Want to Host an ILR-SD Event? 

Let us help you get started…


           The ILR-SD was developed in response to the requests of the membership and has been guided by the hard work of our standing ILR-SD committees. The Guidelines for ILR-SD Shows are in place on the ILR website, www.lamaregistry.com. They will soon be available in a downloadable format as well. Exhibiting your llamas at a show is a great way to support the ILR-SD, but we can use your help in other areas as well…

            Host a Show – The ILR-SD is designed to let local show management customize the event to suite the needs of your area. How do you get started?? Just contact the ILR office and pay the $50 dollar per event sanctioning fee. Also, you must hire an ILR-SD approved judge – the list is available at the website or call the ILR office. List your show on the ILR Events Calendar and it will be highlighted! After that, it’s up to you – pick and choose the ILR-SD approved point classes that fit the needs of your participants (they are listed on the website) and you can add any non-point classes that your exhibitors would like!  That’s it – you’re ready to host an ILR sanctioned show – now go have fun!

Immediately after the show is completed, the $1 per head user fee per show, if you use the ShowManager software through the ILR, or $2 per head if you don’t, is due in the ILR office along with the show results. The results are posted on the ILR website within a few days of being received.

            Host an ILR-SD Judges Clinic – we will be recertifying our judges for 2010 and need places to hold the training clinics. If you would like to host one on your farm or in conjunction with a llama show or convention, please contact the ILR office. The fleece judging clinics are starting in July with the first one being held in Sparta, WI on July 10-12, 2009. There are still openings available for that event. The judges committee is finalizing the criterion for halter, youth and performance judges and will need venues to hold those clinics. What a great way to support the ILR-SD – please call the ILR office if you want to help with our education and training sessions!

Any questions? Please call the ILR Office or email the ILR Board at info@lamaregistry.com. We are working for you and with you for a strong llama industry.

The excitement is back in the llama industry. You are welcome to come along for the ride!

ALONE we struggle; TOGETHER we thrive! Join the ILR today!
