Alpaca 2021 Fleece Judging to go ahead

Alpaca 2021 Fleece Judging to go ahead

July 6, 2022

The Covid pandemic has had a major impact on our ability to host shows throughout the country. The 2021 National Fleece Show has been one of these casualties. However, we are pleased to announce that we now have a facility to host the judging of the fleeces entered.

The judging of the fleeces will take place over the period 2nd – 5th February at the Bunnythorpe Community Centre (just outside Feilding).

The Community Centre will be closed to the public and only those AANZ members directly involved will be permitted entry to the premises.

Medals, ribbons and Trophies will be awarded in the normal fashion and will be returned with the winning fleeces.

A full list of the fleece results will be emailed to the membership as soon as the results are final.

We wish all exhibitors every success.
