The AKC 2013 National Show was held at the NPA Grand National in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Jan. 16-18, 2014 with over 400 outstanding Show Kings exhibited by AKC members from all over the U.S. Jim Murphy of London Mills, Ill., was our distinguished judge. He selected an outstanding yearling white hen as champion, owned and exhibited by Vince Mazzarisi. This is Vince's third grand champion in a row! It was a competitive show, with the top four Kings owned by four different exhibitors (listed below). A large photo of the grand champion will be coming soon; to the right you can see Vince examining the yearling hen right at the finish of the parade of champions on day two of judging, Jan. 17.
The 2014 AKC National show will be held at Ontario, Calif (L.A. area) Jan. 29-31, 2015 at a beautiful, modern venue. That is expected to be a big show. The Judge will be Vince Mazzarisi. Go to the NPA website for more info.
