Saga Halloween fundraiser 2008

Sunday was Saga's annual fundraiser held at BC's bar. The weather was totally on our side and the rain held off until about 6pm by which time we didn't give a monkeys whether we got wet or not.
As can be seen by a selection of the many photo's taken on the day it was very well supported with alot of effort being put in on both the animal and children's costumes.

Robert with his fantastic moluccan cockatoo enjoying some pampering with a toothbrush.

Robert has had this bird for years and is very knowledgeable about the breed and especially this ones likes and dislikes.

This wee dog looked the part when he got off the golf cart but things started to go amiss once prancing around the place.

This was a fantastic entry and very colourful addition to the day.

These two were a bit shy and trying to keep cool, one very pink dog with his tutu friend.

This dog was great along with his owner who I lost at the time of the picture, I checked out the eye patch and it had been put in place for the day only. I believe this is the one of the winners.

People starting to arrive, it was supposed to start at 12pm but as usual we were all on Belize time.
The sun even came out to give us a hand and encouraged a few passersby to take a seat and have a beer or two.
Dennis Wolf and the usual suspects were on hand to break up the afternoons events.

Once the games and competitions started there was really a good crowd gathered to watch and participate.
Same gang different venue, you may spot a familiar face or two from Pedro's bar and of course the man himself is right there in the middle of it all.

Clearing the tent for the fancy dress competition.

It was all thirsty work for the dogs and their owners, plenty of fluids all round and of course lots of Belikin for the adult beverage's.

Mom and son dressed up for the day.

This little trio was one of my favourites of the day.

Silvia responsible for all the great barbeque's that people ate all day long, that lady can cook!

Thanks to the absolutely fantastic BC staff a few of us had sore heads the next day but they truly did themselves proud and kept the us going all day long.

Three very tired but happy volunteers, myself, Eileen from Dandes frozen custard and Marie from Gheko Graphics having a couple of well deserved drinks.

Another fundraiser over, a chunk of money was raised and the awareness of Saga, which is always a result as it is totally a non-profit organisation.
