Dear 2016 Tan Nationals Exhibitors,
I have the task of writing you, the exhibitors registered for this upcoming weekend’s Tan National show in Canton Ohio, with unfortunate news. Due to a terrible oversight and miscommunication regarding ARBA sanctions, we have become aware of an issue that prevents the Tan National show from going on as scheduled on Saturday April 16, 2016.
The ARBA Executive Director, Eric Stewart and President, Josh Humphries have been working with Mid-Atlantic Tan Club all weekend, despite the fact that they are both out of town on vacation/work, to try to come to a reasonable solution to aid the National Tan Show so it can still be held. The ATRSC board has been made aware of the circumstances and the path forward that has been decided for the show.
The National Show has been moved to Sunday April 17, 2016 in place of one of the all breed Canton club shows. The second show on Sunday will be an all breed show. There will be NO sanctioned shows on Saturday.
This obviously will present challenges to many of the exhibitors so we need to know ASAP whether you will still attend given this drastic change to what we had hoped and planned for this coming weekend.
If you get this message, please let us know ASAP if you will still attend the National show and secondly if you would still like to coop your entries as we need to let the Canton club know mid week how many coops to setup. There will be additional emails regarding the youth contests and other important topics as soon as we have more information.
We will be calling the exhibitors over the coming days to ensure you got this message and so we can discuss your plans for the weekend.
The pre-entry deadline has passed. Day of show entries are $10/rabbit. Please see the SHOW FLYER for complete national show details, as well as information on the specialty show. *PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SHOW DATE IS NOW SUNDAY AND THE SPECIALTY SHOW IS CANCELLED*
