Go to Autumn Fleece Challenge at www.alpacareg.com and either create an account or sign in if you already have an account.
After registering your selected alpacas, print off a copy of each fleece tag and place them with your fleece CUT SIDE OUT in a clear plastic bag of 1 mil thickness or less, approximately 30 gallons. Exhibitors who bring their fleeces in a bag which does not comply with this AOA rule will be asked to change their bag (s) during check in.
Refer to Part 19 (appendix c) GUIDELINES FOR PREPARATION OF FLEECE FOR SHOWING, which is located on the AOA Website.
Print and send a copy of:
- Your completed registration
- ARI Certificate for each fleece entered. If your name does not appear on the ARI Certificate, please include an Owner of Record to Show Entry Form. Please ensure the copy of the ARI Certificate is from the original and not a Certificate Copy downloaded from the AOA site.
- Signed Fleece Show Exhibitor Disclosure Form for Wade Gease. If your alpaca is co-owned and you would like both owners listed in the final results, be sure to include signed disclosures for all owners. Please read the disclosure carefully and check the two appropriate boxes, as the disclosure has changed from previous years.
UPS, FEDERAL EXPRESS and USPS are all acceptable. Unless you have a prepaid label from UPS or FEDERAL EXPRESS, all fleeces will be mailed back using the USPS. Choose "Fleece Mail Back" on the registration site if you would like to pay upfront to have your fleeces mailed back to you after the AUTUMN FLEECES CHALLENGE at $15.00 per fleece.
To provide a prepaid label when you ship your fleeces out, bring your fleece to UPS or FEDERAL EXPRESS with the box UNSEALED so that you can slip your label in the box before shipping.
Mary Martinez-Rigo SAC Fleece Show Superintendent can take your fleeces to the SAC Fleece Show (CABO Halter Show) in February. Chain of Custody from one Superintendent to another is the way to go! Let's Keep These Fleeces Moving.
