Volunteer at the games…
SLAD reserved one 10×10 space (booth) on Dog Club Row, at the Canine Games for Oct 7, 2018.
A free opportunity to promote the club to several hundred people.
Get directions to Purina Event Center. — Look at PDF map of the grounds.
Sep 15 message from Jeff Pech, …the vendor/dog group area will be along the sidewalk between the visitors center and the Incredible Dog arena – very high traffic. Look for stakes in the ground with your name on it. Your space will be around 12′ wide and you can probably go back 20+ feet if you wish. Please remember, no electricity available. Bring your own canopy and chairs if needed. Set up as early as you like on Sunday October 7th – as long as you are ready to go by 10:00am. Event runs from 10am – 4pm Rain or Shine. Last year was just short of 400 dogs registered.
Plans so far:
— Joe designed promo to handout. Gina printing it at FedEx.
— Joe suggested dog photo decorations for the booth. In progress.
— Pat suggested give away bag: dog cookie & club info sheet or bCard.
— Maryellen asked about raffling a basket. There was no objection. (status ???)
