Ok guys and gals, we are in the midst of the Fall/Winter show season. The UOC had a double Special Meet this past weekend in Inverness, FL at the Central Florida Show. There was a good representation of Orpingtons in attendance with 22 Large Fowl Orps. Congratulations to UOC members Sylvia Bland and Bobbi Porto for their big wins at this show. Sylvia won Champ English and Reserve Large Fowl with a Buff Cockerel as well as Reserve English with a Black Cockerel in the White Card show and Bobbi won Champ English and Champ Large Fowl with her Buff Cock Bird in the Blue Card show. Great job ladies.
There are several more shows in the immediate future in the Southeast. Coming up on December 5,6 & 7 is our UOC National in Knoxville, Tn. I sure hope everyone intends to be at this one. I should be a great show. The following weekend in Pensacola, FL is our District Meet for District 12. I hope that the Southeastern crew is planning on attending. After the first of the year we will have the Sunshine Classic in Lake City, FL on January 10th and the Chattahootchee Valley Poultry Association in Newnan, GA on February14. There is also another show in Inverness on February 21. I hope to see all you guys there with the birds spit shined and ready to have some fun.
