6th Regional Show

London & Southern Counties B.S. Specialist & Rare Variety Open Show

Sunday 10th October

The event was staged at the Open Show venue of the Centenary Hall, Wheelers Lane, Smallfield, Surrey.  Judges for the day were Geoff Capes (Whitewings) and Andy Thorpe (Yellow-wings) who replaced Trevor Clarkson due to illness.  Generally speaking   the show was a great success with a total of 249 entries for the eleven Challenge Certificates up for competition, an increase on last year’s figures.  This Regional Show unfortunately did not prove as popular as those staged in past years, with only four C.B.B.A. exhibitors benching a total of fifteen Clearwings.  Best of Colour Yellow-wing, Best Yellow-wing Any Age and Best Champion Yellow-wing Any Age went to a substantial Yellow-wing Light Green hen staged by Ghalib & Janice Al-Nasser.  The Best Yellow-wing Young Bird and Best Champion Yellow-wing Young Bird was a young cock belonging to Malcolm & Pam Freemantle. The C.C. for the Whitewings was awarded to a Whitewing Violet cock which was also Best Whitewing Any Age and Best Champion Whitewing Any Age went to the same partnership who completed the Whitewing clean sweep, by gaining the award for Best Whitewing Young Bird and Best Champion Whitewing Young Bird.  Vincent Salter from the Isle of Wight took all four awards in the Beginner section.

C.B.B.A. President Bill Gibson who had travelled down to the Show with Chairman Lyn Bancroft, presented C.B.B.A. Regional Show Medallions to the winning exhibitors.
