    I’m stressed I am fed up so I am writing a list of what still needs to be done :D

    • Plan the layout of stalls, rings and displays
    • Complete risk assessment
    • Send out indemnity forms to stall holders
    • Send out information
    • Design banner to display at Torpoint Ferry
    • Design posters to display in local shops
    • Start hassling radio stations, local press
    • Complete schedule
    • Compile and print show brochure
    • SCREAM!!!
    • Check all parts of the gazebo are still present and correct
    • Sort all parts for the walkie talkies
    • Collect the loud hailer thing
    • Get tables for stalls
    • Get food for the Woofworths pick and mix
    • Sort stuff for tombola
    • Sort stuff for raffle
    • Last minute seeking of sponsors for raffle prizes
    • Arrange for float for each stall
    • Contact volunteers to see if they will still volunteer
    • PANIC!!!!
    • Sort medals/trophies for poster competition winners
    • Print certificates and get them signed by MP
    • Contact judges to ensure all is in order

    So far today I have managed to get Friday 20th and Monday 23rd may off, now just need to work out how to get all the stuff to the park! Need to sort beagle Welfare stall so hubby can sit there all day and do very little :rolleyes:

    Hey it’s not looking so bad now :D

    I had a PM the other day asking me for advice on organising a dog show...to be fair the only advice I could honestly offer was "DON'T DO IT" :D

    Seriously though after the event I will feel great but at the moment feel completely out of my depth :eek:

    three weeks and one day to go and I've gone and changed the venue :eek:

    No I've not gone crazy....yet :D but I have good reasons for it.

    Hubbys going away tomorrow and I have the whole house to myself naturally I'll have the girls around but in between I am planning to paint banners, print posters and talk dad into driving me around SE cornwall and Plymouth with posters :D

    A good friend from here has offered to look after Buster on the day and now I feel much happier about things.

    I was a bit touched today by one of the county councillors who has offered the use of a marquee, Town Council who will provide tables and chairs, Scouts who will do refreshments and food. The local newspaper reporter, MP and park committee. I do have a lot of support and many people are grateful I'm making the effort. I hope this boost of confidence lasts now as I may just pull this off :D

    If it wasn't the day of the dog show I'd help :D

    But as I will be up from 7:30am getting ready to go then it may be a struggle...in fact I don't think I'll sleep Saturday night :(

    I think we'll skip breakie and grab something else elsewhere.

    We can come help out in the day set up etc if you wish? x

    Aww thanks hun that's really kind :)

    I have actually just called the Town Council to see if we can have sole use of the park from 6pm Sat night onwards...it's lockable so am hoping it's OK :)

    I am meeting with our agility trainer tomorrow at 1pm to measure and discuss.

    I am meeting with a few other people this week. I still have to make 3 more banners, and print posters.

    I'm so close to being ready...I'm just panicking about everything...need to chill :D

    I'm soooooo stressed!!! :eek:

    OK now that's out of the way :D

    I went out to do some legal graffitiing last night - by that I mean banners and posters attached to any permanent fixture :D

    [​IMG]

    Whilst putting the poster up I turned to my mum and said wow people are already really interested they are reading the poster...then we realised that I was falling out the top of my t-shirt and they were not looking at the poster :rolleyes: chaos just follows me around :D

    [​IMG]

    Still a fair bit to do :( and motivation levels are dwindling...need another kick up the bum!!

    need to contact stall holders today...contact poster winners...sort schedule!!

    My last day of leave so back to work next week :( gonna miss Buster and Millie but most of all the realisation that there's 2 weeks until the event has sent me into a panic :(

    Meeting Sue&harvey on Saturday for drinkies and we may just discuss the dog show :D

    Still need a willing volunteer to look after one manic but lovable beagle... anyone?

    Contacting local radio and press today... had an invite to speak live 'on air' on the morning :eek: think I'll start delegating soon :D

    Arrrrrrrggggggghhhhhhhh where is May going? :eek:
