Gloster Celebrations at 2021 Portknockie CBS Show

On Sunday 21st November 2021 Portknockie CBS held it’s open show in the Cullen Bowling and Tennis Club.

Over the past few years the Gloster section has seen an increase in entries from 50 in 2015 to this years entry of just under 150, that is without a show in 2020. Since our last show in 2019 we have 3 new Gloster breeders and 1 returning after a few years out of the fancy.

Two of the new fanciers didn’t have time to get ready for showing and the returning fancier showing a few birds from a first breeding season. With a good breeding season in front of them it all bodes well for another increase in 2022.

Portknockie CBS now has the largest show of Glosters in Scotland for which we are really proud. This year our judge was Dave Hobart who made the 600 [Six Hundred] mile round trip from Carlisle and he brought Robbie Wright with him who was making an even longer trip from Middlesbrough, just for the famous Cullen Skink.

Given our geographical position, 60 miles east of Inverness on the Moray Firth coast we really appreciate Dave for doing the honours and Robbie for his continued support and the donation of a fine pair of Glosters, which went for £100 by silent action.

Best Gloster went to Sandy Hay with a nice Unflighted Buff Corona Hen and Sandy also had Best Opposite head with a Flighted TPD Consort Hen.

Best Cinnamon went to Donnie Bain from Wick with a Unflighted Consort cock making the long journey worthwhile. Best Yellow went to Michael Anderson from Dufftown with an Unflighted Consort Cock. Best White went to Jason Miller from Bonnyrigg near Edinburgh.

The only disappointing part of the show was the absence of Novice and Junior exhibitors, but I think most shows struggle in this area, I’m afraid we can’t compete with the computer games so we will just have to live with it.
