ARBA Rules On Youth Exhibitors

Effective October 1 the ARBA rule regarding open breeders showing in youth will read as follows.

Revised SECTION 52. Youth exhibitors may enter sanctioned youth shows between the ages of five (5) and eighteen (18) years. An adult cannot show in youth classes at any time. Youth exhibitors must be able to handle their own animals. Youth exhibitors are not required to carry their own animals to the table. If stated in the show catalog,a show committee may require all youth entries be carried by a youth.

Its interesting to read. How often his has been misapplied? For example it does NOT say that the youth member must put the rabbit on the table. It says carry to the table. We have been to many shows where the committee requires the youth to place the rabbit on the table. This is an incorrect interpretation of this rule.

2011 Ohio State Mini Convention

Being a¬†University¬†of Michigan fan and travelling into Columbus home of the Ohio State Buckeyes would normally be similar to torture. However, the end of April / First part of May is always one of my favorite times to go to Columbus. That’s because its the Ohio State Mini Convention.

This is a cooped and pre-entry show. Its always very well attended. The showroom is large, and never seems too overly crowded. Many top breeders attend the show.

The convention is this coming weekend. We look forward to seeing many of our friends from across the country.
