Record turnout for the Hav Specialty!

Registrations and show entries are now closed. We have been tabulating the numbers and comparing them to the four years prior and we have a record turnout arriving. The Rescue Parade alone has 15 entries! Last year we had 7.

There are 83 champions entered in Best of Breed for the national specialty. Last year there were 52. Whew!

It is going to be so great to see so many of you there!

Great news, Kimberly!! More beautiful Havs for us all to enjoy!

Why do you think the turnout this year is so high?

Congrats on the turnout!!! Is there any way that we can follow the Specialty online? Will the entries (and/or results) be posted on the website now that registrations and show entries are closed? Do you know if Windy City Havanese (@WCHavanese) plan to "tweet" about it in real time? I can't go, but want to be able to root for the home team from afar!

Tracy, entries will not be posted online until after the event, I'm sure. No one is even allowed to have a copy of the catalog (which lists the entries) until the morning of the show.

Who runs the Twitter account for WCHC? Is it Glo? I believe she's offline for the next couple of days, but it might serve to ask them directly. Not sure how much show info you can put out in tweets though. That would be a lot of little updates pumped out. LOL

Jane, not ignoring you. I think there are several factors, but location is a main one. We had a good turnout last time it was in Chicago too.

Thank you for the info. I am not sure who is running the WCHC Twitter account. I'll check, though. And, hey, c'mon you can get alot of info out in 140 characters...you just have to occasionally sacrifice some things...like vowels!

Oh Tracy, I HATE that! LOL (Shortening words)

Jane, I forgot to also add that I'm sure that this being a major anniversary with some new elements has also added to the high numbers. The sign-ups for some of the events has been much, much higher than we anticipated.

That makes me even sadder that I cannot go this year!!

How about considering NYC or NJ for a Specialty???
