future champs sites
« on: March 17, 2019, 03:39:35 PM »
I know, I know - WAY too early to start this discussion, but I was browsing around for something else and came across this.  For maybe another Champs site to consider -

Toyota Coliseum at the New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse, NY. 
          *hosts more than 2 dozen regional horse shows a year
          *seating for 3600
          *in house announcer booth
          *fairground restaurant provides concession services
          *main ring  210' x104'
          *warm up ring  180' x 98'
          *electric 110/208 non commercial


I don't know what specification Nadac needs for Champs sites, but this sounded hopeful?
Just thought I'd throw this out there...

I still recommend Tulsa fairgrounds where AKC Nats is held this year.  There are plenty of great accomodations there!

I think you should check out Garrett Coliseum in Montgomery, Alabama.  They just completed the Southeast Livestock Exposition Rodeo this past weekend.  They host all kinds of events from basketball games to Walking Horse Shows.  Lots of stalls and lots of seating for people.  Just a thought.

Check out this new place.  Drove by there on Friday and sign says they are now open.  At the intersection of 2 major Interstates, 77 & 81.

I was hoping someone would post that.  Now, if they would update their website to reflect that they ARE open, and answer some questions for us....

Tulsa was pretty slippery and dusty in 2016 -- they brought the official "dirt guy" in this year and it was much improved. While not dusty at all this year, unfortunately the dirt did get worked up pretty bad in the heavy traffic areas (turns and weaves). The Perry, GA site was the best I've ever seen.

AKC NAC brings in 1300+ dogs, which probably makes a difference in being able to afford a facility like the Expo Center.

But if we're voting, I vote for Perry!
