Join us 3 p.m. June 6
Teams: Each team can have 3 or 4 people. The team captain must be a PaSRBA Member. This will only be open to our Pennsylvania residents.
Scoring: Without buzzers there has to be some adjustments. The first 8 questions will be for an individual. For example question 1 is for team captains only. Question 2 is for the member assigned as second chair etc. If it is a team of 3 the captain will also get the fourth chair’s questions. Those are 5 points. On the toss up round as long as one member on the team submits the correct response the team will get 10 points. If every team member submits the wrong answer they will lose 5. No penalty if no one answers. Tie breakers will be on reserve in case a tie needs broken.
Divisions: Junior: Under 12
Over the Hill: Over 18
Cost: Donations to the youth committee accepted.

ARBA Sanctioned Rabbit and Cavy Show:
There are 2 all breed shows, one Saturday and one Sunday as well as many single breed specialty shows. The all breed shows have a separate youth show where youths 18 and under can exhibit. These shows are all day of show entry which means you should arrive about 7am and enter and pay for your animals that day. You cannot enter in both youth and open for a single show. Youth are not restricted to entering youth shows, you can enter open.
This activity is gaining popularity throughout the country. Check the schedule and come by and participate. There are both open and youth classes.
