General Business:

1. Al Brenan thanked Wayne Ingleton for the enormous contribution Wayne has done as Publicist of the MGPS Magazine and all the achievements Wayne has done since being one of the founders of MGPS. Al also thanked Graeme Rantall for his contribution as Secretary of MGPS

3. Wayne Ingleton asked for feedback on having other breeds at our MGPS National show or to use any spare cages to sell birds. Consensus was not to have other breeds as this could compromise our own entries and to have any spare cages for those wishing to sell birds.

4. Noted that a New World Record for entries was accomplished at this year’s MGPS National Show held at Bundaberg 2014. 705 Large and Bantam Moderns.

5. Bruce Paton suggested that in future shows to have separate colours rather than have them all in AOC. He suggested that when entries are collated to divide them depending on the numbers.

10. Letter from Geoff Reimers was presented at the AGM and read by Al Brennan. Geoff submitted a proposal that the MGPS adopt a third level on their Judges Panel. The main benefits is that MGPS can help train new judges which could promote the breed as consistency of judging could be achieved and more qualified Modern Game judges for clubs to use. MGPS committee members are to review the letter and advise of decision.

11. Gary Phillips suggested contacting all the old breeders and getting some articles, old photos and making this into a book which the MGPS could distribute. MGPS Committee to discuss.
