ACS 2022 New Judging Format 12.2.22

The Committee has approved a new judging format for the upcoming ACS 2022. The new format will be to engage a number of judges relative to the amount birds expected, for this year it will be 4. Historically they would judge a section each but we have voted for a format where all judges will judge classes rather than a section. The Judges will start at class 1 and work their way through the field. Crucially when each special is to be selected then a minimum of 3 judges will select each special.

 

We see the advantages of this system as per below,

 

 - All specials are selected by 3 judges increasing furthermore the likelihood of the best bird being selected for all specials.

 - All judging finishes at the same time removing the circumstance of some judges having many more entries in a section.

 - OMJ judge/s will judge across all sections and have an input into the majority specials giving us and the exhibitors more value from the engagement.

 

We see this as a positive step forward in providing the exhibiting members with a more democratic process with the selection of specials at the ACS. We hope this is seen as another positive step forward by the CCBA.

I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all the committee , past and present , and members of the association for their help , guidance and friendship during my term as chairman .

Thankfully Simon Meredith has stepped forward to fill the vacant position , so over the last day the committee has agreed to co-opt Simon onto the committee to become chairman . Simon has been a member of the association for many years and is also a leading judge , and I`m sure you will all join with me in wishing every success to Simon .

CCBA Secretary - 03.01.2022

It is with regret that Gary Lewis has  informed me that he wishes to relinquish his roles on the CCBA committee namely Secretary & Treasurer from 31st January 2022. Gary has done a superb job for both the club & fancy in commitment to both. He took over the reins from Ken Shelton & has implemented too many changes & tumultuous times to mention. Gary on behalf of the CCBA “thank you for all your hard work”. 

 

I am very pleased that Rob Braddock has stepped up to the challenge and will assume the roles of both Secretary & Treasurer, with immediate effect and can be contacted via the NEW CCBA email address which is ccba1947@outlook.com which has been updated on the website to avoid any confusion. 

 

We are also looking for any members new or existing who have the time to contribute a few hours a week to join the committee in various roles, please contact any committee member to express your interest. 

 

As we enter the new year I know many of you will be at various stages of conditioning/pairing up of your birds, I wish you every success achieving your aims & goals and look forwards to seeing you all in a 🤞Covid free environment this coming show season.
