The dates of the 2016 Flock & Fiber Festival ILR Llama Show and Western Championship are the 24th and 25th of September.

SCHEDULE for 2016 Show - On Saturday we will judge fleece-on and shorn fiber and run the performance classes (double show for the first time!), and on Sunday the double halter show will be run.

We had a reasonable turn-out of kids for the youth classes last year but we have space for more! Let you llama friends know about the show and arrange your schedule to be in Canby the last weekend of September. We love the energy a barn full of kids brings to the show so start planning now and get out on the obstacles with your llama!

Our llama show is bringing in three judges for the weekend. On Saturday, Joy Bishop-Forshey from Wauseon, OH, will evaluate shorn fleeces and entries in the fleece-on classes. There will also be an area for you to offer llama fleeces for sale to the public.

Also on Saturday, performance classes will be judged by Maryan Baker from Riverside, CA, and Bob Wooldridge from Battle Ground, WA.

On Sunday, Joy and Maryan will team up and both judge halter classes for our double halter show.

The Western Championship is back thanks to Debby Gremmels and her group of volunteers! They are organizing a dinner for Saturday night, $15.75 for adults and $8 for kids under 18. If you want to attend the dinner, contact Debby (debbygremmels@gmail.com or 541-nine oh eight-3033) and send her a check with the number of dinners. Postmark deadline is 9/15. Her address is Seven oh seven five NW Mountain View Dr, Corvallis, OR 97330.

NEW REQUIREMENTS to have a "sale stall." If you purchase a "sale stall" for one or more animals, you are classified as an OFFF vendor and all vendors must carry liability insurance. Coverage should be for $1 million and name Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival and its Festival Planning Committee as additional insured. Also, such insurance afforded the additional insured is primary and non-contributing with any other insurance the additional insured may carry. The address for the festival is: Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival, 30881 SE Bald Peak Rd, Hillsboro, OR 97123. The show superintendent needs this form WHEN YOU REGISTER for the sale stall - that is, before you get to the fairgrounds. My mailing address is 3410 NW 60th St, Corvallis, OR 97330.

Here is the show packet for download, here is a Word version, and if the paging is messed up in that version, please down load the PDF Version.

2 Sept UPDATE: The OFFF show is now live on ShowManager and I believe you will be able to find all the classes and services. Unfortunately, there are some things that I can’t reconcile and the ILR Invoice $ total will be incorrect.

First, ShowManager is not handling that halter and performance are double shows and fleece is a single show – the ILR per animal fee charged for halter and performance animals will be wrong.

Second, if you are entering an animal’s bagged fleece and also entering them for a fleece-on evaluation, ShowManager will charge you for two separate fleece classes rather than the “fleece package.”

Third, if you want an animal to compete for the Versatility Award (and they are in a halter class, fleece class, and at least one performance class), look for class #99 – ShowManager labeled it as “Composite” and I can’t change the name.

I’m sorry that I was not able to get SM to roll over and play dead. If you use the Registration Summary Form from the packet and count all your classes carefully, you will have an accurate total. I will have accurate invoices for you when you check in at the show. See you soon! Hal

You are now able to REGISTER ONLINE for the show, this link will get you to the ILR Calendar of Events, scroll down to the 24th and 25th of September to find the Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival and click on the "Register for this Event" button. If you have questions, please contact Hal.

  • ILR forms for entering shorn fleeces to be judged. These are required for shorn fleece entries.
  • Information about shorn fleece and coat-on/fleece-on fiber types including the "do's" and "dont's" of fiber preparation for ILR judging.
  • As always, my thanks to Brandy Chastain, the Festival Organizer, and the OFFF Board for their support of our show and the Best of Show Diamond Awards - you all are great to work with and thanks for including the llamas in the Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival !
