    I've never heard of one being held in August before. May (I think) and November are the months I thought they held shows.

    Poor turnout! I don't think they advertised it and the NE BAntam website is terrible.

    I thought all the websites for the clubs are lacking. Need to have emaail connections to the secretaries OR better yet join and become a member and you will receive emails if you opt for receiving the newsletter electronically.

    I think membership is $15 , maybe less, if you opt for electronic newsletter.

    Yes I did go. Not much of a turnout. I was looking for silkies there were none for sale and only 4 or 5 total being shown. A few people selling chickens and chicks, many of the showing cages were empty.
