AGS Member Comments on the Show

It's awesome to be back from the Show. I'm very proud of Titan, Goldenrod, and Marble. They had some strong competition at the show, which is always exciting. This was also my first show as a probationary judge, and I learned a lot. Thank you Libby, Amy and Kaylee for being such great teachers. It was great to see everyone! Its a shame we had to bail out early, but we did make good time getting back home. All the gerbils are safely back in their cages! 10-17-2011 KJ

Had a wonderful time, it was great to see everyone & the gerbils were awesome as always! -Amy 10/17/2011

We had a wonderful show in Omaha, beautifully executed by Michele and Cory. A hundred beautiful gerbils and lots of old and new friends. Off to the airport and back to the kennel! -Libby 10/16/2011

Im still traveling south east so I ll post the results when I get settled again at my winter home! right now im in Missouri. As always, it takes EVERYONE to support our shows..from Libby and Amy flying in to judge, to local support from our show coordinators Cory and Michele and our local Judge Kylee, to those who drove cross country with all the NE gerbils on a LONG overnight haul back and forth cross country (thank you so much Rebecca and KJ!). Thank you also to Linette and Dani and patrick and diane.....as always everyone pitches in from health inspections and moving tanks, to judging (and training new judges) to those who manned the desk, helped us clean up, man the front desk and greet the public and our ?three? reporters!!!!  And of course to Judi and Donna who could not join us but sent some competition" anyway!!! Hope I didnt miss anyone! See yall at the NE show!! -J   10/17/2011
