ShoWorks online registration is now officially open! This year, each exhibitor will need to enroll all their fair entries online. This is very similar to the old triplicate forms many of you remember. All animals must be enrolled in their classes, along with the record books and showmanship classes. All animal entries will be checked against the registration forms. The registration forms that were submitted for animals do not enroll exhibitors in fair. All Still Exhibits, Performing Arts and Demonstration entries will also need to be entered. The deadline for fair entries is June 6. We have computers available at the office for those who do not have access to one at home. We may be able to arrange to meet with a club to assist with entries if needed.
