The Roanoke-based dock diving group, Anubis Air Dogs, will host another competition this weekend at White Rock Winery in Goodview, Virginia. This time, however, it will be part of a much larger event to raise money for Susan G. Komen to support breast cancer research.
New to dock diving? Here’s a video showing what it’s all about.
Tim Boyd heads Anubis Air Dogs and says the fundraiser will also include wine tasting from four local wineries. “In addition, there will be music, food, artisan vendors, and did I say wine and beer.” Come support the vendors and raffles will also raise money for the charity.
Fetch N Fly, a Blacksburg club, will also be demonstrating the sport of disc dog.
“K9 in the Vines Jump for a Cure” will be held from 11:30 to 5:30 Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $20 for the two day event for tasters. Nontaster tickets are $10 and children under the age of 16 get in free. There are also fees to participate in dock diving. If you pre-register for dock jumping, your jumps fees include wine tasting. Unlike most competitions, there will be finals both days at this event.
