It’s official – National Show and Youth World swap weeks

The schedule in Jackson, Mississippi, for the Youth World Championship Show and the ApHC National Show has been revised to address some issues relating to youth participation. It’s basically a swap of show weeks so that the National Show Open and Non-Pro events will begin on Monday June 22nd. The Youth World Show will be AFTER the National Show. The middle weekend will feature the cattle classes, so the youth-only portion of the show will likely begin on Monday the 29th. Complete show dates are June 22 – July 4.

    THANK YOU, ApHC! I was delighted that all the Youth will be able to attend – due to the swap of dates for the National & Youth World shows. I will forward the GOOD NEWS to our NY Empire Regional Club ASAP!

    I think I accidentally deleted a comment for this post. It basically asked if any consideration was given to non-pro’s and their challenge of getting time off from work and potential new issues created by the switch in dates.

    The answer is yes, the committee very seriously considered the ramifications and acknowledged that any change is likely to create a problem for someone.

    I understand the need for the change, but it would be nice to have a show schedule asap so us non-pro’s (and youth parents) can set up vacation days, etc.
