    Tennessee folks, we have another show coming up:

    April 23, 2011
    Volunteer State Poultry Club
    Dickson, TN

    I sent an e-mail to get more information, and I got a nice reply from Tim Shelton, President of the Volunteer State Poultry Club:
    The VSPC meets the second Sunday of the month at the local VFW hall in Dickson from 2 to 4 PM. Show catalogs will be sent out by snail mail and e-mail the first week of March. Entry forms will be in the catalog package. All times for events will be in the show catalog. Testing should be done prior to the show. Thanks for your inquiry and interest in the club. I will send directions to our meeting place later as I cannot remember the name of the street it is on. Tim Shelton, President VSPC

    I will post more info on the show as I get it. If anyone else has more info - - especially if you are a member of this club - - please feel free to post information here. Thanks!
