Fourth Annual ILR-SD
Gathering of Friends and Champions

June 13 – 15, 2014
Iowa State Fairgrounds
Des Moines, IA

The Excitement Continues to Build!

Thanks to the generosity of Wally and Maryan Baker of Riverside, CA
the 2014 Gathering will be awarding Color Champions!

This is another class that’s new to the Gathering. How does it work?

When your Shorn Fleece or your Fleece-On entry is judged it will be assigned to a color group. After judging is complete, the Grand Champion and the Reserve Grand Champion will be determined by the highest scores within each of the color groups and will receive a special award! The color groups that will be used at the Gathering are:

  1. Black/Bay Black

  2. Brown

  3. Fawn

  4. Gray

  5. White/Cream

  6. Multi-Colored

  7. Variegated

Just one more reason to come to the
2014 Gathering!

Our thanks to Wally and Maryan for making these awards available to increase interest and excitement in the Fleece Show!


You can still enter your shorn fleece even if you are not coming to Des Moines! Go to the ShowManager and complete your entry then ship your fleece to our fleece superintendent. The entries must be shipped to arrive no later than June 6, 2014. (Fleece products also!) Ship the fleeces to:
                            Julie Mazac
                            524 W. Ridge Circle
                            River Falls, WI 54022
