Wondering if anyone will be attending the St. Louis nationals. Even though it says St Louis it will be held at Gray Summit, Mo which is west of St. Louis at the Purina Farm in indoor facilities. The place is prepared to catered to dogs and families. I am interested in going as is on drivinf distance for me. There is only one hotel nearby close to the Purina Farm which accepts pets and is prepared with tubs and grooming tables. I personally interested in going to meet some breeders and of course the Zim forum family.

In the new year Jim will probably create a new sub-forum for the 2012 ASC National Specialty in Grey Summit, MO.

I should be there, barring any unforeseen circumstances. I'm really looking forward to it!

I will most likely be going unless some kind of unforeseen incident prevents me from doing so. :dk

I haven't missed many Nationals over the past six years, so it's a go at this time. I have also looked over the hotel options and am not finding much suitable that is close to the venue. :roll

I'll be requesting that Jim set up a new section for the 2012 Nationals right after the first of the year. :th-up :th-up

Juanita you are right about the hotels around the area. I looked on several websites and there are none suitable on gray summit, but Pacific is very close by. St. Louis is out of the question as is about 28 miles away. I wonder is there are any special type of hotel that is more suitable for dog owners such as facility and in room amenities.

I haven't heard of anything like that, May. :dk

I intend to communicate with Sheila V. and see what she thinks about any suitable hotel in the area. Keep an eye out on this section and there'll be a discussion on it sometime after the 1st of the year.

Isn't there an official hotel for these Nationals? They'd have to take dogs. I have not gotten around to thinking about the logistics as of yet.

There has been no announcement of the official hotel yet on the ASC website. I'm hoping an announcement will be made after the Spaniel show in January. :dk

I found this on the Purina Farms web page:

I guess they'll be announcing a "host hotel" after the Flushing Spaniel show is completed? :dk :dk

So far, it seems like any suitable lodging is going to require a car to get back and forth to the show. Some of us will be getting together and sharing rides with those who are driving from home. :th-up

Hotel information has been posted on the ASC website as follows:

Visitor Information


36th ASC Cocker Spaniel National
Purina Events Center
Gray Summit (St. Louis), MO

July 18-21, 2012

http://www.purina.com/purina-farms/eventcenter.aspx

Holiday Inn at Six Flags, St. Louis – ASC Rate $139.00 per night
No Dogs Allowed
Approx. 10 miles from Purina Farms
4901 Six Flags Rd.
Eureka, MO 63025
(636) 938-6661

Travelodge – ASC Rate $79.00 per night
Dogs Welcome, $35.00 Onetime Fee, no more than 4 dogs to a room

Please be sure to mention ASC or The American Spaniel Club when making your reservations.

The Holiday Inn is directly across the street from Amusement Park, Six Flags St. Louis.

If you have any problems with your reservation at either of the host hotels please contact Julie Virosteck by email at doggonecockers@aol.com or by phone at (760) 490-1041.

Since they don't allow dogs at the Holiday Inn, I'm wondering why this hotel was chosen?? :dk Also, the Travelodge is only one mile from the venue, but is older and I can't ascertain whether there are refrigerators in the rooms. The reviews of the Travelodge aren't very complimentary, either. :roll

I'm contacting Sheila V. to see if she has any opinion/information about either of these choices.

Thanks, Juanita. Can you please update us after you speak with Sheila? Perhaps she is aware of another good alternative as well.

At this point, I think I'd lean toward the Travelodge since it is so close and allows dogs. I really, really hope I can make it!

All:

I will be driving from Indianapolis and staying at the Comfort Inn in Pacific, MO. I was able to get my company's corporate rate, so that was a plus!

I will arrive mid-to-late afternoon on Thursday, 7/19 and leave on Sunday, 7/22.

Since I will have my car, I'm happy to cram as many in for shuttling back and forth as possible.

Sally

The Comfort Inn is about 5 miles from Purina Farms, from what I can gather, but the charge is $10 per pet per night, limit 2 dogs.

We will have a few people with cars to help shuttle guests back and forth from the venue.

Just made my reservation at the Comfort Inn in Pacific, also. :th-up

I'll be arriving on Tues., the 17th and leaving Sunday, the 22nd.

More details to follow. :roll

I am still going to keep the ASC contact list for those from the forums who are attending. The initial thing I need is an email from you stating your intention to attend. Email me at: duell280zx@att.net

I'll be getting additional info from you as we approach the date of the Nationals. :joy

Sylvia:

That hotel is around a hundred dollars /night. That's right in between the rate of the host ones plus the dog charge.

Check out their web page:
