Like last year, I wanted to underline the international character of the Internet Show by inviting a judge everyone knows. I personally had the privelege to assist Ghalib Al-Nasser at the 2004 Open International NGC-DBS Show in Hapert. On that day I enjoyed his view on budgerigars, but also his belief in the necessity of educating people starting in the world of budgerigars, also during his busy job as a judge. He really took the time to explain his decisions to his assistants, although it did get him into problems with the show manager that day.
I did not forget about this, so in December 2006 I asked both Ghalib and Janice if they were interested to judge the 2nd Internet Baby Show. Also Ghalib did not forget:"Yes, I do remember you well because every time I tried to talk to you and your friend, your show manager was getting upset and if judges do not explain then how fanciers will learn?"In that same email Ghalib and Janice accepted the invitation. I don't think everyone realises the amount of effort spent to organise but also judge an Internet Show, so I want to thank the judging couple here once more for a job well done: thanks a lot Ghalib and Janice!
