California State Convention Showroom Scenes at Turlock

This is the first year that the open show and the youth show each has a large building.  In the past, the showroom was so crowded that the tension was high.   This is the open show building, it's still quite crowded as shown in the photo.

Betty and Carol G's Angoras found a little quiet corner.


The youth show building is not as crowded as the open show building but still a very good number of exhibitors.   The food service is located here so most open and youth exhibitors come by to visit.
