    contact them and see if they would be interested in hosting one? most are very happy to as it brings in additional business for them. they just have to have event insurance which most of them already do.
    then you put the word out.

    Yes we have a few of them all within about a 40 mile area of my location. Does it cost anything to do? Also is it hard to get people to come?
    I know in these area people are kind of backyard and dont think chickens are worth much.. but as any chicken grower knows you have alot
    of money and time put into raising your birds. I would hate to try to put one of these together and no one really come.. They say the one
    in uniontown brings hundreds of people and they do well so just thinking if we could get one put together that is closer to this area it might
    draw folks that dont want to do that long drive. like me [​IMG]
