Join us at the UGBA Annual Meeting!
UGBA ANNUAL CONVENTION
August 25, 2012
Sonora (Queen of the Mother Lode) was the heart of the California Gold Rush in the mid 1800’s. It’s a small, quaint town that still has it’s historic flavor. It is an outdoor persons paradise, nestled up against the Sierra Nevada mountains with a number of lakes, rivers, streams and reservoirs nearby. Hunting, fishing, hiking, swimming, exploring, horseback riding, white water rafting, boating, etc are readily available.
Sonora is about 10 minutes from Columbia which was an old gold rush boom town that has been maintained as an "old west" town where you can pan for gold, ride the stage coach, visit the old one room school and the old grave yard. The shops are true to the period and the workers dress in the old garments. You may even catch Mark Twain strolling the street.
There a number of wineries in the area and you will be 15 minutes from a very nice Indian Casino. Sonora is 105 minutes from Yosemite National Park and 165 minutes from Lake Tahoe.
When you sign up for the convention we will send you a very comprehensive visitor’s guide so you can plan your visit for maximum enjoyment. Come early and stay longer to really take advantage of this unique setting.
The closest and easiest airport to get in and out of is Sacramento International Airport which is 2 hours away. Other airports to consider based on the best airfare are: Fresno (2hrs), Oakland (2 hrs), San Jose
(2 ½ hrs) and San Francisco (2 ½ hrs)

The annual meeting of the United Gamefowl Breeders Association is a great opportunity to meet gamefowl enthusiasts from all over the country and to participate in directing the focus of the organization. Although the UGBA would like to focus exclusively on poultry health issues and marketing, a significant effort is underway to fight the radical animal rights extremists. The groups are exploiting the general lack of knowledge about the strong economic benefits and cultural importance that the gamefowl industry provides for rural communities.
UGBA representatives have traveled extensively to attend and speak at meetings concerning disease surveillance programs, organizational meetings for other gamefowl groups, and the ongoing battles we face across the Nation.
The annual meeting will be a unique opportunity to learn about the issues, have your voice heard and your vote counted as we push forward to preserve our rights to own and show our gamefowl.
