IHS Anniversary- Members Bonus.

 IHS Anniversary Members Bonus.

As a means of saying ‘thank you’ to the members of the society, the Central Committee of the society would like to offer all of our fully paid up members, FREE ENTRY to our June and September Breeders Meetings in 2019, our 50th Anniversary Year.

You ask ‘why just June and September’ – The November meeting historically was organised and run for the benefit of the West Midlands and North East branches, the proceeds of that show originally going to the two branches.

As such, we felt it only proper that we keep the November show separate (More on that later).

And so, to gain free entry to either of the breeders meetings, you will need to bring along your 2019 membership card along with some other form of id.

PLEASE NOTE : The free entry is ONLY open to fully paid up members of the IHS and NOT affiliated societies of the FBH.  

Free entry to National Breeders Meetings.

 IHS Branch Members – free entry to National Breeders Meetings.

With effect from the November 2018 meeting, any FULL society member, who REGULARLY attends any specific branch of the IHS, and who wishes FREE ENTRY to any future National Breeders Meeting, should attend their branch at the monthly meeting IMMEDIATELY prior to the show they wish to visit (i.e. – if they wish to attend the November show, they must attend the October branch meeting). At that meeting they will be issued with a form of entry by the branch organiser, for entry to the show.

Please note, that this does NOT mean that they will not have to queue. 

IHS - New Branches

 New IHS Branches.

The central committee of the IHS is pleased to announce, that with immediate effect, we are prepared to fund the costs to the branch (within reason!) for their first three speakers. We would like to think that this will assist  in the new branch being able to get on its feet  financially. We would require copies of receipts for payments made to the speakers or else, if preferred, the speaker could send his ‘invoice’ to Richard Brook, directly, for payment.

An Apology

 An Apology.

My editorial in the August Newsletter, sparked off a bit of a storm on social media. My writing, was intended with the best of possible intentions, to make people think about the state of the hobby today – namely lack of local IHS branches.

Quite obviously many people interpreted what I had said wrongly – perhaps I should have worded it differently and for that I apologise.

Defective gene statement

- (Added 4. Jun. 2018)

I.H.S. Statement Regarding the sale of the following at I.H.S. events: -

Spider royal pythons, jaguar carpet pythons and enigma leopard geckos.

We will be banning all base gene sales of the above at the June show as reported last year. We will then ban the sales of two gene morphs of the above at the September show and then a voluntary ban on all other morphs of the above at the November show. A TOTAL ban of all morph’s carrying these genes will be implemented from 2019.

This may not be implemented with the speed and haste that some of you want, but it is the way that we have decided to respond under the circumstances.

The I.H.S. is not saying people can’t breed and sell the above, we are saying that we feel it’s not good for the hobby and they should not be offered for sale at our events.

When the total ban of the above is implemented in 2019 it will also mean that they will not be able to come on any part of the venue to be exchanged. This includes the exchange room and the car parks of the venue.

With a voluntary ban in November we will see what morals the breeders of the above have?
Please note this is the stance of the I.H.S. we are making a start as people have requested, please do not say we are not doing enough it’s a start.

The above is how it will work at our events this year, I hope this explains things a little better than in previous posts what we will be doing
