The October meeting was held on 1st October 2019. The night commenced with a minutes silence for Ian McEwan who sadly passed away recently. The large attendance were treated to a video link with Peter Thurn who spoke about his method to improve the Fallow variety. Peter showed the quality of Fallows and split Fallows needed to move the variety forward. Troy Holmes then gave a presentation on how he selects and pairs, highlighting the need to continually 'double up' features within the birds to become prepotent in that feature. The evening closed with a talk from Ian Marshall on the Lacewing variety and his thoughts on the ideal pairings. A very interesting evening and our thanks go to Peter, Troy and Ian on making it a very interesting and informative night.

Importantly, to qualify as a status movement event, this show is open to members of any club in SA, not just BSSA or NEBS members. We are the host club for 2019, so please get your entries in. Also, remember that if your nest feather birds are not quite ready or have broken their cap, then you are able to enter older 2019 rung birds in the “Young Birds” class. If any member has not received their schedule, you can download it from the 2019 UBC Challenge page. Entries close on Saturday 19th October so please be quick and get your entries in. Hopefully we avoid the hot weather policy being required, although spring temperatures can be unpredictable, so please be familiar with the policy on the show schedule.
