  • All Fleeces being shown at the EAA and NEAOBA Showtacular 2017 must have been shorn AFTER October 26, 2016.
  • Juvenile Fleeces must be 180 Days or 6 months of growth to be eligible. They must have been born on or before April 29th, 2017, and shorn after their 6 month birthday to show at EAA AND NEAOBA Showtacular 2017.

Registration Instructions

Go to the Empire and NEAOBA Showtacular Fleece Show and Halter Registration site at www.alpacareg.com and either create an account or sign in if you already have an account. 

After registering your selected alpacas, print off a copy of each fleece tag and place them with your fleece CUT SIDE OUT in a clear plastic bag of 1 mil thickness or less, approximately 30 gallons. Exhibitors who bring their fleece in a bag which does not comply with this AOA rule will be asked to change their bag(s) during check in. Refer to PART 19. (APPENDIX C) GUIDELINES FOR PREPARATION OF FLEECE FOR SHOWING, which is located on the AOA website. This is very helpful! 

Print and send a copy of:

  • Your completed registration.
  • ARI Certificate for each fleece entered. If your name does not appear on the ARI Certificate, please include an Owner of Record to Show Entry Form. Please ensure the copy of the ARI Certificate is from the original and not a 'Certificate Copy' downloaded from the AOA site.
  • Signed Fleece Show Exhibitor Disclosure Form for TBA. If your alpaca is co-owned and you would like both owners listed in the final results, be sure to include signed disclosures for all owners. Please read the disclosure carefully and check the two appropriate boxes, as the disclosure has changed from previous years.
