The club received this invitation letter July 17, 2018
Dear Dog Wellness Group / Club
Please accept this special invitation to promote your group / club at the 2018 St. Louis Canine Games. This year will be the 22nd Annual Canine Games, and if you have ever had the opportunity to attend, it is a great day for dogs and their families to have a fun day at beautiful Purina Farms in Gray Summit Missouri. Last year we had over 400 dogs and their “people” participate.
Canine Games on Sunday October 7, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. The St. Louis Canine Games are sponsored by the Spirit of St. Louis Samoyed Club, St. Louis Samoyed Rescue and hosted by Purina Farms. The games are offered as a venue for all canine enthusiasts to try new activities on a non-competitive, beginning level basis and to offer people the opportunity to have a great time with their dogs. I have attached a copy of this year’s flyer. We expect between 400 – 500 dog entries with an attendance of several hundred people, including the general public who visit Purina Farms on the weekend.
For this event, we will offer you at least a 10×10 space at NO CHARGE – FREE! This year we are starting instead of vendors – “Dog Club Row”. The purpose is to give you an opportunity to promote your particular group/club to all attending – you can be creative to promote your booth. Your space will NOT have electricity. You must supply your own canopy and chairs.
Please note that Purina Farms prohibits “vendors” from operating food concessions or selling any commercially produced dog food or treats.
All spaces will be located on the upper level between the Purina Farms visitor center and the Canine Water Sports demonstration arena.
You will need to supply your own tables and chairs and shade canopy if needed.
Ample parking is available close to the “vendor” area and food will be available for purchase on-site at the snack bar in the visitor’s center.
The ONLY request is that you promote the Canine Games by whatever means you may use – Facebook, email blast, event calendars, posting flyer etc. up to Saturday October 6th.
I have attached the 2018 Flyer and can provide a jpeg if needed.
To secure your space, please sign and scan/email the enclosed agreement. Agreements will be accepted until September 15th; however, vendor spaces are limited to 12, so please return your agreements early.
We look forward to your participation this year, and please feel free to contact me with any questions.
Sincerely Jeff Pech,
Canine Games Chairman
