GREYFEST 2017!!

Make sure to mark your calendars for Greyfest! It will be held on Sunday, June 18 (Father's Day). So, grab your favorite dad and greyhound(s) and bring them to Greyfest! It will again be held at Snail Lake Park in Shoreview from 11am to 3pm. Dad will LOVE seeing the greyhounds run at Speed Alley! He'll also want a t-shirt showing the 30 years that GPA-MN has been a group--they'll be for sale at our merchandise table--along with collars and other awesome items! A taco lunch will be available and provided by El Presidente, Curt Carter! There will be games, contests, and pools for the greyhounds. And, as in the past, groomer Jen will be there doing nail trims for $5! Hope to see you there!!!

We are now looking for volunteers to help at Greyfest! It's a really fun event, but it can't happen without some help! Greyfest will be from 11 to 3, so there will be 2 shifts for most things so that you can enjoy the event and help out at the same time! The places we'll need help will be:
1. Welcome table from 11 to 1 (giving name tags to people and dogs and giving out door prize tickets)
2. Watching the x-pen 11 to 1 or 1 to 3pm (there will be an x-pen available for volunteers to put their dogs while they are volunteering)
3. Facility Care from 11 to 1 or 1 to 3pm (making sure there is water in the buckets for the dogs to drink, and also making sure the pools for the dogs have enough water in them)
4. Speed Alley from 11 to 1 (lots of help is needed here! We need someone to collect the tickets, start the hounds, catch the hounds, operate the radar gun, and record the names/speeds of the dogs)
5. Hot Dog Contest Emcee from 1 to 3pm (sign dogs up for the event and run the event)
6. Contest Judges from 1 to 2pm
7. Wine toss from 11 to 1 or 1 to 2:30
8. Food Service (helping with the food orders and taking money)
9. Clean up after the event starting at 3pm
Thank you for your consideration! We are looking forward to a fun and rain-free event!!!
