President’s Report

Hello and welcome to the Australian Sheep Dog Workers’ Association Incorporated’s website

A big thankyou is extended to our major sponsors, the Hypro/Dogpro team.  It was great to have Sean and Julius at Dalby for the duration of the Supreme and to have John Camilleri on ground for Thursday/Friday.  We thank Dogpro for their ongoing support and we look forward to working with you into the future.

I acknowledge and thank Grant and Fiona Borchardt for their commitment to the 2019 Dogpro Supreme.  Without sheep, we would not have any trials, so thank you for your commitment to our sport in adversity.

The ASDWA welcome Lance Clifford to the Vice Presidents role and we thank all other executives for their continued support and work for the ASDWA.  Thanks is also extended to the State delegates for their time and input into our organisation.

There has been a lot of discussion generated by the Notice of Motion put by NSW at the Dalby General Meeting. If there is a genuine feeling for change, all States need to  co-operate and forward ideas to Joy prior to the next phone hook-up.

The 2019 Dogpro Australian Test team will be travelling to Nelson, NZ, to contest the Wayleggo Cup on the 23/24 November 2019.  We wish the Dogpro Australian Test team all the very best.  The Test Team is as follows

Judge/Manager           Ian Beard

healthy and safe festive season.
