OVERCROWDING BOTH PER CAGE AND
Everyone should now know that we have to assure the public
and the authorities that we are experts in our field, and we know best how to
care for our birds. At Newark
in general the birds are displayed in good order, but there are still a few
borderline cases. I am sure the R.S.P.C.A. the local council and the extremists
will be in attendance and ignorance will be no excuse. At Newark we pride ourselves in the fact that we
are a bird breeders show run by bird breeders, please keep up the good work.
Cages that are painted or of non-porous materials are preferred but are not always practical. However they must not show signs of previous inhabitation ie. they should be cleaned between shows.
FOOD AND WATER
Food and water must be provided whilst on display to the public.
There must be enough perches and perch length so that all
birds in the cage can perch at the same time with a reasonable space between
each bird. Perches must be sighted so that there is at least 50mm 2inches head
and tail space from ceiling, floor and walls. Food and water must be accessible
at all times when on display. Cages must not show signs of previous
inhabitation i.e. they must be clean and especially cleaned between shows as a
preference they should be gloss painted or of non- porous material. Standard
show cages may be used as long as they are correct for the type of bird
displayed and not more than one pair per cage (2 pairs for foreign finches
Tables should not be stacked too high there will be a
safety limit of 2.15meters 7foot a measuring stick will be used and any cage
that stands higher than that mark will have to be removed. The table height is
80cm or 31.5inches so the maximum your tables can be stacked is 1.35meters or
53inches. This is a health and safety rule and is not negotiable; cages that
are stacked must also be stable and not prone to toppling.
The above guidelines apply
to members tables and trade stands that use exhibition tables.
TRADE STAND BOOKING
After a meeting with the local council it was decided that
anyone booking more than three private tables should be considered a dealer.
This means any one person cannot be allocated more than three tables with the
exception of the following. Parrot society area organizers, Leicester and
county parakeet soc and charity table.
Booking for the following show will still be allowed on the day for
anyone re-booking their space. i.e. if you have a table or trade stand that day
you can book the same space or table Nos only for the next show.
All un-allocated space will be on a first come first served basis by post after
the day of the show.
I am sure everyone will agree to abide by these rules, as I am sure
most people already do.
Please if you
do not agree the simple answer is donít come !!!
