Seeking Show Secretary
Footscray & District Poultry Club Incorporating Sussex Club of Australia Inc. has for over 50 years been providing poultry shows for exhibitors to compete. Purebred poultry breeders from all corners of Victoria and even from interstate meet up to discuss and admire the diverse array of entries. These shows have been administrated by volunteers, giving of their time and effort, contributing to likeminded poultry enthusiasts, a basis for their hobby of “Purebred Poultry Exhibition”
Following several losses of dedicated club organisers over the last few years, we are faced with not holding a show this year, purely because we cannot obtain a member experienced enough to perform as our Show Secretary. This is extremely disappointing as we are keen to continue facilitating poultry shows.
Footscray Poultry Club is privileged to have Bacchus Marsh Poultry Pavilion, Clubrooms, and a prosperous bank account at our convenience. We will continue holding poultry related events, until we can build club up again.
We are committed to continue holding our shows under the guiding principles of our affiliated body, Victorian Poultry Fanciers Association (P.S.B.E.V.), using accredited judges, judging to Australian Poultry Standards Second Edition. We are not interested in approaches from any “break away” groups.
If any one out there considers that they may be capable of taking on this task of Show Secretary, please let club know as soon as practical. If possible we would like to hold our Annual Show on Saturday 22nd July 2017.
