The Challenge Now Sold Out

After selling 5000 copies, Gerald Binks’ book, ‘The Challenge’ is now COMPLETELY SOLD OUT. The author request that no further orders via Pay Pal are placed, as a third reprint is not envisaged. Gerald said, “My appreciation to all those who have purchased copies and may I remind them that signed First Editions in very good condition, can  command prices in excess of £400 (over $500).  It is therefore my advice, that as all copies have been sold, the second edition will arguably command greater prices than the new selling price, second hand. Consequently, it is advisable that purchasers do not lend their copies to anyone. I wish the hobby well.”

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.

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.
