There will be grooming space reserved for the Puli Club of America.  This show site is indoors, but is not air conditioned.  Please keep track of weather reports and plan accordingly.  There are ample electric outlets in the grooming area.  There is no charge for reserved grooming.

Mark your calendars!

The Holiday Inn Manitowoc is a beautiful facility located on the shore of Lake Michigan.  This is a full service hotel, with lots of grass for the dogs.  The Holiday Inn is approximately a 3 minute drive or 1.4 miles to the show site.  PCA has negotiated a special room rate of $88/night.  Be sure to mention you are with Puli Club of America in order to receive this rate.

The hotel includes both the Normandy Dining Room restaurant and Julian's Lounge (complimentary hors d' oeuvres on weekdays). 

Make reservations early!  We do have a block of rooms reserved, but keep in mind this is also an all breed show so the hotels will be busy.
