BSNSW Northside Annual Show held at St Ives Annual Show on the 15th of Sept 2013









Show Report Northside Branch 15th September 2013


We were extremely happy the way the annual show went. We had a wonderful turn out and benched a total of 243 birds with a magnificent Skyblue Normal Cock bird benched by Andrew McFarland winning Grand Champion.


We had promoted the day with the focus being on the Novice and Junior competitors and we believe we managed to get a reasonable number of Novices to come along and also had 13 birds benched by Junior members.


We had been fortunate enough to have had two quality birds donated by Marion and Gary Watson as prizes for the Champion Novice and Champion Opposite Sex Novice .  We wish to thank Marion and Gary for their generous assistance and also thank Frank Duff for donation of the cages to display them in. There were a total of 10 Novice exhibitors challenging for the coveted prize and I was fortunate enough to win the Champion Novice with a Mauve Normal Cock bird, with Vince Hudsun, from St George branch, winning the Champion Opposite Sex with a lovely Yellow Face Grey Hen.

Next year we will hope to again focus on the encouragement of our Novice and Junior competitors and hope that every Novice and Junior in the state are encouraged to come along. Our aim is to make the Northside Annual Show a major contributor to the growth of our wonderful hobby and assisting and encouraging the new members are the way to do that.




The Novice and Junior members are our next Champion Exhibitors


I think that everyone who attended the day had a great time and we thank every exhibitor who came along to make it a successful day and hope to see you, and many more exhibitors from other branches join us next year.


Finally we have almost doubled our membership in the last year and also had four possible new members approach us at the show wanting to join.


Please  Note !         The once mighty Northside Branch is coming to get you.

May all your eggs be full
