Holding off on doing my reporting for the end of the week until tonight and then will do a final on Monday or Tuesday ( since I am known to post after midnight)Feel free to start reporting your end of month goal outcomes or you can wait until Monday if you want every last opportunity to meet your goal.
@sweetpeama we don't seem to have any others takers for August yet ... Would you like to start it and I am sure one of us will jump in for those days you are away? Just give us a heads up again of the dates you are away...
The days that I am going to be in and out are Aug 7 this day I can post but it might be later in the day as my girls have project judging in the morning so we have to be 30 minutes away at 9:15 for check in at 9:30 with judging at 10. Depending on what time we get done we could catch the lunch hour traffic coming back home so it could be a bit longer. Their session ends at 2 ( we better be done before that as I don't want to hang around until the evening session at 5) so the latest I would post would be around 3 my time ( I am an hour ahead of DLR time and 2 hours behind WDW time). Hopefully we can get most of their stuff loaded the night before ( DH is being told he has to take the car to work that Sunday night so we can) with the exception of the clothing exhibits which I would like to keep nice on their hangers. At least they don't have food projects ( well they do have their bunny treats which they can put in a glass jar for storage). I hope it goes fast-9 year old has 4 tables to go to and 12 year old has 6 that I can think of unless they combine the sewing and needlework ones ( which for the morning session I doubt they will). A lot is going to depend on how long the lines are, how many actual tables they have for each area and if I can park my self at a spot right on the edge where the kids can have their stuff that is not being judged at the moment instead of being on the other end down by the bathrooms.
Judging is in the building that says Yellowstone Downs (google maps is not accurate as the racing was actually in the narrow building right next to the track) with the actual judging in the part that looks like a square was added on. Just to the top of the square is a set of doors and the part that would be long and fairly thin to the missing square makes up the offices, concession stands, cleaning supplies closets, bathrooms which that set is at the far end so I can hopefully be down that area just a little bit. ( If you switch views you can see the doors easier. The walk that looks like it just runs into the building above there is where the bathrooms connect in the back through the locker/changing rooms which are locked when not in use).
The other days I know for sure are the 12th and 13th as we have animals down there that day as well as shows ( technically 12 year old shows on the 12th but we have keeping the aisles neat duty on the 13th as well as a fashion show. The 19th is another one that I know for sure since it is awards ceremony in the morning. The rest of the week all the stuff we have for sure is later in the day, what is going to factor in is if 12 year old places high enough to do the round robin for showmanship on the 18th or if she has an over all Grand or Reserve champion then they stay all week and we have to be down to feed and water. the 20th is pick up the non animal displays and getting some rest from a tired week.
Thing said by Exhibitor parents
Did you check water
Are your pens/cages/stalls clean
Did you sweep the aisles
