There is another facebook page, 'Barker Field Dog Park', maintained by Jacob's person, a regular in the evenings at BF.
We currently have a good reputation at Yelp, sometimes get snide reviews at Craigslist.
- At Google+ we're FOBF Friends of Barker Field.
This is a new group, visitors and members are welcome.
- Our Yahoo group is Barker Field Regulars.
It can be considered as an archive, plus it has the attention of Bill Zardus, editor of the
Yahoo group Dog Park National News, so the Files are chock full of stuff about dogs' and peoples' behavior at
dog parks, rules, and management issues for dog parks and runs.
There are about 275 regulars subscribing to this group, which was formed about the same time as Barker Field.
- Sally Brant, our artist-in-residence, has graciously provided FOBF rights to
decorate apparel and other FOBF-branded items with a series of drawings she's done
for the occasion. Sally was a founding member of R-DOG, was there when BF opened and whenever
she can make it with her herd of herding dogs. Our pages will be up soon at zazzle.com,
meanwhile click Gallery
to see a gallery of the images as they're prepped for zazzle... This project is running a little behind...
