During the IWBA National Meeting held on Friday, October 28th - James Konecny introduced Lou Cunningham, who judged the Blue Fawn Calls.
Lou explained a minimum of 50 birds are to be exhibited in order for the variety to be considered and recommended by a judge. The Call Breeders went above and beyond to put on one heck of a display! A grand total of 98 top-quality specimens were represented at this show.
Lou Cunningham says this variety will "Blossom & Bloom" considering they are already at the point to be highly competitive with the other varieties!
He concludes with a glowing recommendation to APA & ABA to adopt the Blue Fawn as a recognized variety!
We later heard after the board meeting they Blue Fawn was officially accepted this weekend.
