7 Annual report of the chairman Dear Modena friends, We can look back on some successful MCD events. We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the breeding friends of the East District, first and foremost the chairman Jan Schimmel and the two show directors Sven Vogel and Frank Lehmann. The autumn conference in Berlstedt marked the beginning of our club year. Under the leadership of Roland Teubner, people and animals felt very comfortable. The main special show was excellently organized and it really felt like you were invited to a large Modena family. Thanks again to the two exhibition directors and their families. The editorial meeting on the website and the news, which was planned for the annual general meeting, has unfortunately not yet taken place. Nevertheless, I would like to thank Rudi Schatz, whose ideas and efforts will hopefully soon also be supported by others. But now I want to keep looking forward. This year, our main special show in the Bavarian district offers the unique opportunity to improve the fund of our main club. Our HSS will be carried out on our own in the premises of the Neudrossenfeld small animal breeders. All members are called upon to support the Modena Club by participating as exhibitors and helpers. With Friday as the day of assembly and delivery, the costs for the individual should be reduced and everyone should be given the opportunity to arrive a little earlier for delivery in order to be able to help with the assembly. On Sunday we will release the animals early enough to give those who have come from further afield the opportunity to help with the dismantling for another hour or two. I see the care of the animals on the days of the show, as well as the cash desk staff and the payment of prize money, as no problem by the board members and exhibitors present. My big thanks go to our little boy (Gustav Bauer jun.), Who made all of this possible. I would like to make a big request to my fellow special judges. We have not made any claims regarding the billing. However, I appeal to everyone to think of the main club's cash desk when settling the accounts! I wish all of us the hoped-for success for the 2010 show season, especially our cashier! In the interests of our Modena Reinhard Bretting, Chairman 5

9 Show report for the 37th main show of the MCD at and in Narsdorf With only 553 Modena, the registration result unfortunately fell short of expectations. The single-row structure and the good visibility offered ideal conditions for the straightening work. Thanks to Sven Vogel and his team for this successful event in all respects. Breeding warden Bernd Beck gave the guidelines in the judges' meeting. The same proportions between body height, body length and body width as well as a broad, straight stance with a horizontal posture and well laid back neck and strongly drawn tail were the main requirements. Gazzi As always, the Gazzi started, with 73 animals there is a slight upward trend. 8.9 blue with bronze bands. This color scheme has been seen more strongly in the past. Missing body proportions, sloping and narrow stance and the head points were the most common requests. We liked the 0.1 (sg 95E) from K. Ohlendorf and the 1.0 sg 95E from J. Stöckl. Much better the 9.10 blue-bronze hammered ones. Sometimes very strong pigeons with strong stands, good head points and posture. But here, too, it is important to pay more attention to the same body proportions. The top animal was provided by Paul Switalla with v97mb, hv for J. Wanka, N. Kupfer and P. Switalla. Immediately afterwards, three lined with bronze shields, which left a strong impression in terms of figure and posture. 2x HV for Switalla. This was followed by individual animals in dark bronze shields, brownish pale with bronze bands and khaki pale with sulfur bands, here the 1.0 sg95z by R. Lutz was the best. 2.3 red pale and 3.5 red pale hammered. Fine pigeons at the top, rounded on all sides with the same body proportions, straight stance and a great firm spring. Neck installation and head points gave cause for criticism. V97MB Rudolf Lutz for a great pigeon and hv for M.Holler (2x). 2.2 yellow-white and 3.2 yellow-white hammered. They couldn't quite keep up with the red-pale ones, especially in the roundness of the body and in the head points. Sg95 for K. Kretschmer (2x) and F. Ramdohr. 4.1 red and a single animal in yellow graduated from the Gazzi. In the red, something was created again, great for this color is the young cock by Bruno Hanske (hv96eb), for whom the edge of the eye did not allow the highest grade. Schietti 21.19 blue with bronze bands. The average quality of this color was clearly better, 9x g illustrate this. Head points, missing body proportions and the necessary roundness, stance and posture were the wishes and deficiencies. In the lead some very classy representatives, v97mb for the ZG Kraus, hv for R. Andres and J. Schimmel. 25.29 blue-bronze hammered. In terms of numbers, the most strongly represented color, on average also better than the cohesive ones. The shield color has clearly changed 7

