Of course the BMDCA Ways and Means was a very popular place at the Specialty. They have the most wonderful clothing!

The BMDCA Ways and Means booth had t-shirts, sweatshirts, cardigans, jackets, golf shirts, rain jackets and scrubs and with the BMDCA logo on them. They had some wonderful cardigans and sweaters that were sooooo soft and they were in such lovely colors, too. BMDCA logo items include hoodies, t-shirts, cardigans, and back packs. BMDCA publications include yearbooks, draft regulations, BMD handbooks, and illustrated standards. DVDs include BMD Breed Study, 2007 Matthew Breen Genetics and the BMD, the Bell Genetics and the BMD DVD for $25 from the 2007 specialty.
The BMDCA has a list of publications that you really should check out on their website: http://www.bmdca.org/
Printed items include the 2008 Yearbooks (you can also buy previous Yearbooks ($42 to $48,) a CD of the 1968 to 2000 Yearbooks ($85,) Illustrated Standards ($8,) Draft Regulations ($2.50) and The Bernese Mountain Dog Handbook ($1.50.) The Breed Panel Discussion DVD is awesome, and a must see for Berner Lovers. They also have a BMDCA logo decal for your car ($2).
The BMDCA donated a Yearbook CD for years 1968-2000, plus a hard copy set of the subsequent years up to 2008. There are a nice reference for a new breeder and/or someone studying the history of the BMD.
Remember when you shop with the vendors to tell them that you saw their article on Joye Neff's Shopping at the 2009 Specialty series.

The BMDCA booth also had some very handsome sales assistants! I think this is Crosby, waiting to greet the next customer.
Wanda, the lovely model at the BMDCA booth is wearing the "bling" shirt. A Berner study in crystals on a simple black tee.
Crosby and his buddy took advantange of a lull in customers to get some much needed rest. Greeting all the customers at the BMDCA booth is exhausting work!
These are three shirts for us girls. The first is a fitted, light-weight hoodie, the second is a gingham 3/4 sleeve, and the last is as butter yellow colored blouse. All feature the BMDCA embroidered logo.
A rainbow of hats...
Shirts and sweatshirts in many different materials and weights. You can find something for every season, every climate.
This was a very popular jacket with the embroidered logo. I didn't think that it was shown to it's best advantage, so I had my husband hold it up. He's a good sport!
The BMDCA fleeces and hoodies were so popular, the chenille hoodies sold out by Tuesday!
The booth also had some light-weight jackets for purchase. In the back, you can see another popular item, the tie-dye paw print shirt, which Wanda was kind enough to put on so everyone could get a good view...
There was also a fundraiser for the Junior Scholarship Fund. Purchases of the grooming tote help support tomorrow's BMD handlers.
