Thank you SableSteel and Random Rabbit for explaining the sales situition in more depth! I actually bought a rabbit from convention last year. I payed for the rabbit, entry fee and transportation, the seller and transporter took care of the little details.

And the booths have a competition for best decorations, so they go all out with (mostly) rabbit related decor. The history booth is a good one to visit too; they usually have historical stuff out for people to look at, which is one of my favorite things to see. Speaking of booths, if you want to buy official merchandise for this convention, like a shirt or a patch, go on the the first day; they sell out quickly. Plenty of vendors have booths too, and you can buy pretty much anything and everything rabbit related at convention.

I'm going as a spectator! Unfortunately don't have anything to show because I lost all my stock a couple years ago and just this week got a new starter herd for showing. I think I'm going the first day, to try and scope out any sales rabbits and maybe get a t-shirt.
Hopefully by the next one thats close by (I'm an hour or so from Indy) I'll have plenty to enter.

If anyone wants to meet up I'd love to meet some RT members!

Sorry to hear about you stock :( I *might* see you there, but there will be a lot of people and a lot of stuff going on... And just out of curiosity, what breed do you have?

Somewhere , here on Rabbit Talk, is a post with a name tag that could be printed out to help identify RT members at large gatherings.
I do think i might have spotted someone wearing one, at one of the big shows. ( but i could not get close to them in the crowd to be certain)

Here it is :) :

I need to start wearing those tags at shows. That would be fun. I'd completely forgotten about them. Maybe tape one to my sales board.

I've had to change my plans for Indy. I wanted to go, but, I'm changing gears a little bit. Plus, the couple I really wanted to show just won't be in coat.... so.... next year Massachusetts baby!

Sorry to hear you had to change plans. I don't think I will be in Massachusetts. But maybe I'll post pics this time, and you can post pics next time?

I breed Rex, and focus on the Sable variety. I'm hoping to get them back up and more interested people showing them. They're numbers are so low.

I don't think I have ever seen a Sable rex before... They sound really neat looking :)

I wouldn't mind going, but I'm definitely outclassed in Indy. As it is, I think I'll enter the Ohio State New Zealand RBA show in 2018 with my next generation. The first time I showed at OSNZBRA I placed middle of the road (which was about where I thought I was)--but it was rather like taking your backyard Thoroughbred to the Kentucky Derby; don't expect to place high!!!

I got my Beverens from someone with tan Belgians. I don't care for the standards much, but every time I see the tans I have to continually tell myself all the reasons why I can't get Belgian Hares. Yet... ;)

I am coming, in fact we are on the road right now.

I will have a booth for my Critterz Chewzit toys, so if any RT'ers want a convenient place to visit, stop on by!
