Presented each year at the ADA National Young Bird Show
IDS brought the "Carl Naether Award" back in 2000 and renamed it the "Naether-Hanover Award" in recognition of these two great dove fanciers. Both men shared their knowledge of the doves/pigeons with many. Carl Naether received the very first award just prior to his death at age 99. Don Hanover presented it to Carl on behalf of IDS & said it brought tears to Carl's eyes for finally being recognized by his peers in the fancy he dearly loved.
IDS is committed to sponsoring this Award for those chosen by their peers for their contributions and commitment to the dove hobby.
