2014 March Llama Madness Show, Futurity and Sale

The second annual March Llama Madness Show and Sale is scheduled for April 4-5, 2014 at the Michiana Event Center, Howe, IN. This spacious, heated facility is located at the junction of I-80/90 and Indiana Highway 9.  Hotel headquarters will be the Best Western Plus, Howe Inn, located at this exit.

This exciting weekend will include a double ILR Halter Show, a single ILR Performance show, Futurity classes and will culminate with the "Sale of Champions" featuring 25 to 30 outstanding Juveniles - Females up to 18-months and Males up to 12 months.

The focus of this special futurity show and sale will be to provide an opportunity for llama exhibitors to purchase some of the very best young show prospects available in the country. The futurity will feature Suri and Silky classes for Females - 5 months to 18 months of age, Suri and Silky classes for males 5 - 12 months of age,  and a Dam and cria class with either female and male crias from 1 month to 6 months of age. Futurity classes will be held on Friday evening, and will be eligible for special futurity premiums. All of the llamas from the futurity will be featured in a special “Sale of Champions” on Saturday, April 5. 

We will be adding a new division - Best Uniform (Walking Fiber). In addition, we are adding two new classes, a 3-on-3 Tournament, your three "best" llamas, any age, any sex. They will compete in a double elimination bracket-type format. We also want to take time to honor and recongonize older males in a Hall of Fame class. Production records will need to be summited and that score will be added to the judges placing to determine our Hall of Fame winner. Males need to be seven years old and older.

Our performance classes will be under the careful guidance of the Equipment Manager, George Clements from WI.  He has been working on the classes since the start of  2014. We are excited to have him on board.  He is perfect for this task as he has been working very hard to make all events basketball related, yet safe for exhibitor and llama.