10 improved, so the required three - color was largely available. Animals with missing body roundness, weak stance or posture could no longer achieve so-called. V97MB for ZG Kraus, hv for T. Hertle, N. Kupfer and R. Schatz (2x). 2.2 lined with blue bronze shields without peaks followed by 2.2 blue with white bands and 2.1 lined with light blue shields. Here the judge showed a lot of sensitivity, because one cannot and must not compare these colors with the blue ones. Certainly a lot of breeding work is still necessary to raise the quality of these rare representatives. HvE F. Werner. 1.1 blue steel with sulfur bandage, 2.8 blue steel-sulfur hammered. Here it also applies that the breeding status requires concessions in the assessment. They sometimes look very delicate in the heads and the stands could be stronger, but figuratively very nice rounded types. Hv96EB for Sven Vogel, hve for J. Schimmel. 4.5 dark bronze shield unlined, 5.3 dark bronze shield lined. A very balanced collection that was particularly impressive in terms of its position, head points and also in terms of color. V97MB and 2x hv for Manfred Wiesner. 0.4 brown pale with bronze bands, 4.7 brown pale hammered. These colors made a strong impression. Typically, rounded, strong pigeons with a strong stance and attitude. Class! V97MB for Jan Schimmel, hv to P. Andres and J. Schimmel. 2.5 khaki steel with sulfur bandage, 1.4 khaki steel with sulfur hammer. Here, too, you have to make slight concessions in the assessment, but all animals in the so-called area show that a very even collection was shown here. Hv to the ZG Bretting and to V. Schwarze. The 3.1 dominant red (without highlights) was followed by the premier class, if you look at the ratings of the last few years. 22.26 pigeons in red pale. Here, the highest demands must be made in all matters in the evaluation. At the top were pigeons, which impressed with their rounded bodies, broad stance and excellent head points. V97MB for Ewald Hoßbach, VEB and 2x hv to Jacob Jahraus and to V. Schwarz. 34.16 red pale hammered. The same applies here as with the cohesive ones, it is noticeable that the tip slowly becomes wider. V97MB for Ludwig Beckmann (t), V97EB Thomas Hertle, V97EP Paul Swittala, hv to J. Jahraus (4x), E. Hoßbach and U. Pohl. 11.19 yellowish yellow. This color scheme could not keep up with the red pale, sometimes very coarse types with missing body rounding and weak head points. However, the animals exposed were convincing in all respects. V97EB Frank Lehmann, hv to L. Beckmann (t), Jacob Jahraus and Axel Pfützner. 9.13 yellow-pale hammered. The hammered ones were on average much stronger than the cohesive ones. Typically in the heads, rounded on all sides with the same body proportions and straight and wide in the stance. V97MB and V97EB to old master Jacob Jahraus, hv to ZG Bretting. 20.16 black. One problem here is certainly the ubiquitous fashion bronze, but I prefer a black person with light deposits in bronze and plenty of paint than too fragrant or dull pigeons. What is noticeable about this color scheme is the often lack of stand width, which is also associated with the necessary body width, which makes the pigeons look long and narrow. The top animals showed all the advantages of the breed and earned v97mb to Günter Schuffert and hv to M. Pook, R. Teubner and G. Schuffert. 13.8 red. This color scheme has made a definite step forward, very balanced types in the top, and some 8

11 great guys, but they failed in body and beak color. V97MB Bruno Hanske, hv to R.Andres. 7.13 yellow. The yellow ones are a bit on the spot at the moment, weak stands and lack of height gave cause for criticism. Very nice the 0.1 young from H. Wilz with hv96eb. 2.4 white. There is still a lot of catching up to do here in terms of breeding status compared to Europe. Sg94Z for G. Schiller. 1.3 black tiger; 1.1 dark bronze tiger; 2.4 black spotted; 0.2 brown piebald; 2.4 dark bronze shield piebald. The piebalds and tigers were much better to see in terms of quantity and quality. The 1.0 black tiger from ZG Kraus (sg95e) and the 1.0 black tiger from G. Schuffert (sg95e) made the best impression. 8.14 blue-mold with bronze bands. The molds are enjoying increasing popularity, but they have the same problems as the blue-cohesive ones. The body proportions do not fit and therefore the necessary body roundness is missing. Hv96E for V. Schwarz. 6.4 red pale mold. Much better the red-pale mold, with a great stand, proportions and head points. The highlight (also my personal one) here is a 1.0 young from Thomas Hertle. Class cocks with all the merits of the breed and rightly rated v97mb, hv also to T. Hertle. Magnani 14,13 multicolored. I remember the multicolored Magnani better. Rough, angular types with no rounded body, narrow or sloping stance were the points of criticism. The winner here was Peter Anders with v97mb and 2x hv. For the breeding committee Manfred Wiesner 9

