General Information

Paul Garland has accepted our invitation to judge at Egmont A&P Show 2017.  We are expecting another strong line-up of exhibitors from Hawkes Bay, Manawatu, King Country, Waikato and of course Taranaki.  This year the showgrounds will be open to the public on Friday and Saturday.  Fleece judging will be held on Friday and breed judging on Saturday. 

Pens will be set up in the TSB Arena (same as 2016).  Alpacas can be penned anytime on Friday afternoon, but preferably after 5pm to avoid traffic congestion. 

Penning deadline is expected to be 9.30 am on Saturday, allowing same-day travel from Manawatu and King Country.

Mike Banks from Shearpac has undertaken to provide a shearer on Saturday afternoonafter the conclusion of the show, for those exhibitors who choose to use this service.  Prior notification to convenor and/or Shearpac is necessary for planning. 

The Hawera alpaca show is developing a reputation for being friendly and convivial. Exhibitors vary in experience from beginners through to seasoned veterans, all wanting to have a relaxed, stress-free and enjoyable day spent in the company of fellow breeders and their agreeable alpacas.

A warm welcome awaits you at Hawera!!
