We have made some drastic changes to the 2010 version of the Circle of Champions!

2010 Circle of Champions Judges  

     Mr. Tanner Winter - Lubbock, TX 

    Mr. Marcus Arnold - Panhandle, TX

  • This year we are offering 2 shows (A and B format) for the exhibitors
  •   ALL ENTRIES will be handled through Junior Livestock Pro Online Entry system.
  • Schedule of events has changed somewhat - check that out for show scheduling
  • With the format and schedule change, we would ask that hog exhibitors wait until late on Saturday afternoon to start showing up.  Weigh-ins for hogs will begin on Saturday evening at 7 PM.  We will plan to house all livestock in the Pavilion this year, and unless hog exhibitors have lambs and/or goats, we would ask that you keep hogs in the trailer if you show up prior to the end of Lamb Show B.  Obviously, if goat/lamb exhibitors have hogs, we will accommodate your livestock.
  • This is the first year for the format change, so bear with us!  We are trying to improve the show and know that there may be some "kinks" that need to be worked out.  You guys have been great in the past!  Please be patient with us as we embark into uncharted waters!
It is our goal to provide a great experience for your family and a competitive atmosphere.  We take pride in our show and hope that you enjoy your visit to CSU, Chico.
