I've just gotten the chance to check out the "West Coast Classic" website. The WCC is going to be a multiple opportunity rabbit show and learning experience from April 24th-26th in Monterey, California.
Now that I've looked into it, this is something I absolutely HAVE to attend! There will be several All-Breed rabbit shows, along with several specialty breed shows and even Beveren and Mini Lop nationals! There will be a judges conference held, and many youth activities. I love see that the judges are out-of-state! This is exciting to most rabbit breeders and exhibitors who show on a regular basis. It's a chance to receive and new opinion on your stock to value. Types are styled differently all over the nation. What may be a garbage type rabbit to me may be treasure to another breeder in another state! Judges may be impressed or discouraged. It's nice to see a new face and hear new opinions or confirm opinions of other judges, than having the same rabbit judged by the same judge 2-3 times that year!
High Flying Fuzzies is holding double open specialty shows. I think this means we get to show our fuzzies five times in one weekend! Wowza!
I'm considering entering some of the youth contests. It has been a good while since I have done any youth contests, and though sometimes I don't do well I still enjoy to do them. :) I'm a little nervous thinking of it... but hey, I better start prepping now cause I will most likely have several this year! (If I follow through and do them. I always happen to be sick on show days... lol.)
Anyways! The website, check it out attending or now, California or New York, it is still really cool!
Sounds like my friends will all be going! I think its going to be a great turn out. :)
Hope to see you there!
