PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING
 
We ask that you do not start cooping out until all awards are handed out. Please show respect to those exhibitors receiving awards. This should also help minimize the loss of any birds due to theft. If there should be an incidence of theft, the show management will commence lock-down and inspection measures to locate said bird. Please know that we value all of our exhibitors and want each and every one to have an enjoyable experience at this show. We feel that this rule is in the best interest of our exhibitors as a whole. For inclement weather with long travel distances, special arrangements can be made. Thank you for your cooperation.
