Hotel, Schedule & Logo (HCA National 2009)

This is the e-mail that I just sent out to the e-mail groups:

Quote:
To all Havanese owners, exhibitors and handlers:

The plans are coming together for a remarkable anniversary celebration for the Havanese Club of America. 2009 will be extra special for two reasons: This will be our 10th anniversary of our 1st national specialty, and it will also be our 30th year together as a Breed Club. The excitement is brewing and we sincerely hope that you will be there to join us!

Below, please find a brief overview of the schedule to assist in your planning:
Tuesday, August 18th – Travel day
Wednesday, August 19th – Seminars, HCA Meet 'n Greet
Thursday, August 20th – Regional Specialty, Sweepstakes, HRI Reception
Friday, August 21st – National Specialty, Dinner
Saturday, August 22nd – National Specialty, Awards Dinner
Sunday, August 23rd – Travel day
The Westin Lombard has made our block of rooms available by a customized web site. You may book your room for the Havanese Club of America National Specialty by visiting this link: http://www.starwoodmeeting.com/StarG...9207&key=6BFCB
Room rates are:
$129/nt for 1 or 2 occupants
$149 for 3 occupants
$169 for 4 occupants

All dogs must be crated when owner/handler is out of the guest room. The Westin Lombard is a smoke free hotel in all areas, including the lobby, guest rooms, restaurant, and meeting facilities. Any smoking will need to be done outdoors.
If you are interested in the opportunity to have your rendition of a 2009 HCA Anniversary logo used, keep watching your e-mail. Claudia McCracken will be sending out information about the contest in the next couple of days.

We will be sharing details as they become available. If you are interested in working on the Show Committee, please contact me directly with the area of interest noted or join us at the HCA National Specialty e-mail group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/HCA_national_specialty

Excited for the coming year,

Kimberly Gattey-Wood

Kimberly,
Can anyone come up with a entry for the National logo? Will you post that info here when Claudia sends it out?

Yes, Julie. The contest is open to anyone who wants to enter. With your talent, I'd love to see you give it a shot!

I will try to copy any pertinent info over here, but in case I forget, I hope that Kathy and some of the others will consider copying the info too. In fact, feel free to join up for the mailing group at the bottom of my original message. That way you'll be included on info as soon as it comes out. That is open to anyone interested in the details too.

I just sent this e-mail out to the groups:
Quote:
National Specialty Corrections

Please take note that there are a couple of corrections to the e-mail message that was distributed yesterday.

In regard to the schedule, the HRI Reception will be on Thursday evening as usual. It was mistakenly listed under Wednesday.

In addition, I misspoke in saying that this will be our 10th national specialty. In reality, this is the 10th anniversary of our 1st national specialty. The focal celebration will be that this is our 30th year anniversary as a breed club.

Lastly, the logo contest information will go out next week, so please watch for an email from Claudia McCracken on those details. The artwork submissions should reflect our specialty location (Chicago), our dogs, and celebrate our 30th anniversary.

Thank you for the wonderful response on volunteering so far. The 2009 HCA Show Committee is coming together very well. We only have a few committees where we still need chairpersons to fill those areas, including Seminars, Grounds, Advertising and Lunches. If any of these pique your interest, please reply privately.

Working with you,

Kimberly Gattey-Wood
