Please note: Event has been moved to Sunday, Apr. 27, due to availability of the park.

Once again it is time for our annual Spring BBQ and get-together. There will be lots of fun, food, doggie games, and time for socializing.

BBQ & POT LUCK: KCA will furnish the hot dogs, hamburgers and buns. VERY IMPORTANT: When you sign up for this event, please be as accurate as possible with the number of people in your party. Our Cook,Darin, will be shopping for the meat on Tuesday, April 22, and will shop from the count on the calendar that day.

Everyone else is asked to bring a dish to share. Salads, vegetables, chips/dips, desserts, etc. We always get a great selection and no one goes away hungry. EVERYONE SHOULD BRING THEIR OWN WATER AND DRINKS. Must be non-alcoholic

DOGGIE GAMES: These games are designed for you to enjoy with your dog. Pam, our game organizer has chosen some great games for everyone to play. All dogs can play these games.

WHAT ELSE TO BRING: Chairs, water/drinks, crate for your dog, an easy-up for shade, leash for your dog, treats for your dog and water for your dog.

WANT TO HELP: . We need help setting up (everyone helps take down, we have to leave the area as clean or cleaner than when we arrived), organizing the food table. These and other jobs will be posted later on the KCA Discussion Board.

CGC TESTING: Sherry and Shan will be conducting a Canine Good Citizenship Testing event at the beginning of the BBQ. There is a separate posting on the calendar for signing up to take the CGC test. A few people need to volunteer to be the "Crowd" for that part of each test.

This is one of the most popular annual social events KCA sponsors. It is fun for the members and it is a great occasion to bring guests to meet your dog loving friends and get to know about our club. Hope to see you out there this year. If you have questions, just send us an can find us under members as "Shan and Ray".
