I have had several people ask me about food, what to bring, how many people. I can't honestly say how many people will be in attendance this year, but from previous picnics there is always a huge spread of food, so I recommend planing a dish for 20 people to save from tons of leftovers.

If you know what you are bringing, please feel free to leave a comment on this post, and I will also be updating it as I hear from the non-MyCorgi friends.

Thanks!!

1 WEEK TO GO!!!!!!

I hope everyone is as excited as I am for this years picnic!! I have just a few notes and reminders for everyone.

I keep checking the weather and it so far it looks like it is going to be a GORGEOUS day!! 60s and sunny!! At this point I am not sure if I will be bring along my doggie pool, but just in case, I recommend you bring a long a towel just in case if your Corgi is a water-baby.

I am still needing a few people willing to come early and stay late for set-up and tear-down. The picnic starts at 1:00 and I plan to be there around 11:00-11:30. I will have tables, raffle, food and EZ ups to put up. Also, if anyone has an additional EZ up they can bring along it would be greatly appreciated!!

There is no electricity at the park, so if you are planning on bringing a hot dish, please package it accordingly. There will be an ice table, but space will be limited. Drinks will also be provided.

I will have some chairs available, but you may wish to bring your own just in case.

Please be mindful of items left on the ground. They can be easy targets for little leg hikers to pee on!! Also, if you see poop, please scoop--even if it is not your dog! The park has poop bags provided near the gate to the enclosure and I will also have some rolls scattered throughout the area.

X-Pens will be provided along the sides of the picnic area (still within the enclosure), they are there for dogs who may need a break. Like kids, sometimes they can become too excited and forget their manners and may need a 10 minute break to relax a bit. We also have a certified dog trainer and several breeders in attendance to keep an eye on things. If you are asked to give your dog a break, please do not become upset. We will not ask you to leave. If you would like to continue to enjoy the picnic you may use the X-Pens, or may leash your dog. If you see your dog in the X-Pen it simply means we couldn't find you. Again, PLEASE DO NOT BECOME UPSET, it really isn't that big of a deal. When you have 40+ dogs running together sometimes arguments and disagreements can happen. We have yet to have any escalated incidents or all-out fights and I would like to keep it that way.

If anyone has any dog treats they would like to share, there will be a special table just for that!! I will also be bringing some toys along--balls, Frisbees, and a chuck-it.

Can't wait to see everyone there!!!

We were there at that time too!!! We walked around and we didn't see any corgi around.

Therese - We must have missed you; we were there at the SSFM from about 10:30 - 11:45 or so. Did you meet big boy corgi Boomer? He was there checking things out.

I am not sure yet if we are going to the picnic or not. But today is a good weather, Corgi Charlie and I are going to the market, for sure. Hope we will meet some corgi later! =)

I am so looking forward to finally going to the picnic.  I was planning on going last year, but my little boy got hurt and was limping.  So it was a no-go.  But this year, he is fine and healthy, the weather cool and clear.  I'm bringing my camera and plan on finally making the picnic.  Hoping to see lots of little corgis!

We will try to make it to the farmers' market but have quite a list of errands for tomorrow morning. Are you planning on the Corgi Picnic next weekend? If the weather is mild, we will take Miss S. If it's too hot, we won't risk it as the heat can trigger her seizures. Charlie is so cute!!!
Comment by Terese on September 5, 2014 at 9:05pm

Corgi Charlie and I are planning to go to the farmers' market tomorrow sometime like 10 if the weather is allowed. Hope we will see Corgi Sophie and other Corgi! 

Comment by Chris Payerl on September 4, 2014 at 6:39am
Deb, yes dogs ate allowed at the farmers' market on leash. It can be quite crowded with people and dogs, so I think it would be hard with a dog who wants to pull all over the place. Sophie is pretty good--- but will pull to get over to her favorite "sniffing tree"!
