Hunter had great numbers also with 44 L1 Youth HUS showing, the Amt. side showed 38.
Equation was slightly lower, but still good numbers inspite of the lateness of the night.
Total entries topped out at 2033 per judge.
We brought in 3 extra judges, ring crew to help with the amount of entries and timing, and ran two rings at once.
Everybody stuck around to show till the end, Saturday night ended at 1:30 am.
Sunday started out at 8:00 am with a split pen for SMS, and continued on to the end at 2:00 am.
OMIQHA President, Dan Klaus would like to thank the team of ring crews, who kept things moving along and one of the best announcers in the business.
Also a big thank you goes out to show office staff who kept everything straight from the start.
The OMIQHA directors, staff, queen mum did an awesome job to make the show what it was.
Definitely a show for the record books!!
