Are you staying at the host hotel for the 2022 National, but couldn't get a room for the nights of the 14th & 15th (departing on the 16th)? I have a couple of SINGLE-KING rooms that have opened for those nights only. If you would like to be placed in line for one, please fill out our waiting list form and let me know.

RV SPACE RESERVATIONS. The hotel has virtually unlimited dry camping available for $25 a night. In addition, the hotel also has some RV spaces with hookups. There are 14 spaces with full hookups that are priced $40 a night (the club will be keeping one of the full hookup spaces open for dumping/water availability to make it easier for everyone). There are an additional eight spaces with electrical only that are also $40 a night. We expect that RV spaces with hookups will also sell out, so we suggest that you book this as soon as it opens on Wednesday by emailing your RV applicationhttps://www.ackcsc.org/2022national/images/PDFs/Application.pdf - E-mail forms should be sent to: [email protected]
and will be accepted on Wednesday May 12th at 11:00 EDT, 10:00 CDT, 9:00 MDT, 8:00 PDT/AZ. RVs will be assigned by the hotel on a first come first serve basis. You can also mail your reservation in, but full hookups may be sold out by the time it arrives. Additional information regarding RVs and RV Rentals may be found on our website here: https://www.ackcsc.org/2022national/index.php/venue/rv-parking

HOTEL RESERVATIONS. The ACKCSC National & Independent Specialties will be held at Roberts Centre in Wilmington, Ohio April 11-15, 2022. The host hotel is the Holiday Inn Wilmington at Roberts Centre (there is also a Holiday Inn Express, which is one of our secondary hotels but not the host hotel). In addition to our normal activities of Conformation, Rally, Obedience, Junior Showmanship, Education, Parades and social events/fundraisers, this year we will be adding Agility, FastCat and Trick Dog on site. It looks like it will be our biggest show ever!

This is a beautiful facility for a dog shows with over 50,000 square feet of Indoor space. There is one downside: the hotel is smaller than we are used to. To try to be fair to all members and attendees, we will be opening the hotel room registration process on Wednesday May 12th at 11:00 EDT, (10:00 CDT, 9:00 MDT, 8:00 PDT/AZ) and have set down some rules this year for hotel reservations.

There is a limit of one room per person/phone call. The only way to book in our block is to call the hotel directly at 937-283-3200 and press option 3. If you book through any other method your reservation in our block is subject to cancellation.

There have been a few rooms that people booked early through the 800 number and those rooms have or will be cancelled. If you try to book any other way (through the 800 number, through the website/3rd party website) and you do somehow manage to get a room in our block, it will be cancelled so that people who are following the set rules have an equal chance at rooms.

If you try to call tomorrow and get a busy signal, please keep trying. There will be multiple people taking phone calls, and no phone calls will be taken for the event prior to 11am CDT.

We would love it if everyone could stay at The Host Hotel, but that just isn't a possibility. We encourage you to share a room where possible. We are asking you to please be considerate and put your handlers up at other local hotels so that more members may stay at the host hotel where evening events will be held. We are working off-site hotels with room blocks for those of you who are not able to get in the Host Hotel. There will be a third hotel opening this summer and there will be rooms available at that hotel as well. We will have our room blocks set by the end of the month at latest and will send information out as it becomes available.

Again, we wish we could all be together at one hotel, but it is just not possible for this show. These rooms will sell out fast and we ask for your understanding and cooperation in staying at another hotel if you are not able to get a room at the host hotel.

Hi everyone,
Ive had several people asking about hotel rooms. We don't have a date from the hotel yet as to when they will open reservations for our group. We have been told it will not be over the weekend, and we will be able to give you a day or 2 notice as a heads up in order to make it as fair as possible. We are hoping for next week. Hotel reservations will need to be made this time by calling the hotel directly. Rooms will be limited to one room per person. We request you put handlers up at one of the several nearby hotels. Several of these are only an easy 12 minute drive on rural roads.

Hey there I just received in email a hotel cancelation notice from the specialty hotel.....
The perfect brand new feel good book for all lovers of Cavaliers! BURBERRY has been immortalised in his Mummy's true story about their slightly eccentric English family's serendipitous journey towards a new life in Corfu and the Ionian Sea aboard their ocean going catamaran. Many of Burberry's adventures are recounted with great love and affection.The Absolutely Fabulous JOANNA LUMLEY OBE FRGS says in her endorsement on the cover: 'CHARMING AND AMUSING IN EQUAL MEASURE, THIS IS A BOOK TO CHEER THE SADDEST HEART.' The book benefits the #DURRELL WILDLIFE CONSERVATION TRUST, with photos from the Durrell family album of Gerry as aboy in Corfu, and in later life as a world famous author and conservationist. Signed & personalised 1st editions (wonderfully exclusive Christmas gifts!) ONLY AVAILABLE from the author: www.janitullychaplin.com/store
Woo Hoo --- getting my agility entries ready. !!! Anyone else coming from the pacific northwest????

Thank you so much, I appreciate your time!
