Changes for 2014

New website for State Fair:  www.castatefair.org

The schedule is a little different:

  • Costume class is Saturday evening after halter classes, instead of Thursday evening - Still time to see it!

  • Addition of a Suri Division

  • Walking and Shorn Fleece is back.  If you aren't able to attend Fair but would still like to show your shorn fleece, you may send your fleece in with a friend or make arrangements with me.

  • Addition of a Master Division.  However, if there are not enough entries to fill the division, it will be combined with Advanced.

  • There will be demonstrations/exhibitions daily.  (i.e. Pooh Corner)

State Fair Champion

  • You do not need the same handler throughout the show to compete for State Fair Champion.

The theme is “The Best.”  As you can see from the picture above, using lots of blue ribbons

(i.e.: The Best exhibits, the Best Parents, the Best (fill in the blank)
