According to IBC rules,you do not have to be an IBC member to show in the New Breeders,you can show for 1 year,after that you have to be an IBC member.

I just got word that it is confidential to members only. The good news is that they are working on making it available to the public. Not sure when, probably a month or months from now. Until then, smile and wait please. :)

Oh for reals Bill? Did not know that. But then how would you get the standard and all that information which is confidential to members only? Good information here! :)

As for the standards,I am not sure!
You could try the FaceBook page and ask.
I will ask around.
I can understand some parts being of limits unless you are a member,but don't know why that would be.
Maybe Karen can chime in here.

We are going to get the web site set up different than what is there. When it it finished, for the public to view the standards will be posted. In time we will have them in other languages. They can not be copied to other sites though.

You can show without being a member.. but you get no year end awards or points. Membership is pretty reasonable.. and you get access to the TA [technical library] and FLARE!. Flare is the e-zine put out every other month and it has been over hauled and quite a nice magazine.

Why all the secrecy?? It drives people away. I don't want to pay a membership fee to find out if this is something that is doable for me, and has goals I would like to meet. What if it's not?
No one is asking for access to all the club's info for nothing, but I've seen the questions over and over again of HOW does one show and WHAT can one show. Every club from 4H to the AKC to RPSI puts that info out there and doesn't suffer for it, so maybe someone could answer this for Karen and others, please?
NOT secrecy.. just have not had the information put into a functional web site. That has changed. I and a few others are part of a technology committee that will get that site up in the next few months.We are in last stages of getting things together for the proposal before the sitting boards. I know it is kinda a mess.. but should be a LOT better soon.

I was just curious to know how people can ship their bettas off to a show and how they can arrive in prime condition to be shown.

A few shows and you get the hang of it. Really pretty easy and the fish do fine. I have lost only 2 and the got to close to a heat pack.
