were welcomed as we
arrived at the show site
cooping was very light. The Lionheads were near a large door opening from the
main doors so a lot of folks traveled through and looked at our beautiful rabbits.
Lionheads were cooped so that the cages made a turn around the endcap of the isle.
One exhibitor set up a grooming table at the end of the Lionhead cooping and others
set up chairs - all of which everyone used during the week.
worked hard to keep the
Lionhead cooping looking nice.
Abby Gibbons MN
was a big help
the front entrance you entered
hall that held the breed booths.
The first door to the right entered
cooping/show hall with the Lionhead
coops right as you entered.
club booth was located to the back
of the breed booth hall but it seemed
located us just fine.
