An Important Note from NYR&CBA Executive Board
It is with much regret that we share with you the decision to cancel the 2020 NYS Convention – Grand Finals.
Over the past few weeks the executive committee has received much feedback regarding this years pending show.
We have tried everything to make this show run, but due to restrictions set forth by the State of NY as well as the NYS Fairgrounds it’s seems nearly impossible.
The executive committee feels that is it our duty to keep the health of our members and community at the forefront of our concerns.
Although we are deeply saddened by having to make this decision, it is in everyone’s best interest.
NYS Grand Finals has grown tremendously over the last decade, with the help of our members. We are dedicated to continuing our legacy of offering a prestigious event for our rabbit and cavy family.
Please know that this decision has not been easy and we hope to be back stronger and better than ever in 2021.
Our NYS Convention show date for 2021 is tentatively set for October 2nd and 3rd.
Thank you and stay strong,
Corey Hayes, Debbie Vecchio, Jean Smith
The NY Executive Board would like to advise NY clubs that in light of the Corona-19 Virus outbreak, that the decision to cancel shows will be left up to the individual clubs, together with their officers and directors . Each club will hopefully follow the guidelines in place by the individual county in which their show is being hosted. At this time each county is different. Up-to-date information about each Phase reopening in New York can be found on the NY.Gov website by clicking here.
Please see the ARBA website for what they may be able to do to help you regarding your purchased sanctions should you consider cancellation or postponement of a show.
