2020 National Meet – October 10,11, 2020
Utah Fancy Poultry Association Club
2100 W 11400 S. South Jordan, Utah 84095
Our show takes place in a single, well lit, climate controlled, building. Our aisles are wide with single stacked cages. We are a double show and we regularly draw exhibitors from Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, and Colorado. There is plenty of free parking around the building and you can pull right up to the door to load and unload birds. The buildings and restrooms are all accessible with solid, paved terrain and wide doorways. Information on the facility can be found at https://www.daviscountyutah.gov/legacyeventscenter/facilities. Our show typically takes place in building 3.
The entry fee per bird in the double show is $6. Our club offers cash awards to all class champions and reserve champions in addition to the champion and reserve champion of show plaques. Other fun events included at our show are an auction of show quality birds, prize drawing, egg competition, coloring contest, and photography contest but these events may be omitted or modified depending on Covid-19 restrictions.
As far as Covid-19 goes, our board is dedicated to making sure the show meets or exceeds all of our state’s regulations. We are currently working on a Covid-19 plan which is required for events and will have it submitted to our health department for approval.
Our shows typically have 500 birds or less. With this show also being the American Silkie Bantam Club Western National and a Cochins International District Meet, we are expecting a good sized featherleg class.
There are many reasons that our location makes an ideal venue. Farmington is located just 20-25 mins north of the heart of downtown Salt Lake City and the Salt Lake International Airport, at the base of the Wasatch Mountains in beautiful Davis County, Utah. Not only are there a number of hotels, some within walking distance of the venue, but if you plan to bring a motorhome or trailer, there is camping on site. In the immediate vicinity of the venue, you will find shopping, dining, and even Utah’s premier amusement park, Lagoon, which becomes home to a number of haunted houses and shows during the month of October. If you want to explore Utah, the Great Salt Lake is a short drive away. Take some time to visit the salt flats or Antelope Island, the Great Salt Lake’s largest Island, where deer, antelope, and buffalo roam. Salt Lake City, though being a small metropolitan area, is bursting at the seams with art, museums, theatre, concerts, breweries, pioneer history, and sports venues. Head into the mountains to visit Park City, the home of the Sundance Film Festival, or to one of the world class ski resorts that hosted the 2002 Olympics. And don’t forget about the 7 national parks within Utah’s border! There is really something for everyone – even those family members that might not be as into poultry as the rest of us.
Please be sure to ask the show secretary to submit a show report to Dee Mejstrik at firstname.lastname@example.org so that you get your points!