12 F. Böhning mentioned the district's contribution of 25.00 to the news. It was found that this was a compensation for an annual general meeting in Berlstedt minutes agenda 1. Welcome 2. Remembrance of the dead 3. Reading of the minutes from annual reports with debate 4.1 of the chairman 4.2 of the treasurer 4.3 of the breeding warden 4.4 of the district chairman 5. Report of the Auditors with a motion to discharge the board of directors 6. Budget planning 7. Dates Dates 2010 and further 9. Motions and miscellaneous Item 1, welcome 1st chairman R. Bretting welcomed the 29 members present at the AGM at 9:30 am He particularly welcomed the honorary chairman of the Modena Club G. Callies. In addition, the honorary chairman of the Bavarian district G. Bauer sen. The breeding friends F. Kraus, W. Brinkmann, A. Clobes, N. Hallen and J. Sommer were excused. R. Bretting thanked J. Schimmel and R. Teubner from the East District for taking over and organizing the summer conference in Berlstedt. The agenda was adopted without objection. Item 2, honoring the dead In memory of our deceased members Joachim Eifler District East and Ernst-Walter Lang District Middle, those present rose from their seats. Item 3, reading out the minutes from 2008 The minutes of the AGM 2008 in Obertshausen were not read out because the minutes are printed in the News 2009. Item 4.1, annual report of the chairman With regard to his report in the News 2009, 1. Chairman R. Bretting stated that the first changes were made on the Internet. Further requests and changes for our website should come from the members in order to keep the site alive. He is already making some of the changes to the website himself. Otherwise, the 1st Chairman had nothing to add to his report and put it up for discussion. 2. Chairman H. Krengel added on the subject of the website that the first steps have been taken towards a better website and that the board of directors and its members are now obliged to continue improving the website. R. Schatz thought the Chairman's report in the News was too short. It does not contain any statements about the future, plans or goals of the MCD. He explained that we are all challenged to support the board of directors in matters of the Internet in order to be up to date on the Internet. There was also a debate on the subject of Modena ribbons. Wouldn't it be possible to get the tapes cheaper from another manufacturer? Bretting explained that at a lower price and above all with the same quality of the tapes, the manufacturer can be changed at any time. You should bring samples with you so that you can compare the quality. Item 4.2, annual report of the cashier According to our cashier Reinhard Schindler, the cash balance has increased due to the saving of the 2008 tapes (because the European show in France) and the premium increase. G. Bauer sen. As every year donated 50.00 for the cash desk of the main association. 10

13 saved postage and expenses through the publication in the news of the districts.The districts' contribution must also be made if the districts do not publish any invitations or exhibition papers in the news. See resolution at the annual general meeting in Reichertshofen. Item 4.3, annual report of the breed warden At the beginning of his report, breed warden B. Beck once again thanked the members for being elected breed warden. In his still short term in office, he was not able to achieve so much. He thanked R. Meinzer, M. Wiesner jun., R. Bretting and G. Bauer jun. for the good report on the European show in Illkirch / Graffenstaden, which is now also published on the Internet. The special judges Sommer and Rose are registered for the special show in Leipzig connected to the VDT show. He reported Rose and Böhning for Dortmund. He presented the new European model image that he recently received from J. Grauss. He immediately forwarded it to Reiner Wolf from the Federal Breeding Committee. Because of the European standard, a conference is taking place in Austria today in which R. Wolf is participating. The text has been revised, translated into German and incorporated into the German standard. Beck sees his task in the coming years in adapting our animals to this type. Finally, he asked the members to exhibit in large numbers at the main show and the special shows. Item 4.4, annual reports by the district chairwoman F. Böhning, district north, had nothing to add to his report in the news. H. Willhoff, West District, said that the first summer conference will be held with the Dutch this year. W. Friedrich, Mitte district, reported difficulties with the exhibition space in Oberthausen for the European show. The show may take place in Offenbach. The date is expected to change to the 19th and O. Bretting, Bavaria district, invited the members to the autumn meeting with young animal discussion in Reichertshofen. The 2010 summer conference will take place in the Bavarian district on the 25th and in the exhibition hall of the Thurnau poultry breeding association (95349 Thurnau, Kulmbach district). J. Schimmel from the Ost district had nothing to add to the report in the news. R. Meinzer, South-West district, invited the members to the young animal show on in Großbottwar. A new chairman is to be elected there. The European standard is also discussed. Item 5, audit report and discharge L. Beckmann and V. Schwarze checked the fund. The cashier Reinhard Schindler was confirmed that the cash management was flawless. The discharge was unanimous. Item 6, budget planning Treasurer Reinhard Schindler gave a brief overview of the expected income and expenses for 2010 with a balanced budget. The 130.00 Ring-Z of the VDT will also be awarded at the main special show in Narsdorf 2009. TOP 7, Dates 2009 The exhibition manager of the main show on the 7th and in Narsdorf, Sven Vogel, explained that it is important for the exhibitors 11

