    Thank You Arizona Association

    I want to thank everyone connected to the Arizona taxidermy Artist Association for another great experience. They had their best turnout of taxidermist and some really neat mounts. Congrats to Chris Kruger for Best of Show and a big thank you to Rick Carter and Mike Orthober for a great job of judging, critiquing and great seminars. Terry Johnson, Dan and Gail Tout and the Arizona board covered all the bases. They even had Bottled ice water handy for all the members all the time free of charge. I'm sure Kerby Ross will have some great photos posted up soon on their website and hopefully here. A special thanks to Dwayne Miller who helped me personally By preparing a pheasant skin, and having everything there for me and I mean everything. It made doing the seminar a real pleasure . I'm still in shock over receiving the Mc Kenzie service award. You will never know how much that meant to me. Heck I don't even live in Arizona. That made any other awards I got pale in comparison. You guys ROCK!!!!!!!!!! Kerby and I would like to thank all the folks that played Poker with us for their contributions also lol.

    I've never met a group of people as hospitable and welcoming as the folks at the Arizona show. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there.
    Congratulations to all of the winners!
