Dear AOA Members:

As everyone who has run an alpaca event knows, it would be impossible to successfully complete such an event without support from many people. I am extremely humbled by the tremendous support we received for this year's AOA National Show & Auction. Below you will find the most comprehensive list that we could some up with. I am sure there are many other people who helped out, so I apologize if we missed anyone, but just know that I am extrememly grateful to you all. Please take a moment to look over this list and be sure to thank these folks and support them as you see them at future events, because they were each responsible for the success of the 2016 AOA National Show & Auction. The size of this list is truly humbling.
