Double Open, Double Youth Show
The Illinois Rabbit Breeders will be hosting a double open, double youth show
that weekend at the same site which would give you the chance to show 3
times. The IRBA show is a 2 day show.
The contact for the IRBA show is Dick Gehr. He can be reached at
firstname.lastname@example.org. If you plan to bring other breeds to show in the IRBA
show and wish to coop them, there is a fee of $1.50 for each coop and you will
need to reserve coops in advance. There is a flyer for this show on the ARBA
web site and also at the Illinois Rabbit Breeders web site explaining the
procedure for making an entry and reserving coops. The Florida White National
Show will also be held at the same site on the same day. For those who raise
both breeds this is an opportunity to take in 2 breed nationals in one trip.
