Registering for the 2021 A-OK Alpaca Blast-Off Show
Navigate in your browser to the link above, or click here: Alpaca Show Registration System (alpacareg.com) [This is the same registration website for all Shows certified by AOA. It is privately owned and is not operated by AOA or A-OK.]
Some key considerations…
- Before beginning Registration, you will want to be well versed with the 2021 Show System Handbook which can be read online in PDF format after you sign in. Navigate to Home/Competitions/Certified Alpaca Shows/Show System Handbook & Resources/2021 AOA Show System Handbook. It is especially important to read this information so that you will conform to all AOA Show requirements.
- Next, be sure to have your original Registry Certificates for each Alpaca; the holographic seal on the form must be from the original. These Certificates must be scanned (or an image otherwise captured) and electronically uploaded in the Registration for each Alpaca or Fleece. Our Show Superintendent, Judy Schroeder, is available for help at: Show.Super.Schroeder@gmail.com, or 540-797-1985 if needed.
- Also, a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection [CVI] (commonly called a Health Certificate) is required. You MUST obtain this CVI from your Veterinarian no earlier than 30 days before the end of the show date. You will keep the original copy when you arrive at the show, and you must provide a photocopy to give to A-OK at the initial check-in stop. You will not be granted entrance into the show without a copy of this form when you arrive!
- Your CVI should contain:
- Your Name and Address as the originator/consignor
- The destination: 500 E Choctaw Ave, Chickasha OK 73018
- The date that the CVI was issued— no earlier than 30 days before the end of the show date
- Each Alpaca’s Microchip/Ear Tag ID#, Registration #, Name, Age, Sex, Breed, BVDV Test Type & Result, BVDV Test Date, and BVDV Test Barcode/Accession Number
- Your CVI should contain:
- If you are transporting Alpacas across state lines to come to the A-OK Show be sure to fully informed about your state’s and interstate transport laws that apply to your travel—both coming and going.
- Youth Performance Entries can compete for the Performance Champion Award in each age category IF the contestant participates in all three events: Showmanship, Obstacle, and Public Relations.
