At the inaugural Family Picnic, Martha O'Neill led an informational meeting where a committee (consisting of Diana Barrie, Kay Fanning, Edith King, Bob Platukas, and John Stanley) was established to nominate club officers. Everyone in attendance was shown an obedience competition routine and a demonstration of conformation exhibiting.  A contest for naming the club's newsletter was announced, plans for drafting a charter and by-laws along with hosting the 1986 National Specialty Show were discussed, a decision was made for an educational format at a future fall meeting, and fundraising for lure coursing equipment was proposed. "A nice day was had by all."


Later in the year, during a tracking clinic led by Martha O'Neill, the Nominating Comittee met and proposed the following slate of club officers: President: Martha O'Neill / Vice President: Mary Wickwire / Secretary: Ann New / Treasurer: Paul King / Director: Katherine (Kay) Fanning / Director: Amy Fisher / Director: John Stanley. Those in attendance at one or both of the first two gatherings were: Martha and Charlie O'Neill, Jim Brousseau, Kathy Sweeney (Milby), Jim and Alison White, Mary Wickwire, Linda Spector, Kay Fanning, Sandra Standly, Edith King, and Ann New.  ​

nerrc's beginning



On June 2nd and 3rd of 1984, a group of New England Rhodesian Ridgeback enthusiasts gathered to discuss forming a regional club. Many of the individuals involved were members of The Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of the United States and were eager to pursue club formation in anticipation of hosting a National Specialty Show in the New England region. 


They settled on the name "New England Rhodesian Ridgeback Club" (NERRC) which would encompass all six New England states of Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut. Membership dues were set at $10 per family and the first NERRC Family Picnic was scheduled for June 24, 1984 at Hopkinton State Park in Hopkinton, MA.
