    Rodney! Man what a talent you are to this industry I learned more in 5 minutes just talking to you then I could if I banged my head against the wall for a month! Seriously my pleasure to have meet you and to all the great folks who worked so hard at this Championship event! This was the second year for me to be a Judge at this competition and the work was over the top! So many great taxidermist and such a friendly show to attend. I could go on about the event but all I will say it is something you have to experience to see the future of shows will most likely follow. Congratulations to all the winners and to all the folks who are winners for being there to learn and make new friends in the family of taxidermy!

    My Best

    Thanks to Big Rock and the folks at HQ. I have judged taxidermy competitions all over this country and can tell you this one ranks very high in the industry in every respect. The taxidermy work was outstanding, seminars were outstanding, and the accommodations and food were first class. The HQ staff and their families worked so hard to make all involved to feel at home. Thanks again!

    Rodney, thanks for the pictures and all you did. Thanks to Fred, Rick, Dale Manning and Brenda Duvall for taking your time to come judge and do a seminar. Also to the other seminar instructors. As for the Big Rock show, it was outstanding. Thanks for all the hard work everyone did to make this show first class. Can't wait till next year!

    This was my first convention and I cant even begin to express my graditute towards HQ, the instructors, judges and fellow taxidermist. The seminars were beyond astonishing, I think I filled a dozen pages of notes so big thanks to Fred, Rick, Gene, Cliff, Page and Dale. Cant wait till next year!
