JSSUK at the Bird Show Of The Year (BSTOY) - October 12th 2008
Staffordshire County Showground _Bingley Hall, Stafford.
Our Judge, Tom Broderick, was faced with the task of selecting the best Java from the 124 to grace the show bench that day. Some 4 hours later he chose an adult Normal, which was staged to perfection by Ken Jones, this bird was steady on the perches throughout its time on the judging stand, winning a class of 28. The same exhibitor completed the double with his adult Silver being selected as 2nd best bird in the show. 3rd Best Adult was Billy Hughes’s, White and Stuart Drury’s Normal taking 4th best adult.

The C.Y.O.B. Section was won by a great looking Silver staged by Frank Carter, followed by an Opal Isabel from the same stud. Norman Chapman’s White secured 3rd best and Tony Mulford’s Fawn filling the 4th spot. Best C.Y.O.B. Normal was staged by Brent Jackson, Best Adult Fawn by Wayne Brewer, who had made the long trip up to Stafford from Hampshire. Best Adult Pied and C.Y.OB. were staged by Dave Pover. Best Cream was Norman Chapman’s C.Y.O.B., the Adult Cream section winner was taken by Andy Dutton and Tommy Sisson’s Opal Isabel took the Adult award.

Billy Hughes had a clean sweep of the Agate classes, the same exhibitor’s C.Y.O.B. pair taking Best Pair, Frank Carter winning the Adult Pair Class. Best Junior Exhibit was shown by Luanna Elliott.

JSSUK at the Foreign Bird League Show - September 14th 2008
St Neot's, Cambridge.

The JSSUK attended the Foreign Bird League Show in Cambridge on 14th September where a total of 70 Javas were entered with 55 being benched on the day.

Fellow JSSUK members Tony Mulford, Dave Brown and new member B & J Rudling and a couple of non members were also showing their birds on the day.

Top honour on the day went to Dave Pover who took Best Adult with a fine Normal that he bred last year, Best CYOB with a young White and Best Java In Show with the previously mentioned Normal.

There was a bit of a let down on the day when some of the rosettes were not awarded and the 1st - 4th place prize cards that were taken to be awarded on the day were not given out as we were told “there wasn’t time to do it all” this after a lot of hard work done by our Patronage secretary Tommy Sisson to make sure they received them for the show!
