Tom Q & Tw, the hall was packed! 980 birds entered and 98% turn out on the day. Great to see so many people coming. I know we were caught for time for viewing but judges wanted to make sure all birds were judged properly. Some great birds on show they said and were very pleased with the quality. We're so thankful to everyone who came and exhibited. I took today to recover but will have results up in the next few days on our website and Facebook page.

Flock Master, thank you very much too for your prizes for our raffle! It is greatly appreciated.
