Friends of the Floater; This is a special invitation to help build excitement for ATCA‘s 2023 Floater Weekend in Minnesota Aug. 24-27, 2023, by joining our “Friends of the Floater” group! Your sponsorship gift of $10 or more goes 100% to help the Twin Cities Airedale Terrier Club host the ATCA National Floating Specialty Show, the nation’s first-ever AKC Airedale Hunt Test, an enchanting St Croix Riverboat cruise and our gala banquet. All “Friends of the Floater” will be named in the Welcome Book and signage at the major events. As an extra thank you we will make out one drawing slip in your name for a very special drawing to be held at our private banquet on Saturday night. This year’s Floater Logo is actually a 24 x 30 oil painting our Club commissioned from Minnesota artist (and Airedale owner) Jordan Pesta. The homage to Grant Wood’s original “American Gothic” was been custom framed with gorgeous old barnwood siding harvested from Mareth Kipp’s old granary building over 20 years ago. Talk about a distinguished pedigree! One drawing-slip thank you goes into the box for every $10 you sponsor. The drawing and winner will be revealed via video on the Club’s Facebook Page Saturday night so you can feel like you’re with us even if you can’t attend in person. Don’t delay. Aug. 10th is the deadline to be recognized in our Welcome Book.
