At our Ameraucana Northern National, last year, Donna Townsend donated chicken & pigeon leg bands to our fundraiser and I bought them.  Many of these are sizes I don't use, so I'll bring them to Lebanon and set them on our club table for anyone to take.  If any Alliance member wants any set aside, please let me know in advance.

I don't imagine we will know how many displays until we get there?   Who will be computing display points?   Show management does not do that.

I had told Michael, in an email, about a member from Wisconsin  ;) that does a good job calculating the displays, along with someone to assist him and a calculator.  I've printed a dozen ABA display calculation forms to use.

I think I know who you mean.     ::) ;)   But that means I won't be judging the eggs!

We have eight 4" diameter club patches left and I’ll have them at our Ameraucana National Meet for $1 each.

I'm happy to run a calculator and learn the display calculation process.

Let's do it together then Michael.  It is not difficult; but it takes time to count the birds in each class when there is a large show like this one, and determining who has displays and who does not.

This will be a record turnout for an Ameraucana National Meet, so due to the large number of members attending we'll have to change the locations for our Friday & Saturday evening get-togethers.  Stay turned for updates... 8)

If you could do Friday a bit later than 6 p.m. (5 p.m. central time) it would be appreciated.

Both meals, on Friday and Saturday, will now be in the Witham Pavilion Meeting Rooms 1 & 2, at the fairgrounds

Parky's Smokehouse couldn't handle our reservation, so we are having them cater our Friday evening meal starting at 6pm...there should enough food to go around, even if you run late.  The catering is figured for 31 people.
Catering includes barbecue pork & barbecue chicken, a French baguette roll, loaded mashed potatoes and creamy mac & cheese.
We'll also have cole slaw, a tossed salad with dressing and feature Muenk's famous sweet rolls for dessert.  :P
Drinks include bottled water and pop.  Please bring your own favorite drink, if you wish but no alcohol please.
Price will be $15/person.

Saturday we'll have our Pizza & Sub banquet...same time and same location.  Price is $10/person.

A printable meet schedule is attached.  Maybe take a photo of it to have on your smartphone.

My partner and I are making just a day trip on Saturday so we’ll miss the meals, but are looking forward to meeting everyone at the show and seeing some stellar Ameraucanas!
