North East Budgerigar Society
The North East Budgerigar Society of South Australia Inc (NEBS) was formed in 1974 and is located in Adelaide, South Australia. NEBS is one of several clubs in Adelaide and enjoys a strong and enthusiastic membership made of members from all walks of life. The majority of its members live on the northern side of Adelaide.
a). To promote feelings of good fellowship and sportsmanship among its own members and all other persons interested in the Budgerigar.
b). To promote the improvement of existing varieties, and the production of new ones.
c). Endeavour to promote, encourage and stimulate the breeding and keeping of Budgerigars.
d). To collect and publish information relative to Budgerigars, or other matters of interest to members of the society.
Meetings of the NEBS are held at the Kilburn Community Hall, 49 Le hunt St., Kilburn, on the second Wednesday of each month at 8.00pm. At these meetings guest speakers keep members up to date with the latest developments in the budgerigar fancy.
At most of these meetings a night show competition is held with the aim of showing and preparing birds for Major Shows (unless the temperature is forecast to be above 32 degrees).
Members compete in the following categories: Open, Intermediate, Novice and Junior. Prizes are awarded for the best bird in each category and also for the “ Best Bird of the Night “ in a designated variety.
Some monthly meetings are devoted to Mini Shows and Club Auctions and our December meeting is devoted to members enjoying a Christmas celebration function.
An annual Syllabus is issued to members showing the events for the next tweve months.
A number of major shows are held during the year (weather policy applies) and the objectives of these shows are to promote the hobby and the improvement of birds amongst our members.
All shows held during the year are open to any person who is a member of the NEBS and several of these shows are also open to all other members of the BCSA.
Membership is open to anyone interested in the breeding & showing of budgerigars and members receive a newsletter six times a year.
Membership fees commence at $ 15.00 for a single and are due and payable on the 1st January each year.
Various office bearers run the Club with the primary objectives of the Club in mind.
These office bearers consist of: Patron, President, Vice President, Secretary, Assistant Secretary, Treasurer, Ring Officer, Trading Table Officer, Show Manager, Assistant Show Manager and another four committee members.
The NEBS is an affiliate of the Budgerigar Council of South Australia Inc (BCSA) and has three Delegates on the Council who are able to continually update members on matters pertaining to State & National matters.
