QRF December Rat Show Wrap-Up

 

We finished the year on a high note at the Queensland Rodent Fanciers December Show, where we got to show off our brand new logo design, distribute some of our inaugural 2020 calendars, and of course catch up with the rescue tribe and other breeders.

If you were there on Sunday, you might have seen Rachie rocking the new rescue logo on her shirt, or seen our updated branding on business cards and stickers. 
 
We also had some of our wonderful volunteers manning the RRH table, selling hammocks and other goods donated by our network of rescue volunteers. Our table always sees plenty of visitors, so help talking to members of the community and organising rescue entries is always appreciated. Special thanks to GG, Mae and Caroline for assisting on Sunday!
 
Moving onto the results, there was a strong RSQ presence at the show, and we were delighted to see plenty of entries - many of which placed in their respective categories.

 

In particular, Pet Class saw 14 placements, as well as two class awards.

We look forward to seeing even more RSQ entries and wins in 2020, and hope to see you at the next show in Feburary!
