Alpaca Shows and Events
The Midlands Halter Championship Show, Saturday 11th November, 2017
We are very proud to be hosting the inaugural Midlands Halter Championship Show on Saturday 11th November.
This is a British Alpaca Society afiliated show which we hope will prove immensely popular with Alpaca Breeders / Exhibitors from across the UK on an annual basis. The show is being held in The Avon Hall, Three Counties Show Ground, Malvern, Worcestershire.
Entries are now closed and we are delighted to confirm that 140 Alpacas will be exhibited ....we are looking forward to welcoming our friends and colleagues, old and new, to the Three Counties for this new show on the WSAG / BAS calendar.
West Shires Alpaca Group - Events Scheduled for 2017
An early alert so that you can place these dates in your diary. It would be really good to see as many members as possible at some or all of these events. Importantly, if you have any Alpaca friends that reside in Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire or Shropshire that aren’t currently members of the Group please bring our events programme to their attention and invite them along. Membership of the Group is not necessarily a prerequisite to join us on these occasions!

It would be great to see you all at the AGM, we have a guest speaker, Sue Thomas, addressing the subject of Parasites! …”The good, the bad and the deadly”….

And now for some really exciting news! The West Shires Alpaca Group have decided to host a further annual show in addition to the Royal Three Counties Show in June. This will take place at The Three Counties Show Ground, Malvern on Saturday 11th November. It will comprise a Halter Show but not a Fleece Show. The event will take place indoors. The facilities at the show ground are really good…we will be running the show in a vast building with good heating etc….the animals and exhibitors will forget the fact that it is November outside! As I am sure you will appreciate we are very much in planning mode for this one and will provide full details as soon as possible. But, for the diary:-
Saturday 11th November 2017. The Midlands Alpaca Halter Championship (organised and hosted by WSAG). Three Counties Show Ground, Malvern.
We would like to stress that all of the above events are open to non members of WSAG so if you are aware of anybody with an interest in Alpaca but not currently a member please invite them along. It would be appreciated if you could let the host of the event know that you have done so in order to ensure we know how many people to expect at each event.
Any ‘non member’ attending the AGM on Saturday 6th May would not have voting rights.
