If you would like to pick your favorite variety or Champion LF or Champion Bantam that would be great
I've talked to Jean about this and we feel the club treasury is in very good shape and the "normal" awards should be paid from it.  "Specials" that members donate will be above and beyond the club awards and will be awarded for specific wins with credit given to the donors.
Sharon's donations could be divided so that BV LF blue would get $30 and RV LF blue $20 or something like that if Sharon agrees.
Mike's donation could be given to winners with some of his favorite varieties, like bantam & LF brown reds or whatever.

Jean is working closely with Christina, our Western District Director, on the National meet.  The Sec/Treasurer has always worked with the directors as they put on our National meets and I'll be doing what I can to help. 
Below is one list of possible National meet awards to use to get started.  It is very similar to what we've done before and I would like to hear comments and suggestions here.  I have increased the cash award amounts and think it is time for the ABC to offer more in this area at our annual National meets.  Lets get some discussion going.

Might you want to consider a monetary award in addition to the rosette for best overall and reserve overall in the Junior Division?  A modest amount would mean more to them than to most adults, and we certainly want to encourage our Juniors.

Kathy and I will donate a complete Fowl Stuff nest box to each of the four winners of the egg contest...
LF hen, LF pullet, bantam hen & bantam pullet eggs.

Has this offer been withdrawn?  Or will it be a nest box and a certificate?   As long as the club is handling the monetary awards, I'll designate my $50 offer for trio awards.   $15 for top LF trio and $15 for top bantam trio, and $10 for reserve trio in both categories.  Hopefully that will also attract some displays.

Mike,

I think John posted what was offered from a different National with some "tweeks" as an example. 

I was thinking of making the little egg awards again like I did at Indy.




Duane,

I also think that maybe we should offer all juniors an Ameraucana Breed Club patch that show just for participating.

Duane,
My experience with juniors and those new to exhibiting is that they are more interested in tangible awards than money.  Michael may already have rosettes on hand for this, but how about including the patches that Jean mentioned and maybe a certificate?

Mike,
Yes the nest boxes would be a "special" that would be given on top of whatever the ABC offers.
I'll update my post, above, to include the specials.

Jean,
What will your egg awards go toward?       

Sharon,
I listed your award money, but let me know if you what to change it.

That looks good to me, John. Thanks for posting all of the awards. It helps to get a better feel for it and to see what a person is working towards.

Jean,

What is the host club offering our club?  I'm hoping there is some cash to help pay for our awards.  Often a show club will give a $1 per bird rebate to host a national meet, along with other cash and physical awards.

I think it was the $1 per bird we enter.  I will have to check my notes tomorrow.

I have a call in to the RMPA about what they offered us.

On a side note we need to decide which judge we want to judge the National and which judge to do the District Meet.

Your choices are:

Sam Brush
Dave Anderson

Jean,

It has nothing to do with this topic, but Kathy and I are trying to figure out what your avatar is.  We both see an egg yoke and white, but after that we have differing opinions.  Please settle this so we can get a good night's sleep. ::)

Oh, come on, people. You can't tell what that is? It's a drunk blue duck that fell flat on its face.
