Here are the results from the show.

It was a small show--600 birds overall and 71 birds in the SCCL class.

There were 24 Dutch shown with 6 exhibitors and 2 of those exhibitors were juniors.

Black Dutch: 2 exhibited
BV was a cockerel by Amanda Clark
RV was a hen by Amanda Clark

Blue Cream Light Brown: 3 exhibited (a young trio)
BV was a cockerel by Kristi van Greunen
RV was a pullet by Kristi van Greunen
This trio went on to be the best trio of the show (but there were only 11 trios shown)

Blue Light Brown: 2 exhibited
BV was a cockerel by junior exhibitor Olivia Murphy
RV was a pullet by junior exhibitor Lauren Kipp
The cockerel went on to be Reserve SCCL by a junior--way to go Olivia!!!

Cream Light Brown:5 exhibited
BV was a hen by Sarah Spotten
RV was a cockerel by Kristi van Greunen

Light Brown: 12 exhibited
BV was a pullet by Kristi
RV was a Hen by Kristi

Th LB pullet was Best of Breed and the BCLB cockerel was Reserve Breed. The LB pullet went on to be Best SCCL, Best Bantam in the show, and Super Grand Champion of the show.

Larry Stallings judged the Dutch and the other judge at the show was Jim Sallee.

I'm sorry to say that I didn't have a camera (but I'm a bad photographer anyway). But the winning pullet is the bird who was Reserve Breed at the Fresno show and Sarah Spotten took a nice photo of her that she posted (GCSPF Show 2007 @ Fresno, CA 2/26/2007 posting).

This show locale is right on the beach and it was a beautiful day (60s) with just a few periods of threatening clouds.

By the way, I should add that Sarah Spotten wasn't able to make the show, so her mother, Jenny, exhibited Sarah's birds for her. Jenny Spotten had a booth at the show exhibiting and selling her beautiful artwork. Many of you saw Jenny's beautiful work with the wine glasses with handpainted dutch bantams that were the trophies at the Indianapolis show. Jenny's handpainted glasses will be trophies at the Western Dutch National and the Eastern Dutch National this year.

Jenny had other beautiful birds painted on glass, mugs, cards, etc. at her booth, as well. She VERY quickly sold out of all the OEGB painted work.

Huge congratulations! This is a wonderful thing, both as a testament to Kristi's skill as a breeder and Dutch in general. Does anyone know if a Dutch has taken SGCH ever before?

Wow, this is just so cool...

Yes, there have been several Super Grand Champion Dutch, in just the past couple of years-( Kristi--2?)and several earlier-would have to hunt for them, to be accurate--it is always energizing and a "real feather in the tail" for DUTCH. CJR

That may be a small show but your " Dutch " did beat 599 other birds. And thats no small thing. Congratulations Kristi. Rog
