    From the President I thought you would be interested in the below pictures from

    the August 1987 Issue of the Irish Setter Club of America “Memo to

    Members.” A whole stack of back Memo issues were given out at

    the 2015 ISCA Nationals in Georgia. If you look VERY closely at the top picture, you will see that the dogs are Irish Setters! It is a photo of the 1934 ISCA Nationals held at the Morris and Essex Dog Show. The beautiful owner/handler in the second picture (taken 53 years later) is our own Karolynne McAteer, the Chair for the May 2017 ISCA Nationals in Warwick, Rhode Island. Karolynne spoke to our club at the May 2nd EISA General Membership Meeting about her need for a theme for the ISCA Nationals. A theme is ab- solutely essential in order to get the ball rolling on the entire week of programs for a National. Personally, I love themes that provide an opportunity to dress up somehow. So, when I read Susan Sullivan‟s

    proposal for a pirate theme, I was immediately hooked when she sug- gested a “Friday Night Shipwreck

    Party” where members could dress

    up “in pirate or wench regalia.”

    Karolynne liked Susan‟s ideas also

    and asked that they be presented to the EISA membership. I am sure you will also enjoy reading Susan‟s

    exceptionally creative ideas.

    ISCA 2017 Theme Idea

    Ahoy, me Hearties! Landlubbers, Old Salts and Sea Dogs alike- Did ye know? Avast ye!

    Rhode Island was discovered by a pirate, named by a pirate and nurtured by pirates.

    ( pirate-and-nurtured-by-pirates,79035)

    Perhaps a pirate theme might be appropriate for the

    2017 ISCA National in Rhode Island.,79035,79035

    If you have attended other National‟s in Rhode Island you may remember the tons of pirate paraphernalia in the local stores. I still have a Blackbeard t-shirt I pur- chased there and a number of pirate bumper stickers. It is my guess that Irish setters would love a pirate‟s life. A PIRATE theme would be FUN, EASY and INEXPENSIVE.


    I have brainstormed (along with Sandy Jones, Debra Hamilton and Fiona Geiser) (Mariette‟s idea to honor dogs from past decades has been incorporated) some ways

    the theme could be utilized throughout the week.

    JOLLY ROGER: A Jolly Roger was a pirate‟s way of sending a message. The sample Jolly Roger above has an Irish setter, an agility pin, and both a show and an obedience lead, thus symbolizing what activities will be held throughout the week. It could be flown everywhere. Small flags could easily be made from paper and laminated. Perhaps a large flag could be made or purchased. I am sure Dawn Secord could make us a fantastic flag. There could be different Joll
