The 10th annual "Running of the Wieners" will be held on the ballfield on Sunday, September 19 at 12:30. The dachshunds will run in the following categories: Little Smokies (Under age 1), Frankfurters (1-5 years) and Senior Sausages (Over the age of 5). Dave Hulinsky of Complete Music will once again be calling the races. Costume judging will be held for "Best Dressed Wienie" and "Cutest Couple" (two dachshunds or one with his human). The crowd favorite, the Wiener Dog Meal for Humans, hot dogs, pop and chips will be served at the grill. We are looking forward to a big crowd for this award winning event. Registrations are available at many Nebraska vet clinics, the Platt Duetsche, and HERE.

Volunteers are always needed and if you would like to participate, call Sheryl or Jo at 382-0586. This is always a popular event, so come on down…..we will be looking for you and your favorite dachshund. If you are looking for that special long face to add to your family, we will have foster wienies that will be available for adoption!
