    2019 Specialty Theme

    After careful consideration of a lot of wonderful possibilities, we have finally selected a new and creative specialty theme for 2019! CAIRNS IN WONDERLAND will be the theme, and our artistic ring director, Betsy Peets, already has some fun ideas about how to decorate our specialty ring next July. Down through holes, through the looking glass, tea parties, cairns and bunnies galore — we will have fun with this one! So start thinking about your costumes, and any ideas for decorations should be sent on to Betsy. We are trying to be original and artistic. Thanks to Betsy, we have a great reputation for a beautiful ring, and it looks like 2019 will continue the tradition!
