-We once again had a great Winter Show. The new location proved to be a good spot with lots of room and very good lighting. The entries were up by about 50 over last year which was great to see. And we had some new exhibitors which was also great. A reminder that memberships are now up for renewal. Also, if anyone would like to donate funds for Spring Show awards, please contact me. See you at the Bantam & Pigeon Show/Annual Meeting on April 5.
