Contests Planned:

Timed Races:

Cup Tip: A matrix array of 22 cups will be placed in a design on the floor. The ferret is placed in the center of the cup array and will have 60 seconds to knock over as may cups as possible. One point will be awarded for each cup. A knock over: any knock over, with front paws and/or with a nose and/or with any front half of the body.

Straight Tube Race: All ferrets will be put into a box, at the same time. The only one way out – through the tube. The quickest one to exit the other end is the winner (the whole ferret including the tail must be out of the tube).

Paper Sack Race: A ferret is put into the sack. The sack is folded one time. The bottom of the sack is made so it will sit flat on the floor. The times start as soon as the sack is put on the floor. Once the ferret knocks over the sack and runs/walks free of the bag, the time is stopped when the ferret’s tail exists the sack.

Maze Race: will take place throughout the day no use of food such as Ferretone or other treats. You can enter your ferret more then once. But will have to pay another event fee of $5.00.

Sock It To The Ferret: The object is to be the first contestant to put the socks on all four of his or her ferret's feet simultaneously.  Time will be called at the end of 5 minutes.

Ferrets entered in these contests the weight is based on the weight recorded during check in time.  The event weight will be posted on the board.
Heaviest Male & Female

Lightest Male & Female Best

Best Costume: Dress your ferret in their best Duds or Imaginative Costume.

Be sure to Bring a Carrier or Travel Cage outfitted so that your ferret(s) will be comfortable to be in it for a few hours.  Include Food, Water, Blankies, and Litter Box or Pee Pads.

    What a Wonderful Day! We in the club had lots of FUN! We had lots of laughs. We were able to show off our babies. We reached the General Public. What a Great way to do lots of Education. Then we had the chance to learn ourselves. The Program presented by Travis was wonderful. Now we know more about our little cousins. The raffle was Wonderful. Even if I didn't win one of the big prizes.

    Thanks so much. I had a great Sat. After watching some of the ferrets and audience I have a suggestion for next year. How about an event where each ferret can showcase their individual personality. Some of them are thieves, some do the war dance (I loved watching this sat), some of them dance and go crazy for the squeeky toy. It would be so much fun to see the different ferrets doing "their thing". Just a thought

    Travis Livieri, did a great job. He was not boring, made it fun, but at the same time you knew he knew what he was talking about. Having the domestic ferrets there was alot of Fun. People were able to have hands on, and there were people there to answer all types of questions
