CREDIBILITY


A discerning eye will differentiate between real and hyped,or fanciful performances. We all want recognition or a piece of the action. I value fed or National wins over 5,ooobirds, over 500 miles on the day against the wind,over 700 miles on the second day,or a sprinter with over 20 individual firsts. Wise to spot hyperbole and rhetoric aimed at pulling in sales for money. RPRA, award winning results are often good to outstanding,and all International wins are meritorious. Nice to realise that Barcelona is the final arbiter of excellence in the UK.

NO FAST TRACK TO THE TOP


There are some who bask in the limelight and seem to enjoy it. The question remains,if they have put in the time and dedication to give justice to the position.? I tend to favour those people with deep ,penetrating knowledge and experience and some outstanding racing results,as it is the pure nature of the sport that needs to be perpetuated. The doctors and academics are qualified to write books of reliable information and fact. I like to see years of study ,placed in print for all to see. A discerning eye will spot any charlatans in the game,from the fame-driven society which it is. Wise to cut your teeth at club level ,and aim for the top over many years of focused enthusiasm. Then perhaps,you will have earned your place as a pundit or expert in the field.

CLAIMS/RECORDS/ACCURACY.


We all like to be top of the pile in the sport ,to have our day in the sun or the limelight of recognition. Claims of champions may be tenuous or made for ego gratification and commercial reasons. The big i am psychological trait rises and falls like theatre curtains. Pressures to be the greatest ,in a fame driven pigeon culture bear down on susceptible individuals. Marathon racing into Ireland has an interesting way to go ,and there will be noble attempts that command attention,especially around the fabled Barcelona International race. Wise to link with the BICC in this desire and objective,give credit to the organisation ,as the cttee provides a wonderful and unique service to the international racing community. In the future the greatest birds,where record claims may be possible will be under the umbrella of the BICC. Individual fanciers need to recognise that they are communication links in the sport as a whole and part of the big picture. I like the International essence of the clubs central structure and philosophy.

THE JIM EMERTON MENSA TROPHY


This is a solid silver,antique salve that i have donated to The British International Championship Club. The recipients in 2017 for the 2 bird ,mean average from Barcelona are the Padfields of Wales. They are pigeon racing men of distinction , and have dedicated their flying lives to being great champions from the peerless Barcelona International race of pigeons,which holds the most prestige and kudos in the world. All pigeon racing pundits and pioneers are in admiration of 2 men of great skill and focus.

THE AFTERLIFE.


On the death and decay of the physical body ,it may be reduced to dust,atoms and the smallest particles. A pleasant idea is to contemplate the idea of going back into nature,giving life to the earth. Human beings may have a perception or feeling of a spiritual self,as beings on planet earth. Despite my best efforts,i have no evidence of the continuation of this presence after the metamorphosis of the physical body. In our minds and brain generated we may have dreams or lasting images of people who have passed-this is as real as it gets to me, despite the real experience of being out of body-
