SPRING SHOWS 2007

(updated 04/28/07- not finalized yet, keep checking back often)

NEW LOCATION 

 OLD MILL PARK, 1240 Caroline Street, Fredericksburg, Va. 22401

We have obtained the same grounds at Old Mill Park that we used previously, including the Pavilion, so that we can have breed, obedience, and temperament test at the same location.  We will also have a food wagon, which is under contract by the park authority, to provide lunch on all three days.  We have also contracted for a new Motel - the Best Western Fredericksburg, 2205 William Street, Fredericksburg, VA 22401 where we have at least 50 rooms blocked until MAY 1, 2007.  The Group Rate for double rooms is $74.00.  There is a $15.00 per night charge for dogs in room, an excellent, large exercise area for dogs, GREAT Parking, and Deluxe Continental Breakfast - FREE! 

The motel is recently renovated, is very clean and  attractive.  We strongly recommend that everyone call in for reservations ASAP, for the rooms are to be held only until MAY 1 - Tell the clerk that you will attend the GSD Specialty Show and/or refer to Conformation Number 84065 to get the Group Rate. 

We also recommend that people who already have reservations at the HOJO South Motel cancel those reservations and call the Best Western; because of the Renovation, parking and rooms will be very unhandy at HOJO.

  The Premium List will be out soon - If you are not on our mailing list, contact  Bill Gish at (540)895-5870 or gsd001@earthlink.net  or  Laura Gilbert  lauraeg@aol.com.  Looking forward to seeing Y'ALL!!!
