[PyrNet-L] Chat, Events: Fun Versatility Events
For Everyone in the Northern California area, this is to let you know about
two upcoming events that you might be interested in:
(1) The Sacramento SPCA is holding its 6th annual Doggie Dash on Saturday
June 5, 1999 at Sac State University (behind the CSUS BUSINESS
BLDG.--wherever that is). There will be a 5k (3.1mile) run or a 2k or 5k
walk. I'm told that you must have a dog to participate, so I'm assuming that
pyrs will opt for the walk. <bg> Additionally there are several contests
including owner-dog look alike, tallest, smallest, shaggiest, most
glamourous, etc. Registration starts at 7 am, run/walks begin at 9 am. Cost
is a $17 donation prior to day of event, or $20.00 on day of event. There
will be local celebrities present, and vendors. For more info and/or a very
cute brochure, call (916) 383-7387 x 9102. This event will be good for two
versatility events: public education and walkathon or fun walk.
(2) On Sunday June 6, GPCC AND SPGPC are co-hosting "Pyr Versatility Day" at
Gibson Park Ranch here in north Sacramento County. There will be a five mile
hike around and through the ranch, carting, a pyr parade and CGC testing,
along with time to have fun, check out the animals at the Ranch, chat with
friends, go fishing, etc. A BBQ lunch will be available. Your pyr can
participate in any or all events, and really rack up some versatility points.
We are really encouraging everyone to come out for the Versatility Day,
even those of you in the Bay Area! This may be a once in a lifetime event,
although we hope not. Gibson Ranch is a terrific location for spending a
summer's afternoon with or without a pyr. Swimming and horseback riding are
also available for a charge.
Any questions, you can email me privately.
