Gunning to speak at shindig

As it looks right now we will have the pleasure of having Bob Gunning (who developed the Gunning black velvet) give a presentation on how this mutation came about and how he developed it. He will be doing this at MCBA's Shindig in Auburn Indiana on Friday night August 5th with a pizza party to follow. So make your plans to attend and bring your questions with you. More info on Saturdays agenda to come soon.

I wish I could go to a chin show, but the closest ones to me are usually NC.
