Mike Gilbert receives Ameraucana Master Exhibitor award
« on: January 26, 2020, 06:39:29 PM »
Congratulations to Michael K Gilbert!  He has earned over 800 Ameraucana Exhibitor Points after adding in his wins at our 2019 Ameraucana Eastern National, in Ohio, on October 5th.  Our Exhibitor Points are tallied from meet reports after they are published in our Ameraucana Newsletters, so it takes a while for official tallies and then plaques to be made and mailed before these awards are received.  Thanks to Mike's neighbor and Alliance member, Bob Walchak, for making the presentation.

Quote from: Mike
Bob and Theresa Walchak dropped by our house this afternoon and brought the Alliance plaque.   I must confess I had no idea I had reached a points threshold that would merit receiving any type of award from the club.   I don't track points - don't even remember when we started to keep track of them as a club.   But it is a beautifully constructed, very solid award and I thank the Alliance for it...
Thanks again.

Mike Gilbert

Congrats, Mike.  I know you're not a points chaser and this was earned a long time ago.

Thank you everyone.   Royce is correct in that this was a complete surprise, as I had no idea it was coming.   Many thanks.   And also to Bob and Theresa Walchak, friends and neighbors, who presented it.
