Presidents Day, Members Show and A.G.M
Wolvey Village Hall Sunday 7th June 2009
The Clearwing Members Show started early on Sunday with the committee arriving in horrendous weather to kick start the day.
Bill walker could be seen legs only delving under the stage to retrieve bird staging. Down in the kitchen area Lyn our President could be heard with a few choice words having forgotten to bring the essential bacon for the bacon butties. Eventually things got better as more troops arrived to help with the staging and more bacon was purchased for Bill Bancroft to get frying.
56 birds were benched and Terry Tuxford along with Subsidiary judge Steve Speed did an excellent job of judging the birds whilst the rest of the members having been fed and watered had a topical discussion in the anti room.
The main winners were:
