Welcome to the 2012 Annual Fall Fair

Here I REPORT Adrien Taylor invitation: On behalf of the Executive and the Show Committee, I would like to extend a warm invitation to all of our members and their family to come out and visit their fellow members at the Annual Show in Monroe Washington, the weekend of October 20 and 21st. This is your time to come out and socialize with other bird people from the state and especially those from out-of-state. This is the one occasion when knowledge is the Key. Our Judges bring with them a wide range of knowledge on birds whether it is the breed or species that is currently in your home. To add to this knowledge base, you will have the opportunity to meet, talk, and learn from other bird people attending the event. I also would like to extend a personal invite to all members to exhibit a bird or more than one. It is an opportunity like no other to learn about your particular breed of bird and see how it compares with birds from other members. If you are a novice don’t worry, there will be awards for Novices and you never know, I have seen Novices win the Show on their first time out. The C.C.B.A. needs support when staging these events, and that support is from you the member. Whether it is by showing, selling, or just attending the Show, you will be supporting your club. I hope to see and meet all members at the Monroe Show this October 20th and 21st with one of you winning the Best in Show with your Bird. Hope to See You There Yours in the Fancy Brian Johannson Show Manager Cascade Canary Breeders Association
