How big is the participation for this show likely to be??? Is it a 1 day or 2 day show??? I loved attending the Seattle show and meeting new people in October; the PNW is a lovely area.
I couldn't come last year since I had just had my kidney transplant. I've only ever been to the WI MCBA show for the last 4 years and it's always a great time!!! There's a fare of $178 from Denver showing right now. Any idea on the nearby hotels and their rates???
Entry fees will be $6 for MCBA members, $8 for non-members. An MCBA membership is $25 per year and we will have applications there as well. Baby Derby entries (kits 2 to 4 months old) will be $5, all participants will receive one ticket with paid entry to vote in the derby and the winner will receive a trophy.
No lunch will be provided this year but you may bring your own or there are many restaurants nearby. There is a full kitchen in the lodge as well. We'll break for lunch.
Dakota Tschinderle will also be presenting a short seminar on some of the health issues that have been prevalent lately to give us some answers and courses of action.
Claire will post on show book ads, Alison will take raffle donations. We already have a great donation from Twilight Chinchillas and I will have more fleece tunnels as well. We really have had some of the best raffle items I've ever seen.
MCBA membership is actually $30 per year. It has been for quite some time now. If you need any copies of forms, I would be happy to email them.
Or anyone interested in membership can contact me at [email protected].
Less than one month until show time! If anyone has raffle donations, please be sure to bring them. If you aren't coming but still have something to donate, let me know so we can arrange to get your item to the show.
Raffle items do not have to be chinchilla related. We've had towel/pot holder sets (love mine!), movie night baskets, candy/snack packs, jewelry, quilts, gift cards, and more. Of course, chinchilla items are always welcome...hammocks, ledges, houses, dust, etc.
If anyone has chinchillas they would like to donate for a live animal raffle, let either Sue or I know.
All raffle proceeds support our chapter and future shows!
Christine will also bring some really creative play sets that the chapter will be selling. I will bring some fleece tubes as well for the raffle. It's going to be really an awesome time. Bring your pennies for some great stuff . . .
OKAY . . . only a few days more. Sorry for being so missing in action. My father-in-law passed away two weeks ago and then Easter is a HUGE time for me, since . . . well, it's my job. SO after a brief recovery time, I think I'm ready to go. Hope all of you are well dusted and combed. I will see you all there Saturday morning. Blessings . . .
