The BFL National Show is fast approaching! Since the hotels near the fairgrounds do not block rooms for groups, rooms are first come, first served. So if you have not already made reservations, be sure to do that soon! Here is an info sheet that gives dates, websites for the BSG and show venue, and contact info for the 2 hotels on site, as well as an RV park at the fairgrounds.
