Upcoming ERBA Show

Our next rabbit show is right around the corner! On February 4th there is a Rainier and ERBA rabbit show in Enumclaw.  This show is type only, so no need to worry about fit and show. All of the other information is included in the show catalog. A link to that is provided below. If you are planning on going, be sure to register as soon as possible. Hope to see you there!


WSU 4-H Scholarships - Deadline to Apply 3/15/17

Cavy Showmanship 101

Kelsey Creek is new to the cavy project this year - this video is a great resource for the basics of cavy showmanship in preparation for the first show on January 7.  The video was produced by senior cavy 4-Her from Lake County, IL.


Schedule For Upcoming Events

There are quite a few big things coming up in the next few months, so make sure to add them to your calendar!

First, there is an ARBA Rabbit and Cavy show coming up tomorrow (12/3/16) at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds. This is only a type show, meaning that there will be no showmanship. Here is a link to the show catalog:

The next important thing on the horizon is our Monthly Business Meeting at Kelsey Creek Farm on  12/6/16

The following Sunday will be the Poultry/Woodworking Project Meeting at the Rice home (12/11/16).

We also have our very exciting Year End Party to celebrate the 2015-16 4-H year at the Bartlett home on 12/17/16 from 2-5 pm.

Next, we have our Monthly Project Meeting where we will be practicing Fit and Show on 12/20/16 at 7 pm. 

Last, but certainly not least, there is a Snohomish County 4-H Rabbit and Cavy show at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe on January 7, 2017.  Vet check starts at 7:30, the show begins at 9am.  The show will take place in the Livestock Pavilion.

All of these events have been added to the website calendar as well . We hope that you can consider participating in as many of these events as possible and we look forward to seeing you at the December business meeting!


Upcoming Meeting Schedule

      As we are coming upon the third Tuesday of November, it should be about time for our monthly Rabbit/Cavy project meeting. We would like to remind you that this month, on November 15th, we are switching out the project meeting for an officers' retreat. This will mean that the only people that need to show up are the current officers. We look forward to seeing the rest of you at our next meeting on December 6th!
