Humane Society of Harris County Visits the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

Madison Square Garden ~ New York, New York
February 9-12, 2014

How many times have you watched the judging on TV and thought about actually seeing the Show? Here’s your chance! Unpack the winter coat and thermal underwear and join us as we venture to New York City in February to experience this unique world-famous Show. We’ll fly from Atlanta to LaGuardia on Sunday, February 9th, whereupon we check into the deluxe InterContinental Hotel at Times Square.

Breed judging and benching takes place Monday & Tuesday from 8am-6pm at Piers 92/94 (West 55th Street and the West Side Highway). Monday features hound, toy, non-sporting and herding breeds; Tuesday is sporting, working and terrier breeds. The day-time judging determines which dogs will compete that night in the groups at Madison Square Garden. I have exhibited at the Show and will be with you throughout to take you behind the scenes to better understand what’s happening. We’ll also have a speaker Sunday night to further enhance our experience.

Monday afternoon, we’ll visit Ground Zero. Enroute our guide will tell us about Trump City, the West Village, Hell’s Kitchen, the Meatpacking District and more. On Tuesday we’ll visit some of the other
hotels that have fun exhibits and activities related to the Show.

While everyone is responsible for making their own air arrangements, suggested Delta flights from/to Atlanta are mentioned in the itinerary. Gail Shoop (706-663-4707) can also help with your air reservations;
at press-time the fare was $322.

The tour will seem expensive, but we wanted a “comfortable’ experience that includes staying at a nice hotel, breakfast daily, a “Go Anywhere” ticket to the Show and other features.

Thank you and please contact Geoff Robertson at American Travel (706-663-2171) with any questions or for additional information. Many have expressed interest, so please send (or fax 706-663-2445) your
Reservation Form at your earliest convenience.

Please know that $100 per person is included in the tour cost as a contribution the Humane Society, for which we thank you!
