* UPDATE – 2020 North American Limousin Regional Shows Cancelled *
Eastern Regional, Grey, Tenn.
Heartland Regional, Council Bluffs, Iowa
Western Regional, Klamath Falls, Ore.
The North American Limousin Junior Association regional shows have been cancelled due to the risk associated with COVID-19 and the current status of host states, in addition to surrounding state participants in regard to opening with federal guidelines to allow large gatherings. The North American Limousin Foundation (NALF) and the North American Limousin Junior Association (NALJA) have concluded that your safety is still our number one priority with these three regional events only a month away.
The decision to cancel the regional shows was a unanimous decision by the NALF board. Safety for our exhibitors and attendees are still our major concern moving forward. NALF will immediately begin to refund all “regional” show entry fees to exhibitors over the upcoming week.
We are still, at this time, moving forward with plans for the National Junior Limousin Show & Congress (NJLSC) to be held in West Monroe, La. The NJLSC will follow the guidelines set forth by the federal government, the state of Louisiana and the city of West Monroe to combat the severity of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
Restrictions and regulations continue to be fluid. Please enter with confidence and be assured that if NJLSC 2020 is cancelled due to COVID-19, that any and all entry fees will be reimbursed as well.
The NALF board is also waiving the late entry fee cost this year due to current circumstances and the fluidity of the situation given COVID-19. The late deadline is May 15 at 11:59 p.m. We will accommodate for those animals sold in the Great American Pie Annual Sale and Hall-Coyote Hills Production Sale. If you purchase an animal in these sales and wish to enter it into the 2020 NJLSC please fill out a paper entry form and mail it to the NALF office. With your entry form, please include a copy of your lot in the sale catalog. The entry deadline for these animals is June 5. Entry fees will be $80.
