            The Vernon Pigeon and Poultry Club has been setting up and running the pigeon and poultry division of the Interior Provincial Exhibition in Armstrong, B.C. since 1965.  This year the IPE celebrated its 117th year and the theme was “Bushels of Fun for Everyone” featuring the grasses and grains division.  The show took place from August 31st – September 4th this year.  Once again the crowds were awesome with over 150,000 visitors to the fair this year over the five days.  Entries in our division were down slightly but the barn was setup and decorated in fine fashion and the public couldn’t seem to get enough of it!
