Lola,

     Due to the major rewrite of the A.S.C.A. By-laws, it became necessary to rewrite the
current By-laws of the Cascade Australian Shepherd Club.  As a result, we have chosen to adopt
the A.S.C.A. By-laws as written, and submit the following addendum to be attached,  Should this
causes a problem, please let me know, and we will adjust as necessary.
