Is It Really Coming Up That Soon?

Yes, it is. We keep track with the handy Countdown timer on almost every page on the Website. Means it’s time to get serious about the upcoming Specialty. If you’re planning on coming but still haven’t done some things, now is the time to do so. There are good reasons why it’s time to get busy now.

Have You Made Your Reservations Yet?

You should & soon. The Tuscon area will be filled with dog show enthusiasts coming into town for the week long almost daily dog shows scheduled. The All Breed shows start on Friday Nov. 8 and continue through Sunday Nov. 18th. Pet friendly lodging will be booking quickly. Good news? The Host Hotel has a block of rooms set aside for Basenji exhitibors exclusively so if you haven’t yet, it’s time to book a room.

RV Campers – Wish we had more info about making reservations on the Pima County Fairgrounds but we’re not in charge of that. When we get information from the folks planning the show cluster, will get the information to you.

There is an alternative RV park, just a few miles down the road. They have asked folks to make reservations for November after Labor day as they don’t take short term reservations until then. They did say they’re sure there will be plenty of spots available.

Trophy Sponsors – We Need You

We appreciate all the support so many have shown in sponsoring trophies. And we honor those who sponsor by having their names published in the Specialty Premium List & Show Catalog. Publication deadlines for both of these are coming sooner than you’d think so if you haven’t sponsored a trophy yet – or wish to sponsor another – please consider sponsoring a trophy soon.
