Sheep convention reduced rate registration due Jan. 11

World War II had its impact on the city of Scottsdale. In 1942, Thunderbird II Airfield opened north of the Scottsdale city limits as a training site for pilots heading to the war effort. More than 5,000 pilots received training at the airfield before the end of the war. Today, Scottsdale Airport is part of the Scottsdale Airpark area, home to numerous businesses and one of the Valley’s largest employment hubs.

Jan. 11 is the last date to register for the American Sheep Industry Association Convention at the reduced rate. Don’t miss this deadline!
