Burton S D Fed Kingsdown 25-09-18

BURTON & SOUTH DERBYSHIRE FEDERATION.

 

ROB HORTON TAKES TOP TWO OUT OF KINGSDOWN AND WINS FED BREEDER BUYER TO CAP A GREAT DAY.

Saturday September 15th saw the curtain come down on the 2018 season, with the young bird special race from Kingsdown.  54 members sent 590 birds which were liberated at 09-40 into a south west wind, which was virtually dead west at the home end.

Congratulations to Rob Horton of the Birch Coppice club on taking 1st; 2nd; 7th; 8th and 9th fed on 1719; 1718; 1705; 1704; 1702.5. The fed topper was an Alec Docx mealy pied hen off James Dutton stock, followed by two Lambrecht’s and another Dutton docx. Rob picked up £379-90 pools, Rob thought he hadn’t got any of his main poolers early doors, but I think his wife pooled the second one by mistake, which picked up £349-90, one of them days for Rob!!

Rob Horton caps a brilliant day by taking 1st breeder buyer.

The 2018 fed breeder buyer race took place from Kingsdown; the birds were liberated at 09-10 into a SW wind.  Rob Horton had a day to remember, as well as taking 1st & 2nd fed in the federation special race, he also took 1st prize in the federation breeder buyer race with one of his own birds, a Lambrecht hen I believe? Rob will pick up £1000 plus the gold medal / coin. An excellent performance this, the hen doing 1703 ypm, a very creditable velocity in such a small convoy!!

Mr & Mrs K Haslam & Son of The Bulls Head were 2nd & 3rd, again with their own birds, winning a lovely sum of £1250.

Ray & Jean Lees & Miller were 4th with one bred by Jim Parker & Son, this will earn each loft £125 each. Total paid out £2500.
