Our 3rd National Finals is in the books. The overall opinion is that it was a success. The Missouri State Fairgrounds were beautiful. A big thank you to the judges, KC Annison from LA, Barbara Hull from MO, Matt Sheridan from CA and Debbi Skinner from MI/FL. We couldn’t have kept things running as smoothly as they did without our arena bosses, Justin Key and Jeff Randall, and all those that took a shift helping in the arenas.
