BAS National Halter and Fleece Show Update 

30 November 2015

HALTER SHOW ENTRIES OPEN TUESDAY 1ST DEC 9.00AM £40 + VAT PER ANIMAL (closes 31st Dec or when max number reached)

PLEASE NOTE:FLEECE SHOW ENTRIES NOW OPEN TUESDAY 8TH DEC 9.00AM £20 + VAT PER FLEECE (closes 15th Jan or when max number of 240 fleeces reached)



In response to feedback from the over-subscribed National Show this year, a number of changes have been made to the entry system. In order to allow exhibitors at the Halter Show an extended period in which to choose their final show team yet ensure the funds are secure for our society before the final payment is made on the venue, a block-booking system will be available to all.

Entries will open on 1stDecember 2015 at 9.00am and close on 31stDecember or whenever maximum numbers have been reached

Entries will be made via 'Manage Your Herd' in the Registry section of the BAS website.

Choose 'Other Fees' from the left hand side menu, then the option of either 'National Show Huacaya' or 'National Show Suri' and enter the number of entries for that breed.

Electricity for fans should be booked at the same time also via the 'Other Fees' option. There is a maximum of four fans per socket. Gold, Silver and Silver Plus sponsors will have already been allocated one electrical hook up and any additional sockets must be pre-booked.  

Once purchases have been selected, click on 'Submit to Breed Society'. (Do not use browser back button).  The fees will be added to your on-line shopping basket and can be paid for in the normal way, using a credit or debit card via the PayPal link, by sending a cheque made payable to The BAS, or by direct bank transfer (please remember to add your herd letters as the reference). Entries are not secure until payment has been received. No refunds will be given.  Please note receipts may not be issued for a number of days due to other commitments.

Whilst we have additional space and two show rings for 2016, we are restricted by the number of alpacas that can be judged over the two days and therefore we cannot guarantee entry. If our capacity is reached the system will be closed as soon as possible after this point. Any entries taken after capacity and before closing, will be informed within three working days, and any refunds will be given if payment already made. (NB The office will be closed over Christmas. If entries exceed capacity over the holiday period, refunds will be made as soon as possible in the New Year.) 

All exhibitors will be given instruction on how to make named entries once block-bookings have closed.

IMPORTANT:All 2015 born cria must be registered with the society before the 22nd of January 2016 in order to ensure entry in the show.

Entries are restricted to maximum of three entries per class (irrespective of any split classes)

NEW: Intermediate Suri classes will be split into shorn and unshorn (ie in second year fleece). These class winners will then both be judged in the relevant colour championship.
