The Chicago English Bulldog October 2013 Meetup- Halloween Ball!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Please join us for our Second Annual Bulldog Halloween Ball! Our costume contest last year was a blast with over 35 participants. Trophies and prizes were awarded to the top 3 "best in show".

We're excited about a bigger and better event this year and we are already have a 35% higher RSVP count over last year's impromptu event so this will be a big one! We are indoors with no weather contingencies and have plenty of parking. Bulldogs get a free Trick or Treat bag (while quantities last)

Our Halloween Ball features our Costume Contest. We have three top prizes and winners are based on a popular vote. All guests of our October Meetup receive a ballot and a registration number if their Bulldog enters the competition. We collect ballots throughout the event and winners are announced at 3:00PM along with prize awards.

Our first 35 bulldogs will receive a Trick or Treat goodie bag courtesy of Bulldog Depot.

PRIZE AWARDS

Grand Prize- $50.00 Gift Certificate to Bulldog Depot

2nd Prize- $25.00 Gift Certificate to Bulldog Depot

3rd Prize- $16.00 Gift Certificate to Bulldog Depot

 

HALLOWEEN PHOTOS

 

 

 

 

Our amazing Meetup photographer Pete Wagner will be on hand to capture your special Halloween 2013 moment. The images above are some of the great shots Pete captured from our 2012 Ball.

We will have a special area at this Meetup to capture your special shots in a "studio-like" environment. Low resolution photos will be posted to the October Event photo gallery. You can purchase high resolution digital images and prints directly from Pete or talk to us at the gate.

 

TREATS AND NO TRICKS

Our October Halloween Ball admission includes light snacks and beverage at no additional charge.

Our friends at adoptaBull English Bulldog Rescue will be on hand with their current adoptaBulls and a selection of their apparel and other merchandise for purchase. If you are interested in adopting there will be volunteers on hand that you can talk to.

 

We are totally excited about this year's Halloween Ball and at just $5 per person it's the best value in town.

We hope to see you there! Please be certain to RSVP so we can plan accordingly.

    Can I come if I don't have a bulldog? I've been thinking of getting one and I don't know anyone that has one. I'd love to meet some bulldogs and possibly ask owners some questions.

    1 · October 24, 2013

    • Greg S.

      Yes and absolutely! We encourage prospective owners to attend our Meetup to learn about the breed and meet owners.

      October 24, 2013

    • Greg S.

      We are right on the cusp of waiting list mode but if you are coming without a bulldog you are welcome to attend even if you are shifted to a waiting list. We do a waiting list to keep the number of dog to a level that everyone will have a pleasant and safe experience.

      October 24, 2013

  • Rey A.

    Hi just wondering how the wait list work? Do we just show up and see if there is room? or will we receive notification if were able to attend?

    Thanks

    October 23, 2013

    • Greg S.

      Once we see the size of the waiting list we may open things up a bit more once we get closer so please check back.

      October 23, 2013

    • Rey A.

      Thanks

    October 23, 2013

  • Carrie W.

    Silly question, I know. But, Should the dogs arrive in costume or will there be time to dress them later??

    October 22, 2013

    • Greg S.

      There is a reception area where you could dress them plus a grooming room if it is not in use. Best Friends is very accommodating to us.

      October 22, 2013

  • dawna w.

    Sheldon and I will be there for all the fun.

    October 16, 2013

    Lola and I look forward to meeting everyone.

  • Greg S.

    Just an FYI, we had a glitch on the settings for this event limiting people to two guests. This is not correct and the event is open to as many guests as you would like to bring to see your baby in the costume contest.

    Settings have been corrected and you can update your RSVP if necessary. This is a HUGE help to us with refreshment planning but we are not going to to urn people away. Everyone and their guests is welcome to this Halloween extravaganza!

    October 3, 2013

  • Greg S.

    We can't wait to meet you! Our October/Halloween event is one our favorites. We get great turnout and it is a much more economical event for multi-person groups wanting to enjoy family Halloween costume fun with their bulldogs.

    We'll see you there!

    September 28, 2013

    • Carrie W.

      Just wanted to mention… there is a total of 4 attending. When I RSVP'ed the only options were 1 or 2 guests. Is that ok?

      October 2, 2013

    • Greg S.

      Sorry about that. There was an incorrect setting on the event which has now been fixed. If you have a minute to go in and update your RSVP that would be awesome. Not a problem if you can't. This venue is open ended on capacity. A good system RSVP helps us with the refreshment planning. Thanks for letting us know.

      October 3, 2013

  • Greg S.

    We're getting ready for a Spooky Saturday! Hope you can join us.

    October 2, 2013

  • Carrie W.

    Looking forward to attending our first meetup!! Can't wait!!! Stella will be attending with her family of four.

    Hi Everyone, My DH (Sam) and I got Bob a month ago. It's disgusting how much we love him and have connected with him already. I am excited that I can finally go to an EB meet. I run our café on Saturday. Bob doesn't know it, but he can't wait either!
