2024 AKC Meet the Breeds NYC
January 27 @ 10:00 am - January 28 @ 5:00 pm
Happy holidays to you and your Clumbers!
I am pleased to share that the American Kennel Club recently announced that its Meet the Breeds event will be back in New York City at the Javits Center in January 2024.
On behalf of the Clumber Spaniel Club of America (CSCA), I am writing to invite you to join us with your Clumber at the Clumber Spaniel Booth at the 2024 AKC Meet the Breeds event in NY City on Saturday, January 27 and/or Sunday, January 28, 2024 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Meet the Breeds is an incredible experience where @30,000 people stream through to meet a wonderful group of pure bred dogs and their owners. Clumbers are always very popular, attracting quite a crowd desiring to pat a Clumber head!
I am working on organizing the Clumber Spaniel booth with the assistance of Noelani Randazzo who will be scheduling all the amazing volunteers for the CSCA. Happy to have others join as organizers as well! As you may remember if you joined us before, the schedule is in three shifts from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.; 11:30 to 3 p.m. and 1:30 to 5 p.m. with multiple dogs present at all times. In the past, we have been very lucky and have sometimes had as many as five or six Clumbers at a time in the booth.
The booth will be 10’ by 20” and will have crates for dogs needing to take time-outs and naps during their shifts. AKC provides free volunteer passes in advance which we will email to our volunteers. The CSCA may be able to obtain a limited number of parking passes for a garage near the Javits Center for a small sum this year.
Thank you very much to those who participated in the past. I hope you can do so again. If you haven’t participated before, I hope that you will join us in January 2024. Please let me know if you are able to join us by replying to this email. If you know which day(s) and shift(s) you would prefer, please let us know that as well. I’ll be checking in early January to refine the schedule.
If you have any Clumber friends who would like to join us, please ask them. If you are on Facebook or Instagram, please share the news. If you are any CSCA Board calls, please share the news there as well. We can always use more volunteers and dogs.
Again, happy holidays! I hope to see you at the Javits Center with your Clumber on January 27 th and/or 28th.
