    Do you have to be a member of the state association to attend the seminars or the show?

  5. The Virginia Show is smaller but enjoyable show. It has been one of my favorite shows next to NC and WV. There is a wonderful group of talented and knowledgable folk ready and willing to share with taxidermists all levels. They have a hospitality room for after the seminars and it almost always spreads out into the hall in group discussions. If you have never attended the show or attended a competition period, invest in yourself and come see what you can learn and network with some great people in our industry!
    See you there!

    Just curious - Who plans on attending this year?
