Convention Updates

Entries:  Today, October 18 is the last day to enter the ARBA Convention, either as a new exhibitor or add on to your entries.  Yes, the deadline was extended.  Isn’t entering on line wonderful!  I got my entries in by the first deadline, but the offer to allow me to add more was just too tempting. 

Also, mark down next Monday, October 25.  That is the last day to make free changes in class and ear number to your Convention entries.  You can change everything except breed.  Again, love the on-line system!

Banquet:  A very nice banquet at a very reasonable price is planned for Convention.  Be sure to order your tickets for the AFLRC Awards Banquet by October 30.  Its $20 per adult, children under 12, $10.  Send to Deb L.  Her address is in the newest Fuzzy Tales. 

Don’t forget that we are holding an auction during the banquet.  This raises money for the awards at the spring National show.  So please bring items to donate and be prepared to bid (high!).

Convention Fundraisers:  Due to local laws, raffles are not allowed in Minnesota.  Its considered gambling…this makes our normal fundraising activities a bit more complex than normal but never fear!  There will still be items at the AFLRC booth, which will be in a silent auction rather than a raffle.  We did this at Nationals in Ohio and it worked very well.  Please bring donations for the table silent auction.   More updates later in the week……start packing, here we come Minneapolis!
