  One more thing that was left behind.  A search to see if at least 5 ABC members have bred self blue bantams for at least 5 years and maintained an APA membership, so the recognition process could begin for them.  If the requirements could not be filled, then the vote was to start the recognition process with the large fowl splash.

Ok, it is all fixed now.  Just a formatting error on the report, from when I added the new fields for 2019.

And, yes, it does look like Athena has earned points for Junior Master Exhibitor!  Congratulations!

Thanks for updating. I'm a bit confused. Athena has 5 separate lines on the cumulative Open report. On the cumulative Junior she has points for bantams but we have not shown bantams yet. It looks like she made Junior Master Exhibitor?! She will be so excited!

Researching this...looks like there is a duplication of records on the second spring Utah meet report.

I think a good kick off for articles would be an article from our ABC President with promotion of our club. A brief club history and why join the ABC. Make it a special invitation to join from our President. If we could set up a schedule for each DD, Secretary/Treasurer telling what is going on in their district, results of recent shows in their district or in the case of Sec/Treas behind the scene of the ABC. Projection of what new or past things have been going on or are on the horizon for the ABC. This would account for half of the years total of articles. Don would have a natural with lead in to our 2019 ABC National Show. Perhaps Paul could highlight past accomplishments for the recognition of the LF Self Blues leading up to the next hurdle in Ohio. We have some great Junior members that might be willing to give their view on the ABC from a Junior Members perspective. After all, we do raise poultry and are members of the ABC. What a great chance to CROW about the ABC.

Who is going to write the monthly articles?  I know it became a problem because only a couple people on the Board would write one every now and then.  This cannot become another responsibility of the Secretary/Treasurer position.

Well, my apologies, I only remembered the Poultry Press 1/2 page ad for the National.  I will get that re-started for the next issue.

From my memory on the discussion about Poultry Press Ads and articles at the 2018 ABC National Show Meeting, I thought that we voted to start advertising again on a regular basis to see if Poultry Press would start publishing our articles again when they are submitted. It was discussed that Poultry Press was ignoring ABC articles that were being submitted and showed favoritism to AA articles. Many of the members thought that this was because AA had been advertising with them and we had not. I thought we voted to start advertising again, submit articles on a regular basis and see if that would correct the issue.

We also voted to restart the classified ad in the Poultry Press, and restart the articles!

That is not how I remember it, Paul.  Perhaps Gordon, or some of the others that were there, could speak up.

Poultry Press has not been, in the past, advantageous to us, for advertising.
