So there is a new online form which seems to be easier to use.  Check it out at www.greatestferretshowonearth.info.

We are still looking for sponsors, raffle items, and registrations for the show.  

Our show book is done differently than most shows, too - ours are FREE!!!  We give them out to every attendee.  After the show, extras are given to local vets who hand them out to new clients and leave them for display in their lobbies.  Visitors to the shelter also get copies of the show book. After the show, the digital form of the show book is posted on the show website.  So, what makes this show book unique is that your advertisements will be seen by more than just show goers who pay for the book.  If you pay for a full page ad (a great value at $45) you also can have items available for show goers to pick up (a catalog, a sample?)


Information on sponsorship, advertising, and donations can be found at the website:  www.greatestferretshowonearth.info.

The judging will start at either 9AM or 9:30 depending on the number of entries.

For the public, the hall will be open at 9AM for shopping and raffle.  The show usually ends around 5PM, but that is based on the number of entries.

Anyone coming out to Chicago?  I am thinking of setting a time for a Ferret.Com Forum Meet-up.  My hubby and I will be running the show (and wearing kiwi green shirts to prove it), but it looks like there will be a general break around 12:30 from judging.

We can meet in the lounge (yes our show hall as a fully stocked bar) around 12:30 and meet each other face to face.

If you are coming, post on this thread, and maybe I'll get special name tags or something for us to wear.  (I just need to know how many to buy)
