The Scottish Group Zone ( CCBA)

 

Annual Show 2016

 

The Scottish Group Zone held another very successful show with just over 120 exhibits, although down on previous years it was reported by some members that their show team was somewhat depleted  due to birds moulting far later than normal. In spite of this, support from members,

particularly those who travelled longer distance  such as Carlisle, Cumbria, Darlington and surrounding areas is very much appreciated.

 

At the show hall on a cold dreich day, everyone arriving was treated to a hot drink, bacon or sausage roll expertly prepared by Joe Bott and Robert Craig. This was followed later with Sharon’s now famous home-made soup, scotch pie and beans all ‘on the house.’

 

Our sincere thanks to our sponsors DBM Scotland and Coxydene Farm Foods. A special word of thanks to Falkirk Council for their support throughout the year. Our appreciation also to Alex Derks our club secretary for his ongoing commitment and hard work on club activities.

 

The CCBA Scottish Group would also wish to show their appreciation to top flight judge Peter Finn who expertly judged the exhibits to his usual high standards.

The Scottish Group Zone (CCBA)



Annual Show 2014


The Scottish Group Zone held another successful show with over 160 exhibits that fully merits its reputation as the ‘Friendly Show.’ The meeting of old and new friends is legendary with exhibitors travelling from all over the country to Scotland’s Premier Colour Canary venue, some from as far afield as Manchester, Cumbria and Carlisle – their support, along with everyone else, is greatly appreciated.

A welcoming feature on a cold December day was the plentiful supply of Sharon Meichan’s homemade soup. This was supplemented  with hot pies, bacon and sausage rolls prepared by food experts Joe Bott, Bill & Lorraine Maley.

Our sincere thanks to DBM Scotland, Coxydene Farm Foods and the International Ornithological Association for their sponsorship. Also, a big thank you to Falkirk District Council whose support is paramount to the club’s success.

Congratulations to Joe Bott who was awarded the Canary Colour Breeders Association (CCBA) annual Presidents Award in recognition of conspicuous service to the Association.

The club members also express their sincere appreciation to Alex. Derks, Scottish Group Zone secretary for all his hard work and dedication to the club activities through a period of change over the past year.

The CCBA Scottish Group would also like to express their sincere thanks to Geoff Walker who gave up his time to judge the exhibits to his usual extremely high standards. The members would also like to express their thanks for his time and patience explaining the reasons for his decisions and generally sharing some of his vast knowledge of Coloured Canaries.
