  1. Stafford Show Wristbands

    think this is a little tricky ! There is still 6 weeks to the show & in that time the alert could be over be over . Cancell too soon & a lot will be disapointed if the alert is over & show does not go ahead . However there's nothing wrong with planning for it not happening . But it may not be untill 2 weeks before the show that DEFRA will be able to give a definitive answer as to whether the show should be cancelled or not as it may not be clear as how the outbreak of Avian flu is spreading or not as the case might be

    they are on the WFS page but there's a new page waxbills UK https://www.facebook.com/groups/322602617933901/ which is open to all . But I think perhaps my post was not clear enough as the adds were wanted not sales

    unfortuneately the topic on FS is no longer available , but you are correct about costs being part of the problem , but it was not the whole problem . As for the FF site I seem to recollect that last year it was on the balcony & difficult to find . I'm not certain what the solution is , but it might be to make a block booking rather than trying to book a section , but that would mean members registering with FF admin for tables before the tables are booked

    Sorry to slightly contradict you as it would seem that to a certain degreee it's a case of 6 of one & half a dozen of the other . Shaun is very flexible over the booking for the FF section but I seem to recollect that in March he was struggling up to the last minutes to fill the area , and the PS start organising table locations 3-4 months ahead of a show , so if we look to book a section 1-2 months before a show it becomes difficult The situation with FSSUK is more to do with the new restricion on what birds can be sold , which has led to a falling out,& FS now only attend the Spring Show. However WFS whose birds are are also affected by the restrictions will be attending as they have come to an agreement with the PS. Basically I think that if FF is to have a section @ the PS shows we need to start planning & negotiating with them before the show tickets go on sale which usually @ the previous show eg tickets for the National are on sale @ the summmer show , so we'd need to start planning for the National @ or just after the Spring Show
