CLOSING COMMENTS

The first fairs of the summer have been very well supported. While I was not in Crapaud for most of the day due to a previous engagement, I was in Murray River all day. It was great to see a good number of exhibitors there. Most of all, it was terrific to see everyone enjoying the company of their fellow fanciers. Everyone seemed to have a great time that day.

Earlier in July, I had the pleasure of judging the show at Trois Rivieres, Quebec. This was a good (and quick) trip. There were some very nice birds there. As always, it is nice to meet new people and see what people are showing in other parts of the country. They had about 400 birds, of which 109 were standards. I also got to judge some pigeon breeds that I have not seen in a long time and some I have never seen; good thing I took my pigeon Standard with me!
