Show Supporters,

It is with great disappointment that I will not be able to host the Best of the US Alpaca Show in 2016. There were just to many obstacles to over come in order host the show this year. I attempted to find a new date and location that would allow me to host the show, however, I did not want to affect other eastern shows, so I have to suspend the show for a year.

As an industry advocate I hope you will support the other shows you can fit into your schedule, including the AOA National Show in Ft Wayne March 17-20, 2016. For details visit the AOA Show website.

For a great Ohio show, consider attending the 12th Annual Buckeye Alpaca Show April 9-10, 2016 at the Arena Complex, Summit County Fairgrounds, Tallmadge, Ohio. Visit the show web site at

For my loyal supporters I do plan on hosting the show in March 2017 in Columbus at the Ohio State Fairgrounds as I have the past seven years, so I hope to see you in 2017 at the 8th Best of the US Alpaca Show.

Thank you again for 7 great years!
