Sweepstakes is in ring 9 at 8:30 am and the breed is being judged (same ring) at 10 am, so the meeting will follow it at 12:30 at The Tack Room. We will try to get a table outside so everyone can sit together. This is a “buy your own food/drink” meeting. Once the business is completed, we will be able to socialize! For those who have not been, The Tack Room is across the driveway north of the showgrounds. It is right by the handicapped parking area. The food is good and not too pricey and we always have a really nice time. Hope to see everyone there!
