This year’s Airedale Fun Day is going to be a very special event. This annual extravaganza is for every Airedale fan – whether you have a show dog or a family pet, whether you and your Airedale participate in obedience events, agility, barn hunt, nose work, dock diving, fly ball, CATC walks, or just like to play and chill out together. What could be better than watching our dogs playing games and having fun with their people and each other?
Have you ever had the feeling that your Airedale must have Superpowers? What exactly are they? Fun Day will give you an opportunity to think about that. We’ll have our classic games, cast in the manner of Superhero adventures, but some things will be new and different.
When you check in, be prepared to choose a Superhero name and persona for your dog. We’ll have a list of names to choose from, or you can create your own on the spot. What is that hero’s mission, and what kind of Superpowers does he or she have?
This year’s costume contest will feature an “improv” format – no need to craft a costume ahead of time. All the resources will be provided:
· Costume elements such as masks, capes, helmets, etc. · Defensive equipment such as shields, armor, etc. · Weapons such as swords, cudgels, spears.
Each of these three categories will have a limit, so participants must choose carefully! Combine the costume elements to define your dog’s Superhero persona and use your wits to improvise a description of this hero’s mission and how he or she fulfills it. Our panel of judges will decide who had the most creative story and costume, and “which dog wore it better.”
Other activities with a different twist will include a new relay, “Race to Save the Globe,” and of course, the ever-popular potluck lunch, for which you are encouraged to bring, what else – Super Foods. Of course, Super Desserts will also be most welcome!
Fun Day 2019 will be the best yet. We’ll see you there!
