From Nicole Miller: Update to Specialty site information:

We have been able to move our reservation to the Show Building (large, covered concrete pad, open air) for our ring and the dairy/beef barn  (hard pack dirt with a paved center aisle) right next to it for optional grooming (W/ELECTRIC included!!)  The bathroom building is right in front.  Open grass areas around the two buildings will still be available to anyone who wishes to distance more.  10×10 grooming spaces will be laid out in the barn with with every other space empty.  Unloading can be done from either end of the grooming barn.  See site map below. 

Due to changes in operating rules at the Fair Grounds parking on the infield is no longer allowed (for any events, not just ours) so once you have unloaded please move your vehicle to the regular parking area.  RVs are the only vehicles allowed on the grass and we have been given specific instructions on where they must be placed.  Don’t worry its just as close to the ring as the grooming spaces.

We still need a grooming/RV reservation form from everyone who will need a spot so we can properly layout the area and make sure everyone is accommodated. (Form is in Premium List and will be emailed to everyone later, as well.) 

Signage will be posted for areas where a face covering is required by state, local or AKC rules
