Charlie In Convention

NCAG new president Charlie just arrived at the convention showroom. Everyone has to visit "Woody", the convention logo car for a photo op.

Charlie with Betty, NCAG secretary since 1986.

Tall Charlie seems to be extra tall when he is with Betty and Casey, his most frequent fellow exhibitors in the show circuit.

Charlie has assumed the job of NCAG president after Tracy went out of rabbits. He has not been showing much because he and his partner David have spent the last three years building their own home. They are not hiring a contractor to build their home, they are actually hands on building their home. They finally moved into their new home after convention enjoying their fruit of labor.

We are glad that he made it to the convention and hope to see him showing regularly again in our show circuit.
