Jean said "Dave Anderson will judge the national meet" and she is working on finding a place for the Club to have a dinner on Friday evening...around 8 pm.  This will give everyone time to coop in and we can eat and talk for a bit.
The Rocky Mountain Poultry Association is offering $50.00 towards Champion Ameraucana and $25.00 to Reserve Champion Ameraucana for our national.  They will also be giving the Club $1.00 back on every Ameraucana entered on the national show.

Are there anymore thoughts or comments on awards? Has there been any decisions made?

I've updated the list on a previous page of this topic and am getting very close to finalizing.  I need to get some awards ordered very soon to so they will be ready in time for the show.  Some cash amounts may be lowered after the cost of the physical awards is known.  The finalized list will be in the upcoming Bulletin.

(updated 5pm)
FYI...here is what the "Commemorative Coasters" should look like (subject to change at this time).

I've made some updates to the awards list, back on page two of this topic.  It is almost finalized and the only change that I foresee is adding specials to the Jr awards.  If anyone has more to donate, please let me know ASAP to have it included in the Bulletin.  Of course we'll accept donations right up to judging time.  Michael has given me a list of ribbons and rosettes that the club already has on hand and paid for, so I've decided to only go with 4 of the 4" laser engraved Corian drink coasters.  They will be for BB & RB bantam & LF.

  Those are festive, Thanksgivingy.    Say, do we have a link for a show catalog yet?  Hope I'm not missing a deadline.

The catalog should be out shortly.  I will post it here when I get it. 

I bought those for specials for the show.  I was getting "parts" to make the egg awards and saw them on sale and couldn't pass them up.

One thing that I couldn't find in the show catalog is the address of the show itself.  In the old days, directions were fine, but now with GPS, Map Quest, etc. it is best to print the street addresses...

Montana State Fairgrounds
Montana Expo Park
Poultry Barn
400 3rd Street Northwest
Great Falls MT 59404
