Scores and Volunteer Time
at "Listed" and Partner Shows
Shows listed in the VADA/Nova Calendar that are NOT PARTNER SHOWS (such as the Kelly's Ford Shows) cannot be used to satisfy the VADA/Nova volunteer time and their score cannot be used as VADA/Nova scores. These listings appear in our calendar as paid advertisements.
Scores from PARTNER SHOWS can be used as VADA/Nova scores, but volunteer time at these shows will not satisfy your volunteer time requirements.
