After five days of fes­tiv­i­ties that com­prised the 2018 Na­tional Budgeri­gar Cham­pi­onships held at Pen­rith Pan­thers Event Mar­quee; budgeri­gar ex­hibitors, lo­cal and over­seas vis­i­tors have re­turned home to breed that cham­pion budgeri­gar and pre­pare for the 2019 Na­tional Cham­pi­onship. The 2019 Na­tional will be or­gan­ised by South Queens­land Budgeri­gar So­ci­ety and held in Bris­bane. NB. Pho­tographs of Logue win­ning birds at this years Na­tional Cham­pi­onship are shown within this ar­ti­cle.

This years’ Na­tional Cham­pi­onship was won by Vic­to­ria, after hav­ing been neck and neck with New South Wales up un­til judg­ing of the last few Va­ri­eties, when Vic­to­ria drew away for the win. Na­tional qual­i­fied judges at this years 44th Cham­pi­onship came from South Queens­land, North Queens­land, New South Wales and Ger­many. Hills Branch mem­bers were rep­re­sented within many of the as­pects of or­gan­is­ing and run­ning the cham­pi­onship, namely; reg­is­tra­tion and ad­min­is­tra­tion, com­puter ser­vices, com­pe­ti­tion stew­ards, trans­port ser­vices, tour ad­min­is­tra­tion and fa­cil­i­ties man­age­ment.

Young Bird and An­nual Shows for 2018/19 will get into full swing dur­ing Septem­ber with the North­side Branch Show be­ing held at St Ives Showground, St Ives., on the 9th Septem­ber 2018. This show will al­low res­i­dents of the Hills to view qual­ity budgeri­gars within close prox­im­ity to the Hills Area. A great day out for the fam­ily, with no en­try or park­ing fees. Other shows will be held within the New­cas­tle Area dur­ing Septem­ber.
