The 2012 Annual Show held on 7 July was a fantastic success. Exhibitors travelled from as far north as Taree and East Maitland in NSW and from all over Victoria which swelled the numbers from 153 last year to 237 this year. Mr. Warren Schelbach from Warwick in Qld adjudicated at this show and was very impressed with the number of entries and the quality of birds. Brett Batcheldor (Chief Steward), Mark Lee and Hayden Stephens (Show Manager) took all measures to ensure the show went as smoothly as possible and the day went without a hitch.
It was very pleasing to see an excellent number of entries in the Croad classes. 19 Standard and 9 Bantam entries. The largest class numbers were the Australian Langshan Bantam Black Pullets (46) and Bantam Black Cockerels (30). Bird in Show was won by Sonya Ford with her Bantam Black Cockerel and Reserve Bird in Show was J & C Anderson's Standard Black Cockerel..
