BEST IN SHOW JUDGE (rabbits)

It is pleasing to confirm that DAPHNE BRASS BROWN will be the Best In Show judge for 2022.

Currently she is chair person of the Trustees of the British Rabbit Council and is a past President of the same organisation.

MEMBERSHIP    

The membership fee is to remain the same as for the last 11 years at £5 each or £10 for a partnership/stud regardless of how many people are involved. Junior exhibitors continue to be FREE but will still be eligible for all the benefits (to save any misunderstanding this FREE offer applies to Junior Exhibitors – not children of adult exhibitors who want the badge. Extra badges can be purchased for £2 each or £3.00 if posted). There are 6 principal reasons for being a member – apart from supporting the London:-

  • COLLECTORS SPECIAL ‘52nd SHOW’ METAL BADGE
  • ELIGIBLE FOR THE GUARDSMAN’S GAMBLE CLASS (open to exhibits that are 4th in the members breed section class)
  • MEMBERS LUCKY PEN DRAW FOR £100
  • BEST 4 MEMBER’S EXHIBITS JUDGED ON STAGE (P.M. £50, £30, £20, £10)
  • VOUCHERS COURTESY OF FUR & FEATHER
  • WINNERS OF THE MEMBERS CLASS IN EACH BREED SECTION GET FREE 2023 MEMBERSHIP.

Below is a list of all those members who qualified in 2021 for free 2022 membership. As in previous years the badges will not be posted at any stage because they are not ideal for going through the postal system as they would make the envelope too thick to be sent at ordinary letter rate. Any winners listed below not seen prior to the London will be able to collect their badges at the show. 2021 winners of the member’s classes who are entitled to FREE 2022 membership are:-
