There is such a thing as a FREE LUNCH!

We are having Walking Taco Lunch (chili over corn chips with all the fixings) at the GPA/Nashville picnic this year. If you register ahead of time online, there will be a free lunch for you! We will have a limited number of extra lunches, and they will cost $3 each at the picnic. For dessert Lil-Mikey's Gourmet Italian Ice will have Ice cream and Italian Ice for sale. A portion of their proceeds will be donated to help greyhounds and greyhound adoption.

Shop for the Hounds

The GPAN booth will be open for all things greyhound -- PJs for hounds, coats, snoods, knitted dogs & more. Bring any used collar in good condition & get $2 off the purchase of a new martingale or tag collar. Or just donate your used collars and we'll give them to local galgo adoption. Got questions? gpanashville@gmail.com


Alert:

The water spigot at our new picnic site doesn't work. So our hounds have plenty of water to drink, please bring water in clean plastic containers - gallon milk jug, cat litter pail - you get the idea. Carter Newton will recycle empty jugs.


Note: This is a greyhound-only event. Please leave other-breed dogs at home.
