Event description


Gather up the Welshies and head for Pinehurst/Southern Pines, NC for the 5th annual Stink Eye which is shaping up to be even better than last year.

We will be back at the Hampton Inn and looking foward to seeing old friends as well as new ones. We look forward to seeing all the Welsh Terriers as well as their non Welsh Terrier friends.

Thursday is a check-in day with dinner on your own. During the evening, we will have our Meet and Greet with drinks at the Build-A-Bar as well as hors d'oeuvres. It's a great time to meet all your online friends, both human and four-legged ones. For those of you arriving early, get out and explore the Village of Pinehurst, Carolina Hotel, downtown Southern Pines or the famous Pinehurst Golf Club where the PGA is held. If you're a golfer, don't forget your golf clubs as we will have some special deals at a few of the golf courses. This is also an area that is known for potters and their lovely pottery. Nearby Seagrove has many great pottery shops.
