The morning of the Winter Show greeted us with a forecast of freezing drizzle. Not what we wanted to hear. After talking to several of those who were coming to show, the decision was made to go ahead. It turned out to be a good day after all in the weather department. As for the show, it was a great show again this year. It was nice to get out and show some birds again after being away from the show for a few months. As always, Jim and Donna Butler did an outstanding job of hosting the show and providing a wonderful meal at noon. Thanks, folks!
Plan to attend the annual meeting. If there is one meeting a year that members should plan to attend it is the annual meeting. Come early, take in the show, and have lunch (only $5)! T. MacDonald
