C.B.B.A. Annual Members Show was held at
Despite having to change the date and regrettably still clashing with South Hants B.S. Open Show, the Show attracted 87 exhibits, all entered on the day.
Thanks to Stockport B.S., who had decided to dispose of their staging, half of which has been purchased by the C.B.B.A., the exhibits were superbly presented for judge Bill Bancroft both to judge and comment upon to all who attended the day.
How refreshing, here was a judge who judged the variety primarily, not a procedure which is embraced by many judges these days when presented with Clearwings, the budgerigar appearing to be judge primarily, with the variety taking a very secondary place. Bills approach and explanations were both well received and informative to all Clearwing breeders present.
The acquisition of the staging has probably guaranteed that the Annual Members Show will continue to be held at Wolvey, but the date for 2007 will revert to June.
Notable winners at the event were:-
