FYI -

I am working on getting the hotel information for Great Falls, finished.

So far the host hotel is the Days Inn - 406-727-6565 (same hotel as 2007)

single room $66.29 plus tax per night

double room $71.39 plus tax per night

They have put aside 15 rooms for us at this point in time and will offer this rate until two weeks before the show.  If more people need reservations, they will add more rooms.  Directions and further information will be available in the show catalog.

There will also be another one or two additional hotels for back up.  I will add that information later.

Let me know if I have left any information out and I will get it for you.

Thank you Jean.   Do you know yet who to contact for a show catalog?  Does the show have a website?

The catalog won't be ready for a while.  Since I am a member of the Club there, I will get an e-mail with a copy and will be able to post it here as soon as it is available.

The Club at this time does not have a website.

The person that will be doing the catalog is:

jayne_liles@msn.com   (Jayne Liles)

And the show secretary is:

myfunnyfarm4@msn.com  (Laura DeNitto)

It is time to start thinking about what kind of awards we would like for this years Nationals.  If we could get some opinions that would be great.

Put me down for the usual $50.   Last year my check was never cashed.   I just need to know who the payee should be and where to send it.

John, can you share with us what kind of Ameraucana that is pictured with the nest box above?   What a nice looking bird!   ;)

You know Ken, in Kansas, is working on partridge.  Well this is a young one of mine.  I'm hoping she will grow muffs and her shanks will turn from yellow to slate as she matures! ;D

Good luck with that!  You may need more than luck.

Jean,

I will also donate $50 to wherever you feel it is needed. Just tell me where, when, and who to send it to.

For the moment I would say send the monetary award donations to me at PO BOX 461, Newman Lake WA 99025

If you would like to pick your favorite variety or Champion LF or Champion Bantam that would be great or I can just divvy it up between varieties and winners.

If you prefer that I choose where it goes, put it towards to blues. They are my favorite variety.
