                                                     Corgi Picnics


Throughout the year in various parts of the country, "corgi picnics" are held.  Those that benefit CorgiAid (as a fundraiser) will be listed here according to date and location.  Please check back periodically for information on the picnic closest to you.

Corgi picnics usually feature fun (games and contests), food (what the corgis and most humans like the very best!) and fundraising.  So if you have never attended one, think about helping out CorgiAid and having a wonderful day!

Oh, yes, you don't need a corgi to attend.  All other dogs/pets are designated Honorary Corgis for the day!

Please note that on the email addresses, you must cut and paste them on a message and change "at" to "@". This is to prevent spammers from using these addresses.
***Some states have more than one picnic planned, please read each state's information carefully!

A Woodinville Corgi Afternoon
Leo & Kathy Notenboom's home
Woodinville, WA
May 30, 2009, noon-whenever
All are welcome: corgis, part corgis and NAC (not-a-corgi)
friends. The rule is simple: all MUST be well behaved, and
play well with others - this applies to both canine and
humans alike.
We will provide beverages. You're welcome to bring a snack
to share, but please be prepared to take leftovers with you,
as we always have more than needed.
PLEASE RSVP by 5/27 so we know how big a Costco run to make.
Directions on request.
One small clarification: this is just a get-together, and
not the "official" Corgi Picnic. That will happen sometime
late July, early August and will include an auction for
Corgi-Aid at that time. Same place, though.

Above is the Blessing of the Animals, next is the Best Tail Contest, and to the left, Mama Precious and her seven dear little pups who all found homes.

Above is the Best Costume contest and below that, Barnianne (whitely corgi), Teddy (red and white corgi) and Pookie (honorary corgi, formerly a Papillion) take a little nap.

Mandy, a cardigan corgi, shows off her trick in the Best Trick contest. She sang along with her owner!  And all fluffies have a special contest in Best Fluffy.  Here they are judged by a real, live AKC judge!
