With the majority or the Regional Agricultural shows now finished I hope members enjoyed the shows they were able to attend. Congratulations to all those that were successful.
At the committee meeting held on 20th March two additional members were co-opted onto the committee. They are Odette Mayne and Tanya Boston. Both members are keen to take an active role in Regional activities so look out for more details about them in the next edition of “All About Alpacas”, due out in mid June. Welcome on board Odette and Tanya.
Most of you would have seen the information come out about NAW from the AAA office a couple of weeks ago. If you missed the deadline to get your information into the AAA office, you still have the opportunity to get your opening details onto our Regional site. All you need to do is fill out the same paperwork and get it back to Angela Smith by 12.4.13. Please make sure you complete all the details, particularly Insurance details to ensure you get on the list. There is NO COST for this regional listing - so get your open day information to the committee.
Please mark your diary for Sunday 28th April. This will be the date for the next Southern Region General meeting. This will be an opportunity to get details on what is happening in our region, and at the National level. It is also the opportunity for you to have some input into the activities of your committee. Please try to get along to your Regional meeting this weekend.
