The North American Alpaca Show is
preparing for it's 12th year in 2013. 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 2013 will continue to
provide all of the great things it has come to stand for
including making a major donation to the Camelid Studies
Program each year. We are really excited to continue to
work with this prestigious program!
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. The official check-in is on Friday but if you
would like, you may check-in after 3pm on Thursday. We
are going to have three rings; one for huacaya males, one for
huacaya females, and one for suri and performance classes with a
smattering of other Huacaya classes.
We have secured three highly regarded judges to assess your
Amanda VandenBosch- Huacaya Females & Huacaya Production Classes Jude Anderson - Huacaya Males & Huacaya Production Classes Helen Humphreys - Huacaya Grey & Multi, All Suri Classes, Performance
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.
Please remember that the weather in early spring can be
unpredictable in New England, so come prepared! Should you have
any questions relating to the show, please don't hesitate to get
in touch with one of the organizing farms.
Don 't forget to send your ARI's, Exhibitor's
Disclosure Form, & Owner of Record for Show Entry Form (if
applicable) to the Show Superintendent.
We look forward to seeing you in Springfield at the 2013 North Amercian Alpaca
