Crested BC to celebrate its Golden Jubilee

The Crested BC will be celebrating its Golden Jubilee anniversary in 2012 and plan to hold a dinner celebration on Saturday 30th June in the Northampton area to coincide with the Specialist & Rare Variety Show.

Special section awards have been donated by the President, Chris Hawkins, for the Specialist & Rare Variety Show and many members are donating similar awards for our club show to be held in conjunction with the Budgerigar Society’s Club Show in November.

Special Golden Jubilee rosettes will be awarded to all patronage shows this year to reflect this special occasion as the club is the oldest of the six specialist societies formed in 1962.

The club show, staged in conjunction with the Budgerigar Society Club Show, had a further drop in entry to 35 crests for Raymond Rogerson to judge. However, the quality of the crests benched were, as always, of a high standard and congratulations to Mick Widdowson for staging the Best Crest in Show & Best Crest Any Age with a wonderful Circular Opaline Light Green cock of good size and crest.

Best Crest young Bird went to Arthur Miller with a Tufted Opaline Cobalt cock benched in good condition and sporting a good tuft. The society extends congratulations to all crested exhibitors and in particular the winners.
