Beach Retreat Lodgers
Day of Arrival
This is memo #2 designed to help you get ready for camp. The first memo was about booking extra days at the Beach Retreat if you wish to extend your time in Lake Tahoe, and a reminder to have a copy of your rabies certificate or titers ready to bring to camp (or email it ahead of time to Nicole-one less thing to do at the last minute!). It also includes a list of very dog friendly places here in Tahoe to take your pooch for a nice lunch or snack prior to check-in.
Here are your day of arrival instructions: IF YOU ARE STAYING AT THE BEACH RETREAT & LODGE CHECK IN THERE FIRST! Once your dog gets to the 4H they will be too excited to leave! This way you can check in, drop off your luggage, and head over to the 4H with nothing left to worry about. After checking in at the Beach Retreat drive on over to the 4H Campground & complete your registration process. This is where we will collect your paperwork, give you your swag bags and get you oriented to the facilities & schedule. You will have a chance to visit with old friends & make new ones before dinner at the 4H camp.
Check in at the Beach Retreat begins at 3:30.
You will check in at the hotels front desk and give them a credit/debit card for incidentals and will get your room keys.
Drop-off your luggage and get settled in.
Head on over to the 4H facility. You will be texted via group text the gate code for the 4H facility at 3:30. You will not be able to get in before that time.
Check-in with Wild Blue Dogs registration, located at the 4H Main Lodge.
KEEP YOUR DOG ON LEASH!
DO NOT BRING THEM TO THE REGISTRATION TABLE
Settle them by the picnic tables or benches, with plenty of space between dogs (they might be a little nervous when they first arrive and cramming them all together at the registration table is a bad idea).
DO NOT GO ANYWHERE ELSE! YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ROAM THE GROUNDS or BEACH UNTIL YOUR PAPERWORK IS DONE!
I will need a copy of your rabies vaccination or titers (DO NOT FORGET THIS-I CAN NOT ADMIT YOU TO ANY EVENT WITHOUT IT-NOT EVEN DINNER!)
You will sign 3 release forms. Two are photographic releases saying that we can photograph you and your dog and use the images commercially. The other form is a standard limited liability release.
You can then roam the grounds, go down to the beach or where ever your heart desires-just make sure that you show up in time for Yappy Hour at 5:30 and dinner at the 4H Main Lodge (the area where you registered) about 6:15/6:30.
After dinner you will have time to toilet your dog(s) and we will have a brief welcome and Q & A session, and then off to bed for a good nights sleep.
Next morning activities begin with doga at 7:15am and breakfast at 8:15.
