Custom T-Shirt


Each year we offer a custom greyhound event shirt which may be purchased ahead of the event in your size and style.  You may have your shirt shipped to you or you may pick it up at the event.   


The design to the left was the design on our custom shirt in 2017.


​This year's shirt should be available to order about August 1st or so.  It will be custom designed by a top greyhound artist.

Registration     

​​Dates for 2020 are Oct. 7-11.    Registration will likely open May 1st. 


 


Registration allows the attendee to hear top name speakers on various topics and numerous seminars held throughout the weekend.  We also assemble vendors in one location for your convenience in shopping for all sorts of greyhound goods.    We sponsor numerous special activities throughout the weekend, including doggie babysitting, a Beer and Biscuit Mixer, a greyhound parade on the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk on Sunday, and even an email address where questions may be sent and promptly answered on a wide variety of topics.  We provide all this and more for one modest registration fee.  The money which we earn from this event -- after we pay our expenses -- is donated to greyhound adoption groups through the region and beyond.


Registration helps pay the costs of staging a large, complex event, paying for facility rentals, cleaning fees, facility rental, speakers' expenses, and liability insurance, just to name a few of the costs.  If you think that these events just happen or that they don't have significant costs, you would be incorrect.  


All funds left over after expenses go to 501(c)3 greyhound adoption groups or organizations.   The company behind the management of this event is The Grapehound Wine Tour, Inc., a Delaware registered, IRS approved 501(c)(3) corporation established for the benefit of greyhounds and other sighthounds.  We have donated tens of thousands of dollars over the years to dozens of greyhound adoption groups across America.


If you wish to see this event continue, we encourage you to support the event by registering, even if you cannot attend.  The cost is modest but the benefit to greyhounds is great.   Registration is not tax deductible if you attend.  However if you could not attend for some reason, the donation should be eligible as a tax deduction.  Check with your tax advisor to be sure.


Individuals not registered can't attend our speakers or seminars scheduled throughout our weekend or participate in special events throughout the weekend, such as our Welcome event on Wednesday evening or our Beer and Biscuit mixer on Thursday evening.
