First Day at the Convention in Harrisburg
The theme decoration at the entrance.
Courtesy booth at the front.
The coops are nicely set up, but the majority of the rabbits are yet to be checked in.

Regular Show Carriers Being Stored
Since I show one to three weekends a month, most of my regular show carriers are cleaned immediately after the show then stored in my van.

There were debates about what to call these squirrels: "Canadian" flying squirrel, North American Hybrid Flying Squirrel, Central flying squirrel, Glaucomys vobrinus, Can-Am flying squirrel, ...
