We are moving the retreats to two NEW and IMPROVED locations for 2007!

Confirmed dates should be announced by Thanksgiving.

We want to thank the following sites for their consideration in hosting our event and working with us on the "demand list" required to satisfy the ladies (LOL, mainly dogs in rooms).

One event is tentatively scheduled for April 19-22, 2007 at Tara Wildlife (http://www.tarawildlife.com -- but the website doesn't even begin to show all the property and lodging), just north of Vicksburg, MISSISSIPPI. Tara is an amazing location, situated on 17,000 absolutely gorgeous acres along the Mississippi River. Their lodge is breathtaking, rooms are comparable to a very nice hotel and their hospitality on our short visit was incredible. This secluded location and well-designed lodge will give us many opportunities to relax, train and have a great time with both our friends and our dogs.

Our other event will be held more than likely some time in March at the Clinton House (http://www.clintonhouse.com) just north of Greenville, SOUTH CAROLINA. We are visiting the Clinton House hopefully some time next week to tie up loose ends and confirm our dates.

Both locations are conveniently located within a short drive off their respective interstates.

We plan to have all the details on both events announced by Thanksgiving.

If you have any questions, please email info@retrieverretreat.com or pm me.

Kristie, I am glad that Tara worked out for your group. I've been there every year for the past 12 years. Great looking place for sure. Many activities for your group to enjoy or just do nothing and watch the sunrise. I promise you will be satisfied with every aspect of the trip to Tara. Real first class operation. Their web site does touch on the way things are at Tara but even that doesn't do it justice. Gene

Update: We're going to Greenville next Tue/Wed to finalize plans with Clinton House. Should have dates by the end of next week.

I also just added a forum to the retreat page -- http://www.retrieverretreat.com/home/forum/

Same forum as used here, so you'll recognize the features. If you are interested in the retreat, please register at the forum so you'll know when more information is available.

Thanks everyone for your support of this event...

I neglected to mention, so will use this for a bump :), that ALL applications RECEIVED (with deposit) PRIOR TO JANUARY 15, 2007 will receive a $20 early bird discount.

Man if you can get me a discount on birds I'd buy them early. I need like 40 for a marking seminar we're putting on and way to lower the bird cost would be awesome....:)
