Dear AOA Members:

What a show!

I am humbled and grateful for all of you who traveled from near and far to experience the 30th Anniversary AOA National Show sponsored by Fun in the Country Alpacas. Despite closing to the public and everything else that came with the threat of Coronavirus, we were able to award eight beautiful Supreme Championships to eight truly amazing alpacas and the Breeder’s Cup to six farms!

The Meet & Greet served up a whole lot of memories in addition to delicious food and 1990's-themed cocktails. And let’s not forget the laughter, support, and new memories made at the Annual Banquet and Auction.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff, I cannot begin to appropriately thank everyone enough, who supported this event. We are so grateful to all that participated, attended, donated, volunteered, vended, and sponsored the 2020 AOA National Show.

We had so many amazing volunteers show up throughout the weekend. From helping with compliance check to coffee brewing to auction spotters. Whenever we needed help, there were plenty of you who stepped up. Thank you!

Please look over the following list and know how grateful we are to you all. And if I missed anyone, I am so sorry. This was our event coordinator, Alyssa Winterfeld’s and my first show, and we were blown away by your support. Again, thank you.

Here’s to you,

Robin Gifford
Executive Director
