PERMISSION TO CROSS-POST TO ALL WHIPPET GROUPS
Folks, we are just a month out now from the AWC National Specialty in Baltimore, MD. It promises to be a very exciting event, held concurrently with the Whippet World Congress!
Every year, we have a Parade of Rescues at the National, to give all the rescued
Whippets a chance to shine in the ring. We would like to make this the best Parade of Rescues ever. There is no competition – just love all around for every rescue! The rescues need not be WRAP Whippets – they can be from shelters or other rescue groups, so long as they are Whippets. Rescued Whippets from other countries are also welcome!
If you are planning on attending the National and will have your rescued Whippet(s) with you, please sign up as soon as possible! There is no charge. All the rescues will be shown around the ring with their adoptive families, have their stories read to everyone, will receive gifts, as well.
The Parade of Rescues will be held on Friday, 4/27/2018, approximately one hour after the end of judging for the day. Please plan to be in the area by noon on Friday, as we do not know exactly when the judging programs will end for the day. Register early to ensure space for your Stars! Send an e-mail to Ruth Beall no later than April 1, 2018, and then follow up by April 14 with bio(s) for the Whippet(s) participating in the parade. Donations for the Whippets and registrations for the Parade are now being accepted.
Please send the below requested information for the parade to Ruth Beall, firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than April 14, 2016:
• Owner’s name / e-mail address / cell phone number
• Rescue’s name / age
• photo(s) of your rescue Whippet, to be included in the slide show at the WRAP table
• Bio about your rescue to be read while you and your rescue Whippet are in the ring
If you have gift items to donate for the Parade of Rescues, or the WRAP Silent Auction, please contact Barbara Henderson, email@example.com. All items must be received no later than April 14, 2018, if you are not delivering them to the National yourself.
The WRAP General Meeting will be held after the Parade of Rescues on Friday. All exhibitors and participants are invited to attend – you need not be a member of WRAP. Come on over to meet our members and hear our report!
Come by and visit us throughout the week at the WRAP table to view the history of WRAP in a slide show of rescue Whippets over the years, some from as early as 2001 through the present. If you have photos of your rescue Whippets that you would like to have added to the slide show, please send your photos to Ruth Beall, firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than Saturday, April 14, 2018.
Best regards, from the Volunteers and Rescues in WRAP!
