ACEF RECEPTION & DANCE 2007 - Unlike other activities, the cost of our reception has remained the same.
SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 11th, 2007, COME CELEBRATE OUR 22nd ANNUAL RECEPTION AND DANCE at the New York's Hotel Pennsylvania in the Penn Top Ballroom from 8:00PM to Midnight.
Mark your calendar, and don't miss the one really fun party that is well represented by a true cross-section of our sport. Everyone agrees the ACEF Sunday night party is the place to be for a friendly and enjoyable evening. IT IS OPEN TO EVERYONE AND ANYONE IN THE DOG GAME! You don't have to be on anyone's special list or have to be a judge or member of any organization. You sure don't have to know anyone in "high" places. Everyone is welcome. Reservations are on first-come, first-serve basis.
IF YOU WILL BE IN NEW YORK, DO PLAN TO ATTEND. No speeches, no programs; just a short time out for the free room drawings. Dress: Semi-Formal. Plenty of the men in tux but you will be perfectly at ease in a business suit and the ladies have always liked their evening gowns but will be perfectly at ease in a dressy dress. The cost of our reception and dance is $50.00 per person. There will be plenty of good food, good music for dancing and most of all, there will be an “across the board” representation of the Dog World from newcomers to old timers and all in between: judges, professional handlers and their enthusiastic young assistants, exhibitors, superintendents and officials. Let us know if you plan to be in New York during the Westminster week (on the dues notice form or via email firstname.lastname@example.org). REFRESHINGLY DIFFERENT FOR A NEW YORK PARTY, EVERYONE WILL BE ABLE TO SIT DOWN, ENJOY A DRINK AND CONVERSATION AND HAVE ROOM TO DANCE.
