Fancy Judging In South Africa?

Fancy judging in South Africa?

We hear from Fred Wright that South Africa needs a couple of judges for its National Budgerigar show on Saturday 27th July this year. The show is to be held in Bloemfontein, about three hours drive south of Johannesburg.  

Fred Wright is going and BSSA (Budgerigar Society of South Africa) would like a couple more overseas judges.

There are no expenses to be claimed but the society will provide transport from and back to Johannesburg – and cover everything for the weekend of the show.

Flight from the UK to South Africa is about £800

South Africa is a wonderful country and this show would be a perfect weekend to start or even end a superb holiday.

The quality of the birds is excellent and there would be around 1500 budgies at the show.

Terry Tuxford About the Author:

Terry Tuxford first began breeding budgerigars in 1979 and joined the BS in 1980. He was elevated to Champion in 1985 when he went into partnership with Brian Poole. This partnership is probably one of the longest existing partnerships in the UK hobby today having lasted some 27 years so far and is still going strong. Terry and Brian are also partnered by Yvonne Tuxford who joined the BS in 1990.

Terry demonstrated his penmanship early in his budgerigar career and wrote in the second edition of Budgerigar World. Little did he realise then that in just over 8 year’s time he would become editor following a 20 month apprenticeship with founding editor, Gerald Binks. Terry went on to edit a total of 245 editions up to May 2011.

In 1993 Terry took his Budgerigar Society Judges final examination and was awarded Subsidiary Judge of the Year and has gone on to judge the Budgerigar Society World Show on three occasions as well as many top shows at home and abroad. He is also an accomplished speaker and has been a guest at societies throughout the UK as well as Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada and many other European countries.
