2014 Rules and Entry form - newer Microsoft Word version

For those of you that have an older version of Microsoft Word and are unable to open the above rules and entry form link here is an "old school" version of the Rules and Entry form for you to open.

This year the forms are in word format so you can type on them and print them off or preferably save them after typing and then email to me so I can capture the info off them to save me the time it takes to retype everything.  Thank you!

Friendly but important reminders:
**Check in times
Animals may arrive for check in between 6pm and 11pm on Friday, June 13, 2014 and again starting at 6am on Saturday June 14. Animals must be in place by 7:30am on Saturday, June 14, 2014 this included being checked in and will be released at the conclusion of both rings or early release by permission of the show chairperson.

**Health papers
Health papers are not required for South Dakota goats but they are required for out of state animals per SD health requirements (please scroll down just a little bit to see the live link to the state's requirements)  SD does not require any testing just a permit number that your vet obtains.

**Check in committee
All animals will be inspected as they are unloaded by a member of the inspection crew.  They will have the authority to dismiss an entire herd from the show based on their findings.  Please respect the health and safety of the other herds that attend and do not bring sick or infected animals. 
Things such as (but not limited to) ringworm, abscesses, or sore mouth will not be allowed due to their contagious nature.

Here is a link to a map of the fairgrounds.  The 4-H complex building is straight North of Gate 2 and Gate 3.  You can use Gate 8 to enter the fairgrounds for the show since 3rd Street will be closed off due to the outdoor expo also going on this weekend.
