    Open to the Public -- Feel Free to come and look around

    Building opens at 6am for exhibitors to start cooping their birds. State Testers will be there till 9am. Early coop-in is Friday 4pm-6pm, Testers will be there.

    Due to state laws, all birds from out-of-state exhibitors must be tested AI free within 14 days of the show or have been certified AI free by your state. Be sure to bring your papers/cards or you will not be allowed to enter your birds.

    Judging starts at 9am on Saturday morning, all birds must be cooped in by that time. As a section is being judged it will be roped off. Interference with Judges will not be allowed. While a section is roped off, please, enjoy the other birds. Sections will be reopened when the judge(s) move to different section. This allows the judges to do what they need to do quickly without interference, but keeping most of the show hall open to the public.

    There will be a Silent Auction and Raffle for donated items and birds.
    *****If anyone is interested in donating any items, breeding pairs, or female birds you can bring them to me early the morning of the show. I will get them to who they need to get to for setup.*****

    There is always an Outside Sales Area.

    Please, visit the concession area to help support the hosting club.

    I have also started a Facebook event page for this show: https://www.facebook.com/events/594351943942085/

    If anyone local is available on Sunday, Oct 20, at 1pm we could use help setting up the tables/cages for the show. You can do as much or little as you can. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    These shows can only continue to exist as long as enough people will show up to help setup and enough stay after shows to take down.

    Less then 2 weeks till the show.

    1: Remember the deadline for entries is this Saturday, Oct 19

    2: We need volunteers to show up Sunday to help set up for the show. We will be starting at 1pm. Should take 3-5 hours depending on how much help we get.

    3: We also need some folks to stay after the show on Sat, Oct 26, to help tear down everything. No cages can be taken down until the show champion is chosen and all birds have been cooped out.

    NO COOPING OUT TILL THE SHOW CHAMPION HAS BEEN AWARDED. This is just plain good sportsmanship.
