2014 NASSA AGM BASIC INFORMATION
Join us in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina October 23-26 for beautiful fall foliage, opportunities to showcase your sheep and talks about our breed of sheep at the 2014 NASSA Annual General Meeting. The meeting will be held in conjunction with the Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair (SAFF, http://saffsite.org/) Plan on arriving early to take advantage of the fiber arts sales arena, classes and workshops offered through SAFF. Those of you flying in should note that the Asheville Regional Airport is practically across the street from the WNC Agricultural Center. Entrance to the grounds is free for livestock exhibitors. All others will be required to pay a $3 per person daily entrance fee. Youth under the age of 13 years are free.
AGM Youth Photo Contest
Shetland enthusiasts under age 18 who will register for the NASSA AGM are invited to participate in a photo contest. Each youth may enter two photos. Winners will be announced and their photos displayed during the AGM. To enter, use the AGM Youth Photo Contest Entry Form.
Call for donations!
A silent auction will be held during the 2014 AGM to raise funds to help with AGM expenses. Your donated items are needed! Any sheep-related items will be gratefully accepted: supplies, feed, books, pictures, note-cards, roving, yarn, handmade items, or crafts. What unique auction item might you provide?
While donated items can be brought to the AGM, a picture of the items being donated along with a description, value, and donor/farm name are needed in advance to make a brochure featuring each item for the silent auction.
Please email this information to Christine Dotson at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 1, 2014.
If you wish to mail your item, send to Christine Dotson at 618 Hidaway Cove, Hendersonville , NC 28739. Please post by October 1 to ensure delivery before the AGM.
