Bird  Raffle

As discussed at the recent Committee meeting, I am planning to organise a bird raffle at the ZFS Club show in October to raise funds for the show.

I will be putting a request for donated pairs or singles on the ZFS Website/Facebook page ,as well as asking well known exhibitors if they would like to contribute.

Each pair/single will have the name of the Donator on the front of the cage, and all tickets will be placed in separate boxes relevant to the donated birds.

This will be run separately from the Normal sales section.

The cost of each ticket will be £5 per ticket, and any amount of tickets can be purchased. The amount of tickets sold in each box will not be made known to the buyer of any said ticket.

No numbers will be used, just the names of the purchaser of the ticket to go in the relevant box.

It is open to everyone, even if you cannot attend the show, but payment must be made before the show if you cannot attend, and your instructions included.

The draw will be made at 2.30 as we have limited time before the Main presentations at 3.30

If anyone would like to donate a pair/single or purchase a ticket then please contact me

Many thanks – Peter Cannan

Following concerns from members regarding the show cage drinkers and the alterations to the front rail, the matter was discussed at the last Committee meeting.

It was pointed out that some exhibitors have lacquered show cages and to make the changes would make it impossible the match the original finish

The following proposal was put forward

That all exhibitors to use the CO20 algae blue flow-maticdrinkers. The D cup drinker, holder and escape wire MAY be left in place if so wished{ but it is not to be used instead of the exterior drinker}

Any entry without an external drinker, will automatically be disqualified from that class.

It is then down to each individual exhibitor to decide whether they wish to make the alterations to or replace the front rail.

Please Note – There is no time limit on the use of existing show cages, and there are no plans to phase them out.

This was duly agreed on unanimously.

Frank Dawson has been in touch with 3 manufacturers of the show cage and they are happy to build future cages without the drinker drawer.

I hope this now clarifies the position
