VAN-PAH General Announcement
Thank you for taking the time to read through this months Howl, it contains all the latest and relevant information.
Thank you to those who took the time out to fill in the Christmas Survey Mosh, the info you have provided was very interesting.
It will also help shape the Christmas Mosh, so stay tuned for more Holiday information.
Another Survey will be released next week, this will be to help facilitate your voice to be heard at the upcoming AGM. The questions will be related to VANPAH and will be another opportunity to have your say, as your board we can only do so much. These surveys are your opportunity to anonymously give back feedback, just remember to be constructive, no short answers and think about what you want to say.
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.
VAN-PAH Puppy-Tails Social
DJ starts around 10pm for those that want to dance. Spread the word and lets all have a fun time.
VAN-PAH November 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!
*Always remember puppy gear is admired but never required! WAGS!
Walkies to Bowling
Friday, November 15th at 6:30 PM @ Rev’s Burnaby, 5502 Lougheed Highway, Burnaby
Looking for a way to get your paws on a bunch of balls? (Did someone say BALL?!?!?!)
November walkies will be at Rev’s Bowling in Burnaby on Friday November 15th. Puppies, handlers, friends, and fun! Rev’s is located within a few minutes’ walk of Holdom Skytrain station, and serves both food and alcohol.
Please RSVP to Scooby via Telegram (He is in the BC chat) or VANPAH email: firstname.lastname@example.org (Please but VANPAH bowling in the subject) by Friday November 8th so we can be sure to have enough room for everyone and more importantly exact numbers for attendance. As Scooby will be handling the booking for the event.
**THIS IS IMPORTANT** As VANPAH will be paying for you to play, if you do not RSVP you will have to pay for your own game. This also means you will have to be a current/registered Member so you must present your Membership card upon arrival.
Masks and gear are encouraged! Come out and have some fun with us!
Membership Reminder: It’s that time of year when the Second 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 VAN-PAH’s events.
- Consent is not just mandatory, it is also sexy!
