The C.B.B.A Club Show 2002 in conjunction with the Budgerigar Society World Championship Show

All roads led to Doncaster on the weekend of 16th & 17th November, when the Clearwing big guns met head to head for the fancys equivalent of footballs match of the day.

The last show at the Race Course Venue for a while saw an increase in entries on the previous year, with a total of 164 Clearwings entered, of wich 149 were benched.

Judges Dave Guppy from Somerset (yellow-wings0 and Brian Scott from East Sussex (Whitewings) thoroughlt enjoyed their Club Show experience although both agreed that numerically and quality wise the bulk of the competition came from the Champion ranks, with the lower sections being far less populated .

Top honours this year came from the Yellow-wings, an immaculate Yellow-wing Light Green Cock staged by the Worcestershire based partnership of Hughes & Proctor coming to the fore. This well balanced bird in excellent condition was an easy winner of the Yellow-wing Any Age Certificate and went on to be best Yellow-wing, Best Clearwing Any Age and subsequently Best Clearwing in Show.

The same exhibitors also took the awards for Best Whitewing Any Age, Best Whitewing in Show, Best opposite Sex Clearwing in Show and second best Clearwing in show , with a Whitewing Violet Hen. A bird of good position, with width of face and depth of mask.

Leading a contingent of 32 Whitewings Young Birds was Roger Day’s Whitewing Cobalt Cock. A good size bird with width of head and powerful shoulders.

Malcolm & Pam Freemantle’s stylish Yellow-winf Light Green Hen beat off the challenge of 40 other young birds for the Yellow-wing Young Bird Certificate, the same bird also gained the award for Best Young Clearwing in Show
