I am usually out of the loop and the last to know things, but I haven't seen anything on the forum about this. I just found out that the 2014 National Specialty is going to be in Portland, OR. The information said this is the first time it will be held in the Pacific NW. I am so excited. I have been hoping it would come to our area. July 22-26, 2014. Holiday Inn on Columbia Blvd, which is fairly close to the airport. Wheeee!
