After judging and before the A.G.M. a new system of catering was tried which proved a great success.  This was a case of members bringing various eatables with Margaret Walker arranging things and all enjoyed the experience. The same system will take place next year.  The date for the 2013 Show/A.G.M. wil be 9th, June at the same venue. 

A reminder to the C.B.B.A members who have not yet renewed their membership.  The show season is now underway and exhibitors must be fully paid up members of the society to qualify to compete for the society specials.

Even if you are not an exhibitor the society still welcomes  you,  we need to keep the clearwing variety going forward.
