Registration of Recognised Rings
All members, including Honorary and Junior members of any metropolitan affiliated club must have filed with the V.H.A. Ring Secretary a list of all the ring numbers that are owned by them. This initial list on the prescribed form must be submitted with every application for new membership. The initial ring list must show the following:
All ring numbers on birds that are bona fide property of the new member; all numbers that are on birds that are on loan to the new member; together with the name of the owner of those birds; and a declaration that all the ring numbers listed are the total number of birds housed by the new member.
An initial fee per ring shall be paid except in relation to the V.H.A. rings of the current seasonís issue. If the member is transferring to the VHA from another Melbourne Federation for the first time, no initial ring fee will be charged on any rings listed on the Initial Ring list. Any other additional rings obtained by a member must also be registered in his name. In the case of partnerships the ring numbers shall be registered in their joint names. The relevant fee will be set from time to time by the VHA Executive Committee.
