    2007 OIRCC Song Contest Information - :)

    2007 OIRCC/WCRA Song Contest Entry Form, Rules, Invitation
    Dec 12-15th 2007: OIRCC Song Contest & Show. This year we are hosting the West Coast Roller Assoication (WCRA) annual Show. The Judge for the 2007 OIRCC / WCRA Song Contest is Adolf Zager of Germany. We are happy to have him as our judge as always. Having a European Jugde is a tradition for the Oakland Club. In the last 25 years there have been many international renowned Roller Judges invited to hear and score the birds in the Oakland Show. These include Gebaur of Germany, Lode Teliens and AlFons Straetemans of Belgium. Tuesday Dec 11th is our day for entering birds for the show.We will be receiving birds from 9am to 7pm to accommodate those exhibitors that work or travel. Ship-ins will be given a little more time to get to the show as long as we know they are coming.  The week will be filled with judging, learning sessions, Song clinics and fun, culminating with our Pot Luck Awards Luncheon at 2:00 pm the Coral Reef Inn and Suites in Alameda CA. All fanciers and newcomers are welcome to come in and see what a Roller Canary Show is all about, and why they are the best sounding Song Canaries in the world. If you can possibly manage the time plan on stopping by the OIRCC suite for happy hour filled with general Song birds discussions and disagreements? (American Singer and Waterslagger groups are always welcome) All are welcome to attend one of two Song Clinics at 9:00am and 11:30am Saturday Dec 15th, 2007

    OIRCC Roller Canary Forum:

    The Roller Canary Forum is published by the Oakland International Roller Canary Club to improve the advancement, breeding, and exhibition of German Roller Canaries. Hopefully it will encourage the promotion of the fancy and instruct our members who are not able to attend our regular monthly meetings. The opinions of the writers do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the Club nor its officers. We encourage all members and readers to feel free to send in comments, questions, and any articles they would like to see printed. Judges, Master Breeders, Champion, Amateur, and Novice Breeders of Roller Canaries are cordially asked to contribute articles for publication. Please send us your ideas, articles, questions, comments, or criticism about the content provided in our Web site and in our Roller Canary Forum to jpagrella@earthlink.net (He is the forum moderater).
