Welcome to the CPFA Website!

Important Notice

The CPFA regrets to inform all our members and friends of the passing of R.D. “Bob” Jones of Yorkton, Saskatchewan this morning (Thursday February 12 th ). Bob served this organisation with tremendous dedication and perserverence for many years as our Band Secretary and more recently Treasurer in addition to overseeing many other initiatives. One could say the CPFA belonged to Bob or Bob belonged to the CPFA, and in either case you would not be far off. Needless to say – Bob will be dearly missed and long remembered by all his friends in the hobby and all of us who had the pleasure of serving with him. We extend our deepest condolences to Bob's wife Pat and their family as well as close friends.

The CPFA Board would also ask that people not call the Jones household with CPFA related concerns.  Band orders and Memberships must be mailed with payment and will continue to be handled by Bob's wife Pat and other family members until further notice - no worries you will get your bands.
Please contact one of our directors if you need assistance. Your cooperation in this regard is appreciated.  As an organisation you can be sure we will look for an appropriate way of honoring Bob and all he did for us.

Congratulations to Clint Robertson for capturing top honours of both the Sarnia and Canadian Jacobin Club's awards at this special event.  An awesome looking Yellow Jacobin yearling got the nod from a panel of 3 judges over Guido Madrusan's Yellow Komorner Tumbler Hen that finished a close 2nd in the Parade of Champions.  Click the link below for photos and more info.

Thanks to all who braved some very nasty roads and wet weather to get here. Especially the Canadian Show Roller and Indian Fantail Club members whose participation makes this event possible.  The support of our hosts The Belleville Agricultural Society and the City of Belleville's Recreation and Facilities Department have been terrific as well - and key to keeping the costs of the show to a minimum.  It's a lot of work to put a show of this nature together for one day and I want to thank Jeff Waite, Jamie Chatten, Roger Boomhower, and my son Aaron Burn for getting it done.  Last but not least I want to thank our Judge for the Open Show - Jeff Draper who did a great job and was clearly committed to his role.  I have no reservations in recommending Jeff to any group as an All-Breed judge.  Good Luck to all in the year ahead.
