"SPRING FLING" ABGA SHOW

Results and Narrative
By Robin Cotton

Date: May 12, 2001
Millington, TN
JUDGE: John Edwards, Stephenville, TX

Friday evening, as many of the exhibitors were getting settled in, goats groomed, etc. a very bad thunderstorm blew up. Now, a lot of shows are under cover - at the Goat Days grounds, we are,too, but the cover is TENT CANVAS! This particular thunderstorm contained everything Mother Nature could throw at us - rain (lots of it), thunder and lightening, hail and "straight-line wind" up to 60 miles per hour.

Many of us had taken shelter under the 30' x 60' main tent - good thing, too, because when those winds hit, the tent started to go North to Covington! Get the picture - Stan and Dawn Benz and Tina, Nina and Mike Williams and their girls, and me, all trying to keep the tent in Millington and keep a little cover over our goats, who, being goats, all thought they were about to melt! Everywhere that tent got away from us and touched a t-post, it split. Things looked ba-a-a-a-d, but they were about to get worse.

We looked in the direction of the ball stadium, and here it came - a mini flash flood! All of about 6" high, and moving toward our goats (who by now were certain they were in melt-down) at a relentless rate. All we could do was hold onto the tent and watch! Have you ever seen goats who thought they were on dry land, suddenly look down and realize they were in water up to their ankles? Yeah, I'll bet you know "that look."

Finally the storm moved off, and we moved out from the tent to see the damage. It looked like a train-wreck, but neither humans nor goats were injured! A quick call to our friend, Jose Mireles (the page included a 911) and damage control began.

Those who could, put their goats back into their trailers for the night. I moved mine into the driest stalls, and we began to put the tent back into order. A call went out for a replacement tent, but every tent in town was at the Navy Base for the airshow the next day, and they were in as bad a shape as ours. So Jose and his crew patched, tied, stretched, and got the tent back up. Then they hurriedly built more stalls under the bleachers for the local folks who had been called (thank goodness for cell phones) and turned around to come in on Sat AM.

The next morning dawned bright and sunny. Jose and his crew were up with the sun, using blowers on the show pen. We decided to delay the start of the show an hour to give the pen additional time to dry out and, while still a little damp after that, was in good enough shape to show. Other than a row of stalls that was still flooded the next day, "damage control" had been so complete that you could hardly tell the storm had done so much damage.

We're thankful that only the tent was injured: as far as I know, the goats all survived with not even a sniffle. After all the excitement, the show the next day was almost an anticlimax. There were a total of 90 entries in the show, a lot smaller than we had hoped, but the quality was outstanding. Judge John Edwards was heard to remark more than once on the depth of the quality in every class. If this is representative of the goats being raised in this section of the Mid-South, the future of this industry is in good hands!

Congratulations to the winners, and many, many thanks to the crew that put the wreck back together to insure a successful show.
