The Logan Shield came into being after the Budgerigar Society of South Australia (BSSA), sent a team of birds to Melbourne to compete in their Gardner Shield.   At the first attempt in 1974 with 11 Victorian teams competing, the BSSA came 4th and in 1975 came 3rd, this time against 15 Victorian teams. These results established the competitiveness of the South Australian birds.

It was suggested in 1977 that a similar competition be held to stimulate team spirit and friendly rivalry amongst budgerigar breeders from the 6 existing clubs in South Australia, including mixed bird clubs.

The then secretary of the BSSA, Lal Logan, who had held this position for 18 years, was honoured to have his name used for the competition.  Lal purchased and donated the shield which was then named in his honour and is still used to this day. The first Logan Shield was hosted by the BSSA on the 2nd of April 1977 at St John’s Hall, Halifax Street, Adelaide with the 6 existing clubs competing.   The BSSA won with 196 points followed by Central Districts with 170, North East with140, Port Pirie with 131, Southern with 74 and Western with 60 points.  

Unfortunately, at the time Lal was in hospital so he was unable to present his shield. In July of the same year he passed away and sadly never saw the shield competition take place.

The Logan Shield is a yearly reminder of Lal and his wife Thelma, both having so graciously donated their time and effort to the BSSA and to the budgerigar fancy since its foundation in South Australia in 1948.

In 1964, a meeting between a group of New South Wales, Victorian and South Australian budgerigar fanciers resolved that a National Teams Competition should occur. More serious discussions occurred in 1972 between these three states thus the first competition would commence in Victoria in 1975. The National Show has continued annually ever since and expanded to include seven states / zones which effectively brings together the best breeders and the best young exhibition budgerigars in Australia. 

The Logan Shield is now our State’s selection show for the Australian National Budgerigar Council (ANBC) Championship Show and is hosted annually by the Budgerigar Council of South Australia (BCSA).

The Logan Shield remains as a reminder of a great budgie man.
