In response to the need for EDUCATIONAL shows that are also stressing a standard that is obtainable, the ICA is announcing the evolution of the match show. v  All of our judges have been breeding cockatiels for over 10 years with the average judge having bred for 18 years!   This experience is unprecedented in the United States cockatiel hobby and we are priding ourselves on the educational value of our shows.

The Western Region will be the focus of developing a well working model for educational matches.  We have the following match judges and match judging candidates:

Shanna Dollarhide- West Coast (California)  30 years experience
Leslie Huegerich-  East Coast (North Carolina)  20 years experience
Frank Lopez  West Coast (Arizona)  25 years experience
Susan Polinski-Barnes  West Coast (Las Vegas) 15 years experience
Karen Purdue East Coast (Georgia)  30 years experience

Shows will be FREE for local non profit clubs and we will be working on an awards package that includes “premiums” for your club.  We have focused on the Western Region but we will also be working towards several judges in the Eastern Region.   Additional information regarding our match shows will be available in the upcoming months.
