At the Society's A.G.M on the 26th of January 2014, the membership approved a motion to move the ring issue date, from the 1st of November, back to the 1st of October in any year. This move was met with universal approval. The Éire B.S. Ring issue date is now in line with the vast Majority of Exhibition Budgerigar Societies in Europe.
Other changes which were adopted at the A.G.M include the discontinuance of the finger drawer in show cages from 2015. Only the medicine bottle type will be allowed from 2015 onwards. The membership also gave the new management committee permission to devise a new "points" system of "Show Status" promotion. The current system of time served, does not in any way support beginners or novices in competing with those who might have a bigger investment in the birds,whether that investment be, money, time or both. It would be hoped that where exhibitors move from one level to another,they do so on the back of their bird's successes,rather than time served.
The committee of the Éire B.S are delighted to launch the Society's new polo shirt with the unique Éire B.S. Logo. Society Treasurer Gerard Lanigan is now taking orders. So purchase one now and support your club.
Wear it with pride
