So does anyone know what the itinerary looks like for the 4 days? I am not sure which day I am coming. It's going to be either Saturday or Sunday, it looks like. And hubby is looking like he wants to come as well.

Your best bet is to check the schedule at www.americanmaltese.org. Saturday is Puppy Sweeps and then the luncheon & Rescue Raffle. Sunday is the show for points.

Do you mean this sat/sun or next? The actual showing part is sat and sun (may 8 and 9) so you really don't want to miss those two days. Thur and friday are 'missable' but from a social standpoint, it will be a lot of fun! I THINK they are doing a juniors clinic so maybe your daughter wants to be in on that?

I may just have to drive up on Friday with my son and then come back Saturday or Sunday with hubby.

Deadline

Laura The website www.americanmaltese.org has printable form for registration.. DEADLINE is tomorrow April 28th. Maybe you could fax it? The $10. fee for non members gets you a badge and nice bag filled with goodies. The white excitement party and luncheon for the Saturday sweeps is always nice for visiting with people. Carole Pekron is responsible for this and here is her email. [email protected] You can come and enjoy all the fun without registration. But you miss out on goody bag and the lunches etc. Jeanne

Stacy is going.. I think i'm going, but my registration stuff is in my office and i haven't hobbled over there yet.
I have to figure out what I'm wearing. Atticus is going to be all natural.. though he might take a jacket - in case the air conditioning is up too high (but I really think it'll be me that's too cold).

I am going to the white excitement party, the luncheon & the banquet.

Mom and I sent our registration forms for White Excitement, the banquet, both the luncheon and the boxed lunch. The boxed lunch is especially a good idea because everything happens so fast on Sunday it allows you to eat without missing anything. Or at least this is how it seems to me. I also enjoy the luncheon on Saturday. It is less formal than the banquet, but a nice chance to sit and visit and meet people.

We did not have to pay the $10, because mom and I were both officially accepted as members in December. So, like Stacy and Marina, this will be our first Nationals as AMA members. :) In just 9 short years since we went to our first one. ;)

Hahahaha! This will be my 5th one in 4.5 years and my 4th year of showing. I spectated my first year, then showed Caira (NJ), Chowder (MI), Lois (WA) and now Truffles.

Hopefully Truffles and Emma won't take after their mother and bark the whole time in the ring :thumbsup:

My dogs will all be naked, so you'll have to excuse them at the PJ party :w00t:

The luncheon is missable but is fun. Don't forget to bring extra cash or checks for the raffles. You have seen awesome raffles until you see National Specialty raffles.

Does anyone know if our favorite clothes vendor will be there? The Diamonds? It just wouldn't be the same without them (although it might be a bit cheaper for me, hahaha)

I am very sorry to report we will not be attending our 1st specialty show. We had our reservations since Jan, but our work just won't allow time off. I was so excited & very disappointed we will not be meeting all the wonderful people from this forum or our breeder who was going to attend, but now I think she can't go. Either way, I'll be thinking of everyone & look forward to seeing all the pictures. Have fun!

I signed up for all of the planned things- White Excitement, the lunch on Sat, the lunch on Sunday and the dinner on Sunday night.

Of course we will all be at the SM Pajama/Pizza Party !

YAY!!! I reserved a room at the Hilton!! My son Christopher and I will be there Friday morning and staying until Saturday!!! I'm excited!

The only thing is now I can't print out the darn registration form! My printer is saying its out of ink the indicator is saying its half full. I just bought it 2 weeks ago (Staples brand- go figure!) No way it's out! aarrhhh Tomorrow I have to go out of town to take care of some stupid ticket I got in Walterboro SC. So I will be gone just about all day!

Well, at least we have a room!! Last I called it was all booked up. YAY!

So is the deadline the date your registration is postdated or the date it is received? I mailed my registration yesterday but didn't realize until I was at the post office filling out the form that I could only register one person per form. I registered myself, but not hubby. I assume he will be able to get a ticket to the show portion when we are there without pre-registering. Hope I'm right. I didn't register for the Luncheon because I'll be eating meals with my family. I figure they were kind enought to indulge me in coming to the specialty so I had better spend SOME time with them, LOL!
