WellNowuCme you asked for a show in florida and I found one :) here is the info.

Pit Bull Gear's 5th Annual Pit Bull Awareness Day!

October 22, 2011
State Fairgrounds in Tampa
Gates Open at 9 AM, Weight Pull begins at 10 AM, Bull Breed Coalition Registry (BBCR) Show begins at 11 AM
... ...Admission: $5/person, $5/dog! 1/2 of proceeds go to the Miami Coalition Against BSL (MCABSL) *Kids 12 and Under Free!

"It's time again for Pit Bull Gear's Annual Pit Bull Awareness Day Event. This year the event will be held on Oct. 22 at the Florida State Fairgrounds. Last year we had well over 500 people come through the gates and as always we will try and make this event bigger and better for all the Pit Bulls / Bullies and their owners. We will have Merchandise Vendors, Food, Music (provided by TNE), Prize Raffles, Adoptables, Giveaways and much more! This year our confirmation Dog Show is being supported by the BBCR. They have stepped up and not only shown us support, but the MCABSL as well. We will also have the top organizations in Florida coming out to educate, and many rescue organizations will be on hand with adoptables. CLICK HERE to see some of the great organizations already attending.

You are allowed 1 dog per person. More then 1 dog, you must purchase a spot. PURCHASE SPOTS HERE Admission is Kids 12 & under FREE, over 12 yrs. old $5 per person & $5 per dog with ½ the proceeds from admission going directly to MCABSL. The MCABSL (Miami Coalition Against BSL) will be there educating people on BSL and what they can do as owners to help prevent it and fight it. As well as their Anti-Dog fighting campaign, teaming with NO KILL NATION.

Some of the activities we have in place for this year are:

• Bull Breed Coalition Registry Confirmation Show - an organization founded to provide a network of support, education and documentation of Bull Breeds. (Conformation classes: Shorty Bulls - American Bully Standard, Pocket, XL - Classic Bully)

• A Fun Show (we will have different categories to accommodate all types of Pit Bulls & a Best Shorty Bull class) Also included is a best "other" class for all the other breeds that come out.

• Rescue Class - This year we are going to do 2 different rescue classes. One will be open to all rescues, as we usually do. The other one will be for "adoptables" only. This will be only for the dogs from all the 501 C3 rescues that will be there for adoption. We think this will be a great way of showcasing them for everyone to see, in hopes of connecting them with a great owner.

• Junior Handler's Class - This class is so important to us, because it not only shows the true nature of the pit bull with children, but it is a chance for the children to learn something positive and fun they can do with their dog.

• Weight Pull - This will be open to any dog and will be supervised by a top weight pull person. A positive fun activity you can do with your dog, that's great for draining energy.

• Candlelight Vigil - For all of those dogs lost this year. Hosted by the Miami Coalition Against BSL.

Other activities we are planning on having are: CGC Testing, Temperament Testing, Obedience & Schutzhund demos with Pit Bulls/Bullies.

* The BBCR (Bull Breed Coalition Registry) is offering FREE Registration of your dog until Oct.1 - You will be able to register your dog at the show for a fee, so take advantage of the FREE Registration now. BBCR Registration

Thank You for all your support and remember" ~ Home Page

Glad you are happy lol , wasnt abkc or ukc or anything but looking into the BBCR they offer alot of good things, they have a canine good citizen thing and obed and obstacle course show thing going on soon too i think in kansas though. Id like to see if they have anything like that closer to the border here though sounds like they offer the most for the bully breeds so far. And they just brought in a new class apparently the bred by class where breeders can get credit in the ring for there productions.
Were you looking for something to show in or just go spectate? either way this sounds like something to atleast check out , if you go let me know what you thought of them. Havent heard anything about there shows yet.

I'm definetly gonna check it out. I was thinking just to spectate right now. Zorro needs to clear up that demo and he needs to take a little off the top...if u know what I mean (snip snip to the ears) the wombat look isn't winning him any votes lol

Ill take him just to look and so he can get use to the atmosphere so long as his demo is cleared up

The way the BBCR has set up their shows is by the zone method. Each region is set up by zone and there cannot be more than two shows per zone in one month's time. For example, Alan and Connie's show in Florida is October 22, 2011 and then Chas' show, the Blueprint Expo is here in Atlanta on November 19, 2011 (same location he always threw Bullypalooza.) It is definitely different from the ABKC's 984723984 shows every weekend, but I think it keeps it fair. No more champing a dog out in one or two weekends.

Thanks Angel, the jacksonville show is a little too far from me....but this tampa show will be just fine! ;)

Sorry Angel. I couldn't make it out there today. I had to choose from going to the show at Tampa today or go to Halloween Horror Nights tomorrow at Orlando. I chose the scare!! Lol

Hopefully somebody went so we can see some pics :D
