Clinky Classic 5

CC5 Show and Related Events Rules

The entry form must be mailed with your signed Liability Release form. Email attachments of forms will not be processed as entries. Postmark deadline for entries is October 1st, 2014.

Show staff will not exhibit horses that are shipped to the show. Be sure to have an entrant named as your proxy for the exact day that your models will show. There is no “visiting” the show on a day you are not registered as an exhibitor. A proxy must be registered for the same day that your models will show. We had an issue with non-registered guests to the show who had not signed release forms, and during the course of their visit were posing a serious damage threat to a full judging ring. This show maintains a high level of respect and security for the ceramics. We have a Closed To The Public policy that will be enforced.

Cancellations received in writing before October 1st, 2014, will receive a refund less a $10 processing fee.

Cancellations of October 2nd and later will not receive a refund.

Table Space

Each registered (non-proxy) shower will receive one full space measuring 3×6′, 3′x8′, or 2′x8′. Proxy entries do not include extra table space, unless you are proxying quite a few models (by our estimation). If you are only bringing half a table-ful of horses, please let me know so I can better budget tables.

Tags

All horses must be shownwearing a white tag on a leg, tag is either 1” or 2” long. Please write clearly or print a sticker on one side of the tag:
Horse name
Breed
Gender
Owner’s 3 initials

This must be facing up whenthe horse is on the judging table. Judges do not want to risk damaging yourpiece just to flip a tag. Horses without tags will not be judged.

Conga lines are welcomed because there is no limit of class entries! We want to see the beauties you have, so if your collecting specialty is Arabians, for example, don’t feel as though you must leave something wonderful at home. With our extending this no-limit courtesy, we ask that you bring only the very best of your collection. To fill halter classes with your own duplicates or inadequately restored horses does not add to everyone’s edification and it slows the show down. We hope the no-limit rule will provide the show with an array of production colors seldom seen together in one location. We challenge you to knock our socks off!

Cross entry is allowed only in the following cases:

  1. OF Large Production of either division may cross enter OF LP Collectability.
  2. Glaze and Claybody Custom horses may cross enter only within their own glaze type Workmanship classes.

No cross entry between foal and adult breed classes.

No cross entry between foal champs and adult gender champs.

No cross entry between Overglaze and Underglaze Custom Glaze classes.

No cross entry between SmallProduction/Test and any other division, except its appropriate Challenge Class.

 

Proxy Showing

All-ceramic model horseshows are events best appreciated in person. Proxy showers will be charged a sliding scale proxy fee, but there is no table space included in the package.

Proxy 1-5 models (groups glazed together on a single base will be considered one)… $25

Proxy 6+ models… $40

Show staff will not exhibit horses that are shipped to the show. Be sure to have an entrant named as your proxy for the exact day that your models will show. There is no “visiting” the show on a day you are not registered as an exhibitor. A proxy must be registered for the same day that your models will show. We had an issue with entrants inviting non-registered guests to the show who had not signed release forms, and during the course of their visit were (unknowingly) posing a serious damage threat to a full judging ring. This show maintains a high level of respect and security for the ceramics. We have a Closed To The Public policy that will be enforced.

The ceramic horse community is a happy, friendly family with like concerns and passions. We humbly remind all to please treat others and their horses with the respect you would like to receive. Do not touch other people’s property without their express consent and supervision. Do not move, jostle, or write on the judging tables. Anyone caught writing their cards or tags on a judging table will be excused from the class. You are responsible for any damage you cause; the show hall, show holders, and city are not liable (you will sign a release upon registration). We do not allow public, non-participants, children who are not registered exhibitors, or pets in the show hall. Please leave your pet in your hotel room. Persons under age 18 who enter must have are lease of liability signed by a parent or guardian, and persons under age 18 must have a badge-wearing adult present for the duration of their participation in the show. Any helpers or spouses must wear a badge to enter the show hall. We are very strict about our security for our china showers’ peace of mind. Anyone, of any age, who is rude, profane, aggressive, deemed a danger to other showers or property, or runs/jogs inside the show hall will be escorted from the show without refund. Running, rushing, or bumping is extremely irresponsible behavior in a room full of ceramics. No smoking inside the hall or the studio (the site for related Clinky events).
