    Arbuckle Classic dairy goat club is giving scholarships for youth attending our show to have us pay for youth track. I do not have a head count yet as applications are due back to us July 1st. Can you tell me how much this will cost per youth so I have an idea how many youth we can sponcer? Thank you.

    • David Abbott says:

      Last year the early registration for the just the two-day youth program was $130 or $245 for the whole Annual Convention. I’m checking now to see if that rate will apply to this year or if costs have gone up.

    • David Abbott says:

      Hi Peggy — I’m confirming that the youth early registration rates of $130 for the two-day program or $245 for the whole Convention will stay the same for 2019. Thank you for sponsoring youth for the ADGA Annual Convention!
