Consider yourself a member of an exclusive group: The League of Extraordinary Greyhounds! Mid-South Greyhound Adoption Option will be celebrating its extraordinary greyhounds and their adopters at the 2014 annual reunion at Southland Park Gaming and Racing.
The theme evokes a Steampunk vibe, and attendees are encouraged to dress themselves and their dogs in keeping with this fun concept. We can’t wait to see what people will come up with!
For those unfamiliar with the term, Steampunk is a science-fiction niche that centers on steam-powered machinery, generally with a Victorian or post-apocalyptic twist. If you’ve seen “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” or the “Wild Wild West” flick from a few years back, you’ll get the idea.
The celebration is set for Oct. 11, 2014, at Southland Park Gaming and Racing in West Memphis, Arkansas. Here are the things you need to know:
Time: 5:30 p.m. (Dinner served at 7:30 p.m.)
Dress: Business casual (or theme-related costume).
Tickets: $25 per adult in advance ($30 at the door), $10 for children
RSVP: By using the form below or calling (870) 735-7317
Activities: Cocktail hour, parade of adopted dogs on the race track, contests and shopping galore with auctions and vendors!
Entry/Parking: Due to ongoing construction, parking will be different than in previous years. Maps will be posted when they become available.
Registration: A form is provided in an announcement below. If you are on the MSGAO mailing list, you’ll get a form in the mail.
Anyone who has attended a previous reunion will tell you how much fun the Live and Silent Auctions are. The auctions are two of MSGAO’s biggest fund raisers for the year. Donations of auction items, greyhound-related and otherwise, are now being accepted. If you have something to donate, or if you know of a business that would be willing to donate a product or service, please let Director Vicki Cohen know as soon as possible. Auction donations should be received by Oct. 1. Cash donations to help with Reunion expenses are always appreciated!