14 to take care of the required company number. Animals cannot be accepted without this company number. TOP 8, dates 2010 and others The main special show 2010 will be organized by the district of Bavaria with the help of members of other districts on the 6th and in the exhibition hall of the poultry and rabbit breeding association Neudrossenfeld e.v. (95512 Neudrossenfeld, Kulmbach district). Posting is on Friday. In order to save costs for the exhibitors and the show itself, the show is set up on Friday morning by the exhibitors themselves. Evaluation is on Saturday morning. The catalog should be available by Sunday at the latest. After the animals have been released on Sunday, the cages will be dismantled again by the exhibitors. A fixed amount for rent, ancillary costs, feed, etc. was agreed with the GuKZV Neudrossenfeld. The goal of this main show is to make money for the club. So the statements of the 1st secretary of the MCD and 2nd chairman of the GuKZV Neudrossenfeld G. Bauer jun. as well as the 1st chairman of the MCD R. Bretting. As W. Friedrich from the Mitte district already reported, the preparations for the European show TOP 9, motions and miscellaneous things were in progress. There was a longer discussion about the motion and the letter from Rainer Schmidt, Nord Bezirk In his application to the MCD, which was late with the 1st Chairman Bretting, he asked the MCD to discontinue the VDT booklet, which costs the VDT .00 annually. In another letter, R. Schmidt wrote of 6,500.00 from the BDRG to the VDT, which the VDT would not have forwarded to the special associations. It would have to be clarified whether there was a criminal offense for embezzlement. The MCD should investigate this matter and ask the VDT to transfer this 6,500.00 to the special associations. Resolution: It was decided that the MCD would not submit any further application to the VDT to abolish the VDT booklet. We will not, as requested, officially investigate the matter with the 6,500.00 on the part of the MCD. Mr. R. Schmidt should be informed in writing by the 1st chairman R. Bretting that his application was made too late and that he cannot submit it again for the AGM 2010! Another discussion about the Modena News was through the objection of R. Schatz. The news should be made more informative through reports on shows, the standard, reports from members, information about Modena, etc. So you could z. B. Compare the American and European types in the news. R. Schatz also suggested that an editorial team be formed from various members for the news. The comparison of the European with the American type was recorded as a hook for the News 2010. Breeding warden B. Beck agreed to make such a comparison. The new European sample image is to be shown as a stand at large shows. F. Droste suggested introducing a color of the year for the main show. The Zfr. R. Schatz, M. Wiesener jun., R. Meinzer, B. Beck, R. Bretting and W. Friedrich included. A corresponding meeting is to take place in April / May 2010. At 11:30 am, the 1st chairman, Reinhard Bretting, thanked the organizers for the wonderful weekend, the people present for their appearance and wished everyone a good appetite for lunch and a safe way home. Gustav Bauer jun. 1. Secretary 12

15 Annual Report of the East District With the organization of the summer conference and main special show of the Modena Club Germany, an eventful and busy year lies behind our district. Therefore I would like to especially thank the organizers and all helpers of the two highlights of the past breeding and exhibition year. My special thanks also go to the wives and family members who actively helped to master these events. Of course, we would have liked to have seen even better participation in these very successful events. Looking back on a breeding year has never been so difficult for me as this year. After our breeding friend Joachim Eifler passed away after a serious illness in April, we lost our breeding friend Ludwig Beckmann in a tragic traffic accident on the HSS exhibition Sunday. With this, our district lost two very committed breeders last year, who will leave a gap in our ranks that is difficult to close. We will always remember Joachim and Ludwig as passionate breeders and good friends. On we met in the restaurant Heiterer Blick in Schladebach for the spring conference. Zfr. Schimmel welcomed 17 breeding friends. Unfortunately Zfr. Stalk emerged from our district. Zfr. Beckmann read the minutes of the annual general meeting of our district in Oberlungwitz as well as the minutes of the YHV of the MCD in Obertshausen. Then Zfr. Mold out the breeding and exhibition year 2008 and informed those present about the status of the district treasury. Subsequently, the preparations for the summer conference of the MCD in Berlstedt and for the HSS of the MCD in the multi-purpose hall in Narsdorf were reported. The following was decided for further scheduling: Summer conference 2010 and 2011 in Oberlungwitz Gasthaus Zum Vierseitenhof, BSS 2010 together with the North District on the 11th and in Aschersleben and BSS 2011 on the 3rd Advent weekend in Gera. Explanations in front of the cages 13

