LANARKSHIRE FEDERATION

Tom Corrie jnr

Well we have arrived at the last race of the season, thank goodness said a lot of fanciers. It’s been a very difficult campaign for losses this season. As usual everyone has their opinion but the only one that counts is turning up to the AGM and make your vote count. Change is required as the status quo just isn't an option! The future of your great sport has never been more at risk, we have to rethink our young bird racing.

 

GWP Macaloney set up

Paul Macaloney showing his recent 1st Open federation winner "Mayday"

 

This week takes us to Kelso, a race point that is a hit or a miss for youngsters, old birds seem to race well out of it, but already this season the federation had one of its worst races in decades from here with the youngsters. Anyway, we arrived back at Kelso in the Scottish borders. Only 900 birds plus 2 Fauldhouse club baskets were liberated at 08 00hrs in a light south west wind. The winning birds took around 1hr 24 minutes for the 64-mile journey. The birdage speaks for itself!

 

Like most weeks the early birds made good time, in the 1300ypm with others struggling. This week’s winners of 1st Open federation is the brilliant GWP Macaloney who win the first 12 in the federation. What a performance recording over 60ypm faster than any loft in the federation. What can you say about these fanciers that already has been said? There is no one that can put in team performances like these guys. The federation all-time record holders have a record that will never be repeated!

 

This week’s winner is “Mayday” bred by the May family, from their Spider-Man lines x their Belg Yves De Witt Birds. This cock was also 2nd Federation 3,553 Birds, beaten on drop by loft mate few weeks. Well done to Wullie & Paul who also win the Combine average.

 

Well done Jim Cameron, had a "brilliant" YB season winning the Centre section YB average topping the leader board.
