The Show will be run to the BAS Show Rules 2018 Edition available by clicking here

The BAS Bio Security Guidelines will also be implemented. A copy is available by clicking here

In response to feedback from the over-subscribed National Show this year, a number of changes have been made to bring about improvements. Changes to the running order will ensure both rings are fully utilised therefore allowing an increase in entries to a maximum of 600.

In order to allow exhibitors at the Halter Show an extended period in which to choose their final show team, a pre-booking system will be available.

Entries will open on 1st December 2017 at 9am and close on 31st December, or whenever maximum numbers (600) have been reached

Entries will be made via Manage Your Own Herd in the Registry section of the BAS website.

From the Manage your Own Herd menu option, select Show Entries, select The National Halter Show, type in the number of places you require (£56.40 inc vat each), type in the number of fan hook ups you require (maximum 4 fans per hook up – £84 inc vat each), click on Submit.

Gold, Silver and Bronze sponsors will have already been allocated one electrical hook up.

The fees will be added to your on-line shopping basket and can be paid for in the normal way, using a credit or debit card via the PayPal link, by sending a cheque made payable to the BAS, or by direct bank transfer (please remember to add your herd letters as the reference). Entries are not secure until payment has been received. No refunds will be given. Please note receipts are not produced automatically so please bear with us during this very busy time.

Whilst we have the space and two show rings for 2018, we are restricted by the number of alpacas that can be judged over the two days. We cannot therefore guarantee entry. If our capacity is reached the system will be closed as soon as possible. Any entries logged after capacity and before closing, will be informed within three working days, and refunds will be given if payment has already been made. (NB The office will be closed over Christmas. If entries exceed capacity over the holiday period, refunds will be made as soon as possible in the New Year.)

PLEASE NOTE: ENTRIES OPEN TO SELECT YOUR ALPACAS ON 5th FEBRUARY 2018 FOR ONE WEEK ONLY  

Alpacas to be entered via Manage your Own Herd option on the BAS website, select Show Entries, select The National Halter Show, ONLY BAS MEMBERS WITH PRE-BOOKED PLACES WILL HAVE ACCESS, enter the number of animals to match the number of places booked in December, select the correct class for each animal and type in the last date shorn, click on Submit

New for 2018:

– In acknowledgment of two emerging colour categories, the 2018 BAS National Show will be offering four ‘Best’ awards for the following alpacas, from within the huacaya and suri multi classes (180 and 280).

Best Huacaya Appaloosa

Best Huacaya Modern Grey

Best Suri Appaloosa

Best Suri Modern Grey

The BAS Board have approved these four special awards for the 2018 BAS National Show only.

The above awards will be given in the same way that ‘Judges Choice Awards’ are given at some fleece shows. No definition will be used, instead the judges will use their discretion and experience when choosing the winners.

For details on sponsoring these four Best Sashes, please email Debbie at nationalshow@bas-uk.com

– Entries for sires progeny classes (huacaya and suri) will be accepted by the owner of the sire by 12 noon on Saturday the 24th of March 2018 at the ring-side reception desk. Please click here for more info
