2016 Education With A Destination
This year’s expert speakers were fantastic – Dr. Tibary, Dr. Evans and Dr. Kaysen. Each doctor presented their major focus from reproduction, health and genetics. There were alpaca ranchers from across the globe there -- Australia, Florida and all points from the United States.
We opted to stay in the Field House again, a house rental near Flying Dutchman Alpacas with our good friends Dean & Pam Heistand and Gvido & Tina Bars. Each year we rotate bedrooms so unfortunately, next year, we get the two twin beds!
The Quechua Benefit gala night was held at the Cascade Academy and the program was excellent. We met a new little friend by the name of Xiena, a Peruvian girl from Casa Chapi who is 13 years old. She was friendly and warm and we loved interacting with her! Her performance was a personal highlight of the night for me. Jeff secretly bid on a beautiful black alpaca infinity scarf from Nunoa – all handmade and just lovely! It was a very nice surprise, that I will cherish for years.
Hands down, the most fun is the Duck Scramble, always held at the conclusion of the four fun-filled days! This year, we won a certificate for $500 off any breeding at Crescent Moon Ranch which we will use next year! And to answer your question, YES, we will be returning for 2017 EWD! We highly recommend it!
