WooHoo! Start saving your pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters!

The ASC has selected Reno, Nevada for the 2013 National Cocker Spaniel Show!
The show site will be the Grand Sierra Resort: http://www.grandsierraresort.com/
Check out the resort website!
There is something for the whole family here:
Bowling
Shopping
Beach and water fun
Ultimate Thrill Park featuring rides, go-karts, miniture golf, bumper cars
Cinema
Casinos
Plans are in the works for a Bowling Tournament and a Slot Machine Tournament
RV Park for RVers
And, of course, there will be lots of cocker spaniels there!

This would be a perfect place for a family vacation or a family reunion.
Watch for lots more information to follow in the months ahead.
Hope to see you in Reno in July 2013!

Is agility indoor or outdoor? What are the average temperatures for that month there?

Thanks for posting.

It can be quite hot in July in Reno, nearing 100 degrees, but it is a dry heat (truly, humidity can be 7 percent), and doesn't feel anything like 100 degrees in humidity. Sweat just evaporates right off of you lol!

I for one cannot wait. Even though I'm taking a trip home this summer anyway I can't think of a better reason to go back than the Nationals. Maybe I'll have a blue roan and tan puppy to show then :love .

The ASC Nationals is the 2nd weekend in July.
Set up day is Wednesday, July 10th, show days are Thursday, July 11th thru Sunday, July 14th.

This is going to be so much fun!
The Sierra Grand Resort really looks like a nice place to hold this event. I don't know all of the details for the convention hall space, but I understand that the resort was very accomodating for hosting of this event.

That is what they said when I went to Las Vegas but my cocker and I still sweltered. Thank goodness it is indoors!

I'm going! No doubt about it! I've got my fingers crossed that I'll have one, possibly 2 of my gang competing in obedience and/or rally. No agility though. Sierra's too old (and to be honest, I have a feeling she won't be around by 2013 :( as much as I hate to say it, it's probably true).

Sylvia...it's hot, but not nearly as hot as Vegas.

Oh, Yay!! That will be a fun venue for sure! Anyone want to make a few side bets?? Hee hee!

Julie, between Reno and Vegas, you must be used to that heat... my answer would have been "a bizillion degrees".

Yes it is the old MGM Grand.
It has been totally renovated; did you get a chance to check out the link to the website?

I'm going to try to plan a family reunion at the hotel, maybe the weekend before and then we'll hang around for the ASC Nationals.

Hi Marianne,

We are trying very hard to make plans to go. See old Zim Form Family friends and meet some new folks too! :joy I posted the following info on the Grand Sierra Casino RV Resort on Colleens thread on this subject and the agility doggies too. From what you have stated here, I guess that you are not going to bring your RV???? I sure hope that we can get some RV'ers to join as I want to ask the RV Resort to consider rally rates for us. I am getting SOOOO excited.... :YAY

Here is the info on the Grand Sierra Casino RV Resort:

Rates:

30 amp hook-up, Back In Site: $35.00 per night
30 amp hook-up, Pull Through Site: $40.00 per night
50 amp hook-up, Back In & Pull Through Site: $45.00 per night
Weekly rates: approximately $213.01

The rates are subject to change due to the fact that we are looking at 2013

Other Particulars:

Discounts Available: AAA, AARP

There is a shuttle to drive you to and from the casino.

Reservation Fees: One night deposit, 48 hour free cancellation notice required

I will enquire about a "Rally Rate" if we get enough RV'ers to join in.

Note: I was told that they have powerful water pressure and that a regulator will be needed.

:hi :wow Dawn

Hi Dawn:
Not sure how we are getting to Reno for the 2013 ASC Nationals, I just know I plan on being there!

Hope to see lots of Zim members there!!

Hoping you bring your RV, but will understand you're staying at the hotel. We would probably do that, but we like to sleep in our own bed and save some $$$$ for gas money. Just a choice... :roll Anyway, it is going to be lots and lots of fun! :YAY

Reno is SO much different than Vegas. One, I've never seen it above 106 there (and that's rare), where Vegas can reach 115+ easily. Two, Reno really cools down at night, giving some relief from that heat, where Vegas rarely drops below 80 at night. Three, a quick 30 minute drive up a mountain and it drops 20 degrees and you've got one of the most beautiful places in our country IMO

Now, living in WA, I am DEFINITELY not used to the heat, but by 2013 I might be back near Reno.

Not sure if I can make it yet. Definitely too far to take the dogs. I'm not sure I could stand missing it myself though! We will see what happens, hopefully I will see you all there!
