National Finch Show in San Diego November 18th-20th - update


For those of you planning on attending the National Finch Show in San Diego November 18th-20th who have not yet made your room reservations, please remember - the $99 group rate (by mentioning Finch Society of San Diego), is only good for the dates 11/16-23/10. You can call to make reservations at 800-772-8527. They can guarantee as many rooms as necessary up to OCTOBER 26th - after that date, the group rate will be based on availability.

The "home base" for this year's event is the Town and Country Resort and Convention Center, 500 Hotel Circle North, San Diego, CA 92108. This hotel is in the heart of San Diego, and been welcoming guests for over 50 years. They offer luxurious accommodations, countless amenities, and devoted attention to their guests.

Their modern accommodations are in 2 towers or ranch style garden bungalows that capture the feeling of a cozy retreat. There are swimming pools, in room coffee makers, remote control TV, in room pay movies, voice mail, high speed internet access (nomimal fee), full bath amenities, iron/ironing board, AM/FM alarm clock radio, hair dryer, free weekday newspaper and room service (6:00 a.m. - midnight).

They also have 5 restaurants - from casual to "inspired" - from Deli to Fresh Seafood and Steak, home made pastries, and food, fun, and spirits!

The Bella Tosca Day Spa, Salon, and Fitness Center invites you to indulge in a 14,000 square foot mediterranean style spa, complete with a yoga room, meditation room, and state of the art fitness center. Treat yourself to a signature massage or a personal body treatment. The spa features 14 treatment rooms, separate men's and women's area complete with locker room, relaxation area, sauna steam room, and jacuzzi.

There are several local attractions within close driving (and some within walking) distance of the Center - including Sea World of San Diego, San Diego Zoo, and many nearby Indian Gaming facilities throughout San Diego county. There are approximately 70 miles of beaches and over 85 beautiful and challenging golf courses in San Diego near the Resort. Belmont Park - a beachfront amusement park is nearby - as is Qualcomm Stadium and Petco Park.

Transportation to and from the Resort and local attractions is convenient through the San Diego Light -Rail Trolley System - which is located just over the foot bridge, a short walk from the North Tower of the Resort.

Also nearby are some of San Diego's historical sites including Old Towne San Diego, the famous Bazaar Del Mundo, Cabrillo National Monument, Gaslamp Quarter, or one of the region's many missions. Also within close proximity to the Resort are the Botanical Gardens, Museums, Galleries, and Wineries in the North Country. sounds like we could make room reservations for a month and not run out of fun things to do before and after this National Finch Show!
