As contact person for your local BT club I am writing to ask your help. I have sent emails to the BTCA membership and posted on Facebook about the room situation but still haven't reached everyone. If you could forward this information to your membership I would really appreciate it. Thanks for any help you can give!
I would like to take this opportunity to clarify the hotel room situation for Silverwood 2013. The Roberts Centre was chosen for the fantastic show venue that Eukanuba Hall offers - over 18,000 sq. ft. of show/grooming space, state of the art flooring (no more plastic!), dressing rooms, dog bathing areas, and all agility/obedience equipment on hand. The attached Holiday Inn only has 110 rooms but we contacted 2 other area hotels to work with us. The hotel was not to release rooms until November 5 but, unknown to us, accepted some reservations the week following Silverwood 2012. Once we realized that this was happening, we felt we had to open reservations to the membership which we did by email and Facebook postings. The Hotel was booked within 24 hours.
The 2 hotels that we are working with are the Hampton Inn and the Holiday Inn Express, both adjacent to each other, and only 7 minutes from the show site. We have arranged for a shuttle service and will have a welcome table at each facility to answer questions, give directions, etc. The number for the Hampton is 937-382-4400; the Holiday Inn Express is 937-382-5858. Please ask for the Bull Terrier National Block and book as soon as possible. Neither hotel will hold the block indefinitely.
Our club is looking forward to hosting all of you and think we have some great surprises planned! Our website will be ready in a few more days.

Please contact me if you have any questions.
