Graham Lowe, the President of the NMC, organised the presentation of an award in the form of a glass plaque to Roger for his 50 year membership of our club, the time, effort and judging he has undertaken promoting the English Modena.
In addition to this Roger has helped towards
maintaining and improving the overall quality
of our birds.
The plaque was presented by long time friends
of Roger, Trevor and Daryl Richardson, at the
French Modena National show held in Thiers,
Roger is undoubtedly the elder statesman of
the European Modena hobby. He has been
involved with the European Modena Show
since it's early days, the beautiful, silver
Guillemot Rosebowl [ pictured above ] is
awarded for Best Modena at the European
show, which takes place every three years
in a different European country.
Roger has also been given Life Memebership of
the National Modena Club of Great Britain.
We look forward to him judging, once again, at the British Pigeon Show Society show held at Pickering in early December 2008.
