    Sounds wonderful. If your show is APA sanctioned and you need any help with Secretarial duties I have show software for that and can help. When considering your dates please try to work around the two dates of currently sanctioned (tentative on one) APA shows attended by Lousiana exhibitors...

    We really do not have a problem with the Juniors. Theresa L. at LSU is one of the biggest proponents of the kids showing birds and has put a LOT of energy into it over the years. Friends of mine who are judges and have judged the kids' birds especially at the State Fair say that the quality of...

    I lot of the members in this North Louisiana club are older folks, and many have been showing poultry for 30-50 years or longer. Most do not use the internet much, if at all. You need to contact Jim Crain if you want to be put on the mailing list for the Haynesville Show. The best way to...

    Hi Roxanne, Pat forwarded you emails on to me, and also Doris'. Doris was not aware I was the new State Rep - now she knows. <G> Anyway - in your email you had a question about the Associate Membership (with APA). The Associate membership is for any group or individual (this is more rare)...

Besides the club's name I have underlined a few areas (mainly club dues) that you might want to discuss at your meeting. When you have it the way you want it I can...

    Once you have a flyer made up, send me a PDF or something similar and I will print some out and take them in to Winnfield and the feedstore in Jonesboro. That is getting a bit far north but there should be some interest. If you need them, I should have a set of 'generic' poultry club bylaws...

    I found the fair catalog for the 2012 Rapides Parish Fair -it is not an Open show this year so I it must have changed from the 2011 show. The Fair show is open to Juniors only and they must be residents of Rapides Parish: Here is the link: http://www.therapidesparishfair.com/catalog.html Ann

    hdowden . . . Thanks for the link and the info. Most of the county fairs only have classes for the kids in poultry, with no open classes. But if they have enough cages - or the hosting club can borrow some - there is no reason why you could not have an Open poultry show using the same...

    I was looking at that Leesville Fairgrounds contract - those rates are really very good. But how many show cages do they have? How big is their Poultry show at their fair?

    You are welcome! You probably did not notice I was the APA State Rep because I am probably the worst one ever! I have been SO busy since we moved back down here that I have very little time for anything else besides work.
