                        A.G.M - Ring Issue Date Change

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 Éire B.S Club show to be staged in the Donabate Community Centre, Co. Dublin, on Sunday the 15th of June 2014. As always entries will be accepted on Saturday evening the 14th,between 4pm and 7pm., and between 9am and 10am Sunday morning. Judging to commence immediately thereafter. All members are invited to join Don and Lynda on the Saturday evening at the Waterside hotel Donabate, for the usual craic!!!
