National FInch Show - San Diego, CA - Update

Well, we're getting closer to the National Finch and Softbill show. We came SO close to not being able to have an event this year. While we're certainly going to miss the involvement of all the other species; thank goodness the San Diego Finch Club and the West Coast Zebra and Society Show Committee stepped up to the plate and said "NO WAY" ------ because of their dedication and hard work we ARE having a National FInch Show this year.

Have you decided which birds you're taking (or maybe you're just sneaking off for a great "birdy" weekend without your own birds to care for....!) Are your show cages cleaned, painted and ready to use? If not,, you'd better get them unpacked and dusted off!

If "showing" your birds is not something you've tried your hand at before and you have questions about what it entailsl, how to prepare your bird, or where to go to buy or borrow a show cage- make a post to THIS forum - there are any number of people willing to provide helpful advice.

Have you made your room reservations? The "special rate" is only available through October 26th - Call the Town and Country Resort and Convention Center in San Diego today to make your reservations if you've not done already (800-772-8527) - be sure to mention "Finch and Softbill Society of San Diego" in order to receive the discounted rate.

Here's the link for all the information you need to know about this event:

Do you have a grand child, niece, or nephew (or a mom, dad, or grandparent) with an interest in Aviculture? There are no age requirements for participation in this hobby!

If you're planning on arriving early or staying after the event has concluded - San Diego is home to any number of fun and exciting things to see and do. Many of them are within walking distance of the "Home Base" for this event! Aviary Tours are scheduled as part of the "official" events - so don't miss out on that opportunity to be a part of the tour, lunch, and a day spent with other enthusiasts.

Don't wait until the last minute to make your plans!
