Nuts, I'll miss them both.  I'll be judging in New Hampshire on Oct. 10th and my niece is getting married on Oct 24th.  Good luck to everyone going.

Alliance member Jeff Smith has already donated (4) $25 Cackle Hatchery gift certificates for each event...a total value of $200!  We can do door prize type raffles so all members in attendance have a chance to win one, include them in the fundraising silent auctions or whatever.  8)

We have already made reservations for Friday and Saturday night at the Comfort Inn in Sadalia, MO our Ameraucana Southern National.

Comfort Inn Sedalia Station
(660)829-5050

We live only 7.5 miles from the Fowl Fest, in Birch Run, MI so if Alliance members want to park a camper, trailer, RV, etc. in our backyard during our Ameraucana Northern National please email me.  We can supply electrical with your extension cord and also offer a barrier-free restroom.
I believe free RV parking is also available in the parking lot at the show.

I hope to see many of you at one or both meets!  :D

We were running low on some ribbons and bought some new ones.  Here is a photo of a "junior exhibitor" ribbon that we'll give out this fall to those in junior competition that exhibit, but don't win RV or BV at our Ameraucana National Meets.  We've done this for a few years now, so every youth exhibiting in junior competition gets something.

Are they black or dark green?   Could not quite make it out on my screen.

Black with gold print.  The last ones were yellow with black print that Burt Awards made, but they don't offer ribbons anymore.  The new place I use, Action Awards, only has gold foil printing on ribbons and I felt it didn't have enough contrast on a yellow ribbon.  The BV and RV ribbons are blue and red, respectively, with gold print.
I buy 10" ribbons, so they fit in a #12 envelope without folding and only require a 1st class stamp.
