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. Patti will print it.
— Joe suggested dog photo decorations for the booth. Pending.
— list of items needed for the day, see below chart.
People volunteering so far: Gina, Maryellen, Joe, Pat & Don, Diane L, Patti W. Also pitching in, some people from PetShack developers of an app called PawCity. Body count and names pending.
Pack and BRING SNACKS. There is a concession stand but it’s not highly rated.
Depending on the shift, volunteers help set up booth, hang out, smile, chat with visitors, promote SLAD, help take down the booth and pack into Maryellens car, etc.
