SCHEDULE for 2017 Show - Fiber and performance classes will be on Saturday and halter classes will be on Sunday.
Our llama show is bringing in three judges for the weekend. On Saturday, Rawna Hamann from Maple Valley, WA, will evaluate shorn fleeces and entries in the
fleece-on classes. There will also be an area for you to offer llama fleeces for sale to the public.
Also on Saturday, performance classes will be judged by Joy Bishop-Forshey from Wauseon, OH and Eran McCarty from Fortville, IN.
On Sunday, Joy and Eran will team up and both judge halter classes for a double halter show.
The Western Championship is back thanks to Debby Gremmels and her group of volunteers!
The "Oaks Llama Farms" (Hidden Oaks, Wild Oaks, and Silver Oaks)are organizing a dinner for Saturday night. If you want to
attend the dinner, you must RSVP - see the show packet for details. RSVP deadline is 9/13.
NEW REQUIREMENTS to have 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. My mailing address is 3410 NW 60th St, Corvallis, OR 97330
The show packet in Word format is here to download and if it comes through with
funny formatting, try this PDF version.
You are able to REGISTER ONLINE for the show now! This link
will get you to the ILR Calendar of Events, scroll down to the 23rd and 24th of
September to find the Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival and click on the "Register for this Event" button. If you have questions,
please contact Hal.
Please note that I could not make ILR's ShowManager "roll over" or do other tricks, especially with discounts.
For example, if you have a shorn fleece to enter and want the same animal's fleece evaluated in the fleece-on class, you will get
a reduced package price. Please register for both classes but know the total on your ShowManager will not show the discount. I
will have accurate invoices available when you check in at the show.
Another difference is that I could not rename class 99, ShowManager labels this as the "composite" class, and the show packet
calls this "Versatility." After you enter a fleece class, performance class, and a halter class, there is no additional cost for
class 99, it just helps us keep track of who is in contention for the award.
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 Award - you all are great to work with and thanks for
including the llamas in the Festival!
