WCC Friday Night NWARA Angora Specialty Show at Reno



During the WCC events, Angoras have the chance to be judged 7 times in the three open shows and 4 specialty shows.   For Giant Angora and Satin Angora, there is the "Rare Breed Show", so these two have one additional chance to be judged.

The WCC official opening ceremony is held on Saturday morning, May 6.  Northwest Angora Rabbit Association holds the first Angora specialty show on Friday night in conjunction with several other specialty shows. 

Friday night show is actually the most enjoyable show during WCC.   The showroom is yet to be crowded, everything is nice and clean, people are relaxed, ...


The judge for the NWARA specialty show is Stacy Easton Martin from Ohio.  She is very familiar with Angora, having been judge in previous Angora national show and being voted in as the ARBA convention judge for Angora.

Stacy's husband Joey is a registrar preparing for his judge's test, he observes and writes for Stacy.

All the English Angora are on the table.
