One thing I want to convey to the members is when you enter the show ring it is only one person’s opinion. If you can’t accept the outcome don’t step into the ring. Those that happen to win, enjoy it because these wins are hard to achieve. Be humble about your wins and thank those that have helped you along the way. Those that don’t win, tomorrow is another day, and you will achieve your goals along the way. To all members enjoy the friendships you have made along the way and look forward to the new ones you will future.
