AMCUK Rescue Scottish Funday 2013 by Carol Ewart
Is that a year already? Doesn’t it just fly past, the AMCUK Rescue Fun day in Strathclyde Country Park is upon us again. I arrive at 7.30 am it is –3* and I am thinking to myself why am I doing this again? My phone is resounding to the sound of a half dozen texts, I take it out of my pocket to see Kuruk’s big smiley face beaming at me and I know exactly why I am doing it again, without fundraising events like these AMCUK Rescue could not carry on with the amazing work they do, educating, supporting and rehoming our fabulous breed.
Scott had already arrived with the burger van and was setting up. Tracey Elder was already there walking her samoyeds, and I thought 'ok let’s get this show on the road!'.
Scott made us cups of tea as the volunteers rolled in. The Scottish Sleddog Society arrive with their gazebos, PA system and endless enthusiasm and energy, quickly followed by David and Louise Ezzi, Lindsay Cloughley, Rebecca Thayer, Lesley and Ian Winning who all immediately begin to set out their own areas for their demos and have-a-go. It is rather cold and hammering in stakes and building gazebos isn’t easy wearing gloves.
Everyone is unbelievably focussed and really get down to work, other volunteers start to arrive, Jacqueline Walker and her 81 year old Mother (I’m sure she won’t object to me giving away her age) appear with mountains of cakes that Jacqueline’s Mum had spent the entire previous evening baking, then Nicola brought the most amazing cupcakes, the cake stall looked fabulous. Wendy Stewart eventually managed to set up her microchipping stall after running around organising all the prizes.
The volunteers just kept coming. Lisa and Linda Mansell arrived with Kerrie Francis ready to roll up their sleeves for the love of the mallies. Anne and Tony returned for a second year to run the weight pull and lure chase have-a-go (didn’t those guys have a enough after last year?!) the list of volunteers and supporters is huge.
By 10am when Ian Addison begins his compere stint the visitors are already waiting to go. From the very beginning the exhibitors are queuing up to enter the 12 novelty show classes. Heather Gardiner had a great entry and worked tirelessly throughout the day.
It is an action packed day with lots of activities for everyone to enjoy from have-a-go on rigs, scooters, bikejor, weigh pull, canicross, clicker training, lure chase to educational talks and demos on equipment, grooming, obedience. The cake stall is a sell out as is the tombola where the many winners are delighted with some great prizes. The raffle scores high in the popularity stakes with so many fantastic prizes up for grabs, provided by some very generous supporters, thank you to Christine Meerman for accumulating such a great haul.
If I have a favourite part of the day it has to be the ‘Rescue Parade’ which for me can be a little emotional, to see the success stories and how happy, well cared for and loved these dogs are now really brings it home as to why we do this. It is a busy, action packed and if I’m honest tiring day which I hope all enjoyed as much as I did.
Saying thank you just doesn’t seem to adequately cover it, the supporters, volunteers and most importantly YOU who attended, bought raffle tickets, entered show classes and ate cakes are the people who make these events a success, you are the people who make it possible to save/rehome some of these fantastic dogs so from me a HUGE THANK YOU !!
Oh and I never did get that cup of tea ;)
The AMCUK Rescue Scottish Funday 2013 is being hosted and hugely supported by SSS and huge thanks go to Carol Ewart for organising this.
All proceeds will go to AMCUK Rescue.
AMCUK Rescue and SSS really hope you can come along to join in the fun and support a wonderful day which in turn will support the Alaskan Malamutes that may need AMCUK Rescue's help now and in the future.
Crufts.... This year was the first time AMCUK Rescue had been invited to attend Crufts under the
newly ‘Find a Rescue dog’ section with the stand.
The day went amazing, lots of breed questions asked and answered and a great opportunity to show the world just how busy rescues are due to the unnecessary breedings and also due to some irresponsible dog owners.
The stand also acted as a great resource point as there were current Malamute owners who were seeking advice on behaviour and wanted useful contacts to explore.
£63.77 was raised – so thank you to the wonderful kind people who donated as they passed.
Anna from Catua had a grand idea about tickets and managed to raise £50.00 for AMCUK Rescue – thanks for that Anna!
Photos to follow from Crufts shortly!
