Hello Spotter Fans!!
Yes! The Spotter team wants you all to know that there will be a Summer issue!! The summer issue will be special and we are calling it “The Historical National Specialties” issue. Even though we are disappointed that we will be missing this year’s National Dalmatian Specialty, we have decided to make this summer issue - one of many past Nationals memories..including the cover. Our summer cover will be an historical reflection of photos from many past DCA Specialty winners.
As always, contact Jennifer Cramer for your ad submissions. Her email address is: jennifercramer @ msn.com
Ad reservation deadline is June 30th. She can give you all the deadline details.
Specialty Memory Ads
In addition to your new ads, we are offering you the opportunity to rerun a special National ad that had been published from you in a past National Specialty issue - at a special advertising rate.. It does not matter which year it was previously run. Did you have a great win at a past National? And did you love the ad that you submitted? Would you like to rerun that ad that you had done? We can do that! Contact Jennifer for pricing details.
About the Upcoming Spotter Covers:
Are you wondering about upcoming covers? We will soon have information regarding how you may be eligible to be the owner of a Spotter Cover. The covers available will be for: Fall 2020, Winter 2020/2021, and the Spring 2021 issue covers. More information forthcoming.
In making this issue memorable and special, we are asking you to please send us a DCA Specialty memory that you treasure.. in 100 words or less, please provide us with a special memory from any past National. What made it so special? A special win? Did you find that special dog? Did you make some new friends? Did you learn something new? Did you have a great conversation with someone? We will put in as many memories as we can..no pictures please.. only the words that made it special. We will use as many as space permits. Please email those National Memories to Kathy Szomoru at < firstname.lastname@example.org >
Thanks for all of your consideration and interest.
Kathy Szomoru and Jennifer Cramer,
Spotter Co-Editors ...
