Set up was a blast! (not really)
But we did get to see some old friends and thanked a few of the people who helped us along the way!

Our booth turned out GREAT!
RW, GC RW, GP RW Kapalua Co Co Nuts (age 6) represented the Havana Browns in the Breed Showcase presented by Joan Miller. He has had lots of practice, being the only HB in history to attain Regional Winner status in all three classes (Kitten, Championship, Premiership).
Our cats did fantastic with the crowds
Sheila and CoCo Nuts
Diane Mounib, Leann (with Rachi, her HB neuter), Jonna, Kevin O'Lone,

While Diane and Kevin are not HBF members, their help was MUCH APPRECIATED!
