Hello from Region 5

This is Regional 5 Director Bev Strong saying hello from Iowa Show. This year we go in on Thursday and by the fairs request we will be dismissed on Sunday. This is good for our breed as the weekends are very busy and a lot of people have requested  to see us. So we go in anytime after midnight Wednesday and have to be in place by noon Thursday the 19th of August. I have made arrangement for tieouts for  Wednesday night . We are having a Pasta Gathering at 7:00 PM Thursday night for everyone to meet and welcome our new exhibitors and friends.  Even if you are not showing  we welcome all.    Our  Open show will be Friday at 2:00. We will open our show with our Celebrity Baby Bull Show. This year we have several new showmen. We even have Sophia from the Des Moines Register that had so much fun last year wanted to try again. We will be in Cattle barn this year and will show in new Open Arena . All attending enter in Gate 6.  I have been told by the Junior President there is a new class for Junior Heifers.  These are heifer born 1-1-09 and later.  The deadline for Entry is July 1,2010.