16 The summer conference with young animal discussion and annual general meeting of the MCD was held by Zfr. Roland Teubner with the Thuringian breeding friends on the 19th and in Berlstedt. People and animals were well accommodated in the Kulturhaus Gasthaus Zur Linde in Berlstedt. Thanks again to Zfr. Teubner for the very good preparation and implementation of the conference. 125 pigeons (23 Gazzi and 102 Schietti, unfortunately no Magnani) from 23 breeders (12 of them from our district) were registered for the young animal presentation. The number of registrations was in line with the trend in recent years. However, we would have liked an even better participation. The connected animal exchange was very popular. A judges' meeting took place prior to the evaluation of the young animals brought along. In this, with regard to the new pattern description, particular attention was given to the same proportions between body width, body height and body length. The highlighted top animals came quite close to the ideal. Five animals were rated hv and awarded a Modena ribbon. They were presented by breeding friends Johann Wanka (Gazzi blue-bronze hammered), Franz Terhart (Schietti blue-bronze hammered, Rudi Schatz (Schietti blue-bronze hammered) and Ludwig Beckmann (Schietti red-white hammered and yellow-white hammered). A brief meeting took place during the evaluation of our district members to prepare the HSS in Narsdorf. In addition, the Zfr. Peter Linke and Friedhelm Loth were honored on the occasion of their 70th birthday. On Saturday evening an atmospheric, successful breeders evening took place. It was sometimes very funny. Roland Teubner's dance performance is sure to be remembered for a long time. But there was also a lot of shop-floor talk and discussion. The many intensive conversations have certainly helped to clear up some misunderstandings. So the waves for the next day's annual general meeting were largely smoothed out in advance

17 At the AGM on Sunday, Zfr. Reinhard Bretting unfortunately only 29 members. The first chairman, the first cashier and the breed warden gave their annual reports. The design of the Modena news and the website were discussed in detail. The news should be enhanced by reports on shows, the standard, reports from members, information about Modena, etc. It was decided that as many districts as possible should contribute to the design of the MCD website and the Modena News in order to make it more interesting and informative. Ideas and suggestions are in demand! There was a brief discussion about the cost of the Modena ribbons. Zfr. Schindler was able to report an increased cash balance. The Zfr. L. Beckmann and V. Schwarze had checked the cash register. Zfr. Schindler was confirmed that the cash management was flawless. The discharge of the treasurer and the board of directors was unanimous. A balanced budget is planned for 2010. Zfr. B. Beck presented the new European model image. The standard text has been revised and translated into German. It is to be adopted in the German standard. Zfr. S. Vogel reported on the preparations for the HSS 2009 in Narsdorf. The summer conference with YHV of the MCD as well as the HSS 2010 are organized by the district of Bavaria. Zfr. F. Droste suggested introducing a color of the year for the HSS. At 11:30 am, the 1st chairman thanked the organizers for the wonderful weekend, the people present for their appearance and wished everyone a safe way home. Fortunately, a large number of the district members present took part in the dismantling of the cages. The highlight of the past breeding year was certainly the implementation of the 37th HSS of the MCD from the 7th to in Narsdorf. This was well organized by our Modena friend Sven Vogel and his team. Already on Tuesday the cage was set up in the multi-purpose hall with the active help of the Bad Lausick breeding friends. The light-flooded, well-air-conditioned exhibition hall, with a single-row structure and tasteful decoration, offered the best conditions for people and animals. Unfortunately, the registration result of 553 animals (only 1 cage remained empty) was far below our expectations. The animals came from 45 exhibitors. It is a shame that some districts did not participate in our HSS and thus stayed away from the high point of the breeding year for us fashion breeders. However, the good participation of the members of our district in the HSS was very gratifying. After all, 20 exhibitors showed 236 animals. When the pigeons were put in on Thursday, there was already a lot of discussion in the cages. The focus of the discussions was on the Modenas already in use and the abundantly stocked animal exchange, but also on the difficult journey due to the many construction sites and diversions. On Friday the 73 Gazzi, 451 Schietti and 28 Magnani were judged by the judges B. Beck, R. Bretting, J. 15

