As announced, Jean Pierre Gotti has not renewed his candidacy as President of the Red Club.
Jean Pierre, recognized work judge, had his first red in 1986 and raises Irish setters under the affix "du Val de Loue". Under this affix he has produced a great many working champions. He has been a member of the Red Club for 32 years, has served on the committee for 26 years, and served as President for 10 years.
We thank him for all the work done for the breed in France and elsewhere. His immense contribution for both the race and his club was highlighted with great accuracy both by Raymond O'Dwyer at the last Irish Spring by Moncetz Longevas and by Claude Beucherie, his vice-president and close adviser on the occasion of the National Breed show at Glomel.
At the request of the club president and committee members, he remains the international representative for the Red Club.
Ludovic Iuchs, who was secretary of the Red Club, succeeds him to the Presidency. He had his first Irish setter in 2000 and is breeding for 16 years under the affix "des Solos de Rory".
The new commitee is:
- President: Ludovic Iuchs
- Vice President: Bernard Trubuilt
- Secretary: Yohann Bouder
- Treasurer: Claire Gauguelin
- Jacques Mathieu, Assistant Secretary
- Florence Carton (new member)
- Olivier Reau (new member)
- Yves Desdevises
- Gilles Clin
- Xavier Guirlet
- Jean Michel Hacquin
- Laurent Pernin
- Cyriaque Riviere
- Claude Beucherie
