I would like to thank the affiliated clubs for giving me the honour of being the chairman of the border convention.

The hobby has entered an era when clubs are struggling with low entries and fanciers getting older with very few youngsters taking up the hobby. Therefore my pledge to all involved in the fancy is that I will try my best to bring clubs together and look for ways to improve in all aspects of our precious hobby.

The committee have lots of ideas but need everyone to to pull together and look for a way forward.
We have a few new younger committee members adding to the existing committee making a good blend of enthusiasm and wisdom .

I would like to see all clubs home and abroad take advantage of our fabulous journal and website by sending our secretary Colin Egner photos, adverts, stories, ideas and information that we can publish for everyone to read which will help to promote your clubs. I also would like champions,novices and juniors to send in questions which will be answered by some of the most experienced and knowledgeable border men in the fancy.

With us all working together it will create a positive effect with better outcomes for everyone. So I look forward to the challenge ahead of us and with your help and support we can enjoy our hobby for years to come.
