What is Collie Chaos? Exactly what it says on the tin ! Collies and Chaos but all jolly good fun. Every penny raised on the day goes to Collie Rescue (Rough & Smooth) UK. We ask for donations of home made cakes, to sell on the day, Tombola or Raffle prizes and any home made Collie items that several people produce to sell on the day, also collie ornaments and pictures. Bring them all with you on the day.
There is an option of either a 3 or 8 mile sponsored walk round the reservoir for those fit and able. There are several shorts walk where people can wander off under their own steam if they wish to do so. The field itself is secure and wheelchair friendly. People can either bring their own picnic or buy food, drinks or ice cream at the on site café or restaurant. (Bring fold up chairs and garden umbrella's (to give some shade) if you have them).
It does not matter what walk of life your Collie comes from and many dogs who attend are rescue dogs re-homed via Collie Rescue. The only strict stipulation is that everyone who attends cleans up immediately after their own dogs and that each owner is responsible for the actions / behaviour of their own dog whilst in Carsington grounds.
We provide inflatable paddling pools for the dogs to play in and numerous footballs ! Sociable dogs are allowed off lead on the field, but should be on leads when walking round the Carsington site, (regardless of what Jo Public do with their own dogs). Please be aware that the general public join us on the field to support our efforts. We are not allowed retail stalls unless every penny is donated to Collie Rescue.
We normally hold a strictly fun dog show where anything goes !
Just to make people aware, I do not work for Collie Rescue and the whole day is organised and run by volunteers and as Collie Chaos has become so busy and popular we always need eager volunteers to help set up the night before and on the morning of the event, to man and run stalls throughout the day and also to dismantle and pack everything away at the end of the day.
During the day we also collect any dog related items (food, blankets, towels, toys etc.) which can be left at the entrance for Crowfoot Kennels & Dog Rescue. Crowfoot collect everything later in the day.
Some members of the Collie Rescue committee will be joining us, as they can take this opportunity to see how well some of the dogs they have been involved in rescuing are doing and they also help to man some of the stalls.
The whole day is designed to be jolly good fun with very few rules and if you have never been before then come along and witness the amazing sight of over 200 Rough and Smooth Collies all playing and running happily. It is a sight you will never forget ! (You can get an idea of what Collie Chaos is all about by looking at the photos of previous years events by clicking HERE)
I believe car parking for the day is around £4 and if anyone needs help unloading their car there is always someone willing to help.
