A “Dog Team” Production!
Several years ago in the heat of the Dog Days of Summer participants determined that everyone who completed the tour would become a member of “The Dog Team“. Since that time numerous individuals have smiled at the summer camp type of foolishness of such a concept only to find themselves searching for a proper nickname as they near the close of the event.
