A reminder to our membership; 2017 dues must be paid by March 1st to avoid interruptions in membership privileges. They are payable by check, or now by using a credit card. Make checks to BLU, and be sure to send them to the breed registry service in Wamego KS.
The BFL National show committee had selected and announced the site of the 2018 show will be the Black Sheep Gathering, June 22, 23, and 24th in Eugene, OR. Please make plans to join us for the sheep and fiber events!
Each year, the Youth Conservation Program held during the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival awards a yearling ewe to youth who have expressed their interest by completing an application and submitting an essay. Several different breeds are represented and BLU supports this program. We are looking for a member to donate the ewe for 2017. Please contact a board member or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, if any members attend festivals, shows, etc., with sheep or fiber, please contact the board to request that BLU advertises or supports the show in some way. One of the functions of BLU is to promote the breed, and we’d like to do that as often as possible.
