Welcome to the North American Alpaca Show 2014!
 


Registration is Open!

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 www.nunoaproject.org.  Part of the proceeds from the North American Alpaca Show are donated to this worthwhile organization each year in support of their efforts.

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 2014 North Amercian Alpaca Show!
