As many of you know we have been in the process for quite some time of applying to become a UKC club. The process was long and tedious; gathering, organizing, and presenting all of the information that was required for the application to simply be considered. ABBC would like to give a special thanks to Vice President Rhonda for spearheading that process and doing such an amazing job. The Board is so very happy to announce that Across Borders Boxer Club is now a UKC Provisional Club. There is still some work to do and requirements to be met but after we hold one "Provisional Show" we will be able to host sanctioned UKC shows! None of this would have been possible without each and every one of our members. Rhonda had to supply biography's for each and every member with the application and the UKC personnel specifically mentioned how impressed they were with the collective accomplishments and experience of our members. We would also like to express our sincere appreciation to Kevin Izard-Carroll, who wrote a shining letter of recommendation to UKC about his experience with our club last year when he judged our show, as well as for all the help suggestions and input he gave throughout this process. We are so grateful for this opportunity from UKC and cannot wait to see where it takes us. This club has come so far over the past few years and it is something that we hope each and every member is proud to be a part of!
