"P.J." is shown here winning his first major at 8 months of age by winning WD, BW, and BEST of OPPOSITE over 4 male Specials, while his sister, CHERCHE' TOUCH ME, wins WB and his "aunt", CH ELYSIAN A-FEW APRIL SHOWERS, wins BEST OF BREED.
This striking red-brindle pup was our pick at 9 weeks of age. He is the only one of the litter here at Elysian, and we have great hopes for him as a sire. His immediate pedigree combines the famous "Rapid" with our Elysian Lion's Share and TWO beautiful bitches from the very successful breeding of Ch. Elysian Glorya Rejoice to Ch. Hound-Hill Brattleboro, C.D. Owned here, "P.J." is co-bred with Chris Durance.
His beautiful fawn sister ELYSIAN SPARKLING CHAMPAGNE, owned by Bettie and Bill Crawford, Marion, Texas , boasts of 4 Hound Group FIRSTS and a Best in Match, all-breeds (entry almost 300) in an exciting summer match career. She is still another to watch for in 1989!!

Perry and Suz are proud of their kids! This lovely young lady is indeed following in father's footsteps by going Best in Sweeps at the 1988 Southern Specialty from the 6-9 Puppy Class, as her father did one year ago. Thank you Mrs. Iva Cottrell Kimmelman for this lovely win! Carlieann was also BOS in Sweeps at the supported entry the previous day under judge Mr. Randy Tincher.
Carlieann would like to congratulate some of her litter-mates: Cherche' Touch Me (Skeeter), for winning this year's Futurity under breeder-judge Cora Miller; Elysian Sparkling Champagne ,(in Texas) for her AKC Match wins, including numerous Hound Groups and a Best in Match; Elysian Fortune Hunter, owned by James Gray, MD, was BOS over specials at Birmingham KC for a 3 point major from the Puppy Class, and Skeeter was Winners Bitch the same day for 2 points. Look for the rest of the litter in 1989.

Whippets truly get better with age.
Our handsome puppy, Scout, started his quest for championship points at 6 months old, and much to our delight, finished at 9 months old with a major, Best of Breed and a Group III under Judge Clinton Harris, September 23, 1988, Albert Lea KC.
Between his first and last points, he won two 5-point majors in Ohio from the Bred-By Exhibitor class; one under Judge Richard Reynolds at Agathon KC, August 25, and the other under Judge Michael Dougherty at the American Whippet Club Specialty, August 28. Mr. Dougherty wrote in his review, "... he flowed effortlessly around the ring, and was also true from both ends."
Two days after finishing, Mary Beth Arthur awarded Scout Best in Sweepstakes at the Greater Twin Cities Whippet Club Supported Entry (see photo above). This was a lovely honor capping a thrilling puppy career.
Scout has always been presented by his owner/breeder, Carol Juelfs. Scout was bred by Carol Juelfs, Susan Kirkham and Robin Logue.
SCOUT'S BRIDES ARE THE GLAMOROUS SISTERS:
"Crystal" and "Star"
"Star" was shown to her championship by Cassie Juelf of Affinity Whippets.

STATISTICAL HIGHLIGHTS OF THE YEAR:
1. We had 1232 Whippets running in a total of 31 Meets. Of those running, 158 were Puppies, and in the new category Spay/Neuter, there were 30 Whippets participating.
2. The largest Meet of the year was sponsored by the Jersey Rag Racers, July 3rd, 59 Whippets running; the next largest was The Bluegrass Whippet Club's Meet of April 16th 54 racers! Our 3rd largest Meet was presented by The North Texas Whippet Club. March 26th 53 racers!

