I am going to be in Chicago for a business meeting from 9/22/06 to 9/23/06, and I can stay an extra day to meet with local RSC members and evaluate their dogs for breeding.

I need to know:

1) Is there an interest in this?

2) Who would be there?

3) Who can put me up for one night (or would you rather cover my hotel bill?)

4) Where and when can we meet.

I need to hear from you ASAP because I need to book the plane ticket.

Anna

Dear Anna,

  Although Nika has already been evaluated, if there will be some males there, I would come just to check out the available male gene pool for her future breeding.  I am north of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, so I could contribute towards a room for you.

Thanks Anna,

Elaine and Nikalena

p.s. Is this in addition to or would this be our Russian Spaniel meeting?

Hi Anna!

With my past luck, I hate to tell you that I will definitely be able to make it on September 24th.  I was planning to make the May 14th trip and then we had a death in the family.  I would definitely like to try and make it.  The 24th will probably work, but the 23rd won't.

Hi Anna, I am planning to stay with my brother and his family on 9/23-9/24. They live in Waukesha, WI - located on the west side of Milwaukee. I am looking forward to having Ricci evaluated and meeting other RSC members. I am not familiar with Chicago, but I am willing to meet you when and where ever it is convenient. Thanks, Becky & Ricci

Anna!

You can stay with us in Naperville . My husbund will be out of town.We will be glad to meet you finally in person. The only problem is we live in townhouse and do not have a back yard (it means we can't use our house for the meeting).

E-mail me or call .

Natalia and Nuyta.

Ok Chicago! I booked my flight. I will be at a business meeting on saturday morning and should be completely free by lunch time. I'm spending friday night at the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile (540 North Michigan Avenue, Chicago, Illinois 60611).

I am assuming we can meet around 2-3 pm somewhere. Suggestions on a location?

Can someone pick me up from the hotel and bring me to wherever we meet?

I also need a place to crash for the night (literally just crash, as I need to visit someone in Millawakee on saturday night). Natalia, does your offer still stand?

We could also meet on Sunday morning, as my flight leaves at 2pm.

We are out of time, lets plan specifics!!!!

Anna

P.S. I got an email from Fred & Annette Tyszka, owners of Bailystok:

"The RSC Forum said that I am not entered yet, so I cannot get on line to say that we would be coming to Chicago in September to get Baily approved for breeding, feel free to add us on the forum as we are getting on 'short time' for the meeting. I will try later to see if I have access. Do we need the breeds papers to show Baily's lineage for this meeting? Thanks - Fred."

To answer Fred's question about pedigrees. I believe we have most of them on file, but if you can take a few minutes and make a copy for me, it would be great! Also, make sure your dogs are upto date on shots as we don't want anyone getting sick.

I am trying my hardest to make it Chicago on September 24th.  I will not be able to make it on September 23rd and won't have email access after this Thursday, September 14th at 5:00p.m.  Can you let me know what time and where you will be meeting on the 24th?

Thanks,

Chris and Nika

Dear Anna,

  I am looking forward to meeting some of the available males out there; I believe Bailey and Ricci are coming.  I don't know anything about Chicago or where to meet.  If the meeting is Sunday morning, I could pick you up early in Milwaukee and take you back to Chicago with me.  I would probably prefer Sunday as I believe that is when Ricci is coming, (not sure about Bailey).  I'll be watching for further updates.

Bailystok (Baily) is happy about the upcoming meeting. We would like to have him checked on Saturday as we want to avoid the weekend home bound traffic back into Michigan. Baily would like a meeting place with a lot of trees   as he did not get a chance to leave his mark in Chicago when he first arrived at the airport.

Looking forward to receiving any futher meeting info

We would like to know the cost of the dog statue,  if they come marbled colored and will any be available at the meeting (even if they are not marbled). Fred & Annette & {:@

I can see that we are divided on the choice of date. And no ideas on location yet? I have received an email from John (Chara's owner) who have suggested a nice location. I asked him to post it here himself. Please respond if it will work for you.

Can everyone please email the club with your contact phone numbers. This way I KNOW I can reach you.

I can bring two figurines I have stored in my house. The rest of them are at Tatiana's. I'll check with her on the price, as she was the one who brought them from Russia. They are all black-and-white, no marbles :-) sorry. If anyone else wants one, let me know, as I will not bring extras for the fear of breaking them on the way.

In your next post please state:

1) where you will be staying in Chicago area

2) when you will arrive

3) when you will depart

4) prefference on the date/time, how flexible you are

5) prefference on the location, how flexible you are

Waiting to hear from y'all ;-)

Anna

P.S. I would prefer to meet with everyone at the same time, but if one dog can't make it, then I will look him/her over individually. So don't panic, anyone!

