Variety & Colour BS - 2011 Club Show
Compiled by Gh
Bob Allen, our hard working Membership Secretary & Editor, at our stand at the Club Show
It was very pleasing to see another increase in entry over the past three years in the Rare Variety section to 81 (73 in 2010, 57 in 2009 & 58 in 2008) but the entry in the Any Other Colour dropped to 56 (65, 59 & 47 respectively).
Philip Dye judged this section and awarded the adult CC to the Norwood Studs super Texas Clearbody Light Green hen (same bird that won in 2010) benched in good condition with good size and depth of mask. It was a strong bird and good example of the variety. John Dunnell was second with another Texas Clearbody Yellowface Skyblue cock of good quality and good variety content that went on to win our clubs Best Rare Any Age award. Another Texas Clearbody cock was placed third in the colour run down for Emma & Marstin Nee.

The young CC went to the World Champion Les Martin with a Texas Clearbody Skyblue hen with a nice face and staged in good condition that went on to win the overall Best Rare in Show by a member. Daemon Mullee staged a lovely faced Slate hen staged in good condition that was placed in second position. Geoff Tillsons Texas Clearbody Light Green cock was third best.

Any Other Colour
John Lee judged this section and only the Greywing, Lacewing and Anthracite come under our umbrella in this section. The Anthracites were exhibited again this year thanks to Alison Carr, A. Wood and ourselves who benched adults & young birds in cocks & hens.
The Any Age Best of Colour winner was a quality White Cobalt cock benched by Chris & Mary Snell and staged in good condition. A large Lacewing Yellow cock benched by Tom & Andrew Luke was in second place of good colour and condition. A good quality Greywing Grey cock from David Turner was placed in third place.
The Luke partnership came to the fore in the young bird line up with a lovely browy Lacewing Yellow hen staged in good condition. Roger Day occupied second spot with a Yellow hen of good size and condition. This was followed by Brian Sweetings Lacewing White cock of good colour and size.
