are availableon the GDCA website. Once you accessthe home page, go to the menu bar atthe top of the page and click on “TheGDCA4th Quarter 2018GDCA”. A pop-up menu will open. Clickon Judges Education. The links are atthe bottom of the page. There will besome final revisions which will beforthcoming. Jason had arranged tohave a Merle and Mantle-Merle presentat the classroom presentation. Givingthe attendees the opportunity to seethem up close and personal was adecided benefit. Although not a part ofJudges Education, Jason also arrangedfor a Meet the Merle event on Thursdayafternoon for the general membership.There were a large number ofinterested Daneites at ringside.Beginning on January 1, 2019, the Merlewill be seen in the show ring. It will beinteresting to see what we have beenmissing for all these years.HELPING OUR OWNBill StebbinsI sometimes have people come up tome and thank the GDCA for developingthe Helping Our Own program. As youknow this is designed to provideaspiring breeder-judges the opportunityto attain Sweepstakes assignments.These assignments are very importanton their applications to judge. To thebest of my knowledge most of ouraffiliate clubs use this program to attaintheir Sweeps judges. For those clubsthat are not doing so, I would encouragethem to help our own membership inthis important aspect of the applicationprocess.To access the Helping Our Own listplease go to the GDCA website. On thehome page go to “Shows” The pop-upmenu has a listing for “SweepstakesJudges”. Thanks for your help.Page 11
