This will zoom in on the intersection where the park is. There are entrances to the parking lot on both sides of Heron Road (we'll have some signs posted to guide you to the right section).

Spring Ferret Frolic 2005
Post Frolic Report

Despite our setup being delayed by the Ottawa Marathon and the threatening weather, our Spring 2005 Ferret Frolic was our most successful ever. There were 99 registered ferrets and we had lots of participation in all the games. The total amount raised at this event was $2,144. If we subtract our expenses for food, supplies, hammock material, van rental and bumper stickers ($400), our total profit from this event was $1,744. This total, plus funds from recent garage sales, cage sales and adoptions, allowed us to pay off our vet bills for the first time in 3 years.

Following are the results of the various events:

Lightest Female Dilly 0.59kg
Heaviest Female Sugar Pie 1.44kg
Lightest Male Nahum 0.75kg
Heaviest Male Frank 1.77kg

Ferrets in Attendance Yannick 102 (actual total was 99)
Jelly Beans Ashley 750 (actual total was 784)
Vet Bill Nick $4200 (actual total was $4125)

Table Clearing 1st Bear, 2nd Chaos, 3rd Seven
Tube Races 1st Brogan, 2nd Mika, 3rd Naum
Sock Stuffing 1st Chaos, 2nd Mojo, 3rd Oscar
Human Rodeo 1st Trevor, 2nd Ally, 3rd Brogan
Best Costume: Balerina Ferret

Auction #1- Cage Trevour $210
Auction #2 - MP-3 Player Lynn $40
Auction #3 - Speakers Chantal $30
Auction #4 - Speakers Chantal $25
Auction #5 - Cage Toby $200
Auction #6 - Cage Yannick $200

As seen in the results, the Silent Auction cages did very well. Many factors helped boost their value: Advance Promotion, Extra goodies such as (hammocks, cleaning kits, bowls, etc) and having them setup on-site. These also resulted in an additional $200 cage sale to one of the losing bidders (the cage was donated by SuperPet and we did not have time to set it up).

For those who missed the event, event photos have been posted at ferretrescue.ca/photo-e.php?catid=5
