The 2022 National week began with our customary Welcome Party, held in the Annex Room in the hotel. Funding was provided in part by the West Coast Spinone Club in order to welcome guests to the Pacific Northwest. The Annex Room has a bar and ample room for gathering and a balcony overlooking the Japanese gardens and pond – a great spot for a party, and what a party it was! Drinks and conversations were flowing! Those attending were given one free drink ticket and treated to delicious appetizers. It was the perfect venue for renewing old acquaintances and meeting new people A great way to start the week off!
