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!
