Sessions and times are not locked in yet, but you can expect all the following and more:
Dr. Pat Long, long-time camelid vet and a favorite of GALA members
Dr.Pam Walker, another excellent camelid vet
John Mallon, perennial favorite and llama trainer like no other
A Fiber Room that will have some exciting new classes and will offer more “make ‘n take” items – and the time to finish them!
We will again have an ILR-sanctioned Fleece Show (save your best for this)
Plans are being made to have an outdoor “Meet the Camelids” Saturday afternoon where we can highlight all that Camelids Can Do and that will be open to the public with displays and activities and give our members time to catch up with each other after our two year hiatus!
Start collecting your best photos of “Camelids Doing….” for the Photo Contest
Friday night’s after-dinner event will be a showstopper (watch for details here)
Saturday night is, of course, “The Auction”, and we are working to have some really fun items and awesome experiences up for sale. Proceeds go to Camelid Medical Research
Please check back on the website for regular updates as well as notices in the newsletter. We are hoping to make this conference one for the record books – our members deserve it!
