Southern Alpaca Group BAS Regional Show
Judge Jay Holland Saturday 13 September 2014
Our 4th annual show, this promises to be a great event for us all and we anticipate a full day with 120 entries from breeders large and small. Romsey Show receives around 25,000 visitors, so a really good opportunity for us to show off our alpacas and promote the industry to people who enjoy the countryside. To be run as a colour championship, to BAS Rules, and as a short fleece show open to all registered alpacas with Huacaya and Suri classes. All alpacas must have been sheared in the last 6 months. There will be classes for Junior Handlers and multi coloured alpacas.
Entries will be taken on line, via the BAS website so all very easy. Being only a one day show with limited entries, at a time of year when most of us have finished births and school holidays it is sure to very popular, so to avoid disappointment get your entries in as soon as they open..
We welcome volunteers to help at the show, so if you would like to get involved do please get in touch. There will be lots to do for example putting up penning the day before and taking it down again at the end, we also need stewards on the day for the collecting ring and help on the Secretaries table.
Friday 28th June 4pm Visit to Bozedown Alpacas, followed by supper at a local pub. Ever wondered what goes on at a very large alpaca farm? Partner Mary-Jo Smith will talk us through the management of her herd of alpacas.
