The Show Season Starts Here

The Show season is on us with a bang having had the National Show at Telford in March, Alpaca Showtime at Houghton Hall last weekend and the NWAG Show at Carlisle next Saturday. NEBAG members have supported all shows so far despite the distances and have all done well with their alpacas. We look forward to seeing many of you at Carlisle this weekend.
Entries are now open for the Northumberland County Show at Bywell on 26 May. As we were oversubscribed last year we have successfully requested a larger marquee and have increased capacity this year. Nevertheless I suggest you get your entries sorted out early to avoid any disappointment. For those travelling distances there are facilities to arrive on the Sunday and camp on the site. There is plenty of B and B accommodation available but again book early if possible.
Members have in recent years had the opportunity to sell alpaca knitting, goods and yarn on a stall in the marquee. In order to accommodate more alpacas in the tent we will be purchasing a 3m x 3m tent for the shop which will be located adjacent the alpaca marquee and ring. Although slightly more difficult to supervise it will be much more accessible and visible to the public to demonstrate the superb quality and range of products available. This will be provided by NEBAG and will be available for members use at other events in the future. The stall will also be used to promote NEBAG and hopefully we will have a new leaflet available by then.
