Since posting the schedule yesterday, multiple people have asked questions. It is really good to know that many of you are reviewing the schedule early! This will help keep the shows on a good pace. The schedules have gone to the printer so no corrections to the print can be made at this time. If you have questions, please rest assured that each judge will review the schedule with their clerks and if there are any problems, announcements of corrections will be made at the show.
We have two schedule coordinators who will monitor each ring to keep the shows moving according to the schedule. They will address any problems with the schedule during the show. The schedule coordinators are Loretta Baugh and Melanie Morgan. Thank you to Cheryl Coleman for writing the schedule!
For those of you that want to prepare in advance, you can find the schedules here.
