Some had planned to deliver books for judging in person at the March or April CIPA meetings. Since we are unsure as to whether or not CDC and state guidelines will permit those meetings to be held we ask that all books be mailed or shipped to Sue Ager, 12660 Stone Valley Drive, Peyton, CO 80831 prior to the April 30 receipt deadline.
