Palomino of the Year   |   Membership Contest   |   Registration Contest

A contest for Palomino of the Year for both Open and for Youth is held each year, coinciding with the PRCBA Sweepstakes. The winners will be determined from rabbit ear numbers contained in show reports submitted to the Palomino Sweepstakes Recorder.

The winner will be based upon BOB, BOS, Best 6 Class &/or Runner up, and BIS wins as follows:

  • BOB gets 2 points times the number of Pals shows
  • BOS gets 1 point times the number of Pals shows in that sex
  • Best 6 Class &/or Runner up and Best of Group will receive an additional 10 points, and BIS receives an additional 20 points (above the amount obtained for BOB plus Best 6 Class)

In order to count, the show must be sanctioned with the ARBA and the National Palomino Rabbit Co-Breeders Association, and there must be at least 5 Pals shown with 3 exhibitors. The final tally and records will be kept by the official Palomino Sweepstakes Recorder.
