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:

Thank you, Juanita!

The link below is to St. Louis area hotels in the Six Flags area (this includes Purina Farms) of St. Louis. At the bottom, you'll find most of these hotels are along I-44 which should provide easy, quick commutes to and from the Purina Farms.

There is also on on-line version of a visitor's guide to St. Louis available at:

http://madden.imirus.com/Mpowered/book/vstg12/i2/p1

I'm so excited to have the ASC Nationals in St. Louis this year; I've always wanted to attend but it has never worked out. Looking forward to meeting lots of the Zim Forum members.

Take Care and see y'all in July.

Thanks, Terry, for the information about St. Louis. :Clap It's just too bad that the venue for the show and the hotels are out from the city center. :dk

Could you please email me with your intention to attend the Nationals in July so that I can put you on my contact list? I will be contacting all on this list later on for more information which will be distributed prior to the dates of the show. :th-up

Hi,
After getting information from other people on agility/conformation/obedience yahoo groups, the Comfort Inn is where we are staying. We are arriving on Wednesday (though I may change the arrival to Tuesday, haven't decided.)

FYI -- the Travel Lodge (formerly the Diamond Lodge) did receive acceptable reviews as a clean but basic motel. Lots of grass for the dogs and it has a dog bathing room. It is the closest to Purina, but there are no restaurants nearby so you always have to drive for food.

I was wondering how many forum members are attending, maybe we can plan a Zim forum night celebration.

Yeah, Susan! Looking forward to meeting you!

I am getting so excited already. I see the show premium is listed on the ASC site, so it is time to get entries in :YAY

Hi All,

If you are competing in obedience and rally there are 2 days of all-breed competition (Thursday and Friday) and one-day of Cocker-only obedience/rally (Sat). The premium was just posted on Wednesday but the two days of all breed obedience/rally are expected to fill quickly. (FYI-- The two days of all breed agility closed on the first day and there is a long waiting list. Agility entries are done through a different show secretary and they were open for cockers for two weeks before other breeds could enter.)

I'm not concerned about the Cocker-only day filling this fast -- we don't have that many cockers doing obedience. Solo's entry for the Cocker-Only Obedience will go in next week, once I know whether to enter him in Open A or Open B. But if I wanted to show him during the all-breed days, I would have sent the entry in today. Of course Rosey, the Divine Goddess of the Cosmos, doesn't have to compete in obedience anymore after going High in Trial at last year's cocker national. She will sit on the sideline making faces at Solo :goof .

Floy Trent Dog Shows is the show secretary. The premium list is posted on that site, as well as at the American Spaniel Club. The premium also includes information about all the special seminars and events.

See you in St. Louis,

Colleen

Thanks for the 'heads up' Colleen.
I think I am only going to enter the Cocker only day. We have not been training all that much, so it is really just for fun any way.

Susan:

I don't have you on my contact list. :dk

Would you please send me an email at duell280zx@att.net to let me know of your intention to attend the Nationals? :th-up

I'll be sending out the first email to all those on the contact list in a couple of weeks to collect specific information, but right now all I need is your email address. :love

In an effort to actually have a life outside of rescue, I'm going to be attending this year so I can meet up with some of my Texas friends and participate in the Parade of Rescues. We'll be there on Friday and Saturday.

I just sent you an email with my email address, Juanita.

I bought my plane ticket yesterday! :YAY I'm still not sure which hotel we are staying at. I have reservations at the Comfort Inn and the Travelodge. I like that the Travelodge is closer but not so nice. However it is one of the host hotels so staying there helps to support the event. However, it seems as if most people from the forum are staying at the Comfort Inn and that would be nice too. :dk Decisions, decisions...

If everything goes well and I can get the time off I will be driving so I might be there thursday at noon. For those who know the schedule when is the cockers only exhibit? It says thursday but I don't know if is am or pm. This will change my travel schedule as I want to see this event. By the way how many Zims forum member are going? I will also be staying at the comfort inn.

It starts at 8 a.m. so if you arrive in the afternoon it may be too late. The trial secretary said that on Sunday when all breeds run it will most likely end around 5 p.m. So, on Cocker only day I assume we'll end much earlier.

So happy that this thread has be reactivated as we get closer to the date of the Nationals. :Clap

Thanks, Steph, for sending along your email so that I can put you on the contact list. :th-up

I'll be sending out the initial request for all on the list for your final contact info, travel plans and accommodations. The final contact list will be going out about a week before the event begins.

Thanks to all for your kind co-operation. :nw

Sylvia, I understand your desire to support the host hotel, but most of us will be staying at the Comfort Inn.
