Frankenmuth, Michigan! We are co-hosting the 2018 National Specialty! Nigel Clark, Co-Chair
The Portuguese Water Dog Club of Greater Chicagoland is joining the Great Lakes Portuguese Water Dog Club to co-host the 2018 Portuguese Water Dog National Specialty. We will hold our event at the Bavarian Inn in Frankenmuth, MI, August 24 – August 31, 2018. Our club is focusing on Hospitality while Great Lakes is focusing on Performance.Our host hotel information can be found here. You may make your reservation on January 15 or after. I would encourage you to make it very early on January 15, as our host hotel almost always books up immediately. There is a limit of one room per household and you must declare the number of dogs and guests that will be in your room. You may snail mail, fax, or email your room reservation form. They will not accept phone call reservations. Click on the file link below and download the reservation form to fill in. It’s going to be a great time for all. The theme this year is Adventures in Frankenmuth and our logo is shown here. Won’t it be fun to have that logo on a hooded sweatshirt or a duffel bag or a hat? Even if you can’t go to the National, you can still order merchandise, and have it shipped to you. We have some great adventures planned indeed! There will be more information coming soon. When you make your reservation be sure to include Sunday night August 24, when we will have an artist-led craft project! We have started a Facebook group called 2018 PWDCA National Specialty. Be sure to join this group for more announcements. Check back here and on our Facebook page for more updates as they become available. And mark your calendars for that last week in August! It is sure to be a memorable time of fun with dogs and friends old and new!
