Chicken-flying Contest Canceled

United Poultry Concerns is pleased to announce that a chicken-flying contest that had been scheduled as entertainment for a military social April 27 to May 1 has been canceled in response to our letters urging that the contest not be held ( PoultryPress, Summer/Fall 1998,p. 4, ). The Special Military Active Retired Travel Club (S*M*A*R*T) took our objections seriously. As a result, S*M*A*R*T has informed us that they "are not having any sort of contests or games that involve any live animals."

United Poultry Concerns would like to thank every one who took the time to write a thoughtful letter to S*M*A*R*T. We have written to S*M*A*R*T to express our gratitude for their compassionate response to our concerns. United Poultry Concerns.

Thank you. United Poultry Concerns. March 22, 1999
