The BAS National Show Committee are delighted to announce the Halter and Fleece Show judges for 2020:

They are Mary-Jo Smith (UK), Natasha Clark (AUS) , Tim Hey (UK) and Ken Hibbits (USA) for halter. Natasha and Ken with judge the Champion of Champions Fleece Show.

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 as in 2019 with the booking staying open for 7 days.

Entries for the halter (Block booking) and fleece show open on Monday 2nd of December at 9 am and the halter block booking entries will close on Sunday 9th December at 9am.  We are NOT operating a first come first serve approach as in previous years, but will keep entries open for a week and will operate a pro-rata reduction should entries go over the 600 maximum. Please note that entries will not be invoiced by the BAS until after entries close on the 9th of December when final numbers are known.

For example if there are 660 animal places applied for, and only 600 available, then a 10% reduction is required.  Anyone with an entry where 10%  represents more than 0.51 of an animal will have a place or places removed. See table below for a scenario where total entries are 630, 660 or 720.

The fleece show will remain open until 9pm on the 16th of February 2020. Entry fees for each halter entry will be £50 plus VAT and for fleece entries £30 + VAT.

The minimum entry is 3 alpacas for welfare reasons but one or two enquiries have come in for smaller entries. Smaller entries (i.e. one or two) can be only be accepted if they are penned with alpacas that are from their home herd and are also entered in to the show. An example of this situation is where 1 or 2 alpacas are agisted on another farm and then they are entered and penned with the home herd entries. Please give me a call to discuss if you have any concerns.  Duncan 07496 578781

Continuing for 2020:

– In acknowledgment of this emerging colour category, the 2020 BAS National Show will be offering two ‘Best’ awards for the following alpacas, from within the huacaya and suri multi classes (180 and 280).

Best Huacaya Appaloosa

Best Suri Appaloosa

The above awards will be given in the same way that ‘Judges Choice Awards’ are given at some fleece shows. The judges will use their discretion and experience when choosing the winners and no specific definition will be implemented. However, the following definition offers a guide to those wishing to exhibit appaloosa alpacas:

The appaloosa alpaca has six or more spots of one or more colour in the saddle, the primary colour of the saddle being a colour which is not grey.

For details on sponsoring these four Best Sashes, please email Duncan 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 28th of March 2020 at the ring-side reception desk. Please click here for more info
