2014 Meetup Schedule So Far...

From: Buffy
Sent on: Thursday, January 30, 2014 10:14 AM

Happy 2014 Everyone!

Hard to believe we're already a month in! Welcome to all our newcomers & thanks to everyone for making this group such a fun one filled with great dogs and people! :) (We're now 215 members strong!!)

Remember, our membership spans a great portion of Colorado & I'd love your help this year in suggesting and hosting events in your region - especially our friends in Summit County, Colorado Springs, and Ft. Collins! (If you plan it, they will come!)

If you look at the Calendar view, and see a day with nothing scheduled in your area - think about setting up a Meetup! (At least 3 days in advance…) If you need my help, just ask! :)

Please keep your RSVPs up-to-date. If your plans change, make sure you cancel your RSVP accordingly – especially if it’s an event with limited spots. It's also dues time again, so if you could please remember to pay at your next Meetup, I'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks!

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me: [address removed]
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Buffy, Milo & Little

p.s. A limited number of 2014 Bernese Mountain Dogs of the West calendars are still available - please contact me if you'd like one.

p.p.s. If you are planning on joining us for the Furry Scurry please sign up as soon as possible, and spread the word about our fundraisers!
