And Dante is still The One, taking Group 3 from the classes (V. Hampton), and BOB under Marcia Foy and Mrs. Gately. Still shown on a limited basis, we are proud of his showings at Specialties and supported entries, always making the final cut or placing, and of the many compliments. This year Dante added Canadian points to his 13 American ones.
The Ladies ...
Our foundation was completed with the July addition of Affinity Cie d ' Rathkeale, ultra feminine red brindle daughter of Ch. Winterwhip Peter Paul Mounds and Karamac Patric Megan, FCh., and the August arrival of Winterwhip Silver Reward, the super sound lady from California (Ch.

Dazzle came cross country to add a bit of bone to Eastern showings, debuting at 9 months with Adult Match Group 2. She also has 2 BP awards, and a RWB from Sr. Puppy.

NORTH TEXAS WHIPPET CLUB
With the familiar refrains of Auld Lang Syne still echoing in the memory, it reminds one that now is the time to review the whippet activi ties for 1982 in the South-Midwest region, mainly Texas.
It's been a busy year with us, and the North Texas Whippet Club is proud to announce 7 of our dogs gained titles of one degree or another in 1982 At our Christmas Party, for such achievements, we presented shiny gold railroad spikes with the dog's name and title (s) to these joyful owners, They are:
Dancing Carly, CD - Vicki Almon
Gypsy's Butterscotch El Toro, ARM - Karen Johnston
CH. Gypsy's Chili Powder - Karen Johnston
Regalstock's Urban Cowboy, ARM - Richard Koch
CH. Marial's Natchez - Barbara Koch
CH. Hullabaloo's Pompeii - Betty Stites
CH. Rockhill's Running Deer, - Del Yorton and co-owned CD, F. CH. with Donna Gene Payne
You'll note the last dog listed (and certainly not least) is a bitch and earned all three of these titles in 1982! What's next, Del?
We had four races at the Celina track this year, three official and one a practice race for the WAS-IT Club of Houston; we're proud to repeat their announcement..."WAS-IT, IS" ! Our NPR in April was a muddy one, but we had 32 entries and the 3 high-scoring dogs were: Cowboy, Ridge Runner Toast to Toro and Butterscotch. The Houston Club lucked-out with pleasant weather for their 2 day practice race over the Labor Day Week end and Eaker's WR's Pistolero took the meet with 27 points; Gypsy's Casino Chip was second with 18 points and Rockhill's Brindle Storm was third at 17 points. That last week-end in September was a lovely one and thank goodness...everything was ideal for our 2 day NPR. We even had two TV groups filming our "goings-on"; one tape was shown on PM Magazine November 1st in the Dallas area and the other was shown at our Christmas Party; both were good and certainly much fun to watch for those of us involved! We had two California couples join us for that race, Jean and Vince Balint and Lana and Sid Smith. We're delighted to see the Texas-California connection working so well! We prevailed upon Jean Balint to judge a Fun Match for us in the afternoon after our racing; that was an extra added attraction. Jean's selection for Best In Match Dog went to Warlock's Wizard of Rockhill owned by Del Yorton; Best In Match Bitch went to Rockhill's Black Gold owned by Donna Gene Payne. The winners of the NPR were: Cowboy, WR's Pistolero and Prissy Princess Da Toro.
Then came Thanksgiving and our "Turkey Classic" and more "fowl" weather! We had been enjoying a lovely November but during Thanksgiving week a cold, rainy front came through so it made conditions uncomfortable for man and dog. The track held up well, and at the end of the day our Cal ifornia friends, Susan Morris with Flyaway Delisa's Delight, ARM, took the meet with 27 points, followed by Jo Gore's Regalstock Cimarron Del Toro, ARM with 23 points; third place went to Karen Johnston's Gypsy's Butterscotch El Toro, ARM.
All in all, it was an exciting racing season, not only here but all over the USA and Canada. The breeders are doing their job...the quality of these young adults and new pups is grand; it will make for exciting years ahead.
Our race schedule for 1983 has been requested and when it is approved, please look for it in the AWC Newsletter as well as our club's publication, Win, Place or Show. Again, as last year, we will not be sending out flyers for each race. Our fees will be the same as last, $5.00 for the first entry and $4.00 each additional entry. All entries should be completed on the standard entry form, postmarked 10 days prior to race date. Please mail them to:
6541 Dartbrook Dr .
Dallas , Texas 75240
Confirmation of entries will be sent by mail and will detail Measuring and Starting times.
We hope many of you will make the trip to Texas to race with us and I can assure you many Texans., with dogs, will attend your race meets. Now, if only the weather will cooperate for all, the dogs be in the best condition possible, and the owners be of good cheer...1983 will be a wonderful year.
So, here's to that "cup o' kindness yet for auld lang syne" ...................................................... Happy New Year!

LOWER MIDLAND WHIPPET ASSOCIATION
The conclusion of 1982 marked the end of LMWA's third year of existence. It was a highly successful year for our small club and our members.
Our first events of the year were 3 lure field trials on Easer weekend. At barely 1 year of age, Swiftsure Wishful Thinking (Buchholz) won the breed on the two days he was entered, with the final day's honors going to another youngster, Ringdove Rain Crystal (Newman). This was the first year with lure coursing running under the auspices of the Canadian Kennel Club - a very exciting development for coursing.
June 27th marked the date of our All Breed CKC Sanction Match, held outdoors under somewhat threatening skies. The rains held off for the afternoon and we had a very busy day organizing the show. Best of Breed whippet went to Ragtime Four Leaf Clover, owned by member Elizabeth Hughes, and shown by young daughter, Cathy.
Our third event of 1982 was a supported entry at the North Shore show on July 18th. Best of Breed went to Tuck Turner's Ch. Denroc Hell on Wheels, F.Ch. from Calgary, Alberta.
October 9th and 10th were the dates for our final events - two more lure field trials. We were greeted with a tremendous entry of 37 whippets and competition was keen in the three open stakes. We were happy to welcome a large Alberta entry, our American friends, Vancouver Island supporters, and a goodly number of local dogs. First time entered Swiftsure Rainbow Chaser (Fisher/Buchholz? topped the breed on Saturday, with Lyth Wrekin (James) going all the way to Best in Field honors on Sunday. Everyone enjoyed a buffet dinner and open house party Saturday evening which included a highly successful "sighthound art" auction. Most sought after items were undeniably Jim Goebel's beautiful wood carvings.
LMWA did not host any NPR meets this year due to an already hectic schedule of NPR meets, NOTRA meets, shows and coursing trials. Our members were well represented in all activities and finished show championships, field championships, and an Award of Racing Merit title.
Our newsletter, Rabbit Habit, rapidly gained popularity and we hope it will continue to prosper in 1983. We offer it free to any interested whippet fanciers.
LWRA looks forward to a very exciting 1983. We are extremely pleased to announce that we've been given Canadian Kennel Club approval to host our first Whippet Specialty on July 17th. This will be on the same weekend as a Sighthound Specialty and 2 all breed shows. Plans are already under way for an unforgettable weekend! In addition, we will be having our annual 3 day lure coursing trials on Easter weekend, and 2 more trials in the fall.
Our thanks to all that supported us in our 1982 activities and we hope you will join us in 1983.
Linda Buchholz -LMWA Secretary - Aldergrove, British Columbia
