John Callan, who was joined at the Head Table with all his fellow members and guests in their slings, did a great job chairing the meeting while President Ian took a holiday. Mark Max introduced Scott McClelland who explained that the World Clydesdale Horse Show and Trade is the world's finest out-door showcase of Clydesdale horses. Registrants from all over the world display a total of over 350 championship horses in the same place at the same time. This along with sponsorship, committees and volunteers is quite an accomplishment! The show runs from August 25-29 at the Carp Fairgrounds.
