Rodent fest April 28th!

Post by Rhasputin on Thu Jan 12, 2012 3:06 pm

Here's the information that was sent out! I hope to see many of you there. Big smile
The UMC is currently working with the organizers of RF to host a show during their event in the farmer's market!
We'll be sure to keep everyone updated!



"This year Spring Rodentfest will be held on April 28, 2012. It will be at the Leesport Farmer's Market at 312 Gernants Church Rd in Lessport PA 19533. Vendor tables are now open for rental and the same rules apply. Four week quarenntine and the animals must pass the health check. I will send o list of animlas that are not allowed at Rodentfest when you reserve your table. If those animals show up they will be turned away and will need to be taken off the premisis.

The rat show will begin at noon so please try to get ther accordingly to register your rats for the show. If anyone would like to help put flyers around where you live to promote this free admission event, please contact me at fxmkpdiva@aol.com and I will send you one. We would like to get the word out to the public so we get a good turnout.

Thank you for supporting Rodentfest all these years and we hope to see everyone there. Let's see some awesome animals, find them homes, and have a great time!"


Spread the word!

Hopefully we will know for sure soon. Casey has been working with the RF coordinators to work out a time and see if we can have the show. We are excited to have this opportunity! Hopefully she can add more details. I'm working more 'behind the scenes' getting the score sheets/etc taken care of.

I am beyond interested in coming to this event. It will be a 22 hour drive but I really want to! I hope to have a showable buck or doe!

Is there any chance that I could have a booth to sell handmade rodent charms? I just learned a new casting method and I can use it to make handsculpted mice, rats, rabbits, and piggies...I will be taking requests prior to the show and charms will be available in silver.925 or bronze. I'll be posting pics of available designs. It would really help me offset the gas money!

IMPORTANT! Can we have a pet class?!?! I want to compete with angora but hardly any angora in the US are show type anyway...mine are not...

Definitely post pics. Casey and I are splitting a table I believe. She should be able to get the info from the co-coordinator so you can reserve a table.

I'll be bringing hammocks and such. Happy

Looking forward to meeting you

Tiny, this show will not have a pet class.
BUT. The UMC has a separate BIS award for coat type, this allows people to breed specifically for coat type, and still be able to win a BIS! Happy


For table rental information contact: fxmkpdiva@aol.com
When you send your email, put in a note that says you're very interested in going to see the UMC mouse show, and to compete!

The more people that are interested in it, the more likely we are to be allowed to host it! Wink
I haven't gotten a 100% yes or no answer yet, but it seems like they're going to let us!

I sure can't wait. I forget it's three months away, but it's better to have everything totally together anyhow, ahead of time.

If I am able to make the drive you mousers must consider me fully committed, (and non mousers might have me committed, heehee.)

EDIT-Emailed her! I am so stinkin excited, lol.

BTW, I've been emailing with Roland, who will be in NY (I think NYC) at the end of April and would like to go to RF but has no car. I am wondering if anybody would be able to give him a ride. Elena, is that too much out of your way?

ehh

It's about 400 miles out of the way (6 hours) round trip. :-/ It would be over $140 in gas and tolls (damn bridge and tunnel tolls) Sad I would but I can't really afford it Sad

Have you talked to Christine Fogu (KAW). She's in Jersey. She might be closer? I'm coming from up by Niagara Falls/Canada.

Also, it's like $40.00 a day plus insurance for unlimited miles to rent an enterprise car? Maybe an option? I definitely want to meet him!

I have a suggestion.
Last march I took a solo trip up to NY for a book signing.
I took a mega bus out of White marsh up to the stop in NY.
It was 35$ each way. It's probably cheaper from NY to PA.
If he's willing to take a bus I wouldn't mind chipping in to help out on a ticket. If he gets to PA on the bus, all he'd need is someone to swing by the bus stop to pick him up. It's tons of fun and the buses are really comfortable and clean.

Bus tickets ARE cheap, like Lycrisa mentioned!

But If Roland is picking up mice, they won't allow them on a bus.
Renting a car should be no problem though!
And Christine might be able to help!

If you plan to sell mice, or items, or other animals, you're required to have a table. Happy
If you are only showing mice, you do not need to have a table. (And we can find you somewhere on one of our tables to store your mice, I'm sure!)

Guess this where I will be starting my lines. I am too excited about the whole idea. If anyone has babies close to me for sale sooner than later, I would be interested. New Jersey

Lunalady, you might consider me a regular supplier of mice. I live in Silver Spring, MD, but drive to West Chester, PA, several times a month to help my elderly father. Can do mouse deliveries in West Chester. Have met mousers from NJ and all over PA there. I breed brindles, tris, c-dilutes, and am having some rexes soon. Can also send mice to RF. Am willing to transport mice from breeders south of me, if we can connect. Check out my web site: http://mrsbeachsbrindleempire.tripod.com

If you join the NMC's text service, then you will receive a text message giving you a 1 week warning for QT, a text the day QT starts, as well as a text 1 week before QT ends after the event, and the day that QT ends after an event. Happy

It also sends you text announcements when an event is finalized. Wink

QT stands for Quarantine. It means that, when you get new mice, you keep them away from your old mice for 3-4 weeks to make sure they are healthy. Then after the 3-4 week period, you know your mice are healthy, so you can put them together. Happy
