No Animal Qualifying for 2011 - just qualify yourself with an ILR-SD Membership!


REMINDER: You will be able to purchase 'Gathering Dollars' at the Registration Table
to award to Youth for various things -- see info in red below.



We are going to have a YOUTH AUCTION at The Gathering in Des Moines. It will be an opportunity for Youth who have earned 'Gathering Dollars' to purchase awesome, fun, crazy items. We want it to be a lot of fun for the Youth which means we have a lot of items for them to purchase and they have a lot of 'play dollars' to purchase it with. That's where your donations and purchasing and awarding of 'Gathering Dollars' will come in.


If you have something to donate, you can e-mail Matt and Erin Fruits at mefruits@netzero.com to let them know what you have. They have graciously agreed to head up the Youth Auction and would very much appreciate your help in making this a great time for the Youth. The items do not have to be big, IDEAS: used boots, sports items, show clothes, lead ropes, halters, CDs, DVDs, outdoor items, coolers -- be creative and see what you can come up with.


If you would prefer to send real money, Matt and Erin plan on buying auction items with any money they receive. A receipt can be sent for your donation. You will also be able to purchase 'Gathering Dollars' at the Registration table to award youth for jobs well done up to the auction.


Here's an overview of the how the YOUTH GATHERING DOLLARS Auction will work:


YOUTH GATHERING DOLLARS                     


·        Youth receive points for any placings at ILR-SD shows during the 2010 year.

·        Youth receive points for any placings at ILR-SD shows during the 2011 year up to the date of the 2011 International Gathering of Friends and Champions.

·        Each point will be $10.00 in Gathering Dollars. Gathering dollars are NOT real money, but rather “funny money” or “play money”.

·        If a Pot of Gold animal was used in earning those points – the points will be double value.

·        Youth can earn extra Gathering Dollars at the 2011 Gathering event by volunteering to help at the show in various areas and/or exhibitors or visitors can purchase Gathering Dollars at the value to give to youth that they feel are deserving for any reason of receiving those dollars, ie: well mannered, well dressed, helpful, friendly, etc. Ratio for purchase would be – $10.00 will purchase $100 in Gathering dollars.

·        Youth will receive a bonus of $100 Gathering Dollars for each class they enter at the 2011 Gathering event.

·        All youth Gathering Dollars earned up to the time of the event will be in the exhibitor packets at the 2011 Gathering event in June of 2011.

·        Gathering Dollars earned will be for youth to purchase donated items at the YOUTH ONLY AUCTION to be held on Saturday evening at the 2011 International Gathering of Friends and Champions.


Once the 2011 event is over, any dollars not spent by the youth will have to be discarded.  June 20, 2011, will start the new year for accumulation of Gathering Dollars to be used at the 2012 event.
