The Berwick Show was held on Saturday 23rd Feb, under brilliant sunshine and a cool breeze – perfect weather for an Alpaca Show.
There was a great turnout of exhibitors for the first show of the new year, with over 100 alpacas competing and over 30 fleeces. Thank-you to all members from the Central and Eastern regions who supported Berwick this year, the level of competition was high and we sincerely hope you enjoyed your involvement.
Our judge Adrienne Clarke and Apprentice Judge Taryan Mathews did a great job getting through all the entries, providing a detailed commentary on their findings.
We wish to acknowledge the Berwick Show Society who each year provide their support, hospitality and facilities to hold this alpaca competition – in particular Margaret, Denise, Willem and Andy, you are all so efficient and great people to work with- thank-you.
It was Nic and my second year in running the show. It does however takes many more than two people to run an alpaca show and I would like to take this opportunity to thank the following enthusiastic and capable volunteers. Your contribution to the show was outstanding and Nic and I are very grateful for your support as I am sure all who competed are as well.
