One National, 2 Regional Specialties!
We look forward to another action-packed week. In addition to the NE Illinois Club holding the regional on Saturday, this year our friends at Rocky Mountain BDF Club are going to hold a regional on Wednesday to offer even more opportunities to show off your Bouvs!
Supporting the Host Hotel
We are happy to advise the Holiday Inn Six Flags will once again be our host hotel. The rate is the same as it was in 2022, so we have escaped inflation on that front. It is important to support our host hotel. Why? You may not be aware, but we are granted a contracted number of complimentary room nights based on the number of room nights that our group uses. Those complimentary nights are used to offset hotel expenses for our judges as well as other requirements (photographer, stewards, show secretary, etc.). Every room night helps us to cover costs. Our objective is to cover all costs and contribute any profit realized to the club operating fund. Aside from member dues, the specialty is our primary income source; some years we do well; and, despite our best effort, sometimes we don’t. You can help maintain an independent specialty with your support of our host hotels and your entries. Thank you so much for your consideration, we appreciate it very much.
