2013 - Here's the update on the new Grey Play site for our spring Coastal Greys playgroup dates. We will be playing/running/romping at Empie Park softball field. Grey Play will be on the following Sunday afternoons from 2 - 4 PM: February 24th, March 24th, April 28th, May 19th and June 16th. There is a minimal usage fee, so we will have a donation jar to cover costs. Plan to bring chairs, blankets/beds, water, muzzles, and poop bags. We will set up outside of the rightfield fence under some trees for shade. I'll have all entrances to the field (other than the gate along rightfield) blocked off, as well as the dugout areas - for sanitary reasons. It is a public park, so we can double up our purpose and have a Meet and Greet in conjunction with Grey Play. That way our older dogs can come and represent, though they may be unable to run. There are nearby tennis and basketball courts. On the other side of the complex there is a public dog park. I encourage those of us with collars, leashes, necklaces, etc… of a greyhound ilk, to come and vend (with a portion going to GFNC of course.)
