Fleece judging began at 7pm Friday evening for the open class.
We had 80 fleeces that were judged, another 51 fleeces
that were just there to be sold.
I am amazed at the quality of fleeces that we had this year,
very clean all presented well in clear plastic bags.

Sales were good today, Saturday. We still have
many nice quality fleeces available to visitors
who will be coming on Sunday.