A lovely trophy donated by the IAM's company went home with Cathy and Pogo! This trophy will again be offered in Dallas in April '89 at our 3rd National Specialty Meet.
4. Only 8 Adult fouls and 1 Puppy foul were called in '88 again, an improvement over the previous year!
5. Nine ARM Certificates were awarded at our Awards Banquet in November. Those Whippets receiving that high honor will be presented elsewhere in this report.
6. Top winning Whippet for the year was Lyth York, ARM, ORC, owned by Jack and Connie Eaker.
Annual Reports are helpful to us all as it gives us a pause to reflect, assess and define our program, think about our goals, our purpose, and outline the projects ahead. The Purpose of the NPR Whippet Racing Program is the following, as stated in the NPR Rules and Regulations:
A. To encourage properly trained race Whippets to compete against one another in an organized manner.
B. To respect the all-purpose Whippet as:
1. A racer with speed, endurance and intelligence.
2. A show dog, with proper conformation to be able to compete in the show ring.
3. A friend and companion, of disposition and discipline to be a pet in the home.
C. To reward outstanding race Whippets with an Award of Racing Merit Certificate as outlined in the award program.
The big issue of '88 was the topic "Eligibility". I am pleased to report that this was settled in the Board's August meeting. The requirements for Whippets Eligible to Participate in the ARM Program are as follows:
II_ WHIPPETS ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ARM PROGRAM
A. WHIPPET MUST BE LITTER REGISTERED BY THE AMERICAN KENNEL CLUB OR THE CANADIAN KENNEL CLUB.

1. A "PASSPORT' STATING THIS WHIPPET IS DULY ACCREDITED BY THE OFFICIAL PEDIGREE WHIPPET RACING ASSOCIATION, IF SUCH AN ASSOCIATION EXISTS, FROM THE COUNTRY OF ORIGIN.. AN EXAMPLE: A WHIPPET COMING HERE FROM GREAT BRITAIN MUST BE DULY ACCREDITED BY -THE-WHIPPET CLUB RACING ASSOCIATION", AN AFFILIATE OF THE BRITISH KENNEL CLUB.
2. A CERTIFIED PEDIGREE, SHOWING 5 GENERATIONS, FROM THE COUNTRY OF ORIGIN'S NATIONAL KENNEL CLUB, MUST BE PROVIDED.

H. SPAY/NEUTER WHIPPETS ARE ELIGIBLE TO RUN, BUT IN A SEPARATE DIVISION, FOR "NARMS"---"NEUTERED" ARM POINTS'. (PER AWC MEMBERSHIP 11/87.)
The Goal for '89, is to finish the NPR Rules Revision. The RRC have twice returned opinions regarding the questions and concerns that have come up for review. After one or two more mailings, I will be ready to put the Rules on the computer to obtain the first proof of our work. This will be scrutinized by the RRC and the local Clubs, and after that session, the rules should be ready for printing.
Financially speaking, our Program is in the black; we collected $616.00 in per capita fees for the year. The big expense this year, as it was last, was our bill for 100 frames for the ARM Certificates; the last portion of that bill was paid in full in '88, and the frames are now "in house". Mailings and race result printings are the other major expenses we incur. The large expenditure for this year will be the printing of the new rules.

A REPORT FROM THE NEW EASTERN REGIONAL RACE COORDINATOR. LYNNE MCGOWAN:

The next big event was the July 4th week-end, hosted by the JRR. An entry of 48 Whippets for coursing, 75 for the Fun Match judged by Cora Miller of Hound-Hill. 8 were entered for the Obedience Fun Match, and 59 were entered in the NPR, and 41 for the U-val. Lyth York, ARM/ORC, owned by the Eakers of Texas, repeated his '87 performance by winning both the NPR and U-val. A special trophy was awarded to the most versatile Whippet entered which was Wistwind's Amos, F. Ch. Wistwind's Eli, F. Ch., and Campe's Ezmirelda were runner's up. This was determined by a point system based upon performances of all three days.

A REPORT FROM THE MID-WEST REGIONAL RACE COORDINATOR. BARBARA BUSSMAN:
1988 Racing season saw dogs competing from all over the country and Canada here in the Midwest. It doesn't seem possible that we held 14 meets and are ready to think about 1989. But first we must congratulate the top ten racers and their owners.
The top ten are based on Midwest meets only and are as follows:
In 1988 the following dogs completed their ARM titles: Chaparral's Precious Whizker ARM, owned by Greg and Louana Rogers, KY. Slades Lot-A-Water ARM owned by Dave and Nancy Henry Co B. Gutilla, OH; Sundance Q Quicksilver ARM owned by Larry and Loretta Polisini, Ohio and becoming the seventh member of her litter to complete the title was Lyth Shrike ARM, ORC owned by Chris and Gailann Reynolds, Ind.
Also to be congratulated in 1988 is Ch Marial's Whitewater ARM, ORC, CD for completing his bench and obedience titles.
We are looking forward to another exciting season in 1989. Hope to see all of you then.
