State and Individual Raffle Baskets
« on: July 14, 2016, 10:01:58 PM »
Hi All,

Just wondering what folks are up to with baskets for this year's raffle in UT?   Anyone want to share ideas for the new folks?

Oregon Peeps,
We are collecting Oregon related "stuff".   Anyone have an idea for a "basket" to put the stuff in?

This is one of the really fun parts of the Championships (not that it isn't ALL FUN!)    Collecting theme items either state or club and seeing it all come together is a thrill.

So Cal has been tossing around some ideas, and Dayle Shimamura has stepped to be our leader and has come up with a really cute holder for our goodies...yea Dayle. 

While some group stick to one theme, we leave it open for folks to bring what they want.  In the past folks brought things that represented California, San Diego, Orange County.  Agility items.  Goodies for the dogs and handler.  Just a cornucopia of great things.   ;)

The season starts sometime in April and runs into August, with July the peak.  Like most of our crops, produce in Southern California ripen first, then slowly moves north.  Unfortunately by Champs the crop is mostly gone.  If I can find some, I'll bring you some.

We do usually have some Southern California wines in the basket.....   8)

I believe I am the only one coming to Champs from Virginia.  I want to put something together for a state basket.  If anyone from Virginia would like to contribute, please bring your "items" to one of the following trials:  Periland this weekend, PawZazz next weekend, BAD at the end of August and/or Star City Sept. 17-18.  Local people, call me and I'll arrange to pick up - 540-776-1571.   If you have something small and would like to send it to me, here is my mailing address:  6035 Steeplechase Dr.  Roanoke, VA 24018 
Thanks in advance!

Just so folks know, raffle items don't have to be a "basket" and individuals or businesses are welcome to put together raffle items as well.  You just never know who might want to join in the fun!

Will there be a workers raffle as in the past?

Besides So CA's main "basket", Palomar Agility Club wants to donate to the worker's raffle as well.

There will be a volunteer raffle.  Becky Spring coordinates it and collects items all year.  It never ceases to amaze me how much really nice items she finds in purple.  I still us a certain little purple heater each winter!
I'm sure Becky would appreciate any additional items folks want to donate.
Our volunteers are invaluable and  get treated generously with worker raffle tickets.

It isn't too early to start thinking about volunteering!

Think Purple!

I know the Front Range Colorado folks are putting their heads/baskets together for a big 'un.
Of COURSE, there will be a separate and lovely UTAH item as well.
And I have a few things for the workers raffle too!

Start saving those bucks and mailing labels!
