Just a few more days!

Hooray!  The big event is just a few days away, we can't wait to see everyone!

You still have a few days to get out there and collect pledges for the parade, extra pledge forms can be downloaded from the NewfStock site.  Who will win the prize for collecting the most pledges this year, maybe you???
Here are some important things to remember to help you get the most out of your weekend.
Directions and maps are posted on this site here.

Important times:
Swim Date Diamond Lake Beach 2 - 330
Tent set up Millennium Park 430 - 6
Pizza party 630 (after tents are up)
Main event Millennium Park 10am - 5pm (full itinerary will be posted on the website by Wednesday)
Saturday evening social at the Best Western hotel -- outdoors, look for the tent - 730 pm until the wee hours.
Group hike  Vance Park 11 am
Swim date/picnic lunch (bring your own lunch) Diamond Lake  1 pm

Remember to bring a chair to sit on at the main event! 

Bring cash to spend at the event -- there will be vendors, our massive merchandise booth with a bunch of new products, and there will be amazing penny raffle and silent auction items. 
The weather forecast is looking pretty good -- cool, but sunny, perfect for the dogs.  Bring some warm clothing - Saturday evening our newf social will be outdoors at the hotel under a tent so that we can all have our dogs with us -- the overnight temp is expected to be 3 degrees C (37 degrees to our US friends) so bring a hat, mitts, warm jacket and scarf. Your newf is going to be sooooo happy with these cool temps!  BYOB.  There will be a karaoke machine, so warm up your vocal cords (and maybe bring some earplugs).  LOL!

Those of you coming up from south of the border, remember to pack your passport and proof of vaccines for your dog. 
Safe travels everyone, we'll see you in a few days!
