The North American Alpaca Show is
preparing for it's 13th year in 2014. One of the oldies
but goodies on the National Alpaca Show circuit. NAAS, as
our friends like to call it, is run by
Alpaca Show Management Services
which is a blending of show coordinator veterans Kevin O'Leary and Scott Young
who together have run over 50 Alpaca Shows across the country.
NAAS 2014 will continue to
provide all of the great things it has come to stand for
including making major donations to alpaca related charities each year. We are really excited to continue to
work with these prestigious programs!
Alpaca Show Management Services would not be themselves if they did not bring innovation
to their Spring shows. This spring we believe we are going to
blow your alpaca socks off with this year's surprises!
This year we are going to let you see what the judges see, as
they see it and in HD no less! We are going to put a GoPro
camera in each ring with the judges and feed the signal
wirelessly to a big screen TV ringside so everyone can watch and
get a feel for what the judge is seeing. Of course so much
more goes into place standings than just what you can see, but
this new and enhanced show perk will undoubtedly be a positive
learning experience for all.
This year's show will be judged
on a 60/40 basis with alpaca judging happening on Saturday and
Sunday. Check-in is on Friday. We
are going to have two rings; one for males one for females.
Not to worry, for you performance bugs we will have a 3rd ring
for part of the show where we will have exhibition performance
classes with a Judge to be announced at a later date.

The show will be offering some new and exciting seminars, all free of charge. Please
look at the schedule of events and seminar outlines which will be online. Due to space
limitations some seminars will be limited to 30 attendees on a first come, first served basis.
Also at this year's show we will be holding a silent auction
with proceeds benefitting the Nunoa Project and the Camelid
Studies program both headed by Dr. Steve Purdy. Both of
these very noble and worthwhile programs need our support.
If you would like to donate items for the auction, time for the
project, or money to help with the effort you can visit
Part of the proceeds from the North American Alpaca Show are
donated to this worthwhile organization each year in support of
