INFORMATION ABOUT THIS WEBSITE


The purpose for this site is to advertise the Virginia Big Game Contest and let the public know a little more about the VPSA. The VPSA founded the Virginia Big Game Contest in 1940. See the "ABOUT VPSA" link for the history of the contest. This contest was developed for the sole purpose of compiling information on Virginia's Big Game for the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries and the citizens of the state. The contest is not a money making venture and all money received through admission charges and entry fee's are used to purchase awards, rent the building for the show, insurance, office expenses, etc. Everyone working for the VPSA (officers, directors, committee chairpersons, scorers, judges) are volunteers. We gladly do this for you! We hope that you are able to attend our show in the future and enjoy our website.

If during the course of traveling through the site you find errors (misspellings, pronunciation, etc.) please let me know. A lot of this information is being put on this site quickly and unfortunately not proofed as well as I would like for it to be. I will not take your comments personally. After all, I am learning as I go. Contact me at vpsa1940@hotmail.com for comments.

I will always date the front page when changes or updates are made to the site. Some of these changes may be minor and may not be readily apparent. If you return to this page first each time you enter the site you will be able to keep abreast of what is new and what I am working on. If you have any suggestions as to what you would like to see in the future to make the site more interesting please let me know.
