We will be publishing and distributing the catalogue next week ( Just waiting for a few things to come together ) ... lots in the works ... What I can tell you is .. The Host hotel is the same and we have a block of rooms reserved.. ( Casablanca Winery Inn.. 877-446-5746 ) and our preferred rate is in place until September 20 then the price goes up.Let them know you are with the Ontario Poultry Breeders for this rate $119 per night..... ( don't delay ) we will have our annual social get together on the Friday night in the hotel restaurant bar and grill area ... Entries close on Sept 30 ...once again do not delay .. Entries are $3 per bird..We have several top quality birds and poultry related articles acquired for our Fundraising auction ( many birds from top breeders in the USA and Canada will be up for auction ) ... as well as many other great things to see do and take part in... as soon as the catalogue is complete I will post a copy on PTO ... We are expecting a great turn out as always with our shows usually gathering 1200 plus birds annually .. with much talk of several from Western Canada and a big group from Eastern Canada coming to the show to exhibit ( and possibly sell birds) ... not to mention several from the USA are talking about attending with birds. We have the Brahma National ( all of North America) as well as the Western Modern Game National ... also as many other breed club meets including the District meet for APA and the Provincial for ABA ... hope to see many of you there ... ! Stay tuned for more info next week .... Troy

I'm going to do my damnedest to actually go this year. Just as a spectator! I'm reasonably convinced I do NOT have the personality to show my birds, or that theyre competitive quality in the first place; but in case I ever change my mind, I need to know what I'll be up against :D

I'm terrified but even a DQ is useful information. There's no way I can wash the turkeys I just hope I have some in decent condition. I will also be deaf by the time I get there with them chatting away constantly. The show is awesome and worth going to for the birds. LOVED the serama tabletop show too, hope there's one this year. My bird sitter is booked!

I know I am bias .. but .. we do our utmost to put on the best show in Canada year in year out..Our crew of 4 organizers plus the workforce of the Niagara Fanciers Club.. aim high every year. We hope many from this site attend.. even as a spectator lots to be seen and learned. I applaud KB 's attitude... as she mentioned a DQ is useful information... It happens to the best of us ... even a seasoned veteran like me.. lol... secret is to learn from these situations . Stay tuned for more on the show as it becomes available
