In light of the increasing government and travel restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the necessity to keep our members safe, the AAA Board has resolved to cancel ALL alpaca shows, be they stand-alone or linked to an Agricultural show, effective immediately until 30 June 2020.
This decision not been taken lightly, and has been made to give some certainty to AAA members over the next 4 months.
We appreciate that the cancellation of shows is a huge disappointment for our showing members and volunteers, however, the safety and well-being of our judges, members and exhibitors is paramount.
We are working together with regions and convenors on entry fee refunds and already expended show costs.
In mid-May the Board will make a further announcement about shows that have been scheduled from 1 July.
Regional meetings and planned training will be at the discretion of regional committees.
We appreciate your understanding and patience as our teams work through the logistics and issues that come with cancelling major events.
