NATIONAL MEET - GREAT FALLS, MONTANA
« on: October 07, 2007, 01:13:12 AM »
I had a phone call from Bob Walchak tonight.   Bob was calling from Great Falls, Montana, where our 2007 national meet was judged today.   I\'m told that Paul Smith will post all the results when he returns from the trip.   Congratulations to Paul and Angela, who had show champion.    According to Bob, a black bantam pullet sent to the show by yours truly went reserve.    Bob took six BV\'s and RV\'s in the bantams, while Jerry DeSmidt also gathered in a large share of the awards.  Sorry I don\'t have any more details at this time, but keep your attention here for more information in the days ahead.

We had a great time at the show. Koralyn and the folks from the club were great to be with. It was an extremely busy day after the adventure getting here. I think Paul and Angela are going to work on posting items this week as they travel to Missouri for the South Central District meet. I will keep mum for now and let you all in suspense!

I have unofficial results, if someone would like for me to post them later this afternoon....

PS I also have pictures that I will be working on this week to post.  I think the Smith\'s and I will be collaborating to see which are the best for posting with the official results as they took pictures also.

John,

That name is not on the exhibitor list.  I thought it was either Nadine Wisniewski or Theresa Lombardi, but I do not see them on the last member list, but they are on the exhibitor list.
