Groomer: As of now she is not coming. I don't feel like there was enough interest for her to come out there (as she owns her own business I don't want her to have to close it for the day just for us unless there was more interest).

Directions: Here is the website for the Dog Park:

Unfortunately there is no address, so the only thing I can advise is to get directions to either Jefferson or Johnson Creek and then go to Hwy 26. It is very easy to find and there are lots of signs that point to the road it is on.

Dishes: Sorry but I am not going to nit-pick and micro-manage this part of it. I don't have the energy for that lol. If everyone wants to post what they are bringing then great! Just keep in mind that last year we had about 25 people, so that was a lot of dishes so don't bring a TON of food. I will have soda and water (and plates/forks/napkins etc.) provided. HOWEVER, if say a couple people wanted to get together and bring some stuff (like somebody bring buns, another bring cold cuts for sandwiches) that would be fine too.

I know it's still fairly early. I don't have an exact number of people coming (and I won't), but every year we grow in number of attendees. Last year we had around 25 people. The lady at the parks and rec asked if she could send out an e-mail to those in Jefferson County who have corgis to let them know about the picnic, which I said was fine. I will also be extending the invitation to the IL Corgi group and to the Sunny Garden group (the woman who owns Sunny Gardens is HOPEFULLY coming so I wanted to invite her puppy people).

Also, I have posted the picnic onto the front page of MyCorgi. You can RSVP on there if you want to--it will give a VERY GENERAL idea of how many are coming (but again, not everyone RSVPs).

Hope this answers some of your questions! :)

@ Vicky I am moving your comment here :)

From Vicky: so, you mentioned a while back that your friend might be coming out to do nails, is that going to happen? need to get directions from here to there also. what kind of dish? maybe we need some input on that so everyone doesn't bring chips and dip. hehe

Hey! Does anybody here participate in WORS mountain bike racing? I don't, but my boyfriend does and I'm really excited to bring our corgi to his races and know that quite a few people bring their pets!

CORGI-Con was in Urbana, Illinois yesterday.

It was our first Corgi event in central Illinois. Since it did very well, I think we will repeat it next spring. 

It was on the main page EVENTS.  (You can still check on the details of it if you look in the events for May19.)

Corgi-Con? Where was that?

Comment by LA Stewart on May 20, 2012 at 3:59pm

We had CORGI-CON yesterday.  There were 23 Corgis there.

I told several people about the September 8th date for the Wisconsin Corgi Picnic.

Doesn't hurt to get the word out early.

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! if someone will do jack's nail's for only $5.00, count me in. just tell her to take a valium before it's his turn-hehehe. and gracie- some times all that "going on" takes the dogs mind off of the nail trim. have had to do that  a couple of times at shows. the dogs are so busy being "interested" in all the goings on, that they don't even relize what's happening. alaso, if this groomer is who i think andrea is talking about, she is also into dog showing and does take into account how your dog is going to be acting. i think it's a great is a great idea. and i have no input as far as a rain date. i have dog shows planned already for the weekends of sept. 15-16  and 22-23. i'm really hopeing to get the "boy" finished this year. hope, hope, hope

Hm. I think it would be to hectic to do nail trimming.  I'm just thinking of our own Kitsie.  She wouldn't sit still for that.  Too much going on. 

As for rain date, we're free.

Comment by LA Stewart on May 4, 2012 at 4:32pm

I just want to know if there is going to be a rain date so I can keep that day open as well.  Also, I helped organize the Illinois Corgi Picnic last year and I don't want to have it on the same day/days as your picnic.  Last year we had the Illinois Corgi Picnic on September 11, so I want to be sure to move ours back a bit.  I don't want them to end up on the same day. Thanks for any info.

Personally, I would not do a nail trim on my dogs at the picnic.  They will be too excited with all the Corgi fun, so I would not opt for a nail trimming at that time.  Might be tramatic.
