    We got to go to Nationals in 2006 when they were in Indianapolis. We met some online friends and saw the Oberhaslis being judged and picked up some goats from SherrieC.

    This year Nationals are right in our back yard in Louisville. I plan to go and watch the Alpine judging. I'll also be picking up a doe from Becky (Dixie-Does) - Can't wait - I'm so excited! :biggrin

    Who else will be going?

    We go every year regardless of location... if the goats look good. We will be in Louisville. :)

    We are Sara's escort, so we will be leading her there. :biggrin I think it would take her forever if I didn't set the pace. :lol

    Ha, ha Tim!

    Just because I drive the speed limit when pulling a trailer! Shoot if I let Tim set the pace we'd be broke paying for speeding tickets and fuel and not to mention he would get his drivers license taken away because he got too many tickets. Or run us out of diesel... AGAIN! :laughcry

    Yep, Tim, Mary and the girls will be once again escorting me to Nationals. :) Oh, the fun we have and the stories we could tell... ;)

    Autumn,

    If you have a chance, show your girls! Everyone is very nice and it is actually more relaxed than a regular dairy show, because the show is spread out. Anyway, much more fun to show and be a part of it, IMO. (We did the same at Spokane in 2005-got a 2nd in her class, a 10th in her class (yearlings) and a 13th in her class (2 year old). ) Way cool being in the ring with the "big boys"!

    We're going! We can only do exhibition with our Nigerians, but I think it'll be lots of fun. My son will do showmanship with a La Mancha....he was little disappointed that he can't do a Nigie in showmanship.

    I'm coming Thursday to watch junior LM that evening and then the senior LM the next morning. I would like to go to the wine and cheese event Friday night but I don't know yet. I wonder if you have to sign up for that? I have not really looked into that yet. Hope to meet some of you while I'm there. :D

    Kaye, by the time I get there you will be chilled. You have all your showing to do at the first of the week. Course if you win you may still be bouncing off the walls even when I get there :biggrin
    Maybe you better bring something hard Ken. She may need some medicinal alcohol support before it's over with. :rofl

    We are only going for the youth stuff. We found out how expensive it would be to get all of the goats tested and staying down there for the whole week. We planned on sleeping in the barns or putting up a tent...neither is allowed. :down Plus....I want our herd a bit more competitive before we jump into a National show! :crazy Maybe in 2010 when it is in Rochester, MN(right? I think that is were I heard/read it will be).

    Not sure where you are getting your information. I am on the NS committee and I can tell you that sleeping in the barns IS allowed as it always has been.

    Also, the 2010 NS is scheduled to be held in Rochester, Minnesota. However, with the downgrading of Minnesota's TB status that may change.

    Oh, Sara...you know that "rumor" gets circulated every year. No sleeping in the barn...yeah, right! I don't see me hiring a security guard to watch my goats. Besides, they wouldn't do to suit me, anyway. :lol
    A tent I can see being banned...lord, who wants to look down an aisle and see tent city? Not me and it certainly wouldn't be good PR for the public.

    Ha,Ha,Ha,....only if it's sweet tea!!! I'm a 3 beer drunk! Drink 1/2 one, spill one, and take one home...SMASHED. And what goes on at Nationals...doesn't stay at Nationals! :rofl
