It’s official! Summer is over and School is in session! Show days are not over though and there are still several more CJLA Sanctioned Shows to attend! Be sure to check out the schedule and make plans to hit the road soon!
FYI – Oktoberfest Boer Goat Show/CJLA Mkt. Goat Show is being held in conjunction with the Northern Exposure Show in Orland on Nov. 9th. Contact Sue Hobby for information on entries, etc.
Check out the POINTS PAGE!! ALL SHOWS THROUGH SURF-N-TURF ARE INCLUDED IN THE POINT TOTALS. If you have earned points at more than 8 shows, your top 8 are posted. Keep in mind that as you attend more than 8 shows, your score can change as lower point shows are dropped and replaced with your higher point shows. If you have questions, please contact me.
Are you getting our CJLA E-mail blasts? In order to reduce the cost of mailing, we are sending you more information by email. Please read them so you know what is going on in the CJLA. This is really important!! We know everyone is bombarded with communications and information but we want to be sure you are involved and can participate in all our activities. We don’t want you to miss out on anything!
As we approach the end of the year, it is time to start fund-raising for the CJLA Award Banquet. It has always been our goal to reward all our members for their achievements in the CJLA and in order to do this; we rely on the generosity and support of our many donors. It is REALLY IMPORTANT that every member do their part to spread the word about the CJLA and ask for support. This organization is for you so please pitch in and see what you can get done. If every member got just one donation, it would be enough to cover the award expenses! Please watch your emails and mailboxes for updates on fund-raising projects and sponsorships.
Items are also needed for the Auction held during the banquet. It is not too early to be thinking of something you can bring or get donated.
The 2014 CJLA Membership Application is now posted. You can join anytime for next year – don’t forget that you must join by the first show you attend in 2014 to start earning points. So if you go to a show in January, you will need to join prior to that for those points to be counted.
We have Paypal set up under the Sponsor section. You can pay your membership fee through PayPal but you will need to print off the application and fax or mail it in so we have all your information.
The 2014 Rules and Regulations are now posted. There has been a change to the English Steer Division Rule. Beginning in 2014, Purebred Red Angus steers will be allowed to be shown in the English Steer Division. They must meet the same requirements as Angus, Hereford, and Shorthorn Steers in that division. Be sure to read the revised Rules for more information.
