CanAm 2013 Meet and Greet Gift Basket Exchange (reminder)

ally@dogzworth.com
 

Thanks again to everyone that already emailed me about the basket exchange.
In case you missed the first message here's the re-send:

It's back!!! The CanAm "Meet and Greet Gift Basket Exchange"! Previous
basket exchanges were such a hit- we're doing it again. This is a great way
for your club to meet clubs from other regions. Each participating club
would both give and receive a basket. We will assign clubs to each other and
let you know in advance to whom you are giving your basket. What should you
include? Use your creativity and imagination! It can be a theme basket of
items that are only found in your region, state or province. It could be a
snack basket for the people. Or, perhaps you want to give something that is
just for the dogs. It doesn't have to be extravagant, just something fun you
want to share. Don't have a basket? No worries, just put the items in a gift
bag.

If your club would like to be included in the meet and greet exchange please
email me at ally@..., by Friday Sept 20. Your email should include
your club name, region and the size of your club (how many people are
attending the CanAm). I will let you know by Oct 4 what club you will be
gifting so that you can plan and make purchases for your basket/bag. I will
assign you a club, provide the club name and number of people attending the
CanAm. There will be no organized time for the gift exchange. Each club will
deliver their baskets at their own convenience. Let me know if you have any
questions.
Have Fun!

Coming to CanAm and feeding raw food?

ally@dogzworth.com
 

In years past we’ve heard that raw feeders travelling to CanAm have had difficulty continuing their raw prey model feeding routine due to travel restrictions.

 

Indianapolis raw food co-op Raw Paws Inc has agreed to deliver pre-ordered fresh frozen product and fresh frozen bones to CanAm on Thursday (6pm), Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons (3-5pm).  RPI offers products conducive to a Prey Model diet and will waive the requirement to be a co-op member for the CanAm deliveries.

 

For guaranteed delivery, your order must be in by October 12.  Orders placed after October 12 will be filled as product is available. Designate your delivery day by choosing one of the NAFA CanAm shipping options (Thur, Fri, Sat, Sun) under Shipping Rates during the checkout process.

 

Meet the delivery truck in the North Ticket lobby (the end of the building where the Concession Stand is located) to pick up your order.

 

Raw Paws website is found at www.rawpaws.org.  Click on Store, and agree to the disclaimer to see the products. Ground products are found in the BRB section, fresh frozen bones are found in the BRB section and in the RPI Bones section.

Election - ballot verification process

Kim Davis <kim.davis@...>
 

This year’s election will again be conducted electronically.  No ballots will be mailed.  All voters must have a valid email address on file with NAFA to receive a ballot.  Voters include:  club owners, regional directors, approved and supervising judges, and board members.

We are asking that all voters go through the confirmation process.  This will confirm that we have a valid email address.  The email you receive will also indicate how many votes you have earned for this election.  Please see the current rulebook at www.flyball.org for the specific vote allocations. 

If you do not go through the verification process, we’ll have to send your ballot to the email address we have on file. 

Please note that this is a TWO step process:

Step 1 – go to www.nafaflyball.com/database/eballot_signup.php, input your name and email address.  Once you are found in the database, you’ll be sent a confirmation email.

Step 2 – after you receive the confirmation email, click on the link and make sure that your address has been verified.

If you have any trouble during the process, please send an email to elections@... or leerie@.... If you need to update your email address (we have a few voters who have no email address on file), please send an email to crn@... 

Please complete the confirmation process by November 20, 2013.  We are hoping to have ballots sent out by December 2, 2013.  Voting will end January 16, 2014 and results will be announced at the Annual General Meeting on January 18, 2014 in Denver, CO.
