Noon to 5pm
Friends Forever Dog Park, Freeport, Illinois
Welcome Corgi Lovers!
Everyone is invited to join us for an afternoon of Corgi fun!
We will be meeting Sunday, September 11 at Friends Forever Dog Park in Freeport, Illinois. This 10-acre park includes an agility course, an area just for smaller dogs, and a huge pond. The park is fenced so your dog can run, play, socialize off leash and go for a swim! This park was chosen by Pet Fancy Magazine as one of the top dog parks in the country!
Check it out! http://members.petfinder.org/~IL124/dogpark/index.html
There will be a potluck lunch. Plan to bring something to share with the group. I hope there are some good cooks out there! Otherwise, pick up some potato salad, brownies, or picnic food from your favorite grocery. Also, bring your own drinks and table service (plate, silverware, napkin, etc.). Other items you might want to bring are lawn chairs, coolers, sunscreen, dog towels, etc.. Whatever you do, don’t forget the Corgis!
To enter the dog park each participant must show a current rabies tag and proof of current vaccinations for each dog. DHLP is required. Bordetella is recommended, but not required. There is a $5 fee per dog for a one day pass. Daily passes are available at the information booth or in the shelter office the day of the picnic. No puppies under the age of 4 months are allowed in the dog park. There is a maximum of 2 dogs per adult.

I can be there on the September 11th date.
If the date changes I will have to look at my calendar.
I like your attitude!
I am hoping we can stay with the Sept 11th date just because it is in everyone mind now. I can not to the 17 & 18 because I have a family wedding. I jus noticed that a new group discussion was set up for Naperville on the 25th, so that would probably be out now too.
My husband and I talked about this mess about a week or so ago.
We should have not had so much discussion and just listed a date, time, and place. People will come or not come, but you can not make everybody happy no matter how hard you try.
SUPER! Thanks again for making this all possible again.
I will contact Freeport again and give them this date.
We need to write up something to post on the MyCorgi Events on the main page. Also I think it would be good to set up the info on the Wisconsin & Iowa pages. Anywhere else?
I had written up info for several of the parks we almost picked. I could try again.
I could post it here and you could let me know if it sounds OK and what to add or change.
