Georgia Junior Simmental Association
Hello GJSA Members;
Well GJSA members it is about time to kick off a new show season by attending the Georgia Junior Beef Futurity and our GJSA Round Up show. This will be the 2nd annual show we have had at the Beef Futurity and we are hoping to make this a yearly event. With your help we will increase our junior member numbers again this year. Last year at the state show the Simmental shows had the largest exhibitor numbers in the entire show.
Mr. Marty Seagraves and I are going to try to fill some big shoes and be your GJSA advisors. We are excited to kick the new show season off and welcome all of you to the Round Up show on Friday afternoon after the steer show. We will once again hold this in the Beef & Dairy Arena and hope to get started approximately 30 minutes following show. We will have a table set up during check-in for you to sign up for the GJSA Round Up show so make sure to come by and see us.
Keep in mind every exhibitor must me up to date on their dues prior to participating in the show so please mail your dues in now in order to participate. Dues for GJSA are $15 per year and our year runs from March 1st to Feb. 28th of each year. Keep in mind members of GJSA have the opportunity to win banners and buckle at this show. Also, each GJSA member has the opportunity to participate in the yearly Sweepstakes Contest where you accumulate points all show season for showmanship and class placing. Make sure to visit the GSSA website to view the Sweepstakes events that you can count points on. In addition to show points, points are also awarded for attending GJSA meetings and Field Day events.
GSSA Field Day this year is next weekend and there will be junior events such as a judging contest and you can count points just for attending, so make plans to attend. Sorry for the late notice about this event but we will try to keep you posted sooner from now on about future events. If you plan to attend please contact Holly Alford to be added for meals.
Well for now that is all the information I have, but please see attached dues forms, print them off and get your dues mailed in so you will be up to date and ready to show at the 2013 GJSA Round Up Show held in conjunction with the Georgia Junior Beef Futurity on 7/ 12/13.