18 Grauss, F. Kraus, K. Kretschmer, H. Kühn, J. Lange and J. Sommer, with breeding warden B. Beck acting as chairman with a reduced straightening order. The following animals were shown to be champions: Gazzi: 1.0 y blue-bronze hammered by Paul Switalla (district Bavaria) 0.1 y red-pale hammered by Rudolf Lutz (district Bavaria) Schietti: 0.1 a yellow-pale hammered by Jakob Jahraus (district east) 0.1 j black by Günter Schuffert (district center) 1.0 j red by Bruno Hanske (district north) 1.0 j red-pale gray by Thomas Hertle (district Bavaria) Magnani: 0 , 1 a multi-colored by Peter Anders (Bez. Ost) 17 times the top grade was excellent and 42 times excellent. The breeders in our district achieved the grade v 7 times and hv 22 times. Excellent! The most successful breeder was once again Zfr. Jakob Jahraus with 3 times excellent (1.0 a Schietti red pale, 1.1 a Schietti yellow pale hammered) and 7 times outstanding. He also became district champion. Fortunately, however, the high marks were distributed across a number of breeds. Zfr. Peter Anders was happy about the grade v to 0.1 a Magnani multicolored and 2x hv. Zfr. Ludwig Beckmann achieved v to 1.0 y Schietti red-pale hammered and 1 x hv, Zfr. Frank Lehmann v to 0.1 a Schietti yellow-white and Zfr. Schimmel v to 1.0 a Schietti brown-pale bronze hammered as well as 3 x hv. The breeding friends Roland Andres (3), Axel Pfützner, Uwe Pohl, Volkmar Schwarze (3) and Sven Vogel showed other hv animals. The evaluation of the district champion title (based on the 6 best animals of an exhibitor, but at least 3 young animals) yielded the following results: 1. Jakob Jahraus (577 points) 2. Jan Schimmel (574 points) 3. Ludwig Beckmann (573 points 16

19 Successful breeders The well-organized breeders' evening at the Gasthof Bubendorf was very successful, with honoring the successful breeders and an excellent dinner. Dance performances by a young dance group rounded off a main special show that up until then had run very harmoniously. Sunday morning passed in anticipation of the animals being handed out, as many still had several kilometers ahead of them. I would like to Zfr. To quote R. Schatz from his show report published on the Internet: It was a successful, well-organized fashion festival among good friends! Many thanks to everyone who contributed to the success! At the 58th VDT show in Leipzig in December 2009 there was a larger collection of a total of 262 Modenas. These came from 31 exhibitors. 16 Gazzi, 245 Schietti and 1 Magnani were shown. 12 breeding friends from our district with 114 animals and very good results took part in this exhibition. Zfr. R. Andres was able to achieve v 97 BLP with a 0.1 year old Schietti blue with bronze bandages. Zfr. J. Jahraus achieved v 97 LVEPL on 1.0 a Schietti red pale and hv 96 E on 0.1 a Schietti red pale. Zfr. J. Schimmel got v 97 EB on 1.0 y Schietti yellow-white and 5 times hv. Zfr. V. Schwarze was very successful with v 97 EB on 1.0 a Schietti blue horse with bronze bandages and also 5 times hv. Zfr. P. Rödiger was happy about 3 times HV. Breeding friends F. Lehmann and K. Ohlendorf received further excellent ratings. German champions in 2009 were the breeding friends V. Schwarze on Schietti blue with bronze bandages and J. Schimmel on Schietti blue with bronze bandages. Only one week later, the 91st National Breed Poultry Show (Bundessiegerschau) took place in Dortmund. There were only 80 Modena (8 Gazzi, 72 Schietti and no Magnani) from 8 breeders. Unfortunately, our district was not represented, which, however, was not surprising due to the good participation in Leipzig. Deviating from the original plan, this year's summer conference with annual general meeting and young animal meeting will take place on September 4th and 5th, 2010 in Vetschau. We ask for a good participation, as the new election of the board is pending. Our 19th special district show will take place together with the North District from the 11th to Aschersleben. All Modena friends are cordially invited to our events. Jan Schimmel 1st Chairman 17

