CNASF 2018 Lottery

2017 Alpaca Show

Mission statement "For the Canadian Alpaca Producer to showcase our superior genetics to the world by pooling our resources, marketing as a group to increase the alpaca producers profit – while maintaining the alpacas value".

With this mission statement in mind we want to introduce you to a new idea for the CNASF 2018 held in Red Deer, AB. This coming year we would like to try an Alpaca Lottery with a minimum number of 12 and a maximum of 20 – the Lottery will be open to CLAA registered females and males. The consignment fee will be $300 Canadian dollars, this will cover penning, advertising and other expenses. The Lottery will start at a set time after the Futurity classes end on Saturday April 14, 2018.

We would like to see your intent to put an alpaca in the lottery by Oct 28th. You can begin the lottery registration process with the information you do have. A URL will be emailed to you where you can go back into your same form and update it with your pictures and information you may be missing at this time. We would like your completed form by Nov 18th.

How the Lottery works

You will consign your alpaca. Each alpaca will be assessed by an unbiased alpaca judge anonymously. Based on the alpacas quality and perceived market interest each alpaca will be assigned to a group value. There will be 3 group values. These values will be set after the assessment and will be based on a number of things including the consignor's expectations, and the current market. The consignor will have the opportunity to turn down the lottery value offer. These 3 values will be a set sale price, no bidding will occur. If you want to put your lottery ticket in for Alpaca # 1 at X amount of dollars you do. If you are the only one to put your ticket in that box, the alpaca is yours for that amount of money. If more than one lottery buyer puts a ticket in Alpaca #1's box, then a ticket is drawn out randomly and the owner of that ticket is the winner of Alpaca #1 for that amount of money.

Each buyer is allowed to enter one ticket only for each alpaca. Absentee lottery tickets will be allowed, we will have someone present who will physically put them in the box for the online or telephone participant. Lottery tickets can also by entered ahead of time if you cannot be present at the event. The lotteries will be pulled at staggered times so if you did not win your first choice you have the opportunity to go back and put your ticket in for a different alpaca. If you ticket is pulled, you must purchase the alpaca.

The CNASF website will be very important in showcasing our alpacas to the world – our marketing team will drive the potential buyers to the website. We also will make printable PDF sheets for each consigned animal which will be accessible from the CNASF website.
