The National Modena Club


Great  Britain


The National Modena Club of Great Britain Club Show 30th Oct. 2021

The Club Show held on the 30th October 2021 was also the date of the club's A.G.M. and what a great day it turned out to be for newly elected President

Gary Marsden.

In addition to accepting his new role as President of this prestigious club, Gary also was the winner of Best in Show, Supreme Modena with his Adult Bronze Tri Gazzi Cock.

A proud day for Gary Marsden with BIS and  newly elected President

It was good see hard working Secretary Martin Coyle taking one of the top honours, Best Schietti, with his Black Adult cock. Having missed our show in 2020 due to covid 19, it was a great day for all members in attendance, all made possible by the hard work put in by the secretary and members of the committee.

As you can see above the raffle prizes alone made the day out worth the trip! The whole day was without doubt a huge compliment to Show Secretary Debbie Maltby and her partner Graham Lowe. Peter Davis was on hand to auction the donation birds which was both a credit to the members who donated and a significant bonus for the club. One valued member who unfortunately could not be there on the day was Dennis Thornton, the editor of both the club's Newsletters and Bulletins. Dennis does a tremendous amount of work behind the scenes and the club is all the richer for his contributions.

A complete list of Trophy Winners from The national Modena Club of Great Britain show, as taken from the November Newsletter produced as always by the very industrious Dennis Thornton. as you can see, when Dennis does a job it is done with pride and is a credit to him.

Taken from November Newsletter:

Below, President Gary Marsden presenting Martin Coyle with his ‘Club Master Breeder Certificate. The Committee had only awarded Martin this a week earlier.
Martin has a very impressive record of wins which included 182 NPA wins, that does not include the 10 he has won today. Oh, and he has also won 3 ‘Supreme
Modena Awards’. I note from the AGM minutes that the members at that meeting voted unanimously to nominate him for an

‘NPA Master Breeder award’.
This will be at end of the Season when no doubt he will have won more.

Taken from November Newsletter:

The photo left shows the President Gary Marsden presenting Roy Nicholson with his ‘Club Master Breeder Certificate’. The Committee had awarded Roy this last year, but thisis the first opportunity there has been to award it. Roy like Martin has a very impressive record of wins which included 99 NPA wins. Oh, and he has also won That Prestigious ‘Supreme Modena Award’.
Roy was put forward for an NPA Master Breeder Award in 2020 year however we still await a reply from the NPA. DT