20 Annual Report of the Mitte District Dear Modena friends, The year 2009 was a trend-setting year for the Mitte district with the implementation of the district show, after ten years in Dietzenbach, now again to organize itself and to make the decision to hold the European Show 2011 in our district . At the district show in Obertshausen, 305 Modena were exhibited and thus the goal of 300 Modena I had set was achieved. The assembly and dismantling by the members of the club, but also the help of the breeding friends from Obertshausen, went smoothly. It was the right decision to run the BSS on our own again.However, we must all continue to strive to welcome new fashion breeders to our club, to always put our beautiful breed in the foreground and to cultivate the sociability and friendship in our club. On January 2010 in Obertshausen, 305 Modena from 19 breeders were shown. The judges Jacky Grauss, Albert Clobes and Josef Sommer gave 11 times the grade excellent to the following Modena: Gazzi red pale 0.1 old M. Schmitt, Gazzi black 1.0 young, mb H. Seitz. At the Schietti, P. Simon blau m. Br. Bindings 0.1 young, Bernd Beck 3 times on blue br., MB 1.0 old, red pale 1.0 old, red pale, MB 1.0 old, Lothar Reppert, dark br. Sign 0.1 old, E. Hoßbach red pale 0.1 old, G. Schuffert black 0.1 young, H. Wilz yellow MB, 0.1 young and on Magnani multicolored Dr. Ulf Schneider 1.0 young. Furthermore, the grade excellent was awarded 30 times. The cup for the best Gazzi 1.1 won on black H. Seitz, the challenge cup for the best 1.1 of the show on schietti yellow H. Wilz, the cup for the 10 best Modena of the show went to B. Beck with 3 times V and 7 times HV. The district's 3 performance prizes were awarded to Gazzi Schwarz H. Seitz with 477 P., Schietti Schwarz G. Schuffert with 479 P. and Schietti red pale hammered B. Beck with 478 P. Despite the difficult weather conditions, Chairman Werner Friedrich was able to welcome many visitors among others also Mayor Bernd Roth and the district councilor Carsten Müller, who both delivered greetings to the exhibitors. At the award ceremony, the chairman honored several breeders for many years of loyalty to the Modena Club. It was a successful show, with lots of Modena, in beautiful surroundings and stimulating discussions with breeders. The next BSS will take place again in Obertshausen. The summer conference took place on the breeding grounds and in the clubhouse in Obertshausen according to the tried and tested model. The event was carried out by the club members and me in the usual way. I was able to welcome 28 members and 6 breeder women, including the honorary members Alfons Finkernagel and Josef Sommer.

22 Discussion of the young animals by breeding warden H. Rose with our Modena friends at the young animal show Awarding of the 1st chairman W. Friedrich to breeding friend Kurt Bodensohn at the young animal show in Obertshausen 20

23 showed a total of 77 Modena, 20 Gazzi, 45 Schietti and 12 Magnani, which were evaluated by the breeders in the tried and tested way. The following animal briefing was carried out by the breed warden Bernd Beck and Josef Sommer. Each Modena was discussed and judged based on the breeding status. The 7 group winners were then presented with Modena badges. A short meeting was also held, with the topics, main summer conference and main special show in the East District, the BSS in Obertshausen on its own and the European show. When the weather was nice, the summer conference ended with a cozy get-together and the board thanked the organized association for the Good hospitality and from the breeder women for their participation and the cake donation. The main summer conference with YHV of the main association took place in Berlstedt with the breeding friends in the East District. It was carried out in an excellent way and we from the district participated with almost the entire board, but unfortunately only 2 breeders in our district showed their young Modena. 8 breeders from Mitte visited the HSS in Narsdorf (East District) and Günter Schuffert managed to achieve a champion on schietti black 0.1 young with V97 MB. Another Modena band went to E. Horsbach on schietti red pale 0.1 old with V97. It was a nice show with a sociable breeders' evening at the Modena friends in the east. The annual general meeting took place on April 5th, 2009 in Ronneburg-Hüttengesäß at our breeding friend Erdt. In the regular elections, the first chairman Werner Friedrich and the first secretary Peter Simon were confirmed in their offices. The number of members in the district is currently 65 members and 1 young person and remains constant with 3 entries and 3 exits in the club. This year 4 board meetings, the AGM and a meeting at the summer meeting were held. I would like to thank my board members for their good work. Thanks also go to the special judges in our district for their not always easy office. I wish you all a lot of beautiful young Modena and remain with breeder greetings Werner Friedrich Chairman 21

27 Annual Report of the District of Bavaria Our young animal meeting in autumn 2009 took place again in Reichertshofen with an impressive number of animals. Thank you very much to the hospitality staff of the club. The appointment on Saturday has now worked well. With our district special show 2009 we took part in the 5th Bavarian chicken pigeon show in Straßkirchen. Our animals were well housed so far. Unfortunately there were only 276 animals in the cages; including 46 Gazzi. The judges awarded the grade V 12 times. A good percentage that also indicates the good quality of the animals on display. Overall, a grade point average of 93.5 points was achieved. Unfortunately only one exhibitor at the Magnani again. The annual general meeting took place several times with our breeding friend Adolf Muggenthaler in Tegernheim. Since there were no changes in the club, the awarding of the fashion prizes was in the foreground. The Gazzi champions were Rudi Lutz (0.1 young red pale hammered) and Paul Switalla (1.0 old bronze hammered). With the Schietti this was Thomas Hertle (1.0 old blue bronze hammered) and Helmut Kinateder (0.1 red pale hammered) With the Magnani Joachim Rödel received a championship. Breeding friends Hertle, Switalla, Kraus, Kupfer, Lutz and Bretting received fashion ribbons. Nikolaus Kupfer received the Fahrmeier victory shield and the Rexauer challenge cup Josef Stöckl. Breeding friends Georg Schiller and Stefan Finzel received the silver fashion pin. Johann Eschbaumer received gold for 20 years. Unfortunately, two breeding friends left us again through death. These are Alfred Riedel from Schönwald bei Selb and Franz Zollhauser from Ainring. A quiet breeding year with satisfied Modena friends.

