The United Elk Farmers Association will be hosting its 1st Annual Antler Competition & Social Gathering, at the home of Ted and Jill Winters of Boulder Valley Elk Ranch in Rome, Ohio, on July 24th & 25th. We would like to invite all elk enthusiasts to the two day event which promises to be action packed, fun and interesting. Here will be an opportunity to view some of the highest scoring antlers in North America! Reacquaint yourselves with many of your industry friends who have joined TUEFA as well as scores of farmers and ranchers who are interested in, or are new to the elk industry. You can access the Event Registration form and the Antler Competition entry form on www.tuefa.com. We have set the cost to attend at a minimum, $25 before July 1 and $40 after July 1. The hotel information is listed on the Event Registration form. Mail or fax your registration forms to the TUEFA Office. We look forward to hearing from all of you.
