The 9th annual LFA Championship Show and Sale will be the weekend
of September 17, 2010 at the Iowa Equestrian Center in Cedar Rapids. We
welcome every breeder to attend. It highlights the finest llamas in North
America and a great time together with friends for a fun filled weekend.

The event starts Thursday evening, September 16th, with Keith and Patti Wattigney�s shrimp
boil. Great Southern hospitality!

Friday is the Fall Harvest Show -- an ILR-SD sanctioned show - along with the ALSA Great
Lakes Regional Show. That night is heavy hor d�oeuvres hosted by the LFA.

Saturday morning starts with introduction of animals on the red carpet. A hands-on preview will
follow. Darrell Anderson will then take his place on the auction block with Mike Gerken providing
the commentary about each animal. The auction starts with breedings to some of the top herdsires in
the country. Take this opportunity to add some new bloodlines to your herd. The auction continues
with the selling of 36 premier llamas consigned by breeders from across North America. We thank
the consigners for offering some of their very best and we encourage you to take the opportunity for
a new addition.

The 9th annual LFA World Futurity Championship Show kicks off Sunday morning. This event
will again boast the top payouts in the country. This is a great opportunity for earning a years worth
of bragging rights and some cash in your pocket.

We would like to thank our sponsors for their generosity and support, without their commitment
this weekend would not be possible. We would also like to thank the countless volunteers that help
make this event possible. It is definitely a group effort to put on an event of this magnitude and the
entire industry benefits from those committed to making this event a success year after year.

With all that said, we hope to see you in Cedar Rapids to compete in this year�s event. The LFA
continues to promote the future of the llama industry and with your support, we can all have a fun
future together!
