Fall Festival Alpaca Show and Roundup Announcing "The Crystal Boot Award"
What is the Crystal Boot Award?
ABR would like to recognize those farms/ranches that participate in the 16th annual Fall Festival. A point value will be assigned for placements in the halter and fleece show. We will be combining all fleece and halter entries for the exhibitor to accumulate a total point for the show. ABR will be acknowledging our exhibitors by awarding a point for every halter and fleece entry into the show which means you will start the show with points. Points are accrued for each farm/ranch depending upon their entries and placements in each halter and fleece class. The farms/ranches that accrue the highest point totals in each of the three divisions as described below will be the recipients of the 2013 Fall Festival Alpaca Roundup Crystal Boot Award. A reserve will also be awarded to the farm/ranch with the second highest point totals in each of the three divisions. Suri and Huacaya will be separate awards. Winner will be announced once the show has ended and the results tabulated. Winners will take their awards from the show.
What are the Categories?
Crystal Boot Range Boss Award (Suri and Huacaya)
Reserve Range Boss Award (Suri and Huacaya)
