If at all possible please plan to attend one or all of the banquets. Just by attending a banquet you are showing your government how much support this initiative has. If no one shows up for the banquet it can be viewed that there is little support so why worry about that issue. At our last Banquet in Saint John we had two cabiniet ministers and a third MLA, we sat them right up front and center and when folks were asking me when we were getting wild turkeys I would point out the Minister of Natural Resources and say why don't you go over and ask him. So in my mind these banquets are about alot more than eating and fundraising. Another interesting thing that happened was when I was showing pictures of NB wild turkeys and NB born wild turkey poults to the other cabinet minister and he said to me "so this is conclusive proof that wild turkeys are reporducing in NB" and I replied yes that's right and no one can dispute that those poults born in the wild aren't true NB wild turkeys, not released birds and are deserving of the full protection afforded to any other species. I have included my contact information if anyone wants to get a hold of me for any reason.

Cheers See you at the next banquet.
