The dates of the 2018 Flock & Fiber Festival ILR Llama Show and ILR Western Championship are the 22nd and 23rd of September.

SCHEDULE for 2018 Show - On Saturday we will judge fleece-on and shorn fiber (shorn fiber is due Friday evening) and run the performance classes (double show), and on Sunday we will have the double halter show.

We had a reasonable turn-out of kids for the youth classes last year but we have space for more! Let you llama friends know about the show and arrange your schedule to be in Canby the 22nd and 23rd of September. We love the energy a barn full of kids brings to the show so start planning now and get out on the obstacles with your llama!

Our llama show is bringing in three judges for the weekend. I'm working on lining up a fleece judge for Friday evening and Saturday - more on that in future updates. There will also be an area for you to offer llama fleeces for sale to the public.

Terry Duespohl (Seneca, PA) and Katie Mazac (River Falls, WI) will judge performance classes on Saturday and halter classes on Sunday. Gogi Villanueva will start judging shorn fleeces on Friday evening and finish them on Saturday and then jump into the fleece-on entries.

The ILR Western Championship is back thanks to Debby Gremmels and her group of volunteers! Thanks Debby and crew! A dinner is being organized by Heidi White for Saturday evening - more details will be forthcoming.

NOTE for those that want a "sale stall." If you purchase a "sale stall" for one or more animals, you are classified as an OFFF vendor and all vendors must carry liability insurance. Coverage should be for $1 million and name Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival and its Festival Planning Committee as additional insured. Also, such insurance afforded the additional insured is primary and non-contributing with any other insurance the additional insured may carry. The address for the festival is: Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival, 30881 SE Bald Peak Rd, Hillsboro, OR 97123. The show superintendent needs this form WHEN YOU REGISTER for the sale stall - that is, before you get to the fairgrounds. Send it to Hal at 3410 NW 60th St, Corvallis, OR 97330.

These links will give you the 2018 catalog. Here is the 2018 show packet for download, here is a Word version, and if the paging is messed up in that version, please down load the PDF Version.

2 August UPDATE: The OFFF show is NOT live on ShowManager yet. I will post here when ShowManager is live. Issues that I anticipate with ShowManager are listed below...

First, ShowManager is not handling that halter and performance are double shows and fleece is a single show – the ILR per animal fee charged for halter and performance animals will be wrong.

Second, if you are entering an animal’s bagged fleece and also entering them for a fleece-on evaluation, ShowManager will charge you for two separate fleece classes rather than the “fleece package.”

Third, if you want an animal to compete for the Versatility Award (and they are in a halter class, fleece class, and at least one performance class), look for class #99 – ShowManager labeled it as “Composite” and I can’t change the name.

I’m sorry that I am not able to get SM to roll over and play dead. If you use the Registration Summary Form from the packet and count all your classes carefully, you will have an accurate total. I will have accurate invoices for you when you check in at the show. See you in Canby! Hal

  • ILR forms for entering shorn fleeces to be judged. These are required for shorn fleece entries.
  • Information about shorn fleece and coat-on/fleece-on fiber types including the "do's" and "dont's" of fiber preparation for ILR judging.
  • As always, my thanks to Brandy Chastain, the Festival Organizer, and the OFFF Board for their support of our show and the Best of Show Diamond Awards - you all are great to work with and thanks for including the llamas in the Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival !
