January Events and PAH Tour 2018

Take a look at our January events including hosting the 1st weekend of the PAH Tour!

Unknown

VAN-PAH Puppy-Tails Social

Friday, January 5th from 8 til 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 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. DJ starts around 10pm for those that want to dance. Spread the word and lets all have a fun time.

 

January Mosh

Mosh Time

Join the pups and Handlers of VAN-PAH for our regular monthly mosh!
Saturday January 6th from 2:00pm – 4:00pm @ 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!

 

VAN-PAH Invades the Stanley Park Bright Nights Train

When: January 6th Meet at 6:30 near the gates.

Where: Bright Nights is located on Pipeline Road in Stanley Park, via the West Georgia Street park entrance.

What: Come join the pups and Handlers of VAN-PAH as we invade the Stanley Park Bright Nights train to help celebrate PAH Tour 2018! It’s the last night to enjoy this fun train and look at the pretty lights. It will probably be chilly so bundle up.

We are happy to announce that we are planning on doing a group buy as well. This means that the ticket price will be $8 per person. We are also happy to announce our very first Members’ price. If you are a member of VAN-PAH the cost will be $5. You’ll be able to get your membership at the mosh earlier that day if you  haven’t yet!

In order to take advantage of the group buy and/or the lower member rate you’ll need to RSVP to vanpah@gmail.com by the end of the day on the Dec 21st. Then you’ll find a VAN-PAH officer near the gate to pay and get your ticket. If you do not RSVP you will not be included in the group buy. This means you will need to get tickets at the gate etc (full price is just over $10 online) and cannot be guaranteed a seat on the same train as the rest of the group.

 

January Walkies to Laser Tag

Come join the pups and Handlers of VAN-PAH for our monthly walkies!

January 21st 2017 – 6:00pm – Planet Lazer E 109 Braid Street, New Westminster (Near Braid Skytrain Station)

Fire away fire away! In a safe way that is! This was a lot of fun last year so let’s have a blast. Cost is $5.25 per person per game. No masks/hoods but wear your pet shirts that glow!
