Saturday August 5th saw 60 members send 1145 birds to the second Cheltenham race of the yb programme. to avoid the poor weather including thunderstorms, the birds were released at 08-00 into a light w.s.w. wind, veering more westerly en route. returns were excellent, so well done to Alan Smith and alys for getting the birds away nice and early.

Congratulations to Mick Stone of the Ormiston Park club in Derby, Mick took 1st fed on 1551 with a blue cock, no details but I know mick has been flying really well with the Eric Ceuleman strain, well done Mick, not only on topping the fed, but also on an excellent season. fed secretaries Graham and Eleanor Evans were runners up on 1548 with their winner at castle Gresley, a blue hen.

Alan and Liz Houldsworth of the Etwall club have started their yb season off in terrific style, this week saw them take 5 positions in the fed top twenty, they were 3rd and 4th on 1541; 1540; and had three more in 17th; 18th; and 20th spots. their first two were both cocks, the first a Lambrecht x Rob Pearson Ceuster, then a Rob Pearson, Ceuster another derby loft with their y.b team in tip top form is that of Mr & Mrs Paul Todd of Oakwood, flying at the brackens, they took 5th; 9th; 12th; 13th; and 14th fed on 1539.8; 1538.1; 1534(2) and 1533. John Gilbert of Birch Coppice was 6th and 7th fed on 1539.7; 1538.4; the first a Wildie cock, then a Wildie x Lambrech cock.  Completing the fed top ten were Mr & Mrs John Passey & family of Appleby Magna, they took 8th; 10th; & 11th spots on 1538.3; 1537 (2). Typical y.b result really, dominated by a few lofts, four lofts took 16 of the top 20 prizes, and with the westerly wind, all on the east side of the fed.  the weather patterns are changing, but we can never seem to move the wind out of the west when it comes to the y.b season?
