    Preparation for the specialty begins many months in advance. There is no question, it takes a village to make the specialty weekend happen. Please give us your feedback before August 1, 5 pm. Your comments will be reviewed by the Board and at the Debrief Meeting. Constructive comments always help us improve!  Comment on things like: 1. Setup and welcome, 2. general show, 3. Ringside hospitality, 4. hotel accommodations, 5. hotel events/Fri and Sat

    1. If there was hospitality bags this year I did not receive one. 

    2. No problems with the show. I liked the prizes. 

    3. Good job to the hospitality crew. Lunch was on time.

    4. Does not apply to me.

    5. I was very disappointed with the buffet and have sent an email to the show chair. It was the worse buffet I think I have ever had and I have been to a few not only with dog clubs. I could not make it to the dinner Friday.
