You tell them AugeredIn!
No but seriously just today I was thinking about how informative your talk was on peafowl genetics. I'm not just saying that to be nice, I seriously found it the most interesting and helpful of all the things said at the convention.
AugeredIn was not only showing us a great PowerPoint presentation, but he was doing punnet squares on a white board showing how to figure different varieties bred to one another on a punnet square.

What does age have to do with going? You can bring one of your parents. Both of my parents came and we all stayed in the same condo unit but I did all the UPA stuff while my parents did their own thing.
I guess I can announce a bit about the convention. The convention announcement is going to be in the magazine - it should be on pg. 28 and once the magazine is out I can post the magazine page on BYC for everyone.
Right now we are looking at having the convention September 8-10 and it will be in Florida again and also at the SeaSpray condo again. While it is back in Florida, we do have different things planned so it won't be just like last year. The UPA plans to visit more than one peafowl breeder - one of which is AugeredIn. Rocking B-A-B is also on the list and so am I. They were also trying to get Elton Housely to let us visit him, but I don't know if that will happen. It all depends on cost, but we are hoping to have a bus to take everyone from place to place instead of carpooling because that proved a little more problematic last year and in the past the UPA has rented a bus to take everyone. Buses are fun because everyone can talk together on the rides to and from places and you don't have to drive!
My birds told me to tell you to bring them treats if you are coming.
