The year 2019 will bring about the end of our 3 year trial, on where the Future Champions Shows are best placed for all the Novice and Intermediate breeders. For the past 2 years from around Tasmania, this show was incorporated into the three clubs summer shows, on a rotating basis 2017 NTBS, 2018 TBS, 2019 Coastal. Two date the trial has been a success. After the Coastal club’s show in February the Council will do a review of the last 3 years, this will include a survey of all exhibitors so the BCT is best placed on the success of this trial. After this has been completed Council will take the recommendation to the 2019 AGM.
The trial was brought about by the Novice and Intermediate exhibitors requesting the BCT do something to reduce the burden of having four shows in a five week period. It also means the show will once again be staged in all three of the State Zones. We also believe that it should lead to greater numbers of birds in these two divisions which has been the case to date. This also should result in more qualifying shows, and greater movement of exhibitors moving up in show status.
The BCT and associated societies have many shows, sales, auctions etc., around the state throughout the year, so please visit the 'Schedule Book 2019' page for dates in 2019. This page also has downloads for BCT ring order and show entry forms.
