Message by the President 1998
This year we are honoured to welcome amongst us the General Secretary of the
World Organization of Judges OMJ, Mr. Kes Maandag who. in a few days is
expected to be appointed General President of the World Ornithology
Organization, the COM. I am proud to be one of the first Presidents of the
affiliated Associations of the COM to congratulate Mr. Maandag and wish him
every success throughout his term of office, on behalf of our Association
Mr. Maandag is the first official who came along to supervise the running
National Exhibition. I hope, for the sake of our Association and its many
members, that both the organisation and the exhibits have reached the
standard and satisfied expectations.. On behalf of my Committee as well as
the members of the Association, I would like to express our appreciation to
Maandag for honouring us with his presence.
I would also like to express my heartfelt thanks to the many members who
worked so hard to erect the stands and to decorate them for the occasion in
couple of days. Of course, we cannot forget the generosity, of our many
sponsors. It would have been virtually impossible to organise a show of this
magnitude without their financial support.
We strive hard to enhance the exhibition and to make it more pleasing to the
general public who each year encourage us by attending in thousands to
these wonderful creatures. Suggestions to improve what we have already
achieved, are most welcome - wherever they may come from.
Finally, though by no means of little importance, a word of encouragement
also due to the exhibitors themselves. Only through their dedication and
devotion to the fancy of bird breeding are we offered the opportunity and
delight of admiring so many different species.
