ANNOUNCEMENTS

Good morning NBS family,

As we close out the year 2020, none too soon, in most opinion there are still many things to be thankful for in our lives, like our wonderful birds and the many gifts they bring to us. Our health, and hopefully continued health for all our friends and family. Through our interaction with our birds, gifts like friendships, competition, passion and teamwork come to mind. As we move through 2021, let’s hope we can look back on 2020 and be thankful that one of the things that keeps us together is our love for the birds and the goals to keep breeding, showing, competing and supporting our organization and exhibition community.

That said, no one knows what the coming year will bring. I won’t even get into the ugly political climate we now experiencing with fault on BOTH sides of the aisle, instead I choose to focus on the National Bird Show and other events in our hobby. I know we were all saddened and disappointed that we could not host our 2020 show. There was an emptiness in all of us that we hope we don’t have to endure too much longer. What does that mean for the 2021 show? I can’t honestly answer that at this time. I believe we need to see how this pandemic keeps playing out before we make any real decisions but I also realize we have to make a decision soon if there is a likelihood of a show this year.

Behind the scenes I am working with a few NBS committees. We are looking at the possibility of a show and what that means. Financially, we have to make sure a show this year is a viable option. If it’s a failure (financially) it could certainly be our last, and no one wants that. Utmost, we have an obligation to keep the health and safety of our members and their families at the forefront. Our hobby is an aging hobby. Many of our members are in the “at risk” age category. It would have been mistake for NBS to host a show last year. Frankly that still holds true at this time. I personally believe that hosting any large gathering, like a show (even a local show) in the near future is irresponsible. We must think of one another. There is time to compete in shows in the future. Let’s kick Covid’s ass so we don’t have it lingering around for years.

NBS will do our best to weigh the options for a show later this year. We are hopeful that we can develop a solution that works. Hopefully 2021 will bring us some sense of normalcy but only time will tell. Look for a show report newsletter in your mailbox soon. Then we will work on a special addition of the newsletter that gives insight into the viability of a 2021 show.

So join me in wishing for a better 2021. I pray we all get to see one another this year. Please be safe and don’t get caught up in the day to day stress. This is bound to get better soon.

Yours in the Hobby,

Gary
