So on Saturday we had the WA State Championship (Old birds) and Derby (Young birds), 2 Shows combined in one - anyway I think that's how it went.

 

Peter Glassonbury, a National Judge from SA, came over to judge. Despite the predictions of hot weather it was okay indoors with the air con. The event was held at the SWBC Club near Mandurah and it was quite a good showing (for WA) with over 200 birds benched.

 

Peter commented that the standard of the birds was the best he'd seen so far (I don't know how many other states he's visited so far this year) and commended the strong Novice showing.

 

Best Novice Young Bird - Trish Van Dyke

Best Novice Old Bird - Blake Anthony

 

I did okay in the Young Birds Derby, my favourites (Magic and a young DF Yellow Spangle) were beaten into 2nd place but a Young Cinnamonwing of mine took out 1st in his class and then went on to place 4th overall in the Novice Grade, that would be Highly Commended.

 

I did a bit better in the State Championship, a Lutino I bred last year placed 2nd overall in the Novice Grade (that would be Reserve Champion) and a Greygreen I bred last year also placed well overall, I think it came in 3rd or 4th.

 

In the Colour Class Division I won Best NSV for a young SF Yellowface Cinnamon cock that I bred this year, also my Lin Pittick Greywing I bought at auction last year won Best Greywing (I take no credit for that).

 

I took along just over 20 birds and almost all placed in the top 3 of their class.

That's great Renee well done :anim_19:

 

It's a big difference from there to here as you are so isolated, our Adult shield is on Sunday which I guess it's classed as State Champion too and we normaly have over a thousand birds to compete against. Plus I guess the difference would be we have heaps of clubs in Victoria

You know we only have three clubs in WA: SWBC, MBC and The Rares. :D

 

Many members, myself included, are members of all 3. And many more members just don't show their birds. The Novice Grade here in WA is very competitive and it bodes well for the hobby here that in the past 3 years lots of new members have started breeding.

 

Having said that us Novices are certainly taken care of by the more experienced members which is why the quality of our birds is pretty good. A case in point, Kaz's $30 DF White Spangle she got off Gary Armstrong, and that is by no means an isolated case .... I don't know about you but I'd be surprised if you Novices over East are recipients of such generosity. B)
