November 6 to November 7, 2010
Event Type: ILR 25th Anniversary Sanctioned Show
Event Name: North American Llama & Alpaca ILR-SD Show 2010
Louisville, KY

The 2010 NAILE Show has been chosen to help celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the International Lama Registry.

What will that mean for you as an exhibitor? Plenty!

To help celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the ILR generous sponsors have provided for a small gift for each and every farm exhibitor.

Also, these sponsors want us to have fun at our show, so have provided for some specialty classes to be announced at the exhibitors meeting. These Classes are as such that we all have a chance to win. With specialty classes you have to have special awards which the sponsors are also providing.

Lastly, we will have the same DUAL SANCTIONED ILR-SD & ALSA SANCTIONED SINGLE LLAMA SHOW (INCLUDING MINI CLASSES-Fleece is a single sanctioned ILR-SD show) and a SINGLE OPEN ALPACA SHOW. ILR-SD and ALSA entries for halter will be judged differently in 2010. There will be an ILR-SD halter show one day and an ALSA halter show the opposite day. A continuous performance ring will run in a second ring concurrently with the halter show. Both sanctioned performance classes will run together.

Hank Kaufman and Pam Jensen for llama Halter, Youth & Performance
