The next morning, after a leisurely breakfast we were taken to the show hall. Everyone was busy entering birds, organising the judging stands and doing all the preparation required for such a great show. Around 1500 birds were entered for competition.
The show hall was the upper part of a large two storey building. The ground floor hosted the sales area, a large selection of bids and equipment were on sale. It was a hive of activity and great to see. My fellow judges and I all thought that the show hall was very good. Some exhibitors later told us that they much preferred to previous hall. I cannot comment other than to say that the cost of the Hall has to be the the main consideration. Every event has to pay for itself?
The judging began around 11-30. Each of us had two hardworking stewards who knew their job well and were very attentive to our requirements. At around 5 pm we were ready to select our best seven. The class winners were all outstanding birds. The selection went well, all of us in agreement with the final choice of winners. The results were as follows
The judging and overall presentation of the birds was much improved by the use of foldaway show cages. These cages are the same size as the Yorkshire Canary Club standard. They were easy to handle to examine and compare the exhibits, a positive move forward by the TYCC in my opinion.
How good were the birds? In my opinion the overall standard was excellent . All the buff birds and the green marked yellow birds had excellent feather quality. The clear yellows had a hard feather.
The following morning we returned to a busy show hall and sales area. We judges were available to talk to exhibitors and give an opinion where required. The atmosphere was pleasant and the exhibitors knowledgeable.
The presentation followed. All the show an class winners receiving trophies.
Throughout the whole weekend we were treat extremely well. The organisation was top class It was an honour to be part of such a wonderful event. Our thanks go to Mussa, Hakan and everyone associated with the TYCC. I would urge all Yorkshire breeders in turkey to support them along with the organisers of other shows in your county. It can be hard work running a club, I know, I help run two myself!Steve Edmond
