there is a Convention at the Fredericksburg VA convention center Oct 7th.
I have been given a few free booths for it, and I already gave one booth to the ADOA. I have one more booth left, and it has to go to a rescue group. The rescue group that goes gets part of the proceeds from the show.
now, the kicker is it will be ALOT of bully breeders.. yes i know, BUT, the woman who is running this that gave me the 2 free booths so that rescue and BSL opposers can go and at least be heard.. The woman Deanna also wants someone to speak on the stage about BSL, and how it harms the breed..
now, if people can just get along at this expo, breeders and rescuers, this could be a good thing.
Anyway,here is the info for any rescue in VA or close that wants the booth..
If you know of a good rescue that can take the booth for the event, that is great, the rescue will get part of the proceeds donated to them. And a BSL speaker would be awesome:
now, i know how many of us feel about breeders, BUT, this is a chance at a FREE booth at an expo and a chance to talk to everyone on stage...soo, if any reputable rescue wants to go, please email Deanna at firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes it will be free for who I select. Thank you Mary Ellen. I also contacted adoa and they are still a go!
It is Oct 7th 2006. It just has to be a rescue that will co- exist with breeders. Hence they are holding the convention. Its will be in Fredricksburg , Va.
heard someone was complaining over the weekend that all this other promotion we have been doing for the October event has nothing to do with BSL.
Well, they are wrong.
Why are people always so negative?
We will have speakers there to talk about BSL's and how to fight them.
We will have people on hand to give out information on BSL's.
We will make fighting BSL's the main focus of the event!
We need to get people there.
We advertised some of the top dogs in the breed as attending.
Why? Because dog lovers will want to come to see them.
We included Music, models, cars, bikes, etc..
Why? To draw in more people.
The real important part is us a representatives of the breed, have to show the dogs in a positive way.
That's what this is really about.
Promoting the breed in a positive way.
These different types of promotion are what make this event unique.
This time we are drawing people in by the masses, and not just our regular community.
This is the first time we have had a venue with this many people attending.
This is our chance to promote our breed in a positive way, and have thousands of people seeing them.
All the negative publicity around our breed, it was time for something positive.
This is why we have surrounded the event with other things.
All of that is to draw in people and hopefully show off our breed to them different than they have ever seen before!
So stop with the negativity and that other crap! That only adds more negativity to the breed. Don't knock it until you try it, well at least we are trying something.
Some things I am sure of:
It will be fun!
The dogs will get some positive promotion.
New people will experience our breed and community.
This is the first time the East Coast has had an event like this.
We have spent over $50,000 to pull this off.
So yes, we will promote in many different ways to draw in a crowd.
But, yes we will address and hopefully make an impact on BSL's!
People make the laws, we need to change alot of peoples perceptions of the breed.
The media has been our enemy.
This time let's create our own media and fight back with positive publicity!
If you want to be negative, then you are a cancer within our breed!
We are doing this for the breed
