    Well im not sure of a definite meet up but there are a lot of us that go to it, almost one-third of your exhibitor list is from byc. I didn't know that until last fall's show and ive been going for over 6 years now.
    My mallard hen wont get to go this spring because she took it upon herself to go boody, might bring the males. Will try to bring a call or 2 or 5 if they are in condition. Im actually not going to have alot of showbirds until next year due to being in the process of selling some breeds and bringing more stock in, and of course all the hatching going on is taking up most of my time.

    Last Spring everyone met at the BIG rooster around 10:00.

    I plan on being there, not showing but looking to possible purchase some new stock.

    I wont be able hang out with everyone while judging is going on, I am clerking the open show this year. I still havent decided who im bringing to show lol.
     
  7. Yep.. we usually meet at the big rooster at 10 am. Everyone is settled in and the judging is going on. Or if you see the big blue van...just come over and say hey. I will be there really early to get a good spot (Nella, im taking your normal spot, LOL) Plus I have to get tested as NPIP is still on the back burner for sometime this summer. The three 10 month old Dels that I will show will be for sale also.
