RIP, 2018, and hellooooo 2019!
We have a lot of events coming up in the new year. Let’s talk about two of them now!
Puppypalooza will be on February 9th, a Saturday. Puppypalooza is a one-day critter event designed to showcase the varied type of petplay and pet discipline. Check-in begins at 10 am, and events begin at 11 am. Cost of admission is $15 online or $20 at the door for Participants and Spectators alike. Entrants are encouraged to register by February 1st to guarantee a spot in all events. You can purchase tickets here. This event is Potluck. This is a charity event; all proceeds benefit the ASPCA.
Derby Day will be May 4th (same as the Kentucky Derby!). This event benefits the No-Kill Los Angeles Animal Adoption Center. Doors open at 12:30 PM. We ask for a donation of $20.00 at the door (though you can provide more if you like!) for betting tickets. All of the betting ticket money goes directly to the No-Kill LA Adoption Center.
Everyone coming through the door receives 6 tickets. You may purchase betting tickets for $1 each. You cannot participate in the betting nor the Arcade Game without tickets. There will be a sign that explains how the win bets of each race are determined. All bets are placed before each race. Two winners from each race win EQUUS all natural handcrafted soap that have been donated to our club.
Races for the Day:
1. Derby Race
2. Steeplechase Race
3. Greyhound Race
4. Pacer Race
5. Puppy Hurdle Race
6. Trotter Race
After the races, there will be an Arcade Game. This game involves shooting foam darts at human Animal Role Players as they march back and forth, as on an arcade track. Participates buy a “round” of darts ($10) to shoot at targets.
Again: All Betting Monies and Arcade Game Tickets Monies go directly to the NO-Kill Los Angeles Adoption Center.
One Pony and one Critter with the most ribbon points (Blue ribbon = 3 points, Red ribbon = 2 points, Yellow ribbon = 1 point) will be awarded a Saturday Day Pass to DomConLA.
