But Beth, you're assuming that Utah gets picked.  There are others in the running.

None that take me anywhere near South Dakota!😂

There is also a bid I'm waiting on from a club in FL.

Florida when the rainy season is over, is very nice.  Where in the North?  or Central near Orlando?

...I think we need to also look at the venues layout. Portage was a very well ran show, but I did not like the three barn set up. I think for a National meet we should try and find venues that have one area, like fowl fest and Greenville. Janet how is the venue set up at the Utah show? Is it all in one building or spread out in different buildings? I just feel we have better interaction with our club table if it's closer to our Ameraucana entries. Just something I have been thinking of lately that I haven't ever heard of being discussed.

The Portage people were great, but no show is perfect and the biggest negative for me were the very narrow aisles.  The 4 or more building setup is typical of most shows held at fairgrounds and my knees were shot from all the walking on pavement...my right knee is still sore. 
Fowl Fest offers 6' wide aisles with single stacked coops, all in one large well lighted arena with restrooms thru a set of doors and consessions thru another set of doors.

I saw a comment on the forum asking about how the show is set up. It is all in one building.

I think Jonathone Stone is putting that bid in and it will be Brooksville in Central Florida. 1.5 hours due east of Orlando, FL.

Yes, if Nov, Dec date it is cooling down and nice!!

Yes, the West Florida Poultry Show in Brookville. But I haven't heard back from them so you might want to give them a nudge. How far are they from where the storm hit?

Jonathon said some wind, limbs fell, no real damage this time. No lives lost. The usual cleanup, causing some delay in business

Rebecca, when would you say the annual hurricane season ends in Florida?   December?   March?  I really don't know.

Mike hurricane season runs from June 1st to November 30th, though it is not unheard of to have a tropical system out of season. Historically September and October have been the most active months.

Talked to Amanda from DFFC today at there Greenville show. She will put together there bid after this weekend show concludes. I think we need to also look at the venues layout. Portage was a very well ran show, but I did not like the three barn set up. I think for a National meet we should try and find venues that have one area, like fowl fest and Greenville. Janet how is the venue set up at the Utah show? Is it all in one building or spread out in different buildings? I just feel we have better interaction with our club table if it's closer to our Ameraucana entries. Just something I have been thinking of lately that I haven't ever heard of being discussed.

Russ it is just one building currently.

I think the amount of buildings is a non-starter.  I don't think that's a large enough issue to make a difference in choice of venues if all the other requirements are filled.  More important is diverse locations to get more Breed & Group Awareness and whatever problems may have been in Portage being spread out, it fulfilled those two necessities.

I really didn't notice any problems at Portage.   Our club table could have been in the building where the vendors, restrooms, food and seating was, but we could not have had the silent auction of birds in there, as that is where people go to get away from the dust and the noise to talk and to eat.  Our table was in the front part of the youth building right by the open entry door, and we had lots of traffic there.    As far as multiple buildings, that is very common at county fairgrounds.
