Welcome to another edition of Committee Corner... and welcome to the introduction of another one of your committee members.

Gulp.. its my turn for committee corner .. so here goes!

Hi! I'm Reece, and for those that don't know me I am from way down the southern end of NZ in Dunedin - Part of glorious Zone 5 (by the way! We're hosting NZDAC this year, its gonna be great).

2019 marks 13 years since I started doing agility with my first dog, a red and tan Kelpie called Jack - he wasn't that great at agility, but it got me hooked on it and saw me getting another couple of kelpies, until I joined the dark side getting my first border collie in 2010.

Now days I have 5 dogs, 4 competing at senior level and a cute puppy.. if I do say so myself.

This year I am on the Zone 5 NZDAC organising committee, which along with being on my club committee and the AC as Treasurer makes for not a lot of spare time. Joining the AC has been a bit of an eye opener for me, the sheer volume of things that come through on a daily basis has really surprised me (maybe I was a little naive).
While not everyone in the community might agree, I feel generally the AC is positive and working towards making agility a better sport for us all.

Probably every one who has written up a committee corner article has put the same thing - but if you have something you want to discuss, and you see me at a show, feel free to come and have a chat.

And by the way - I hope you’re all making the effort to come and support us in Zone 5 for this years NZDAC! See you there!
