Pan-American Canine Konvention (PACK) Weekend 2017
Jul 28-31, 2017 in Toronto
The Black Eagle Kennel Klub, in association with its sponsors, is proud to announce the return of our weekend-long fun event designed for the international puppy & handler community.

Following last year's hugely successful event, PACK Weekend again invites pups & handlers from around the world (regardless of experience, gender, or sexual preference) to come to Toronto, Canada for a weekend of fun social events at various venues within Toronto’s Church Street Village.

This year's tentative events include the following:

3:00pm to 8:00pm Black Eagle BBQ ($5.00 clothing check or included with purchase of weekend package). Food items available for purchase.



Our “Best In Show” contest is a purely “for fun” contest where contestants will be allowed to strut their stuff and possibly win some great prizes. This is NOT a “Title” contest. We’re not looking for a titleholder or community representative. We’re looking for the most adorable, talented, or fun puppy at our event.

Each contestant will get 5 minutes on stage to do anything (legal) they want. No mandatory speeches, interviews, gear, or pop questions. Just do your thing and have fun. There will be a panel of judges who will each give you a score out of 25. Once every contestant has had their 5 minutes on stage, they will have 15 minutes to collect as many ballots from Weekend Package holders as they can. Barking, growling, humping, pawing, or whining…whatever you need to do to get those ballots. At the end of the 15 minutes, the number of ballots collected by each contestant will be counted towards their final score.

The puppy with the highest score will be declared the winner, and will receive some cool prizes.

“Best In Show” Winner gets a Blue Leather Ribbon, a leather pup mask, & $100 gift certificate from Northbound Leather, a $100 gift certificate from The Men’s Room, a $50 gift certificate from O’Grady’s, a $30 gift certificate from Baskin Robbins on Church Street, and a leather harness & t-shirt from the Black Eagle Toronto (total value $700)

1st Runner-Up gets a Red Leather Ribbon & $50 gift certificate from Northbound Leather, a $50 gift certificate from The Men’s Room, a $20 gift certificate from Baskin Robbins on Church Street, and leather gauntlets & t-shirt from the Black Eagle Toronto (total value $250)

2nd Runner-Up gets a White Leather Ribbon & $50 gift certificate from Northbound Leather, a $50 gift certificate from The Men’s Room, a $10 gift certificate from Baskin Robbins on Church Street, and a leather cock harness & t-shirt from the Black Eagle Toronto (total value $220)

Every contestant will receive a Black Eagle T-shirt for entering, and additional prizes are possible.

Please note that the number of contestants will be limited to a maximum of 8 and only Weekend Package purchasers will be eligible to enter or vote. In the event we have more applicants than contestant spaces, contestants will be selected by a random drawing.

As with ALL Black Eagle Kennel Klub events, this weekend is open to all pups & handlers regardless of gender, sexuality, or experience level. (The only exception this weekend being the Sin dance party as it is not our event.)

The Black Eagle Kennel Klub goes to great lengths to keep our events as low-cost as possible. This year’s Event Package costs $27 CDN + HST in advance or $40 CDN on registration day. Packages are available now at Northbound Leather and online at www.northbound.com/pack-2017.html
