Registration Instructions

Go to the Empire Alpaca Extravaganza Registration site at www.alpacareg.com and either create an account or sign in if you already have an account.

After registering your selected alpacas, print off a copy of each fleece tag and place them with your fleece CUT SIDE OUT in a clear plastic bag of 1 mil thickness or less, approximately 30 gallons. Exhibitors who bring their fleece in a bag which does not comply with this AOA rule will be asked to change their bag(s) during check in. Refer to PART 19. (APPENDIX C) GUIDELINES FOR PREPARATION OF FLEECE FOR SHOWING, which is located on the AOA website www.alpacainfor.com. This is very helpful!

Print and send a copy of:
  • Your completed registration.
  • ARI Certificate for each fleece entered. If your name does not appear on the ARI Certificate, please include an Owner of Record to Show Entry Form. Please ensure the copy of the ARI Certificate is from the original and not a 'Certificate Copy' downloaded from the AOA site.
  • Signed Fleece Show Exhibitor Disclosure Form for TBA. If your alpaca is co-owned and you would like both owners listed in the final results, be sure to include signed disclosures for all owners. Please read the disclosure carefully and check the two appropriate boxes, as the disclosure has changed from previous years.
