I was going through my show cattalog for convention this year and found out that they are goign to be having a rabbit hopping competition/Exhibition. This is the first year they have done this! If you are into the rabbit hopping, and this is something you want to do, this maybe a good thing to go and watch. The bad part is that it is durring school.
November 1st starting at 8:00 AM
Competition is available to OPEN & YOUTH
Pre-Entry only! No online Entries!
Courses available this year at ARBA Nationals
Beginner: Straight Line Course
Intermediate: Easy Class
*Competitors must have a valid ARBA Membership.*
*Entry fee is $14.00 per Hopping Rabbit*
*Each Rabbit must have a legible tattoo in its left year for identification purposes*
*Exhibition hopping rabbits will not be allowed to be SOLD, under any cercumstances*
*Rules and guidelines are posted on the website: http://racetoindy.com/*
*I wish we had our kids rabbits hopping for this event, but I do not think any of our hopping rabbits are ready to compete. I do think that this is something you will want to watch if you are training a rabbit for hopping. This year convention is in Indianapolis, Indiana. I will be there for the whole convention so I can help kids if they would like to go. If you would like more information I can get it to you.*

Camp Kidwell's Festaval of Trees- We can decorate a christmas tree and the winner gets money.
Auction Donations- go around to diffrent busineses and ask for donations for the youth council auction in April.
Bags made out of feed bags- We would need to save the plastic feed bags that rabbit feed can come in and make everyday bags out of them.
Pig in the Blankets- We could take orders for pig in the blankets and spend a day making them. We did this for Allison's trip to China and she made quite a bit of money.
Memory Boards- Kim collected some boards that we could put fabric over or leave them the way they are. These are to put pictures and stuff in.
*Our goal right now is to get things collected for the auction. Last year we made about $367 from the donations we got, but all this money was used for the whole club even though the rabbit kids are the ones who went around and got donations. This year what ever the rabbit kids get collected the money will go to the rabbit kids.*
*I have started to work on our camp kidwell tree, I have rabbit molds that I have been making plaster rabbits out of. I figured we could have a meeting and the kids could paint them all and we could use them as the ornaments for the tree. We would like to find or make Carrot christmas tree lights. For the star we could use a rabbit stuffed animal. If you have any ideas for the tree feel free to let me know.*
