A few comments were shared on people asking what we are doing as a committee and questions were answered.
Discussion on the misconception out there that we are trying to create a square breed.
Discussion of how we are researching the historical standard and trying to resolve the internal inconsistency in the current standard to show the Scottie is proportionally a rectangular dog and how do we get that message out to the club, breeders and judges.
Merle asked under old business if the members each brought 3 questions to the meeting.
Discussion on the questions shared.
The committee decided that these will be used after information is gotten out about how the Scottie is a rectangular breed.
Merle asked for new business.
Darle agreed to work on a one page article for the Bagpiper with illustration on the Scottie being a rectangular dog and how it has never been the intent of this committee to change that.
Discussion on usage of the STCA newsletter in addition to the Wrap Up as a means of education and communication from the committee.
Discussion on getting word out that all the minutes of the committee are available on the website for anyone to see.
