We will be using 3 x 5 cards instead of tags. Please see the "All About ID Cards" paragraph below for full information.
All About ID Cards
At this show, we will be using 3 x 5 cards instead of leg tags for your models. You are welcome to still tag your models for identification purposes, if desired. It is strongly recommended that you tag your OF Plastic models, as there may be several of the same model on the judging table at the same time!
The ID card system is the easiest for the judges and show holder and still be able to provide full results to the entrants.
Here are some tips for the card system.
For each model, the entrant will provide an index card with the class number and name, model's name, model's breed, and model's gender on the front, and the entrant's name on the back; this is so the judge doesn't have to write anything down - they just write the placing on the card, and collect the cards of the models that placed in the class. The show holders will then type the results from these cards.
A card is needed every time there is a potential for the model to get a placing. When each breed section has been judged in each division, the first and second place horses will be called back for Champion and Reserve Champion judge-off. At this time, your model will need another card with the model's name on the front and your name on the back.
You can hand write your cards (legibly please), but it is preferred you print your labels using a computer or typewriter (if they still exist). When doing results it is often very difficult to decipher hand writing, which could result in incorrect results. Print out labels using a computer with all of the information on the label. Then, you just need to put the label on a card, put your name on the back of the card, and you're done! Some people will also print smaller labels with their name on them for the back of the card or use an address labels. Another option is to buy a stamper (with the automatic ink pad) with just your name on the stamp, and then stamp your name on the backs of your cards.
It is not necessary that the ID cards be 3x5! You can use the a Avery label template, print the page out on regular paper, and then cut the page into 3” x 5” rectangles, no labels or cards involved. You can even have one of the above templates with just your name in each rectangle.
Print the page with the model's ID card information on one side, turn the page over, and then print the page with just your name in all of the rectangles on the other side of the page. Then, cut the page into "cards" - the model information will be on the front and your name on the back.
Or, you can also buy those perforated business card sheets and print your ID cards using those. Just so long as the ID card is big enough to be legible and not get lost, it's fine!
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE double and triple check your cards to make sure your name is on the back! If your horse wins a first or second and I don't have an owner's name for the results, your NAN cards will be INVALID! You will be unable to use the cards for NAN entry and Merit Awards! **
