more than two adult llamas, 3 juvies or 3 alpacas are permitted in each stall. If you wish to provide your own
panels as stall fronts to improve animal visibility, you must indicate this on your entry form—otherwise there

removed by show management. Stalls may also be purchased as farm displays spaces for $40.00 per stall. Barn
aisles must be kept open at all times to permit dust control. Stalls for tack may be purchased at the same price-
$40.00 per stall.

2015 ALSA Grand National Information
Bedding
All stall floors are concrete. There will be no bedding provided. You will need to bring your own mats
or carpeting. You may bring your own cardboard, wood shavings, straw and/or mats. Sand - dirt or shredded paper is
not allowed.

                                               Grooming
There are wash rooms. Blowing may be done in the building but away from the stalling area and only in those
designated areas.

                                       Water & Electric

                  Qualifying for 2015 Grand National
See 19th Edition of ALSA Handbook - Page 28, Section 2: Qualifying.

                                   Performance Classes
In response to comments and suggestions from exhibitors, there will be some changes to how the performance
classes are run this year. Pack will be the first class for each division, with the course split between at least two
judges. When all exhibitors in that division have completed the pack course, the walk-throughs for the
Obstacle and Public Relations courses will take place for that division. The Obstacle and Public Relations
courses will run simultaneously and each exhibitor may choose in which order to complete them. Performance
walk-throughs will take priority over other classes and courses held open as necessary to ensure no exhibitor
misses a class.

                                          Halter Classes
Each llama must be entered in its appropriate age and wool division at the time of the Grand National,
regardless of the age or wool division in which you initially qualified. On a llama’s date of birth, the llama
moves up to the older class. All four wool divisions will be included in the Grand National Show. If you
qualified at a show where wool divisions were combined (e.g., Light/Medium or Medium/Heavy), you must
choose the correct wool division for the Grand Nationals.

Since this is the first year for Alpaca Halter classes, they will be conducted as a Level I show. Please review
Part K of the ALSA Handbook for rules relating to alpaca halter classes and contact the Grand National Com-
mittee if you have any questions.

For GOS and Produce, please make your entry in the Dam or Sire’s name on your entry form and send a copy
of their ILR Certificate.

                                                 Vendors
Vendors are welcome. Those interested in becoming a vendor should contact the ALSA office for information.
Youth Information
We will be offering a challenge once again this year to the youth and their 4H Leaders! If this challenge is met, we
will give each of our youth exhibors that are entered in 5 youth classes, (ie. Youth Showmanship, Youth Judging,
Youth Obstacle, Youth Public Relations, and Youth Pack) a $25.00 refund.
An example of this:
A youth enteres the 5 youth classes named above. This is counted as one entry. If the same youth enters again
with an Alpaca for the three youth alpaca performance classes(since they cannot enter Youth Showmanhip or
Youth Judging a second time), this is also counted as another entry. This example could be reversed. So - in
other words, this youth would be entered in 8 classes and be counted as two entries, but he/she will only be
eligible for the $25.00 refund once.

                         Youth Silent Auction and Raffle
There will be a youth silent auction benefiting the ALSA youth schlorship fund. There will also be raffle items
going toward the 2015 ALSA Grand Nationals. Tickets may be purchased at the ALSA office. Please bring your
donated items to the show or mail in advance to the ALSA office.

                      Sub Jr. and Special Needs Classes
Sub Jr. and Special Need classes are available at the Grand National show at no cost to the exhibitors. The classes available
are obstacle & showmanship. When entering Special Needs classes be sure to send the Exhibitors with Disabilities ALSA
Form , found on the ALSA website, with your entry information.

                                             Costume Class
We will have two different costume classes at the Show this year; 8 years thru 18 years of age and 19 years &
older. There will be a $10.00 entry fee cost for entering costume. Be sure to start planning your costume now.

                                                     Banners
Everone may have signage displayed in the arenas. Drop your banners in office and then they may be removed
after completion of the show for pick up.
.

                                      ALSA Evening Meal
There will be a Saturday Oct. 24th evening meal. There is a $15.00 charge per person for the meal, reservations/
tickets required. Youth under 10, $13.00. (Pre-purchase on your entry form ) Many trophies and awards will
