OVERSEAS JUDGE – RUUD BAKER

Thursday evening 13 October I made the crossing to England after the invitation for the Judging at the IGBA which was a great honour to be able to perform the judging on the IGBA with 4 others in the motherland of the Gloster.

After arriving on a sunny Friday morning in the UK a nice 2.5 hour drive ahead towards Nuneaton after arriving at the Chase Hotel a small misunderstanding, they had no reservation under the IGBA for 2 nights for me, after some calling around with Bob and Steve found the problem they had noted a wrong date/month.

After a good healthy night’s sleep Saturday morning and after a good English breakfast at 10.00 we went to the show hall. When I arrived there, several familiar faces that I had not seen for two years due to the covid problems. After the warm welcome and the various greetings from the various bird friends, the Judging started around 11:00 am, and with a Novice (sorry i forgot your name), and Marnix de Hont and yes the IGBA President Ludo Leanaers as stewards 3 men strong still.

The inspection went smoothly without any significant problems, nice class approved with high-quality to very good Glosters, and of which several have ended up in the specials.

And the Sunday after the award ceremony unfortunately had to say goodbye again and leave for the Netherlands again. It was a real pleasure to participate in this as a down-to-earth Dutchman.

With lots of bird greetings,

Ruud Baker
