Covid 19 Updates


25 March 2020

Hi everybody - we have just finished our Management Committee meeting at which we have made the decision in the light of the current situation to cancel the entire 2020 show season. The National scheduled to be held in New Plymouth is included in this but will now be moved to the 2021 show season. This is the ONLY 2020 show that will be transferred - Christchurch will now host the 2022 show & Palmerston North the 2023 National show. The rest of the clubs will use the 2021 dates sent out in last minutes (and which I will repeat with the minutes tomorrow)
It is not a decision taken lightly but is in the interest of the health of our members - a lot of whom are in the older age bracket.
Please pass this onto your members as soon as possible. The full minutes will be out tomorrow but I felt it was important to notify clubs as soon as possible especially those who were still planning (or hoping) to hold shows.
Regards June
Secretary NZ Federation of Bird Clubs
