*** Please note the Gold Country Challenge is not affected by the Newcastle Virus Quarantine Zones in Southern California. All four counties under quarantine in Southern California are 350-450 Miles from the Gold Country Challenge. These are the same counties that have been under quarantine in some past years for the same problem. Northern California has not had an issue with Newcastle Virus in many years. We also fly the NE course from Nevada which is also unaffected. Please ship your birds as planned, there are no issues here. Only breeders from those 4 counties are restricted from shipping and/or moving birds. All of Northern California is fine. ***
