In this letter we ask your attention on several points in connection with some preparations on our Mondial 2019 in Zwolle. To make the show happen and successful a lot of work have to be done. Directly after we heard that France had to withdraw the show in 2018 and Italy took over from France, we picked up this challenge for 2019.
A problem had to be solved, our own National show was already planned in 2019 and dates were already claimed by contract. In good cooperation with the COM Presidency we could hold on to the dates we contractually required to. We couldn’t change this, without losing a lot of money. Hopefully the participating countries wil support us in this matter and will send in their birds despite the early date in January.
A comity is already on track for more than a year. First in rough lines and now to the details. Every country who has organized a Mondial before knows what tremendous work should be done for a 4 days Mondial show.
The map for the commercial part and also the competition part is ready. On our website you can find already an overview. The commercial part is concentrated in the “IJsselhal”, the hall You probably know from the well-known bird market. The competition is situated in the “AA-hal” and the “Diezehal”. This is a rectangular hall. Between this both mentioned halls, the bird sales department will be taken place for NBvV members. Commercial bird sales will take place in in the commercial part in the “IJsselhal”. The entrance is situated in the Northern part of the “IJsselhal” (the side of the A1 highway).
To make this show successful a lot of things have to be done. A lot of volunteers are needed for a lot of different activities. It is our goal to inform you by newsletter about the way to go. We will ask our members to for help in anyway on any moment during the Mondial and the days before. On short notice the NBvV volunteers can sign up by sending a statement form to the organization comity.
To be ready in time it is important to receive all materials outward 20th December. We will start our building activities on the 21th and 22nd December. The sister organizations from Belgium, KBOF and AOB, will borrow us there materials complete with lights fixtures. The Dutch positions will also be provided with lighting.
We have to fold thousands of cages. Of course this carton cages are not suitable for gnawing birds. They will be accommodated in wooden cages or suitable other cages. In the COM section overview (to find on the website) you can find with bird in which cage will be placed.
After Christmas we will continue our work. The sales- and the competition hall, but also the singing canary departments have to be made ready. They will be accommodated in spacious rooms in the “IJsselhal”. Of now we are ready to receive the incoming birds.
It is a tremendous job. But……… with everybody’s help we will clear this.
