    I will be there! Showing a few bantam Polish, and maybe a standard tolbunt Polish if her crest finishes feathering out by then. [​IMG] Will be trailering up there with my friend & show buddie, Maria (Crunchie) and dragging my hubby along kicking and screaming. [​IMG] Can't wait!

    I am horribly allergic to rabbits, can't risk it with the ARBA National there at the same time. I would probably go otherwise.

    Quote:Me too! Me too! I wish you lived closer - I'd hop in with you. A bunch of us from the club are planning on trying to go out together, but rental vans are not cheap. Then, after we stack up all our show birds, we need room for what we buy! Do they rent tractor trailers? [​IMG]

    I wish you lived closer, too! Of course, you could always drive down here anyway and hitch a ride with me. lol Ah, then you could visit and see my place and the feathered and furred crowd within! [​IMG] Ooooo, that DOES sound like a good idea! [​IMG]

    Totally! Except that you are still six hours from me, and I would have to drive all that way alone! Maybe we could meet up off of 95?

    Listen to me, like we're going next week! [​IMG]

    Anyone know anything about the hotels the club recommended for the show? They are two Marriots by the Keystone Crossing. But, they seem a little far away from the fairgrounds.
