Our club holds meetings on the second Sunday of each month, starting at 2.00pm and concluding around 4.30pm. Our club is a not-for-profit community group consisting of members all with a common interest in poultry.
We rely on member input to provide monthly meetings, two Poultry Competition/Exhibitions, Early Show on the third Saturday in May and Annual Show on the fourth Saturday in July. We also offer two Helmsman Poultry Auctions each year.
All of these events operate on a "Getting back what you are willing to put in" basis. We require participants to "Join up and Join in" to make our club a successful organisation, so try to attend meetings and share in the work and the fun!!
If you have birds that you would like comment or advice on re mating or showing, bring them along for some member input.
We are always open to suggestions for an interesting topic or activity for these meetings, so let us know what activities you would like to participate in.
Come along to our next meeting, bring a friend or two, every-one is welcome.
Bring a plate to share with a cuppa at end of day.

Our group is a non-profit incorporated association of volunteers
We should consider ourseves priviliged to have so many regional Clubs hosting weekly shows across the State. Clubs all need support to provide you with your hobby. All membership money is minimal only and virtually only covers record keeping of such membership. Entry fees only basically cover the day.
Shows take an enourmous amount of club members, exhibitors like yourself, time and effort, giving you a show to participate in. Club Shows are not commercial ventures, and have no administration to carry the burden, existing only on like minded people all working together to provide this great hobby.
Each exhibitor must be prepared to put in equal to that which they receive or show participation will become a thing of the past. Seems a lot of Clubs are getting short on "hands on" members. Our hobby requires younger exhibitors to become more involved, stepping up and taking on more of the physical work along with all taking on a share of the administration side.
