A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT -
The first question on the American Whippet Club membership application is “Why do you wish to become a member... ?“ The most common response is, “To get more involved with the parent club”.
Significant events for 1996 included the tenth National Specialty, the first International Whippet Congress, the adoption of a code of ethics, the development of a versatility award, and the American Whippet Club's own web page on the internet. What did all these events have in common? They represented hundreds of hours of volunteer work by AWC members. More than one hundred individual members were personally involved in one or more of these projects. That's one fourth of our total membership. How much more could we accomplish if every member became involved? Don't wait to be asked — volunteer.
Thank you to all the members and non-members who contributed their time and efforts in 1996. Without your help none of this would have been possible.
Rescued at the age of twelve, I’ve had Nikki for only 2 1/2 years, but it has been worth a lifetime.

In two seasons, Dillon won his Junior Courser and Senior Courser titles with the minimum 6 trials; in 21 ASFA events, he attained his Field Championship in 3 trials (including 1 Best of Breed and 1 Best in Field), aIl 4 of his Lure Courser of Merits firsts (including a first at the 1996 ,AWC National SpeciaIty and 2 Best of Breeds), and 264 points. An injury cut short his 1996 lure coursing season, leaving him just 36 points shy of his LCM. You befter get out of his way in the Spring, though, because he’ll be ready!
Congratulations to his 5 Iittermates for their Field Championships and LCM’s!
Thank you’s go to Kay Nierengarten for allowing me to own such a silly dog and to Jean McCord for conditioning DiIIon for his last first and breaking the 30 lb. barrier!
And to Smokey and the Glory of the Chase … I love you still.

This handsome fawn and white male has many attributes we love to see in a whippet — very sound, balanced angles front and rear without exaggeration, and the balanced movement that follows, extraordinary depth of brisket — and those big, black eyes on a handsome male head dripping pigment.
Devon is lacking only one of those famous hard-to-find majors to finish, If we can manage to drag him from his favorite soft spot, we will look for one at the summer shows.
(Ch. Locars Martini on the Rocks x ldover Simply Splashing)
We are very proud of how this young bitch has grown into a beautiful representative of the breed.

“Sheila”, pictured last summer at age 6 months, has been attracting lots of attention in Ca, with her fawn and white good looks and has-no-enemies temperament (not to mention her beautiful head, soundness and wonderful movement). Watch for a more mature Sheila to make an even bigger impression in ‘97.
