    I am going to bring a few Silver-gray Dorking chicks to donate to the bird auction. the fall 2011 show was my first time at Stevenson and I had a great time. PNPA is a great club and you really put on a good show.

    Last spring, Stevenson was my first poultry show, period. I had a great time and met some super nice people. It was almost a year before I actually entered my first show but I'm now SO hooked! I ended up buying birds at the breeder auction.

    I can't wait for April! Looking forward to seeing those Silver-gray Dorkings.

    Just to be clear, I am not affiliated with the club, I just wanted a place for people to talk about and get excited about the upcoming show! It would be great to get a feel for what people might be bringing for the sale cages, etc.

    Also, meet and greets?

    I sure met a lot of nice silkie people last year.

    I think a lot of people who are going to the Stevenson show are also a bit busy right now worrying about the monroe show that is coming up next weekend. Once that is over people will probably start discussing the stevenson show more.

    Thanks, it's great to see people finally here! I LOVED Stevenson last year and can't wait for next month. I did this after seeing how great a similar thread did for the Stockton CA show a couple months back. It brought a lot of people together.
