JBBA National Show & Conventions - Entries Due June 1st

There are only 2 weeks left to enter for the National Show and Convention to get the early entry rate and save $100! Early entries close at 11:59 p.m. on June 1st at www.jbba.fairwire.com.


Things to remember when entering –
– If you have to enter more than one exhibitor it is easier to enter as a quick group so all of your transactions and receipts will be in one place.
– Even if you entered last year, you will still have to make a new profile this year to enter an exhibitor.
– Every exhibitor and peewee participant must pay the exhibitor registration fee. This will include a t-shirt for each exhibitor, entrance into Fun Night and the Meet & Greet Social and more.
– While you are going through the entry site it is handy to have the registration papers in front of you to accurately enter all of the registration information.


It is also beneficial to have the Entry Packet pulled up so you can read through it to make sure you are aware of the rules for each show and contest. The entry packet can be found here – https://beefmasters.org/…/FINAL%20Entry%20Packet%202021…
If you have questions while going through the entry process please call the BBU Office at 210-732-3132 or email Rylee at [email protected]
