Our host hotel is the Olympia Resort & Convention Center in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin.

This site is a well-known venue for National Specialties in the Midwest and is situated only 30 minutes outside of Milwaukee, WI and General Mitchell International Airport. It is located approximately 30 minutes from 3-All Breed Dog Shows immediately following our National Specialty. The huge ballroom will hold our rings and the grooming rooms are adjacent to them. A Deli-lunch vendor will be set up directly outside our rings for food and beverages and the Clubs Hospitality Room will be available for snacks and visiting. The dog-friendly rooms are indoor accessible and close to the rings. We are working with a rental equipment company for renting additional crates, dryer, grooming tables etc. More information will be in the premium.

This resort offers a golf course, spa, pool and several other restaurants for you to enjoy during your stay. All National Specialty events will be held at the host hotel, including Agility, Rally, Obedience, Conformation, Banquets, and Welsh Springer Spaniel Special Attractions including the Iron Welsh Challenge. The Hunt and Tracking tests will be held on nearby grounds. Following the National, there are 3 WSSCA Supported Entries at local all-breed shows that are only a 30 minute drive from the host hotel.

A block of rooms has been reserved at $109.00 per night. The Olympia Resort & Convention Center is also the recommended hotel for the all-breed shows, so you won't have to move to another hotel. Reserve your rooms by phone by calling: 1-800-558-9573 and be sure to mention the WSSCA event.

WSSCA has a contracted minimum hotel room requirement. When/if that requirement is met, $15 per room per night will be rebated to the person whose name is on the invoice. Please forward a copy of the room invoice to Shelley Traylor, Treasurer Heartland Welsh Springer Spaniel Club, for rebate.

Our venue and the Performance Events are being shared with the
