Bob Allen judged the 79 Rares, which had a drop in entry from last year despite the extra class for the Texas Clearbody.
The adult winner and best rare overall went to a well marked and nice type Texas Clearbody light green cock of Emma & Marstin Nee from the beginner section. Sue & Rod Clarke were second with their Easley Clearbody skyblue cock of good variety marking. Sam Wildes was third with a Texas Clearbody light green hen of good size.
Cy Thorne came on top in the young bird section with a nice deep masked Texas Clearbody grey green cock of good marking. Another Texas Clearbody and this time a stylish light green hen from Les Cutler was second followed by Pete Holidays slate hen of good length.