Good morning Anna,

In response to your email, I will not be staying the evening in Chicago, as the distance is about 2 1/2 hours from home.  I am flexible as to which day and what times.  As long as I can get Mapquest directions, I can get almost anywhere, eventually.

When will the boys be there would be my preference.

Thanks!

Elaine and Nikalena

Hello,

Ricci & I will be staying the weekend in the Milwaukee area (Waukesha).  We will not be staying overnight in Chicago, but we will drive down on either Saturday or Sunday at any time of day.  I will also be using Mapquest to find the meeting location.  We are very flexible on day/time and location.

Thanks,

Becky & Ricci

Anna,

   I can hold the meeting at my home on Saturday 9/23/06 from 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.

My home is across from a park where the dogs can stretch out and I am about 40 minutes north of Chicago and about five miles off of the Tri-State Tollway ( Route 94/294) that connects Mich.,Ind., Ill., and Wisc. Any members that would need directions can go to www.mapquest.com and set the destination as: 139 Southfield Drive, Vernon Hills, Il. 60061 or call me at (847) 918-8456 for directions. Please let me know if the meeting will be held and how many members ( with guests and dogs) would attend.

   Thanks,

   John VanDerMeulen

Hi everyone! It seems to me that John's house is the best location for the meeting, since in case of rain we can still meet inside (THANK YOU, JOHN!!!). And Saturday afternoon seems to be the best time, say around 3pm. Who would have a problem with this?

Now, I did not realize how far everyone is from each other... And my business trip does not cover a rental car, so I am totally dependent on someone picking me up and bringing me to John's house for the meeting, and then taking me to wherever I spend the night (tentatively in Naperville at Natalia's house, who is currently without a car herself). What would you say about splitting the cost of a cheap rental (~$55)? If we have 6+ people at this meeting, it will be less than $10 a person. It would simplify coordinating the meeting dramatically!

Let me know what you think.

Anna

Dear John and Anna,

Saturday at 3:00pm sounds just fine.  Thanks to both of you for making this meeting possible.  I would be happy to contribute towards the rental car.  Nikalena and I will be the only ones attending the meeting.  I have the directions printed off mapquest already!

See you Saturday!

Elaine and Nikalena

Hello Anna,

Yes, this all sounds great.  Ricci & I will be at John's home at 3:00pm next Saturday.  I agree about the rental car simplifying the arrangements and am happy to contribute toward the cost.  See you then!

Becky & Ricci

P.S.  Thank you John, for hosting all of us and our dogs.

RSC Meeting Saturday 9/23/06 3:00 P.M.:

  Glad that a number of members can make it to my house. My cell phone number is (847) 323-5260 in the event that someone needs to contact me in an emergency. Some specific notes to members follows as I am familar with driving times from the Milwaukee area ( I love to go to Summerfest!) and Michigan.

 Elaine and Becky should have about an a 1 hour 20 minute drive from the Milwaukee area to my house. I hope that Mapquest has you coming down the Tri-State( Route 94) and exiting onto Route 60, Townline Road in Illinois. Sometimes Mapquest can give some strange directions. If you need to, please feel free to call me if you have problems finding 139 Southfield Drive in Vernon Hills.

Natalia should have about an hour drive from Naperville and Mapquest should bring you up Route 355, to 290/53 and ultimately getting you onto Route 83 north. My subdivision is right off of Route 83. Please call me if you need assistance getting here.

Fred and Annette, I don't know where you are coming from in Michigan but your trip if you are in the Holland area would be about 2 1/2 to 3 hours to my home. The trip on Route 94/294 would take around the Chicago area ( Downtown Chicago traffic can be bad even on a Saturday) and should be only moderately heavy if you are travelling only on Saturday. I hope you can make the journey!

Please feel free to call me with any questions about travel or the dogs accomodations.

Anna, I will be glad to contribute to a rental car. If there are any problems just call.

John V - Thank you in advance for the use of your residence for the meeting. We made the mistake of going through Chicago to get the dog, an 8 hour trip that should have only been 5. We took the other way home and it was a lot faster. We live about an hour north of Detroit and will get the mapquest info on how to get to your place. My cell phone #248-613-3226, prior to Friday my home phone # 248-618-4662, email - tyszkas@ix.netcom.com

 Anna - We would be willing to go in for the cost of your rental car.

Looking forward to seeing some of the other dogs. Fred, Annette & Baily
