Weasels Dancing in the Park
When: Saturday, August 6
Time: 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Where: in Hammerle Park, West Linn, Oregon
We're looking forward to seeing all of our ferret-loving friends at our biggest event of the year. Games for the ferrets, DJ music, raffles, and a live auction are all in our plan. This year's theme is Star Trek. So get your ferrets beamed down and get ready for a live auction that has lots of Star Trek items as well as tons of ferrety goodness!
Here is a rough timeline:
- 10:00 to 11:30 a.m.: Registration
- 12:00 p.m.: Auction
- 1:30 p.m.: Games
There will also be many items for sale, as well as games for the humans. Our mini-Plinko game will be a great way to win small prizes for you or your ferret. There will be Star Trek ferret bedding and other Star Trek items for sale. We will also have many non-Star Trek items for sale and for auction, such as ferret artwork, goodie-filled baskets for both pets and humans, and some more fun stuff you can win.
In all, it will be a very fun day for Star Trek fans and non-Star Trek fans alike.
Friends of Ferrets July 2016 Meeting
Date: Saturday, July 9
Time: 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Where: Sara Munz's new place (congrats!) at 10336 N Allegheny in Portland
Come and enjoy one of the best meetings we have in the ferret community -- the summer meeting! On the agenda, we have the upcoming Weasels Dancing in the Park (August 6th) and sew days (we need one, I think. Well, I need one. I have been rather unmotivated in the sewing department lately.).
There will also be a potluck dinner. Historically, we have had a BBQ theme, but I don't know what Sara Munz's BBQ setup entails. So we'll just keep the instructions to a minimum:
Guests should bring an entree dish if they are coming alone, and if there are two or more in the party, bring an entree dish and a salad or dessert. Or if you don't have a lot of money, bring whatever you can. No food will be turned away.
There will also be a raffle to feed the OFS ferrets. Tickets are $1.
Also, you are welcome to bring a housewarming gift for Sara if you didn't get a chance to get her one before. (She doesn't know I am writing this. I hope she isn't embarrassed. But I have always been bummed that I didn't get her one before, so I am writing this now if any of you are in the same boat.)
Healthy ferrets are welcome to join the play group.
So come and have a great time!
