The Newfoundland Club of New England is honored to be your host for NCA’s 2015 National, as we return to Warwick, RI.
Thanks to many volunteers, nearby regional clubs and NCA Committees, an event-filled week has been planned for you! There will be two draft tests, two obedience trials, two rally trials, four days of conformation judging, and many informative and educational events. We have also made sure to allow time to share a memorable week with friends old and new, and to celebrate our wonderful Newfoundland dogs!
The Crowne Plaza is our home away from home for the week. The experienced staff at the Crowne have been most helpful with our Specialty planning, and are looking forward to the return of the Newfs for a fourth National Specialty!
All events are held on the grounds of the hotel. All judging will take place outdoors and subject to the usual weather changes of New England, so please plan accordingly.
T.F. Green Airport, located just minutes of the hotel, is serviced by major airlines. Easy access to Interstate 95 makes an easy drive from locations up and down the east coast. Our overflow hotel is located an easy 5 minute drive from the show site. Many malls, restaurants, shops and a public golf course are nearby. Warwick is 10 minutes south of Providence and located within an hour or less from Boston, Plymouth Rock, Connecticut’s casinos, Mystic Seaport, Rhode Island’s beautiful beaches, and the mansions of Newport.
Our logo store will be up and running in time for your holiday shopping! Check back often for updates as we look forward to 2015!

The Reserved Seating Form has been added to the Information Packet downloads.
January 18, 2015: Information Pack Update
A few more changes have been made to the Info Pack. Rather than printing the entire revised edition, please reprint Pages 2, 3, 7, 13, and 31 (especially Page 13 to select your choice of dog color for the national specialty logo pin!). If you have already sent in your Registration Form, you will be contacted to make your selection. Please remember additional pins may be ordered through the WebStore!
Changes have also been made to eliminate any additional confusion to the Summary Order Form/Credit Card Charge Authorization Form in the Info Pack on Page 31. Please note the form should be included with all submissions whether you are paying by check or credit card. If you have already sent in a submission and paid by check, not to worry as one will be completed for you.
Hopefully this helps clarify the use of this form, and thank you for your patience and understanding as we work out the kinks.

January 13, 2015: Reserved Handler Parking
Clarification to the wording on the Reserved Handler Parking order form:
You must have a minimum of 4 entered dogs in your vehicle to be eligible for Reserved Handler Parking.
We understand that the order form to reserve a handler parking space is being submitted prior to the actual show entry date; if for any reason you have submitted an order form and then no longer are entering the required minimum of 4 dogs, please notify the Reserve Handler Parking Chairperson, Sheila Mallinson at KodiakAcres@yahoo.com to cancel your request for a space.
Also please be prepared to provide your show entry confirmation upon arrival at Reserved Handler Parking should there be any questions in regards to the number of dogs entered.
