IMPORTANT INFORMATION IFYOU'RE COMING TO THE KANSAS CORGI GATHERING:

As we get closer to the FOURTH ANNUAL KANSAS CORGI GATHERING, there are a few things to mention.

Most importantly; BE MINDFUL OF YOUR DOG(S). If you know she can get overly excited or somewhat aggressive with a large pack of dogs please make arrangements to keep him contained either with a crate, x-pen or on leash. The same goes for a shy, less confident dog. Give him a safe place and don't over stress them.

Rabble-rousers will not be tolerated and could be asked to leave. NO EXCUSES.

First off - Please pick up after yourself and your dog(s). The people who so graciously let us use their facility free of charge do so because we have left it as clean as we found it in years past. Every bit you don't think is important enough to pick up leaves more for me and my husband to do at the end of the day. This includes inside and outside the arena.

Secondly - There is NO fee for this event and NO pre-registration. You will be asked to sign in however.

Thirdly - There is no meal planned so if you think you or your dog will starve during the 3-hour event, bring a snack! Water is available for all.

4 - BYOC: Bring your own chair. Set up camp.

5 - Please do NOT bring any dogs that are:
a)not current on vaccinations - although we will not ask for proof 
b) in heat (season)
c) sick in any way

6 - Restrooms are available in the arena.

And lastly: KEEP IT FUN!

Hogs and Dogs or anything else that can go down the highway - this ride is open to them all!

This is the original fund-raiser for Corgi Connection and it's our fourth year doin' it, so it's bound to be good!

The ride is about 100 miles of beautiful Kansas Flint Hills scenery and it's open to any highway legal vehicle.  Great prizes for winning hands and last year's money raffle netted more than $1,000 which meant the winner got $500 and Corgi Connection got $500. In addition there are prizes to be given away after the money raffle.

Can't make it? You can still participate! We have absentee hands and anyone can be a part of the money raffle; you don't have to be present to win that money, but you do have to be present to win the top hands.

More than $500 was in the 50-50 pot and the winner of half which was $255 gave $100 of that back to Corgi Connection! Overall, about $2,000.00 was raised for Corgi Connection. This will help immensley with veterinary bills, insurance and hopefully to get 501(c)3 status making next year's contributions tax deductible!

Want to meet other Corgi owners?

Let Me Hear from You!

Corgi Connection would like to know if there are other Corgi Crazy People who would like to gather for a corgi picnic in Kansas. There are many states that have Corgi gatherings with great success. Ideally I would like it to be a fund-raiser for CorgiAid which has helped Corgi Connection tremendously with medical expenses on dogs it has rescued.
I'm open for suggestions as to what kind of event Corgi people might like to particpate in and would like to hear from corgi owners. I don't anticipate doing anything this fall but would think about spring time!

Cruisin' for Canines is a success!


What a terrific turnout we had for our first fund-raiser. About 40 bikes participated in the event along with an old convertible. The weather didn't look good that morning, but the afternoon turned out great!
Prizes were awarded at the end of the ride and Corgi Connection has paid some veterinary bills and will be able to help more dogs!
Thanks to everyone who participated and supported the cause! Special thanks for the volunteers who helped: Jim and Keri Parker and daughter Hannah; Edna Kidwell, Rebecca Taylor; Lisa Carson, Ethel Drube, Patty Harrington and Chelsea McNeil. Couldn't have done it without you!

Below: The ride concluded at Coach's Grill and Bar where motorcycles took over the parking lot.
