    Hosted by Pacific Northwest Lionhead Rabbit Club

    Please read all rules carefully.  There are many items that are different than years’ past.  This show allows noncooped sale animals in the building at no charge.  It is important to READ EVERYTHING CAREFULLY so you are in the “know.”

    1)  Showroom is open to receive animals on Friday, April 8, 2016 between noon and 8p.m.  West Coast Classic personnel has asked that we try to have all animals for the National Show in place by 6:00p.m.  Showroom closes for the evening promptly at 8:00p.m on Friday evening.  If you run into an issue, please contact Cheryl.  360-531-0679.

    2)  Showroom opens at 7a.m. Saturday morning.  The show begins at 8:30a.m.

    3)  All animals entered in the National Show must be cooped.

    4)  There is a dock for loading and unloading.

    5)  Sale animals and animals not entered in the National Show will be kept in your carriers just like we would do for a regular local show.  Sale animals MAY be entered in the show if you’d like them cooped for the weekend.

    6)  Animals for sale are allowed in the building at no entry fee as long as they are not crossing either the National Show tables or any of the West Coast Classic show tables.

    7)  Only Lionheads entered in the NALRC National Specialty Show will be provided coops.  Each exhibitor is responsible for a riser for each animal cooped.  All other rabbits will be held in your own carriers.  Shavings are provided for all cooped animals.

    8)  Carrier set up is at your own discretion.  You may bring saw horses or tables to put carriers on.  You may bring signs and a personal chair.

    9)  Eligible PNWLRC entries:

        d. ALL Other Varieties will compete for the Best of the Rest, Best of Variety, Best Opposite of Variety, Best Variety Display, and PrideLands Pick Contest.  This means ALL varieties, not just COD varieties.  PNWLRC is accepting all varieties for the Exhibition Show this year.

    10)  No Smoking allowed inside the Convention Hall.

    19)  Remark cards will be used.  The club will not mail or ship awards, ribbons or remark cards.  Exit packets with remark cards and ribbons will be ready for pick up after the show on Saturday as soon as the secretary can input all data.  Picking up these packets is each exhibitor’s responsibility.
