Travel Information & Weather


While we can’t offer travel by broomstick, floo powder or on the Hogwarts Express, travel logistics should still be fairly easy!

Both Elkton, MD and York, PA are conveniently located close to major highways (I-95 and I-81 respectively). The closest major airport to York is Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, about 1:20 minutes. Harrisburg International is about 45 minutes away.

To say that the Mid-Atlantic region has changeable weather is a bit of an understatement! In 2016, our last frost was less than a month before our first week of 90 degree temperatures. Fortunately, those swings will be largely mitigated by our lovely, indoor venue for most of our events.

For the Field Events, average temperatures in Elkton, MD should be between 50 degrees and 79 degrees.

About the Flat-Coated Retriever

A determined hunting dog with a small head and mouth can retrieve a large bird, but will not be able to hold it as gently and securely and retrieve repetitively with as much stamina and longevity as the dog with the long head, long muzzle and large, strong jaws.