38 Annual Report of the North District Dear Modena friends, 2009 was another successful year for our North District. It pays off if you as a board member take care of yourself and don't leave everything to chance, even if you as a board member show that you take the task entrusted to you seriously and that you are committed to it. Seen in this light, our board of directors worked very effectively and with great dedication, for which I would like to thank all my colleagues on the board. Our board meeting took place again with our current 2nd secretary Manfred Wiesner, jun. in Suthfeld / Riehe. Our annual general meeting and the further activities of the district have been planned for 2009. We met for the annual general meeting on March 29th in Vornhagen. A lively animal exchange took place even before the meeting.I was able to welcome 24 breeding friends. After the breeding awards were handed over, the annual reports followed. The allocation mode of the W. Meier-Ged.-Volume was changed as follows: 10 Modena, all recognized colors, young and old of an exhibitor are rated. The board elections resulted in some changes, the first chairman and the second cashier were re-elected. Rudi Schatz was elected as an assessor as moderator for our website. Surprisingly, the breed warden M. Wiesner, jun. his office for health and after the assessment of the pigeons all breeders could still laugh. 36

39 professional reasons available, which was generally regretted. Jürgen Lange was unanimously elected as the new breed warden. Manfred Wiesner jun. happily made himself available as the second secretary and received the unanimous trust of the breeding friends present. Our website is very well received by many breeders not only from Germany but also from other European countries. The board is very pleased about this. On we already had over hits. Only the forum and the guest book are still lacking; but don't worry, Rudi Schatz or our webmaster Herbert Wicke will help everyone who has problems using it! The meeting instructed the board of directors to find out about the implementation of the resolutions of the annual general meeting of the MCD regarding the MCD website. Because there is always a reason not to do something. M. Wiesner and I took part in the board meeting of the MCD on Whit Monday in Obertshausen. In future, the board meetings will take place on the Friday evening before the summer meeting. Our young animal presentation took place again in Rodenberg on September 13th. 25 breeding friends presented their 70 young animals. The plaques were won by F. Sahlenbeck, K. Walthemate, B. Hanske and R. Heitmann. At the summer conference of the MCD 19./20. September in Berlstedt, District East, 7 breeding friends from the north took part. 123 Modena were registered.

The Bundesschauen started once again in Hanover. 38 Modenas were not the most, but an enormous increase compared to the coveted Blue Ribbon this time was won by R. Heitmann, further hv grades went to the exhibitors R. Schatz 2 x, R. Kirchhoff 2 x and W. Hansing. In 2010 we will endeavor to have another special show in Hanover, so let's go to Hanover. 7 breeding friends from the north took part in the HSS of the MCD in Narsdorf and exhibited approx. 90 Modena.

This is also not achieved every day. Our 35th BSS took place on 28/29. November in Ahrensburg-Hoisdorf. 367 Modena, 90 of them from Denmark, were a great result. The 5 PR awarded 5 x the grade V and 28 x the grade hv. The Modena ligaments were won by E. Houpst, R. Schatz twice, R. Heitmann and F. Werner. The Hoisdorfer ribbons went to H. Stuhlmacher and R.

44 Annual Report of the District West Dear breeding friends, here is the report on the activities of the District West in the past year. The annual general meeting was held on at Engelbert Keller in Pulheim. 11 breeders came here, some with their wives and two Dutch breeding friends. We were greeted with a hearty goulash soup and drinks. Engelbert Keller had organized a carriage ride for our women. The upcoming elections for the board of directors took place in great harmony. Special thanks go to the two board members Hermann Figge and Günter Kiwitt, who for health reasons no longer made themselves available as cashiers or secretaries for re-election. The newly elected board is composed as follows: 1st chairman: Hubert Willhoff 2nd chairman and cashier: Friedrich Sahlenbeck Secretary: Angela Martens Breeding warden: Norbert Hallen In consultation with the Dutch breeding friends, a joint young animal meeting should be held in the Netherlands for the first time.

The three judges complemented each other perfectly and passed on important information for the breeder. The grade hv was awarded six times. Whereby we could win an HV Franz Terhart and Hubert Willhoff. Participants in the young animal meeting at Modena West and the Netherlands. 42
