SHOWMANSHIP & SKILL-A-THON FOR THIS SUNDAY, MAY 2 HAS BEEN CANCELED! 

Youth must now choose a time to participate on SATURDAY, MAY 8. We have extended the hours to help accommodate everyone.  All rabbit, cavy & small animal youth must participate in showmanship and skill-a-thon to be eligible to receive fair passes for 2021. EACH youth must sign up for a 15 minute individual time slot on Saturday, May 8 from 8 am – 12 noon OR 3 – 8 pm.

If you had already signed up for a Saturday timeslot, nothing has changed.  In an effort to keep social distancing and participants moving through the building in one direction, youth will start out with showmanship and then move on to the Skill-a-thon and Round Robin tests. If you have any questions or problems, please email Melissa O. at mlordway1978@gmail.com. Good luck to everyone, but most of all have fun!
