We have a lot planned for you this month and in coming months. Don’t forget to checkout/subscribe to the calendar!
Special Event: VAN-PAH Shadow Falls Camping
Friday, May 24th – May 26th
We will be heading up to Shadow Falls Campground (www.shadowfalls.ca). Shadow Falls is a gay owned clothing optional campground about 1.5hrs east of Vancouver heading towards Harrison Hot Springs. They have about 40 acres of private property with many amenities such as hot showers, flush toilets, club house with pool table and social area, large social fire pit, small store for firewood/snacks and power even at the tent sites. Come enjoy the grotto and the waterfalls. Take a dip in the brisk lower falls pool. Take a hike up the mountain to overlook the valley. Or hang out around your camp and share stories with friends.

VAN-PAH Shadow Falls Telegram Chat:
New for 2019 is the Shadow Falls Telegram chat, with its own dedicated chat it will aim for speedier conversations, connecting with friends and notifications at camp. The chat is as always SFW. If you don’t want your mum, aunt and her best friends seeing it. Then don’t post it, if in doubt always check with an Admin/Moderator.

Come on out for a social evening with everyone from our puppy and pet community. We’ll be meeting in the back area by the pool table. Wear your leather, rubber, fuzzy, or whatever other gear you want. Of course gear is admired but never required. Having fun is the only requirement.

Join the pups and Handlers of VAN-PAH for our regular monthly mosh!
Saturday, May 4th, 2:00pm – 4:00pm @ The PumpJack, 1167 Davie St, Vancouver
Whether you are going to romp, socialize or just explore, come on out and have some fun! A mosh is an opportunity for pups and Handlers to get together and socialize. You’ll find pups romping around, playing with toys and having an all around blast while Handlers socialize and play with the puppies.
*Always remember puppy gear is admired but never required! WAGS!

We will have our regular mosh area all closed off to make it our own private space. Wear what makes your puppy wag. Normal safety rules are in effect with regard to spikes, hard soled shoes, etc. on the mats.
Nudity is allowed at this event but only on the mosh mats. When off the mat area underwear/jocks and shoes must be worn. Please keep in mind that sexual play is not permitted as we still need to follow bar rules in that regard.

Board Games Night will be planned for the 3rd Monday of the month so come on out and socialize!
VAN-PAH Members, this month and for the next couple of Howls, would like to reiterate that ALL VAN-PAH events adhere to the same rules and practices, before, during and after. One rule in particular is important for every Event, Social and Mosh.
Consent is not just mandatory, it’s sexy!
If anyone ever approaches you and does an action/something you are uncomfortable with, tell them NO. If you can’t tell them no, then let a Friend, Staff or VAN-PAH board member know, it is important that this behavior be stopped as we want everyone and all to be welcome. The Events, Social and Moshes are your safe space and we wish to keep them that way.
Please don’t be quiet and howl it to the moon.
