Looking for Mammal Judge for Indiana Show

Submitted by Cecil Baird on 1/2/01. ( jjbaird@ligtel.com )

Any suggestions or volunteers for a mammal judge for our Spring March 17-18 show in Columbus Indiana? It would be for the professional and masters category and would include a 2 hour seminar (more or less).

We pay $350.00, and transportation and hotel accomodations are paid for.

We will be at a modern Holiday Inn Holidome, and as usual we expect a large crowd from at least four other states.

We've had judges for other categories lined up for some time, but for some reason our president is having a hard time getting a mammal judge.

The following information was submitted to the NTA Judges Profile Handbook Volume II for Mike Briganti:

Mike has been an active judge for 20 years. He has won over 200 major awards which include 23 best of category awards. He has received the NTA Award of Excellence. He has also judged and given numerous seminars in all levels of competition in order that he might share his expertise with others.

He judges mammals, gameheads, birds and fish. He has judged for Pennsylvania, Garden State and California to name a few. He has assisted other judges such as Frank Newmyer and James Mariero.

He offers seminars on mounting mammals, gameheads, birds and fish.

I hope this information is helpful.

Thanks for the responses! And Gary Pegg...

Unless you can pack yourself into a UPS box I don't think we could afford the airfare right now. If we could you'd be welcome.

20 years?!

This response submitted by Patrick Rummans on 1/9/01. ( birdspec@lewistown.net )

Ummmm...How old is Mike Briganti? I'm 33 and I'm pretty sure that he's no older than I am....and you say he's been a Judge for 20 years? Really?! He'd be the first "Teenager" judge I've heard of for taxidermy competition! lol Where are you getting your info CC? If I'm wrong please correct me -- I'm not trying to be antagonistic, just incredulous...
