Specialty Site Information
Our site for the 2008 Specialty is the beautiful Wine Country of upstate
New York. The Host Hotel will be the site of our meetings and the Awards
Banquet. The show site itself overlooks Seneca Lake at Sampson State Park.
Seneca Lake is one of the Finger Lakes and September in upstate New York means
autumnal leaves, wine tours, shopping, hiking and important historical
locations. All show events (Conformation, Junior Showmanship, Obedience, Rally
and Agility) are offered at the same location. In addition, camping is
available at Sampson State Park.
Hospitality, meetings and the banquet will be located at the Host Hotel
(Holiday Inn) in Waterloo, about 10 minutes from the show site.
For the Specialty proper, we will be in the Specialty Field of the show
site. We will have plenty of room for grooming, crating, ringside hospitality
and trophies. There will be ample ringside tenting to provide protection from
sun or rain - it is upstate New York in September after all!
Please plan ahead! Due to New York State regulations, RABIES
CERTIFICATES ARE REQUIRED FOR ANY DOGS BEING BROUGHT ON TO THE SHOW
GROUNDS. The State Park Service will not accept Rabies titer reports.
Rabies Certificates will be checked as you enter the park.

The Wine Country Cluster Camping Coordinator and
reservation opening date is still pending.
PLEASE NOTE: The CDCA
Room Policy will be in effect and strictly enforced. We recommend that

For intrepid road warriors, Romulus is pretty much "slap dang" in the middle
of New York State, that is approximately 470 miles from Cincinnati OH; 2300
miles from San Diego, CA; 790 miles from Rochester, MN; 250 miles from
Leesburg, VA; 3500 miles from London, England (U.K.); and a mere 10,200 miles
from Melbourne, Australia.
September in upstate New York can be unpredictable to say the least. In
addition to planning for hot, sunny conditions, we recommend that you come
equally prepared for everything from wind to rain to cold, especially at night.
As the show site is on the lake, temperatures are generally 10 degrees cooler
than they will be in Waterloo at the host hotel. Layers are especially
recommended for mornings, as are waterproof shoes for heavy morning dew.
