    Here are some more pics from the 2009 Cajun Classic this past weekend. These are a few pics of the plantation, Silkies, and the European judges.

    Here is the Plantation, which was the venue for the show;

    FEMA kicked us out! LOL
    (we opted to keep our birds contained ourselves because the shows were too small as they were build for Seramas)

    Hans, and the judges. The guy with the beard and the glasses is Gary Overton, the US Judge. They judged our birds very differently than regular shows. We had to bring our birds to the picnic table for an evaluation by the judges. They wrote EVERYTHING down on the coop cards, and we got to keep the cards for future reference.

    Now I really wish I could've been there. Looks like a great time! Must've been very cool having them judge your birds. And, Chris, looks like you really do have some Cajun blood in you--nice dancing! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Quote:I'm 100% bred born and raised Cajun! I learned to dance on my grandmothers feet when I was four. And my mother tells me the old lady that babysat me when I was an infant would dance with me on her shoulder to put me to sleep. I love cajun french and zydeco music!
