2001 would be Galax, VA.     1996 would be Hutchinson, MN, site of the APA National meet that year.   A buff Ameraucana pullet went Champion AOCCL.    2000 was also Hutchinson.   1999 was Connorsville, IN.   1998 was the Bay City, Michigan show.  1997 was at Janesville, Wisconsin.   Was 1995 the Ohio National?   It would be interesting to compile a complete listing, including the champion and reserve champion bantams and large fowl at each national meet.

I filled in Mike and Paul\'s additions . . . I can begin to try to piece together the results of each show from my collection of bulletins, but I am missing the mid and late \'90s. If you have pictures I would be happy to begin compling the historical champions.

1982 - No National Meet

I remember a discussion at one of our club meetings at a national where at least one person was against having annual national meets.  They thought the club was too small to support them annually.

The 1995 National Meet was held at Alma, Michigan.   Champion bantam was a black pullet with Paul Montieth judging.   The champion large fowl was a white pullet, Montieth judging.   The 1993 champion large fowl at Mason City, IA, was a blue pullet by Bernard Conkling.

Although the 1998 was hosted by the \"Bay City Poultry Association\" it was held in Alma, MI also.
Going thru some old Bulletins I see a photo of a bantam with the caption: \"1st Wheaten Hen, Champion Ameraucana bantam, ABC National Meet at Santa Rosa, CA, February, 1982.\"  Now I see that it was considered a 1981 National, but was actually held on January 30-31, 1982.
The 1994 National was at the Illini show in Belvidere, IL.  I don\'t remember any Nationals at Highland.
The 1984 Winter Bulletin says: \"Our National Meet for 1995 will go to the Southern District.\" ???
The 1979 ABA Qualifying Meet was in Pleasanton, CA, near the San Francisco Bay area.  The first official ABA National Meet was in 1980.
