Virtual show invitation and rules
firstname.lastname@example.org - 11:17To all IKGH members
This show is only for IKGH members.
GUPPY KEEPERS SOCIETY (UK) first online virtual show
IKGH members are invited to take part in our new formal virtual guppy
The situation with the covid 19 pandemic has resulted in all IKGH
European Championship shows being cancelled together with other European
'international' guppy shows. It may be that this continues for the
Whilst we are not able to meet in person, it is still possible to have
the flavour of guppy shows by means of the internet and so called
virtual shows. Guppy Keepers Society (UK) have invested a lot of time,
together with Ralf Loch to further develop the computer programme used
for organising and running a normal IKGH guppy show so that it can be
used for a virtual guppy show.
There have already been several online shows, many not to IKGH rules,
and mostly taking several weeks to produce the results. This newly
developed format will allow an online show to take place as near as
possible to all respects of a normal meeting and guppy competition,
including the timings.
Breeders must pre register to obtain a special number that must be
included in the video (ie new and original video). The video entry must
be received by 6pm on the Thursday before the show. They will be
uploaded by the host club so that the judging will take place on the
Saturday. The results will be available instantly when the judging is
complete, certainly by the end of Sunday. No more waiting for the
results of a virtual show.
The classes and standards and judging will all be as near as possible to
having a live guppy show.
