On behalf of the Heart of Illinois Dog Show Cluster, welcome to Bloomington-Normal. We hope you have a great weekend, in and out of the ring. We are proud of our Cluster and hope to improve it every year, so we welcome your suggestions and comments.
We also need your help. As you know, more and more hotels and motels are refusing to accept dogs because of irresponsible behavior by some dog owners in the past. Currently, there are four hotels printed in our premium list which will accept dogs, and we certainly don't want to see any of these hotels change their policy. To help ensure that area lodgings will continue to open their doors to dogs, please observe the following:
We have asked the motels to notify the Cluster Committee if problems arise, property is destroyed, or if the above guidelines are not followed. The host club and the AKC will be notified. Violators will be subject to Bench Show hearings and will not be invited to return to our shows.
Thank you for participating in our Cluster weekend. Information about the Bloomington-Normal area is available at the Education and Information table at the Interstate Center and at your motel.
