RING SIZE UPDATE,
Following a complaint regarding this years ring size “E” being incorrect, I had them sent back to me and I forwarded them onto Avian ID, who on receiving them today (Wednesday) checked them and found them to be of the correct size of 3.10mm internal diameter. (Having already re-manufactured the new rings for members and sending them off on Monday).
As the rings are now embossed using a laser process as opposed to being engraved the way thickness is smaller, and if compared to 2020’s rings look smaller.
So please if you are in any doubt about the size check using a 3mm drill before informing me as the Ring Secretary.

The Junior Members plan explained –
A proposal was due to be put to the AGM regarding Junior Membership and rings.
The proposal was that all Junior Members be given free Membership and rings.
However, due to the Coronavirus the meeting was obviously cancelled.
Therefore, the Committee made a decision that all junior members who have paid for 2020 will have their membership carried over to 2021, therefore must register with the Membership Secretary in writing and include their date of birth.
Any new junior members should pay their membership in the usual way for 2021.
On receipt of their application they will be sent their ring order form.
In line with the ZFS rules this proposal will be included on the agenda for the 2021 AGM, to come into effect from 2022.
It was also proposed that all existing and new junior members be given 20 free rings from 2021.
The free ring allocation is only for the current year (it cannot be carried over).
The junior member will be responsible for paying all postage and Paypal fees were applicable.
The free rings are only for the first year of joining.
There is a Ring order form specifically for junior members with details of prices if more than 20 rings are required.
AREA SHOW DATES – 2021 Onwards
Please take a look at this attachments which shows you a 4 year plan for the Area Shows.This has been agreed with all the designated reps of the societies. You will notice that the ZFS Club Show has been moved towards the end of the season . This was done as a lot of fanciers suggested it. My thanks to all the Areas involved , in making this a far better way of spreading these shows around. I do hope you all agree that this was also done with the birds in mind . As you can see the Stafford show date is on its normal week.
