Fun for Cavaliers, families and friends
What better than spending a happy day out with your Cavalier/s, family and friends? You can do just this at the next Cavalier Capers fun day on Sunday 20th November. Come along for a great day out, either competing in the fun events and games or watching from a shady spot.

Cavalier Capers is held at the Beefacres Reserve, Pittwater Crescent, Windsor Gardens. There are plenty of shady gum trees at this venue, so bring along a picnic rug or some folding chairs so you can relax comfortably.

Activities start at 10.30 am and continue until approximately 3.00 pm. Entry to the event is free and people (with or without a Cavalier) are welcome to come and go whenever they please. Barbecue food, delicious dessert, cool drinks, tea and coffee will be available.

Events and games are run during the day with ribbons and prize bags of goodies awarded to all first, second and third place-getters. A small entry fee of 50 cents is charged for each event.

The Junior and Senior Fancy Dress classes are very popular, with some owners dressing themselves and their Cavaliers in matching or complimentary costumes. Events for the Best Groomed Cavalier and the Cavalier in Best Weight and Condition are always well contested and other events include Cavalier Most Like Its Owner, Waggiest Tail, Best Matched Pair of Cavaliers, Egg and Spoon Race and Sausage Race. Spin The Cavalier is a game of chance (like Spin The Bottle) and the smaller children can have fun with Pass The Parcel.

Lots of edible and other interesting goodies will be available for purchase from the bring and buy Trading Table, but be warned, the best items are snapped up very quickly so it is a good idea to have a look over the trading table earlier in the day. Dog brushes, combs and other canine care items will also be available for sale, as will 2017 Cavalier calendars.

Anyone with a sweet tooth and can try to win a jar of jelly beans by correctly guessing how many jelly beans are in the jar.

Experienced Cavalier breeders will be on hand during the day to answer any questions about Cavaliers and their care and grooming and to offer advice on any problems owners may have come across with their own Cavaliers. And if you don't like cutting your Cavalier's nails yourself, or expressing its anal glands, these chores can be taken care of during the day for a small charge.

Prizes for the raffle which will be run on the day are a large basket of goodies, a beautifully iced, home-made cake and two bottles of wine. The winner of the raffle can choose which prize they prefer to take, the runner-up will choose from the remaining two prizes and the third place ticket will receive the prize which is left.

A parking area on the south side of the Beefacres Reserve provides ample space for cars and the venue and toilets are wheelchair accessible.

If the day is unseasonably hot the club's hot weather policy will come into play and Cavalier Capers will be cancelled if, on Friday 18th November, the forecast temperature for Sunday 20th November is 37 degrees or above.

If the forecast for Sunday 20th November is for particularly wet or dangerously windy weather a decision about cancelling Cavalier Capers will be made before 6pm on Saturday 19th November.

In either case, if the event is cancelled a notice will be placed on the Club's website and on the Club's Facebook Page.

Further information is available from the South Australian Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club web site.
