Congratulations, on your first show!! I wish you loads of fun!! I will be at the Ragdoll Congress TICA show at the end of April in Oklahoma City.
I believe there was an Arcadia, CA TICA show last month just a few weeks back, they said had a big turn out of Ragdolls of many colors and patterns.
Are you breeding as well as exhibiting?
Good luck and remember to have fun!! There are a few sites out there that help to prepare you, things you want to bring with you. I was lucky my first show, the things that I didn't think of, were ready on hand to be borrowed by most of the exhibitors on Ragdoll Row. Everyone was very nice and helpful, I learned a lot just in my first show, and made a lot of friends, some that I am very close with now.
Be sure to tell us all about it.
Oh, I am not sure how close to Sacramento you may be, but there will be a Ragdoll Congress there the weekend of October 13-14, and Dr. Meurs will be speaking there. It sounds exciting!!
