VAN-PAH Puppy-Tails Social
Friday, October 4th, 8:00pm until late @ Pumpjack
Come on out for a social evening with everyone from our puppy and pet community. We’ll be meeting in the back area, that for our birthday weekend is our space for the evening. 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. DJ starts around 10pm for those that want to dance. Spread the word and lets all have a fun time.
VAN-PAH September Mosh
Join the pups and Handlers of VAN-PAH for our regular monthly mosh!
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!
Walkies to the Ghost Train
October 28th @ 6.30 – 9pm @ Stanley Park Railway, 690 Pipeline Rd, Vancouver, BC
AwoOOoooOOOOooo! *Rattles Leash*
In the dead of night, a rumble along the darkened track can be heard. You are unsure of the sound, as it gets louder.
The abandoned railway has been empty for years, why is there a train? You look down the track and look on in surprise as a Ghost Train full of Pups and Handlers comes rolling into the station much to the bemused look of the other passengers.
That’s right we’re heading to Stanley Park for the all so spooky Alice in Nightmare land.
Don’t forget to bring glowy/shiny things as there will be blacklights, spooky pictures and of course the main attraction a ride along the Ghost Train.
Membership Reminder: It’s that time of year when the first renewals of VAN-PAH memberships are coming up. Watch your inbox for a reminder email and check out the Membership Perks page to refresh your memory about all the cool stuff you get with VAN-PAH membership!
- Please no outside Food or Drinks be brought into Pumpjack. We have been told that some of our members have been bringing in outside food/drinks into PJ’s, as empty packaging has been found. We are sorry to mention this but our host venue work’s hard not just for us, but also it’s other patrons and we need to look after our venue.
- When not on the Mat’s please remember to wear Shoe’s on your feet, this not only protects your paws from broken glass, various individuals from stepping on toes and of course from getting hurt. This is also a bar requirement and not something we can chose to ignore.
- Gear is admired, but not required to attend any and all of VANP-PAH’s events.
- Consent is not just mandatory, it is also sexy!
