Colwyn Show is September 27th

H'Lo Everybody! :hi:

The Colwyn Showcase is on Saturday, September 27th this year. It is located just outside Fergus, Ontario. A few people showed EOs last year, and we have been given permission to show them again this year. Entries are due soon, so please get 'em in! EOs get listed under the Mediteranean class - I think the category is something like 65b - Basque.

When I talked the organizers into letting us show last year, I promised we'd always have a few breeders bringing birds. I don't have a lot this year - most of my older birds are in moult, and my youngsters are pretty young. I'm planning on a cock and a few pullets - but they are all gorrias. We get a lot more interest when people bring Marradunas.

If anybody would like to show but hasn't done it before and is nervous about it, I'd be happy to help you through it. =D It's a beautiful show in a lovely location, and there are always some truly champion quality birds there. As well as an auction.... 

And one of the judges is Elton Minnich, the same fella that was so helpful last year. I'd love to show him some progress!

So who's up for a show?? Let's show everybody that:

:EO:

Re: Colwyn Show is September 27th

Hopefully our Ontario EO owners will be taking advantage of this opportunity, it's great to see a show that has created a class just for the Basques! I know if I were closer I would definitely attend. Feedback from a judge on your birds can be very helpful and I always learn something. Plus it's a great opportunity for feed back on our draft SOP :thumbs:
